The rain has gone
I can see all the obstacles in my way.
Have no clue who sings that!
You have all set me straight, I just don't know my pop music like I should.
I can recognize a song and maybe know some of the lyrics, but chances are I am saying that it was by Tiffany when it was really Stacy Q.
Plus, I thought Salt-n-Peppa only sang Push it.
And I still don't know what Color Me Badd sings then??
And I am terrible at making decisions.
But the decision has been made.
I am no longer a demo.
Just don't love the SU products like I once did and am so ticked about some of their policies that are looser for some demos and not others and so many problems with their current products would not make me as a consumer buy from them, so I think it makes me incapable of effectively selling their stuff.
Plus, there are so many other things I would buy other than SU, so I will just do that.
And I still need stuff for the new place, so the money will likely go in that direction.
Thanks for all the words of encouragement, made it all much easier.
Now on to the good stuff...
Here is another challenge over at the Dirty Dares.
When I was making this card, I realized that I was out of acetate and transperencies.
Then, I had a genius moment!
You know, a moment when you come up with something so good, you think to yourself...GENIUS!
Well, this was that moment.
Had to use acetate or transperency to complete the challenge and I had the idea for this card, when I realized...I could use a clear envelope, if I cut it!
I thought for a moment that maybe the Staz On might not work as well on the envelope, but it did!
I started squealing with delight in my brilliant scheme.
Made the kid run in to see what all the ruckus was about.
He wasn't impressed, but I was plenty impressed for the both of us.
I even made this card as well....
The pink petals are actually under the sheet!
If you want to make this type of affect, I definitely advise you use the Hermafix repositionable adhesive when you are originally placing the petals down, so you can place and then check the position and replace as necessary.
Also, when using brads with these pretend acetate sheets, be careful, they tear very easily. On the first card, I put the brad through only the flower, not the clear sheet and glued the clear piece underneath the flower to keep it from slipping on the card.
So, there you have it, when in a crunch and you don't have an acetate sheet, use one of the clear envelopes or packaging (that works too!) and your Staz On, works like a charm!
Totally thought of this myself, hate saying that because someone is gonna say they thought of it, but I swear, thought of this all by my lonesome, never saw this anywhere but my own crazy whacked head! (seems a shame I have to say that, but just feel like I do nowadays)
