Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I did not get my “alternative” project finished yet, however I do have a super cute card that we made at Cindy and Sarah’s stamping party (one of the Make -n- Takes. It’s super simple and perfect for your friend. I’m using the Beauty Abounds stamp set and nothing says spring like “butterflies”
I stamped the background with the “Bokeh” dots … it just creates another layer of dimension. The focal point of the card is the beautiful butterfly designer paper that you can get for FREE during Sala-a-bration with a qualifying purchase. So … how did I get that sparkle on there? Good Question!!
There are two ways to do this technique which I call the Glimmer Designer Paper Technique and it’s one of my favorites because it creates such a “WOW” whenever I show it.
- Grab your Silicone pad … you’ll want it for both ways. Place your designer paper onto the silicone pad and with your Snail adhesive – cover the entire piece of designer paper. Next, sprinkle with the Dazzling Diamonds glitter, tap off excess and gently rub it into the adhesive using your finger tip. Tap off excess again.
- The second way to do it is just switching adhesives, the rest is the same. If you are covering a larger piece of designer paper, you will want to use the Multipurpose adhesive sheets. This is also super simple. Peel off the first layer, lay your designer paper onto the adhesive sheet … then peel off the top layer and add glitter as in step one.
Besides the beautiful butterflies in this stamp set, the verbiage is perfect for sharing a card with your friend. I added a little ribbon to the card and some rhinestones to jazz it up a bit.
And to create another layer of dimension … I added a piece of vellum behind the focal point of the card. Hope you enjoyed this technique and you give it a try … it’s simple, it’s fun and it looks amazing!!
Thank you for taking time out of your day and share it with me by stopping by my blog.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’d like to share a card that I created using the Floral Romance Product Suite. It’s a stunning product suite and not just for “romance” but for many occasions … In the next few days I will be sharing more samples from this suite.
Lets start out simple yet elegant, and it’s easy to accomplish when you are using the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series paper … The top two pictured are “Vellum” paper and you get 3 sheets of each.
This is one pack of designer paper that will have no waste whats so ever … every one is prettier than the next. The pretty floral pattern is the base of our card today. I started with the Fresh Fig cardstock and added a piece of Whisper White to really make the floral pattern shine …
The pattern on this vellum is stunning … it was designed with amazing layers of color to create depth. It looked nice on the Fresh Fig but the white behind it really made it stand out.
Then I added the Pink and White Variegated ribbon which has a light texture and is so soft and pretty. Our greeting comes from the Wonderful Romance stamp set (and the dies were so “hot” they just sold out”… but you could use any of our dies to highlight the greetings in this set.
I could not resist using the cute Frosted Flower Embellishments (they are listed as Low Inventory) and even popped a few of our “old” pearls inside … I couldn’t resist. Put a few pearls on the flowers on the vellum too, it added some fun texture to the card.
You could most definitely make a ton of these pretty cards … 18 to be exact as you get 3 sheets of this pretty vellum design. Simple and Elegant.
So happy that you joined me today, I hope you have a beautiful day!
