Thanks so Much…

I would like to say a very big Thank You for all your lovely comments for the card I made yesterday  It has been overwhelming & did not expect anyone to take any notice of it, let alone comment, but I LOVED them – haha

Today’s card is for the Colour Challenge over at UDI  The colours shout “Spring!”  I know we are in the middle of summer, but hey the colours are beautiful, so of course I had to give it a go.  I will say, it did take me some time to figure out how I was going to create my card, only knowing that I wanted to use Shimmer Paint.

Cut base card using Concord Crush Cardstock
2nd Layer – Very Vanilla Cardstock & run through Bigshot using Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
3rd layer – Always Artichoke – 4″ x 3″ or 10cm x 7.5cm
4th Layer – Perfect Plum – 3 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ or 9.5cm x 7cm
5th Layer – Very Vanilla – 3 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ or 9cm x 6.5cm
Using Shimmer Paint – Frost White, randomly rub over Very Vanilla Cardstock & let dry
With Always Artichoke, Concord Crush & Perfect Plum Inks, stamp images directly over the Shimmer Paint.  With a couple of images & to give a little more definition, stamp off onto scrap paper & then onto the cardstock
Stamp sentiment onto Very Vanilla using Concord Crush Ink
Run Cardstock through Bigshot using Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
Adhere layers 2, 3,4 & 5 together
Adhere Taffeta Ribbon down LHS of Very Vanilla Cardstock
Make a small bow tie & attach a Rhinestone Brad to the centre prior to attaching to middle of ribbon
Attach layer to base card

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Pocket Silhouettes
Inks – Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum, Concord Crush
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke, Concord Crush
Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots
Ribbon – 3/8″ Taffeta – Very Vanilla
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Multipurpose Liquid Glue,
Shimmer Paint – Frost White, Rhinestone Brad – Lilac
Tip – When using Embossing Folders, I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue – you will find that it will adhere a lot more to your cardstock
Until next time, Enjoy!
