I bought these papers several months ago and never even really looked at them. When I did, whoa. That stuff is so sparkly and so dang pretty!
For the leaves card, I made this for a class I had last week.
I die cut the leaves from the Soft Succulent shimmer vellum. You could die cut something big and just place it on plain Basic White cardstock and that card would be gorgeous!!
For the circle swirls, I used the stamp set “Sparkle of the Season” that’s in the mini catalog. I used the Stamparatus to stamp all three- two in Bumblebee and one in Misty Moonlight. During the class, I showed everyone how to do it, so I had an extra one and decided to make something totally different.
I got out the Ombre paper and what the what??? It is also so sparkly!!! Gorgeous!
I die cut the stars and put them inside the circle. I wanted to add Balmy Blue in some way, so I got out one of my Stampin’ Spritzers and my ink refill in Balmy Blue.
I added 10 drops of the ink, and then added 91% rubbing alcohol about 3/4 full in the Spritzer. I sprayed that on top to give it a little color. I’ll have a video soon of doing this with another paper that comes out so dang good!
The sentiment is from “Create with Friends”. I stamped it with Misty Moonlight and then fussy cut it.
I love to show how you can use a very similar thing on two cards and make them totally different! Holler if any questions!
The Merriest Moments Bundle in the new mini catalog is a Hybrid Embossing Folder! There is another Hybrid in the AC (annual catalog) that was new this year. It took me a while to learn how to use it, but now they are one of my favorites!
In this video, I show you how I made the 4 cards above. I will show all of them individually with the products used shown.
When I first saw the Give It a Whirl dies (page 163 of the Annual Catalog), I loved the clouds dies and for that reason, it made it to my list. When it got it, I used the clouds dies right away (they are awesome- three different sizes and all are stitched).
A few weeks ago, I decided to use the rest of the dies and became a little obsessed! I love making these kinds of cards.
My video is long, but I show you how I use them and give you some tricks and tips. I also show you several cards I’ve made using the dies. I’ll have the other cards posted here in the next few weeks with the product list for each one. The product list listed here is for the card I made during the video. Some of the products used are not purchasable right now, so I’ll have to add those products on 8/3.
I’m sitting here waiting for my preorder of stuff from the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog (which I will always say “Holiday Catalog”), which will be here next week. It’s a REALLY good catalog and also!!! A REALLY good new Sale-a-Bration!!!! I’m so excited about it!
I wanted to make a holiday card, but came up with another idea and made a birthday card. When I looked at it, I had an idea- change the colors and use all the same products and show how it can be used to make a Christmas card!
