Live Laugh Love: Caught In Crystal Technique

Live, Laugh, Love

Live, Laugh, Love

I adore the Caught in Crystal technique using Crystal Effects (101055). Trust me, the picture doesn't do it justice! The greeting is from the set Live, Laugh, Love (1171140) which will be retiring soon.


  • Stamp sets: Live, Laugh, Love (117114)

  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise

  • Classic Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Pretty in Pink

  • Accessories: Window Sheets Medium (114323)

  • Other: Tissue Paper

I took half of a window sheet, folded it in half, and applied some Crystal Effects to this. I used a brush to spread it around, and then added a little more Crystal Effects which I didn't smooth out.

Next apply a few drops of two or three Classic Reinkers into the Crystal Effects. You can mix up the colors a little using a toothpick or something else. I actually took a straw and "blew" the reinkers around the Crystal Effects.

Cut a piece of tissue paper a little larger than you want your final piece to be and lay it onto the colored Crystal Effects. Fold the window sheet in half and press across the window sheet to spread the Crystal Effects onto the tissue paper. It's okay if there are some white spaces left. Open up the window sheet, remove the tissue paper,

Cut a piece of Window Sheet to the size you want and lay the tissue paper across it and press it down. Set aside to dry a few hours and then trim the excess tissue paper off.

Now you can use this to decorate your next card!
