Hi everyone! It's Michelle, and welcome to Week 2 of my Limelight Designer month of May. This week, I used the amazing set, I Love Roses. Some of you may know that I LOVE roses. Really love roses! They have been my favorite flower all my life and are even my birth flower (I was born in June). I actually named my blog using Roses in the title!! So, can you believe up until I recently ordered this set, I did not own one rose stamp? Not one, not even a tiny one! Well, this set is amazing and seriously the only one I need -LOL!
You may remember from my post last week that I am showing More is More and Less is More cards in my Limelight posts.
This is the More is More card. It has lots of layers, silver cardstock, a bead pin with pearls and silver spacers, organdy ribbon, lots of glitter and dimension! I stamped the rose image twice on shimmer white cardstock and I colored them with copic markers. I then cut out a part of the second rose and leaf and popped them up.
The bead pin and pearls were purchased at Joann's and is my version of SU! Pretties Kit!! I love using the 1/8" silver wired ribbon as I can wind it around a pencil and it keeps it's lovely twirly shape!
The sentiment uses the Double ended tags die from Spellbinders. I actually made 2 tags so I could decide which shade of pink cardstock to use. The one I didn't use here I used on the LIM card. It's a great way to utilize all the "practice" pieces you end up with during the process!
Here is a detail shot (click to enlarge image).
Here is the Less is More card. I took everything down several knotches. This time, I didn't keep the same layout as the MIM card, but did keep the same elements (ie. image, black framing, silver accents and sentiment). I used the curvy Mega rectangle nestability for the shape of the card. I stamped the image on a scrap of pink paper from the first card, and lightly colored it with copics. I wrapped silver cord around the front several times and mounted the image over it with dimensionals. As I mentioned above, the sentiment panel is leftover from my "decision process" from the first card.
Before I go, I want to thank you all for the lovely comments left for me on last week's post. Several of you even made it over to my personal blog and left comments there too! I read and appreciated every single one!!
EDITED to add: The bead pin can be found in the bead/jewelry section of craft stores, or I sometimes use corsage pins which can be found in the wedding section. I like corsage pins because they have a sharp point and the stopper fits on it slightly better. The stopper I use are silver earring backs which are found in the bead/jewelry section.
Thanks for stopping by, and see you next Sunday for another MIM/LIM set.
