I wanted to show you a couple of things today.
I am getting to like the shimmer paints that were introduced in the new
Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue
(page 21) more and more as I use them.
It is however, really hard to photograph and capture the amazing sparkle that it gives off.. I've had a go anyway... see what you think!
This card has been made using
Medallion background stamp
Special Blessings stamp set
a border stamp from the new Vintage Vogue stamp set
Other items used
Not Quite Navy cardstock
Bordering Blue cardstock
Kraft Taffeta ribbon
Champagne Mist Shimmer paint
Makes for a lovely simple card, of course you can change the greeting on the front and the sentiment on the insert.
I love the Medallion Stamp. Some people are frightened to use it, as it is quite big, but ensure that it is inked up enough and you'll be well on your way!
I've just seen a new technique today using this stamp and embossing over a patterned 'inked' image, it looks amazing, so I'm going to that out whilst Kiera's asleep!
Until next time,
ooh I like this Emma, xxx
