Terrific Tuesday Tip…Spanish Moss

First up…we want to THANK YOU THANK YOU for all of the amazing Design Team applications. WOWOWOWOWOW is all we can say. This is not going to be easy. If you were here the other week  you saw that our David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system debuted some EXCLUSIVE kits on HSN  so make sure you get yours HERE!

We are working on the Design Team applications and should have an answer for you SOOOOOOOOOOOON!  I just got back from a Holiday long-weekend so once we get caught up we will let you know.


Today we have some more Spring inspiration for you!

Here is a little bit about this project from Andrea and how she used some Spanish Moss on her project. It looks so GREAT with the earth tones from the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core collections.

I cut elements from a sheet of the Spring Seasonal  Impressions cardstock and then I sanded them and applied Paper Glaze medium to each piece before mounting them over the exact same areas of the teal Spring Seasonal Core Impressions page. I used the light colored Kraft Shattered cardstock for my backround and covered the surface with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Wild Honey to bring out the crackling. My nest and egg were die cut using the Picturesque Cricut cartridge. I used more Shattered Kraft in brown and teal blue and distressed the edges of the nest a bit with a tool before tucking in some Spanish Moss for realistic texture.

And a close up of that fabulous detail:

Love the look of the Spanish moss with the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered!

Happy Spring! Stay tuned for more Easter Projects this week. We have some good ones!
