Faux Brad Video Tutorial

Hello All!
Several people have asked how I made my faux brads on the card I posted the other day. Thanks for the comments, emails and questions!
Here is a very quick tutorial. You will be amazed at just how easy it is!

BTW...the "Fuzzy Ducky" stamp is another one of my illustrations and is available now @ Clear Dollar Stamps for just $2.49!!!!

I would love to hear a comment from you.
Thanks and Hugs,
True :D

Hi True,

Hope you are doing well. Your Fuzzy Ducky stamp is absolutely adorable! I usually don't go for "cute" but she is delightful!

And I just watched your faux brad tutorial and must say you are a genius! Just a super simple way to enhance a flower or card and I LOVE the way you can use your DP and make everything coordinated. You can bet I will be using this technique in the future.

Your tut was great and thanks so much for sharing!
