Hello friends!! Popping in with a couple of cards for the December PTI blog hop
. This month Nichole provided us with some beautiful inspiration photos featuring silver and gold. I have been into silver and gold lately thanks to two different Teresa Collins paper crafting lines: Studio Gold and Tinsel and Company. The papers from both lines are just gorgeous. For my cards today I used papers from Tinsel and Company. Both cards, especially the second one, are a bit outside my comfort zone, but I really like how both turned out. ETA: Adding this one to Stampin Celebration.
(Thanks, Kimberely for suggesting it.)
When I saw the PTI blog hop information I decided that it was finally time to get Delicate Silver Shimmer ink so I made a quick trip to Impress Rubber Stamps and picked up one (along with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins!). (Here is just one of the beautiful photos that Nichole provided.) When I got home I went right to work creating the first card. I used the PTI set Pretty Peonies, as well as the matching "happy" word die. I die cut the word and stamped it using the Silver Shimmer ink. A second happy was cut from gold glitter paper and then offset behind the first one. A tangle of Kreinik metallic blending filament was adhered to some patterned paper and then the word adhered over top. I dipped some wood veneer stars in the Silver Shimmer and Golden Glitz inks and then adhered them around the word. Finished by stamping the sentiment "anniversary" in black ink.
The second card came about as I was digging around through my stuff looking for my silver baker's twine (which I found, but did not use!). A month or so ago I purchased several package of Teresa Collins wood veneers and one of the packs contained this big word "wonderful". I thought it would look fabulous inked up with Golden Glitz ink and paired with the feathers from PTI's Feather Finery. After dipping the word in Golden Glitz I applied some clear embossing powder and heat set it to keep the ink from smearing. I die cut a feather from vellum and then stamped it with Silver Shimmer and Golden Glitz ink. That piece was also clear embossed. A second feather was die cut from patterned paper and then stamped, as well. Before layering everything up I partially embossed my cardstock and splattered it with the Silver Shimmer and Golden Glitz ink. A tangle of the blending filament, some sequins and the sentiment "friend" finished things off.
I adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday because I really do love how these cards turned out... especially the second one. And to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge... anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by...
