Okey dokey. Here I am! With... GUESS WHAT?!? Another Project!!! Woohoo!!!
And even though I'm not a real fancy-pants and don't like to dress up... You can always look at other "fancy" black-tie stuff I've done!
Now... I know you might all get tired of my
distressing out on everything, but just so you know... It's here to stay! However... the Chevron trend HAS GOT TO GO! I used Distress Inks, Stickles, the Cricut Explore Air, and all the stuff I love so much again! What a flippin' shock, right?
Designing things... it's fun. And so I wanted a night of magic. Magic Night. I was thinking "Puttin' on the Ritz".
And I'm totally not apologizing or anything if you can't get that song out of your head now. Deal. Top hats... Canes... Glitter... Glitz. "Puttin' on the Ritz!" Yes... I love '80's music!!!!
I placed the top hat cuts , the bands, the bowties and the buttons all on a grey card that I had distressed with a darker grey. Then Stickle-d the **** of them! lol! I love Stickles!
Be sure if a big ol' glob comes out, use a paint brush to smooth it all down.
Heck! Use a paint brush anyway to make it all Even Stevens.
I used a craft knife to scrape up the excess... the best I could.
Forgive the blurry pics... I totally don't know what came over me!
And again, I Stickle-d the letters on while they were still on my mat... Just to make my life (and crafting a tad easier). It works.
Just be sure it's all dry and all before you try to peel it up and it comes off/tears off in a pulpy mess!
And... just another note... before you
or I go over the glued-down stuffs with clear plastic (like I've done before...) make sure the Stickles have dried.
I love magic. And the Cricut, Stickles, and glue make it all magical!
Up next is Michelle
