Caught in a Crystal

Caught in a Crystal, Lovely as a Tree, Stampin' Up!Here’s an “oldie but goodie” technique called “Caught in a Crystal.”  I changed it a little to use all Stampin’ Up! products.  We’ll be doing this technique for our class in December.  Please note:  December Technique class will be Friday, Dec 6 at 11 a.m.

This technique is really easy – but a little messy.  I blotted the back of the tree layer with Whisper White card stock to create the patterned paper I used for a layer.  I’ll post instructions for the class after Dec. 6, but if you want to get ready, you’ll need:

Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 2-3 colors of ink refill (I used Perfect Plum, Pool Party and Crushed Curry), and tissue paper.  You also need a sheet of acetate.  If you’re using scissors or Bigz dies with the Big Shot to cut the main image, Stampin’ Up!’s Window Sheets are great.  If you’re using framelits, you’ll need thinner transparencies.

For the stamps I used Lovely as a Tree (everyone’s “old favorite!”) and Banner Greetings (hostess set).

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a beautiful day!
