Washi Meets...CAS(E) This Sketch Tree Card

Hello,

I bought the tree stamp set last month and when I saw the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch, I just had to take it off the box! (yup, it was still in the box that it came in, waiting for a spot in the drawer unit I'm trying to organize...)


I stamped the tree trunk/branches, and I stamped and heat embossed the leaves/flowers in turquoise. Then, I stamped them again, in green (Memento Pear Tart, I believe).
I added 3 strips of washi tape on the panel, stamped the sentiment (CTMH) and adhered the panel on the card.

Challenges:
1. CAS(E) This Sketch #119

2. Addicted to Stamps #141: Anything Goes
3. Word Art Wednesday #180: Anything Goes/Family Friendly Challenge

{Tue} Technique: Cards using DIY Glitter Glue Video Tutorial

Hello, 

Today I'm sharing a video tutorial!
I love glitter, but the glitter glues I buy never seen to have enough glitter...so sometimes, I make my own. Although, loose glitter is a nightmare...I must admit! 
But since I still have them (what was I thinking when I bought them?), I thought I should use them once in a while! =)

Here's the card I used as example in the video:

Challenges:

Here's a card I've made previously:



Hope you like it!


Thanks for watching!
