Welcome to the last Try It Out Tuesday for the year! We will resume the fun challenges on January 5th!!
Our challenge today is New Year's Bling! Make your cards sparkle, shine and brilliant in any way (stickles, glitter, embossing, rhinestones, pearls, Smooch, Shimmerz, etc). Well, if you've been to my blog at all, you know that I LOVE this challenge!! LOL!!
Be sure to visit Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see how you can play along with this challenge and also to see the other design team members creations!
I needed a card for Belle's dance teacher so I thought Belle would be a fun stamp to use today.
- card size: 4 1/2 x 4 1/2
- stamps: Belle,
- paper: some from my stash
- ink: Memento Tuxedo Black,
- others: copics, apricot shimmerz, vanilla shimmer and gold glow smooch spritz, CM cutting system, stardust pens, copic glitter pens, stickles,Christmas tree tear drops, glue dots,
Martha Stewart punch,
I stamped Belle onto my cardstock twice with memento ink and colored both images with copics. I used shimmerz on her tights/leggings. I masked off the floor on one of the images and sprayed the cardstock with Smooch Spritz--love this stuff!! I will be talking about the Smooch Spritz on Thursday but one thing I forgot to do on this project is to spray the smooch spritz on some scrap cardstock first...that helps get most of the bigger splotches out and gives you more control. Then I cut out Belle on the other image to layer onto the bottom spritzed piece. I used my CM cutting system to cut the ovals out.
I dug in my stash of paper to find something to go with Belle and then figured out the layout--which I kept very simple. I added some embellishments, some touches of copic glitter pens, stardust pens and stickles to finish the card.
