CC101 Face Book Challenge: Rockin' the Candy

The Creative Chemistry 101 Face Book Group  challenge for September is Rock Candy Distress Stickles.  This technique was demonstrated by Tim Holtz on the last day of the Online Card Class series.  I'll admit: I just don't use my stickles enough.  Now, with the colors I have no complaints; but this is my 3rd bottle of the rock candy (clear) stickles, as I always seem to run out of the stickle part!! I'm even storing them upside down to keep the glitter towards the tip! Anyone else having this problem? 

Anywho, I'm starting my Christmas card designs, and love this mitten stamp from Impression Obsession, so as I already was playing around with it and the Distress Markers, I thought I'd merge it with the challenge.  The snowflake background is also from IO, using the rolling Mega Mount! And I LOVE IT!  So easy to get a perfectly even background impression! So, in addition to the rock candy stickles on the background, I also used Picket Fence Stickles on the cuff of the mittens.  And as soon as I find a nice blue thin velvet (I think) ribbon, that will be going on my finished design...
Hmm, and I better order more blue paper for the card as well...and more of that Rock Candy, as this bottle is almost out...oh love shopping lists!! Have a great week everyone!


  1. Loving your fab card and it glitters beautifully, x

  2. Fabulous card there Kim and it is nice to see you have (at last) started making your C cards! Nice to see you did mine first! LOL!
    It truly does rock!
    As for DS I always give them a darned good shake before I use them and rock candy I give a good stir with coffee stirers (clean of course)! Don't know if it works but I don't seem to get problems!
    Hugs and have a great weekend!

  3. Looks great! Good reminder to pull my stickles out, too. Thanks!
