Pin It


CTS #64: hi

Happy Sunday! I played along with CAS(E) this Sketch #64 and gave my first try at playing with modeling paste and a stencil, yay! It was pretty fun, I think I just have to be a little more patient, not one of my strong suits. I sprayed mine with Gold Heidi Swapp mist. What do you use to to color yours with? Do you color it when dry or while still wet? 

I was super excited to get my Stampin' Up! Angled Tag Topper punch. I see a lot of tags in my future! I used some paper and the "Hi" from a Studio Calico kit. The modeling paste I bought at Michael's with a 40% off coupon (they thought I was crazy when I asked about embossing pastes, so I'll have to look online), and I watched some videos from Jennifer McGuire about using pastes, but that was 2 weeks ago and a little fuzzy now. Ha!

On a Valentine note, I made these little treats shown below for my students at school. I always debate how much "effort" to put into their treats, because I know they're going to toss the cute, homemade packaging and eat the treats! lol! I found these created by Erin of Strawberry Mommycakes for, printed them out and voila, super easy! The kids loved them, too! Of course, I had to model how to use them so the kids would know! This selfie is after my dismissal duty station and it was a very windy day! *smile*

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
