Unity Friends with Flai

Happy Friday!  It is sunny and almost 65 degrees today.  Glorious day.
I made a shabby chic card today.  I have been playing with my Distress inks quite a bit lately.  I love this look when others make it but when I do, I think it looks messy.  Oh well, maybe it will grow on me.
I made the card by embossing top half and bottom half (leaving middle section without embossing) with beaded ribbon embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment and houses from Unity's Dutch Mustard Soup set.  I only colored the heart and added Glossy Accents.  Side note:  Does anyone have trouble with Glossy Accents clogging up and what do you do?  I have tried unclogging with a pin but will inevitably slice the tip.  I have also tried leaving in a stick pin, but then it rusts.  So now I have a rusty, sliced tip that Glossy Accents blobs out the end.  I think I can replace the tip, but I need a tip to keep it unclogged or a way to unclog it that won't destroy the tip.  Help!
I added a piece of red patterned paper and then words piece (Colorbok, Flea Market collection), I added stitch lines and made stick pin by stamping stick pin from Sew Cute set and cutting out heart and adhering to straight pin.  The ribbon is Tim Holtz seam binding that I inked with Walnut stain distress ink, as I did card base.  I added a button with some linen thread and finished.  Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think.  I do so appreciate your comments.  Have a great weekend.

  1. I have torn the side of my glossy accents nozzle. It comes out in blops now. Those are the things I hate to replace. Wonderful card, and enjoy your 65 degrees.

  7. Chere, your card is Gorgeous!! Love the shabby chic look. Yeah, I know what you mean about Glossy Accents - what I tend to do is make sure the tip is clear before I put it away. It helps otherwise I keep a pin handy nearby. Have a great weekend!!

  8. Very pretty card. I have the same problem with Glossy Accents. after I use it I try to clear out the tip but it still clogs.
