Embossed Stickles Card

I went to the beach yesterday and had gorgeous weather so the Stickles I applied before leaving had time to dry without me messing it up. Or putting the panel somewhere safe to dry where I forget it. I hate when I do something which requires drying and then mess it up before it is dried.

Technique Junkie has for the technique of the week the embossed stickles technique. I thought this would be the perfect time to use the mini folder which is part of the Best Friends set by Sizzix. The set is alas a retired one. Here is my card.
I inked the butterfly folder before embossing. The background it is on is my own design I made in Studio the software for the Silhouette cutting machines. The top and bottom border is a stamp by Stampendous. I meant to have them stamped closer to the edge but decided to go ahead and use this panel instead of restamping for the fourth time since I was having a difficult time getting a crisp stamped image.

Since I already broke my moratorium on not buying crafting goodies yesterday I will be buying more stickles. Sad to say but this is the only two colors I own.

 I found a birthday set of clear stamps at a thrift store for under $3 and since I don't really have birthday sets I had to purchase it. My big find though was a rubber stamp with a fairy which looks like it has never seen ink. Of course I also had to stop at my favorite Scrapbook store and buy some more stencils and a set of stamps with a vintage feel to them which were on sale. I bought two stencils and the stamp set for what the stamp set was priced for originally so I don't think I did too bad and I know that these things won't sit gathering dust. I'm more discerning these days about what I buy.

Off to do more packing and sorting. One thing about doing this is I realize seeing all the abundance around me how blessed I have been. Thank you for stopping by and leaving comments. Do come back. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. Hi Myoriah, I really like the embossed Stickles. It's like having glitter with a puff.Keep up the techniques junkie tests, we all are learning some cool stuff. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Myoriah
    Cool technique and as doodlingdebbie said, we are learning some cool stuff from you. Pretty darn cute card.
    Do you have your place yet? Will it be a long move?

  3. Awesome card. The stickled butterfly is pretty. For only having two colours of stickles, you managed to create something so perfect. I can't believe you only have two colours--LOL. The stamps are a nice touch too.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. :)
