StazOn Studio Glaze for a Mix & Match Letter Action Card

StazOn Studio Glaze for a Mix & Match Letter Action Card

This card works like a sudoku puzzle. It comes along with several letters and embellishment. Because of using Tack’n’Peel, everything adheres non-permanent on the surface, so you can spend a lot of funny time combining it and trying to find out how many words, phrases and designs are possible to create. Hubby had a lot of fun with the possibilities.

Radiant Neon to Make a Tacky Tourist Signage Card

We don’t have a name for “Tacky Tourists” in Germany. But it’s a really good and funny description for these kind of travelers and I think, we should have a German word for them. For this card I created a new road sign. A couple of years ago, my BFF Dagmar and I visited the Gizeh Pyramides at Kairo, Agypt.
