CNT 52 wk Pick N' Mix ~ Crinkly Tape & Glitter Topper

Hello Dahlings!
Are you pondering what da heck is crinkly tape?
Debbie defined it for us as:
regular ol' cello tape that has been cut with decorative craft scissors.
Alas, I'm a bit of a rebel & opted to do this using décor vinyl.
This is the same type of vinyl that is used
for nail art stencils & stickers.
You can find it in craft stores in da die cut machine section
near where da Cricket by Provocraft e-cutter is displayed
as it's sold by that company for use with their die cutter.
It comes in rolls in a small variety of colors.
More colors are available online & from other brands.
So I did this...
 I may or may not have made my glitter topper sections too wide.
I do like the effect of TDWP Santa Got Run Over By A Reindeer
from da Ugly Christmas Glitters (SGROBAR is da 3rd from da left)
None of these toppers are ugly
& da price for da set of 4 full size bottles is an awesome $25US!
 I started with 2 blingtastic coats of
from da Holiday Preview
This polish is sold out,
but there are still several fun holiday lacquers
for you to pick up on sale!
 Then took a pair of retire SU deco scissors in a torn (deckle) pattern
& used them to cut strips of white décor vinyl.
After a quick coat of SH Dries Quick did it's thang,
I applied piece of da vinyl down da sides of my nails,
except for my ring finger that got a strip of vinyl
that I had cut down both sides.
 A close up of mah ring finger nail.
You can see da demarcation line between da polishes
is ragged from da vinyl stencils I made.
So I guess this lil experiment worked!
>^. .^<
Meowmy? Why is Ciri on da table?
We not allowed on da table!
Thank you for tattling, Luna.
Thanks for stopping by
& please go visit da other Tarts!

  1. very interesting texture and colour. God Bless U.

  2. Another good source is painter's tape. Cuts easily and comes off fairly easily, as well. Oh, and, the day that my cats stay off the table is the day I get elected Pope...

    1. I had the vinyl on hand (SU used to sell it & the scissors, but not at the same time.) so I used it. I was more amused at Luna tattling on Ciri. Those 2 are doing better, but still aren't friends.
