a CASE of Laura Bassen

Hidey ho.....

Have you seen the video by Laura Bassen on the Simon Says Stamp blog? Besides her humor and hearing from kids once in a while, she makes fantastic cards and videos worth watching.
So, I just couldn't stand it, I had to give it a try.

While I am not a personal friend of Jennifer McGuire (but I do love her videos !) and don't expect she will be sending any happy mail my way that involves the Glad Press n Seal (like she sent to Laura), I just went ahead and purchased it myself.  :)

It is the key to making this card!!!

I inked up a piece of white cardstock with a rainbow of inks, then stamped and heat embossed with iridescent powder.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the hexies, applied the Press n Seal and 
very important...I removed the die cut by bending the cutting mat away very slowly.
Foam adhesive was added to back of each hexie, adhere to white cardstock and peal off the unwanted parts.
Yep...the Press n Seal is a super product for any crafting room!
