I am doing some Design work for "The Robin's Nest" they are a scrapbook company with lots of great paper, rub-on's and some fun embellishments. So this card was made using their products. When I first got my box in the mail - I could not wait to play with the rub-on's and you all know rub-on's are wonderful or NOT. These are wonderful and I tested them on everything as you will see in this cards. They are Great rub-on's......

Rub-on's: "Snow Fun"
Dew Drops: Aqua marine, and Moonstone

Cardstock: Blue and White
Blue Ribbon: Anna Griffin
Snowflake Brad: unknown
Adhesive: Rubberstamp Concepts - Super Adhesive Tape

Directions:

3) Cut Blue ribbon to fix your card base and add "Snow" rub-on from same collection. See how well the rub-on worked on the ribbon and my ribbon is very textured.... how cool is that!
4) Add snowflake brad to ribbon before you adhere to card base. Adhere to middle of card.
5) Apply "Kids of sled" to white cardstock and cut around them.
6) Add Very aggressive tape to bottom of card (I used "Super Adhesive Tape"). Place "kids on sled in the corner of the card. Add Aqua marine, and Moonstone over the tape.

Easter Eggs


Here is a fun way to make your Easter Eggs this year. Let your imagination go wild with Memories Mists and Memories Resist.

Supplies:

Eggs – hard boiled or remove the insides

Memories Mists – any color you want

Memories Mists – Iridescent –

Memories Resist

Additional embellishments as desired


Direction:


1) Hard boil your eggs or use the old blow them out method. To Do the blow out method: You poke a small hole in both end of the egg carefully. You blow into the hole on one end and the egg will come out of the hole on the other end.

2) Make sure you egg is DRY, this is a very important step – because the Memories Resist will not stick to a wet egg.

3) Draw any design or image you want onto the egg surface. Then you open your bottle of Memories Resist you will notice a small nib, which will allow you to make many different designs on the surface of your eggs. Set your eggs aside to dry, you will know your Memories Resist is dry when it turns from a milky blue color to almost clear, with will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

4) After the Memories Resist is dry, it turns from a milky blue color to clear, spray with Memories Mists (any color you want), if you want to add more then one color let the Memories Mists dry between each color.

5) Peel off the Memories Resist to revile your design.

6) Finish off your egg with Memories Mist Iridescent Spray.
