I wanted to create a simple card with some WOW factor. I was pleased with the focal image as it not only shines but it sparkles. I love how the flourish image transcends the seasons and can be used for a number of types of cards.
I started by stamping the image first in white, then in black. Then I placed versamark over the entire image and placed UTEE over top. As it started to dry I sprinkled shimmer glitter over the top. The effect in person is stunning and I am sure the photo does not do the image justice. Next I outlined the card base, stamped the sentiment, attached the ribbon and created a scalloped felt square to raise my focal image from the card.
- Create card base and create outline using scor-pal.
- Stamp image in white, then black. Allow to dry. Stamp versamark overtop.
- Pour UTEE over image, heat set and sprinkle glitter.
- Cut out stamped image. Cut out scalloped felt.

CARD # 2
I began with a card that could be winter themed but with these bright colours I was able to create warmth and excitement (check out that sentiment!!) and make it a card for all seasons. I stamped all the flourish images in white ink and used some watercolour pencils to colour it in. I love that "chalky look" and also love that there are so many elements I can colour in or leave blank. The colour possibilities are endless. I was able to tie in those colours with the cardstock and ribbon.
- Create card base, layers and paper scraps.
- Stamp images, and stamp sentiment. Colour images.
- Round corners.
- Attach ribbon.
- Adhere remaining layers.
