Crystal Effects

Y'know how you have products that you go through "phases" with? That has been me and Crystal Effects this past couple of weeks ... I used to use it a lot, then it was neglected for many a moon. Seems I have rediscovered it lately, and I'm loving it!!

I had this card sitting on my table, fully done, for two days. It somehow didn't seem complete to me, and I kept feeling prompted to add the shininess of Crystal Effects ... finally just caved in and did it on the little boat!! YAY!! Just what it needed!!

What's YOUR favorite "go-to" product lately? Leave me a comment and let me know ... I'd love to see what it is you use that just seems to "do it" for ya!!


Stamps: Moving Forward
Paper: Real Red, Pacific Point, Whisper White, Polka Dot Parade DSP

This card is just so adorable! I love that stamp set! The crystal effects looks fabulous on your little sailboat! My go to product lately is embossing powder. I used to use it all the time and then it was neglected until recently. I just love watching the magic of the powder melting and turning shiny!

Smooch Spritz - the effect is so subtle and elegant. I love the crystal effects lately too. I am so glad we got the Ronald McDonald set. It is way cute

What a bright and fun card, Wendy! Love how the Crystal Effects really adds "pop" to that sailboat image. That's a product I've been meaning to use more often too. Lately my "go-to" product is Stickles.
