Wednesday Inspiration

I am back with another Wednesday Inspiration.

Today I bring you some fun sparkle. I used some Tattered angels Glimmer mist on some leaves I found outside! It was really easy to do. Just make sure your leaves are not too dry and brittle.

Here are the leaves I started with.

Lay them out on some scratch paper. Next I sprayed the leaves with the glimmer mist.

If you get too much on the leaves you can blot the excess off with a paper towel. I like mine kinda blotchy in some places.

Next I embossed one of the leaves once the glimmer mist was dry. I used the Argyle Cuttlebug Embossing folder. It gave the leave a fun texture.

And here the card is all assembled. I used some Basic Grey papers. The tag I created from some packaging from the chipboard quote sticker. I love it when I can recycle!! Add some ribbon and a few brads and your card is complete.

Have fun playing with glimmer mist on non tradition's fun!!

The next card I created I used a free digital stamp from Digital Delights. I thought this little ghost was just too cute to pass up.

I colored the image with my Copics and then added some Stickles for the sparkle.

The vellum behind my image is embossed using the Houndstooth Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I am not sure who the Boo paper is...I have had it for so long.....*grins*. The ribbon is American crafts and the buttons are from my stash.

I hope you have time to hop on over to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. I am sure there will be so much eye candy there.

Thanks for stopping by today, Hugs...Jenn K
