Top Tip Tuesday a Jubilee Celebration

Good morning! Good Morning to you!
wasn't the Queen's Diamond Jubilee fantastic!
Here is my Bunting that I made and decorated my home windows with :0)
In honour of the
Diamond Jubilee

So then to my card and Tip
As some of you maybe saw in my post yesterday my lovely Husband fix one of my sets of craft draws
Thanks darling!
Down side was I could not make my card for this challenge at my desk
cause it was covered with stuff from the draws! Ekkk! is that all really mine! whoops!
Anyway! as everything was everywhere and I needed to work on my card
this is where my Tip comes in....
I grabbed my retractable craft knife, my rectangle nesties and my image that I had coloured before my desk was a bomb site!
I wanted to emboss the edge on my image but my Cuttlebug was out of reach sooo
I thought I would show you this other way you can do it....
using the top end of the knife as it is rounded and smooth I line up the image
and use the knife as and embossing tool
Great that is that bit done
Now I have my trusty glossy accents and stickles for that all important
I glossed his Nose. eyes and the water, and added stickles the outside edge of the image and the water! Please click on the picture for a closer look at the sparkles! :0)
Yup I have been at it again and made extra large candy of my own too!

  1. He's gorgeous Samantha. I also do that embossing thing with my nesties (only I do use an embossing tool), because I can't be bothered to use my bigshot to emboss. It is a great timesaver and I like the fact that I've created that texture by hand, somehow it is more satisfying than using embossing mats!! (yeah, I'm slightly mad!) LOL

  2. love the bunting and your card is fabulous. The image is lovely and the colours are wonderful
