Top Tip Tuesday - 22 February 2011

The topic for this weeks' challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is "bling it on" so this card I have made I thought would be suitable as I've used some mirri card and some gems to add some sparkle.  The image and backing papers are from My Craft Studio Fab Glam Fifties CD.  In the end I nearly had to abort making the card as I now have the use of my son's computer and cannot use My Craft Studio Professional properly on that (with my computer it wouldn't work at all) and now my My Craft Studio Standard is also playing up and everything fits on the page in print preview and then if I send it to print it either prints out tiny or is too big and only certain bits print on the screen.  My son who is in IT and myself have come to the conclusion that it somehow it is incompatible with my printer but others I know use HP printers - albeit not the same model as mine - so I am tearing my hair out.  Virtually most of my cards I would use My Craft Studio for and even when printing out digital images and I feel really lost and upset it's not working properly and I have no idea what to do.

I thought this image that Nancy watt has drawn was so beautiful.  The card is finished off with some lace, buttons, homemade flowers with corded brads, sentiment off the computer, ribbon and some gems.

This card also fits the following challenges:

For Fun - Happy birthday
Fab n Funky - Make your own embellishments
Dutch Dare - Sparkle/glitter/bling
Paper Romance - Buttons, ribbon and lace
If the Shoe fits Scrap it - Happy birthday
Shabby Tea Room - Buttons and bows

I just love that ghosting imaging you did. The repetition of the image at different sizes and transparencies is just stunning. TFS!

Thanks for joining us this week at For Fun Challenges.

Perhaps if you ring them they could help you with your printing problem
Thank you so much for sharing with us at ooh la la this week

I too love the ghosting image on this card.

I have problems with the My Craft Studio program too - although they did send me an upgrade disk (although I'm not sure it's solved my problem) - perhaps you should get in touch with them and ask if they know why you are having this problem.

My problem is that when I change the colour of something it changes on screen but then prints in the original colour!!!!! I'm using a Canon Printer which is only a couple of years old!!!!
