Scrapbook Steals Blog Hop!

Good morning all!  I'm so pleased to be a part of the Scrapbook Steals blog hop this weekend.  You should have arrived here via the fabulous Misty Buck.  I love Scrapbook Steals, and have been a long time customer, and fan of their awesome customer service and super fast shipping times.  Today's steal is American Crafts DIY Thickers, and they were so much fun to work with!

First, I created this card using the mistable Thickers.  I knew they would react well with mists, but wondered what would happen if I used alcohol markers on them instead.  It worked like a charm.  I used three Copics in varying shades of salmon to create an ombre effect for the sentiment on this card.  (other stamped images by Lawn Fawn.)  They really took the color well and were easy to blend on!

Next, I used the DIY Adhesive Thickers, and made an ombre glitter sentiment by using three different shades of silver glitter.  SO. FUN.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Before you leave, be sure to leave a comment here on this post--one random participant will be chosen to receive a $20 gift code to Scrapbook Steals!

Next stop on the hop is the awesome Brenda Smith!
