Do Small Things

About 3 times a year Fun Stampers Journey does what they call FSJ Live.  It's a 4 hour live YouTube video party to celebrate the upcoming new mini catalog.  We had our first for this year last Saturday. Those who ordered the "Bundle", a box of stamps, 4 card kits, dies (some cost extra), and a booklet of directions, got an email link to the Live plus a pre-recorded video of how to make the cards.  We also got the chance to purchase a few more bundles (some stamps and goodies) of products from the upcoming Mini. I did make 1 card this week but will be doing the other 3 tomorrow with some fellow coaches (2 are my downline) as we again watch the 2 videos. We will have a potluck lunch and lots of laughs.  Here's the 1 card I made...

This new set, Small Things, is beautiful! It's a set of 8 stamps, 3 butterflies and 5 sentiments.  I also purchased the coordinating die set.  Can you figure out how I made the background?  I haven't done this in 11 years!  In fact, just a few months before moving here to southern AZ I taught a class of about 8 gals in eastern WY how to do this.  It's very messy but look at those results!!  Ok, I used cheap shaving cream and some of our Liquid Colors!

Can you see the sparkle on the butterfly?  I added some Glaze and Sparkle Cuts (not glitter but bigger chunks) to the larger black spots.
