Today Faith and I are showing off some fun creations!
Here's a peek at Faith's card done up in a vibrant red with those beautiful poppies from the Poppy Patch stamp set.
Faith stamped the poppies using VersaMark ink and then she embossed her image with black embossing powder.. The blooms were colored in with Shimmerz colors: Royal Red, Burgandy. The leaves were colored in with Shimmerz colors: Celery and Evergreen.Next, the images were cut out and adhered to the oval Nesties. She makes it sound so simple! What a gorgeous card she's created.
I decided to go for a little Christmas in July look and grabbed my All That Glitters set!
I stamped my ornament onto a piece of solid red from the Wassail collection from Basic Grey using Versamark ink and then embossed it in gold detail embossing powder. I cut it out and then, covered the entire bulb with Candlelight Shimmerz. I wanted to give it some understated elegance with a bit of glimmer! This color paint is a kind of neutral and does not change the color you have underneath one bit!
The mechanics of the card are rather simple! I used the Labels Three Nestabilities die for my main mat. After I embossed, I used a light grit sandpaper to take off some of the color on the edges of my shape. I used the Nestabilities circles for the main image and circular mat. Add some Kaiser Pearls, some ribbon and a decorative edge punch and voila! A Christmas card raring to go in July!
We'll be back tomorrow with some more glistening samples using Shimmerz so, stay tuned! Want to see what the Shimmerz DT cooked up with the Shimmerz/Flourishes combination? Click HERE to check it out!
