Day 3 of the Online Card Class, Sparkle and Shine, was full of liquid applications for sparkle and shimmer. I worked with the Nuvo crystal drops and Wink of Stella shimmer pens that you can pick up just about anywhere. The dots of color and clear are the Nuvo drops. The shimmer on the ombre panel is from a bath of Wink of Stella clear. I love how the shimmer enhances the color while blending it a tiny bit. It looks great in the afternoon sun!

So for the 2nd day of the Online Card Class, Sparkle and Shine, the subject was foil. I used a foil that I had in my stash for quite some time over double-sided adhesive. It worked great! I found that dusting with powder helped the edges stop feeling sticky from where the foil couldn’t reach.

I was on a go with the April card kit from The Stamps of Life. Thanks to Chris for convincing me that I needed it 🙂
The 2 pink cards and last card used a Tim Holtz Stencil for the simple background. The birdcage card used the Stamp Club images from April which are super cute!
With the latest release at The Cat’s Pajamas Rubber Stamps, came more terrific flower stamps. Every time I see more flower stamps I think “nope, you don’t need more” but then there are coordinating dies, super cute samples by the DT and of course a great “buy now” sale. OK, so I DID buy more flower stamps! But aren’t they awesome???? This card came together super easy and quick, hope you like it.
This card is for the TCPTUES288 color challenge on the blog.
The Cats Pajamas is one of my favorite rubber stamp companies that also has dies! I used the Fancy Flip and Fancy Frame Dies to make this card along with the Sassy Birthday stamp set. It’s mostly an adult oriented card with some fun added in. This card was for the current color challenge TCPTUES284 on the TCP blog.
Sorry about that! Life happens and then we move on.
Tim Holtz has started a year long monthly tag inspiration and has retired his 12 days of December tag ideas. I think it’s a good thing and I’m looking forward to it. He’ll catch up in March for January, so February’s came out first. What a great tag full of inspiration!
Here are 3 different versions created by me, Cindy and Barb in one night. Can you believe it…just one night! We were pretty impressed with ourselves since we were very pleased with the way they came out.
We used a bunch of different things – Tim Holtz dies, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Distress Inks, Glimmer Mist, and other cool things. Can’t wait for March’s tags! Thanks Tim!
I’ve had a great first week with Shimelle and her class, Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages. She’s right!! It’s working! 🙂
Here’s one of the first assignments from last week. My recent favorites: Ippity Stamps (of course), P K Glitz embossing powder and ribbon, any kind!
