I have a fun card to share with you today over at the Picket Fence Studios blog. Many of you know that I tend to
hoard collect sentiments and this sentiment set called Crafty Friends is simply amazing. I though it would be great if I simply focused on it without any images but wanted the card to feel special enough to sent to a crafty friend.
Back in March when I was at Stamping Away, I created this background after I saw some inspiration by the awesome stampers who joined me. My friend Jill told me about a great way to use the Tonic Nuvo Glimmer Pastes. Using a background cover plate from My Favorite Things, I created a disposable stencil. All you have to do is lay it down on card stock just like any stencil and apply the paste. I got two cards out of it before it was a big mess and then could just toss it. If you do want to use the pastes with your real stencils, take care to wash them off immediately since the paste dries quickly. I used two colors here…so pretty!
My sentiment was stamped onto vellum with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then heat embossed with Wow Black Glint Embossing Glitter. It has a bit of a shimmer and shine that regular embossing powder doesn’t have. Perfect against this background. I created this with this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch challenge as inspiration. Perfect for showing off great sentiments!
I will be sharing posts about every three weeks over on the Picket Fence Studios blog (as will all my fellow design team members) so we would love to have you visit over there for inspiration. Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
