The Cat’s Pajamas
To continue practicing the awesome tips brought in the Online Card Class, Sparkle and Shine, today is shimmer day! I mixed Jennifer and Debby’s tips into one – using an adhesive as the backer to a Tim Holtz stencil to hold Perfect Pearls. I love the effect and can see mass producing cards this way! I finished it off with some ribbon and a saying.
Stencil: Tim Holtz
Perfect Pearls (shimmer): Ranger

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!

I had to try the day 1 lesson again from Online Card Classes, Sparkle and Shine. The die cut at the top of the card was perfect for this technique! I added double-sided adhesive to the background of the die cut so that it would be glittery. Love how it turned out!

This week’s challenge at The Cat’s Pajamas was a photo one, showing lots of flowers and colors of white, coral and mint green. My inspiration came in the form of an ATC using the Patterned Petals set to stamp then adding some small Prima flowers and white acrylic paint from Ranger. It was fun and I can use what I learned this time to make my next acrylic project even better!
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.
