Desserts

Happy Saturday everyone!! Been a nice past few days, I've had off. The babysitter wasn't able to watch the kids Thurs., Fri. and Monday yet, so I needed to take off. Of course I don't mind, being able to be home with the kiddos!! Sawyer has been so much fun and little miss Ava is beginning to get into everything!! I just love it! Working so many hours a week, it's been nice to have a little break.

My husband raced in Norway, MI last night with his racecar. So Sawyer, a bunch of family and friends and I went to watch him! We had so much fun! But sitting in the stands watching, brought back so many memories! I miss racing so much! I hope to get behind the wheel again someday!

Anyway, I am still on a dessert kick from our last CI Paints challenge! I got this really cute Studio G cake stamp on my last shopping trip to Archiver's with a friend. I made 2 cards with it. I'm hoping to make some masculine cards with this stamp within the next few weeks.

Shimmer galore! :)

I just love the shimmer on this one!!


On my last trip to Archiver's, as I mentioned, a few days again, I got the i-rock tool! I love it!! I got some "Glam Rocks" that came in a little tube with three different colors: pink, blue and green. Well they weren't exactly the colors I needed to match my projects, so I used some of my CI Paints to paint them to match!
I first used the i-rock to place the glam rocks on my project and then painted them. If you first paint them and then heat them in place it tends to take the paint off. Just a little tip I found out when experimenting!

These are the green glam rocks placed on my project, before:
After:
How cool is that? I'm telling you, if you haven't already tried these paints....YOU GOT TO! They're amazing!

If you are making some creations with these paints, we'd love to see them! Check out the CI Paints blog, on the left hand side there is inlinkz to post your wonderful creations!

Have a fabulous day!
