Today, I get to stamp! I’ve been doing just enough to get by over the past week or so… LOL, it was a very busy week! I haven’t played much with my new stamps, ink and card stock… but you can bet they’re getting a work out today!This card was made using the new Everything Eleanor stamp set along with the Labels Collection Framelits. If you’re unfamiliar with framelits, they’re very similar to Nestabilities or Spellbinders dies, often with nested layers.After die cutting Very Vanilla card stock twice with two of the Labels Collection Framelits, the frame was random stamped and attached to the card front with stampin’ dimensional pop dots.I used the narrow outer edges from the dimensional dots to keep them hidden beneath the narrow framelit layer, and a marker was used to highlight both outer and inner edges.Regal Rose ink was used to stamp the background image and flower, and varying sizes of basic pearls jewels were used to adorn the pretty background.As a finishing touch, another basic pearl jewel was added to the floral center before dabbing with a two way glue pen and sprinkling with dazzling diamonds.
Today’s Tips for Paper Crafters:
- Always attach pearls or rhinestones to card stock or stamped image before glittering, it’s hard to get things to stick to glitter!!
- Add glitter into a lock & Seal type sandwich container slightly larger than a card. It will be easier to scoop and glitter cards and images. My glitter container has fold down/locking sides which really helps protect against glitter spills and hazards!
- Next time you attend a Taste Of Home, Pampered Chef, etc. home cooking demonstration ask the demonstrator for a couple of those tiny plastic sampling spoons… they’re perfect for scooping glitter! I keep one right in the lock ‘n seal container!
There are just 5 more days to order from the 2011-12 Idea Book and Catalog…. once those favorite stamp sets retire, they will be gone forever! You can use my convenient online stampin’ up! store or contact me to place your order!
Now… off to clean my stamping room so I can stamp! Have a wonderful weekend!
