Hey there! I made another card using the December 2013 Simon Says Stamp card kit – this time I double-stamped the sentiment in black and red, and then I added the mittens, which were colored with some green markers. (The red ink is Versafine Satin Red – I love this! has anyone tried this?!)
After everything was put together, I felt like the card needed something else. I tried lots of things, but then I mixed some white spritz from A Muse Studio with some of the silver glitter paint from this post, and flicked it onto the card using a paint brush. It has dried to a glittery white finish. I like how it came out – it kinda looks like snowfall.
Have a great night – thanks for stopping by today!
We went to Pier 1 Imports last weekend and I was in awe of the utterly gorgeous Christmas tree displays…it will take us a long time to accumulate that many ornaments and embellishments for our tree, but in the meantime using my crafty supplies to make some shiny and fun ornaments is definitely something that I can do!
I used the Lil’ Inker Stitched Stars dies and some Antique Silver acrylic paint from Martha Stewart to make these ornaments, which were embellished with some Glitz design faceted buttons.
As an added bonus I made a video walking you through how to make these, including some of my random thoughts on glitter paper – please forgive the ending! The back of my head started to steal the show and I had to fix that (for your sake)! Thanks for watching!
I just played around a little bit with this month’s card kit from Simon Says and the Laurel and Heart cut file from Sophie Gallo, using a stampy technique that I learned from Laura Bassen in the Holiday Card Class. I opted for a coral/pink color instead of traditional Christmas red so that the black ink would have more contrast when stamped over the heart. Lastly, I added some pink bling at the end to give the look of holly berries on the wreath.
Happy Cyber Monday – any good deals out there? Are you shopping online today?
