It's Not All Black and White

You're All That...

...and a bag of chips! Ha! That cracked me up the first time I saw this sentiment/stamp combo in the new Kooky Costumes set. So I just had to use them on a card. Wouldn't this make a cute, punny thank you card?

The image is stamped with Palette's noir ink (heat set) and colored with Copic markers. I cut and layered three squares for the other layers, rounding all the corners. You should have seen all the little cut-off corners flying around my stamp desk. Those suckers really pop out of that punch.

The blue glitter brads I made myself! Have you ever colored your brads with embossing powder? This uses the same general rule. Hold brad with tweezers. Heat with heat tool. Dip in Heat 'n Stick powder. My brad was so hot, it melted the powder, but if needed you can give it a quick shot with the heat tool to melt. You do not want to overheat it though. Quickly dip in glitter. Re-heat to set. Tah Dah! I'm really tickled about my glitter brads. Can you tell?

Last, I pierced a row along the blue strip.
