MIM #157 & March Blog Hop



MIM at Papertrey features creating our own cover plates from dies.
Betsy Veldman (who wears a crown of clever creative genius),
showed us how, and carefully gave great examples here:



It doesn't often happen, but I instantly knew which dies I wanted to use.
Be Happy stamps and dies were sitting on my  craft table, 
and couldn't wait to use the scallop and stripe strips.
Sentiment from Bold Bouquet.
Hibiscus Burst and Limeaid Ice Inks
PTI felt and card stocks
Black sequins


Lots of foam tape to prop up the elements and 
glossed the frame (I bet you know why!) for added dimension.

Betsy, I always smile when you're on board.
It's for sure you're generous genius is is going to rub off on us!

Edited to play along with PTI's Mar. Blog Hop: GLOSS!
