Store news and Silks

Hello dear friends !!! Well it is Monday !! I so hope everyone’s week is starting out great !!!

I got a little play time in yesterday that I would like to show you but first I wanted to let you know that Susana’s Custom Art and Cards store is now open again today !!!

Susana is up and running again and boy does she has some awesome new products in store. Here are just a few to mention.

New Dylusions Products – Includes Stencils, Sprays and Stamps!!!

NEW Memory Box Dies – These are Fab!!!

New Couture Embossing Folders

New Spellbinders

And here is what I have used on my project today

New Luminarte Mica’s and Silks

I have to say I had such a blast with these silks !!! OMG !!! These are just so awesome !!! If you click on the link for the Silks above there are some tutorials by Marti on different things to do with them but I wanted to try it on some wood !!! Oh check it out ! I think this product is just amazing. I so love it, only 1 coat of paint here on this box and no streaks nothing ( I am not a good painter so this is awesome) I used Blue Flame on the box. Then I used Ginger Peach on the Crinoine  which I got from the Funkie Junkie.  These silks took the crinoine wonderfully !!! I also used the Ginger Peach on white paper and stamped the saying over it. These silks can be used on just about anything (paper, wood, fabric, clay and so much more)


Here is a different view of the box


And here is a couple more ways I used it. I put some Blue Flame on white paper and ran it through one of my embossing folders and then took a sanding block and sanded the embossing some. Then I also used it on the seam binding I have laying on the card front here. I am telling you this stuff is wonderful !!! I know I am going to get me some more colors to play with. This product is just wonderful.


Sorry I ran out of time to make this into a card but so wanted you to see what you can do with these silks.

Hopefully I can finish something else I started with the silks this week and show it to you this weekend. But you all need to so go check out all the new products Susana has, she has been quiet busy !!!!!! And keep an eye out tomorrow on the Follow Your Heart Blog for the fun begins tomorrow and you don’t want to miss out !!!!!


  1. It looks as if you had fun experimenting with these. I love the boldness of the orange & blue in your box project & the lace trim softens it beuatifully.
    Take care
