Card Connection : Let Your Heart Sing

I love this new 12×12 paper from BasicGrey called “Fiction” The colors are spot on and cheerful but, not to bright. I enjoy working with the 12×12 papers on my cards because the prints are larger and more dramatic then the 6×6 papers with the smaller print. The papers with numbers were perfect for a New Years wish for a friend with lots of resolutions for 2013. Today I have a mimi tutorial on using these fuzzy rub ons.

Turn the rub on over and trace the image that you will be transferring to your card with a permanent marker.

Once you place the “rub on” onto the paper you can see exactly where you want to place it because of your outline on the back of the rub-on. (fuzzy side goes down) The great part is when you use the stick provided in the package the marker rubs off so it’s easy to follow what part is has been transferred or rubbed on to your paper.

Pull the rub-on slowly off just in case part of it hasn’t been released by rubbing as you see here. All you need to do is lay it down and rub that part again.

Add some stickles on top of the rub on using a brush for easy and even application. Clean brush immediately.

The sparkle is perfect for my New Year’s themed card

The packaging from the rub on was so pretty i decided to use it on my card.

For more dimension i added glossy accents on top of the stickled foliage after it was dry

Add some pearls, stamp and cut the butterflies from some scrap paper.

Happy New Year!
