Lots of Shimmer and Shine

Welcome!

We are several weeks into the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog and I have to say, it has some pretty fabulous papers!  So I am showing two of my MUST haves from the catalog.  They are DRY BRUSHED METALLIC 12 x 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper and the FINE SHIMMER 12 x 12" Paper Pack. 

When I say the catalog does not do the Fine Shimmer paper any justice, I mean it.  Just take a look below especially the second picture. If you look at the picture in the catalog or in my Online Shop, you can not even tell it has shimmer and shine to it.

The Artistically Ink Bundle is still a favorite from the Annual catalog, and the simplicity of the die cut flower over top of the two shiny papers just makes a quick, easy and beautiful card.  

My card base and flower die are Basic Black CS.  There is a layer of Soft Sea Foam CS that is 4-1/8 x 5-3/8.  

Each strip of the Dry Brushed Metallic and Fine Shimmer papers are 1-3/4 x 4"

OH!!!  Wondering what that ribbon is?  Well, I used the Balmy Blue Ribbon and colored it with Soft Succulent Ink.  I added the ink to the ribbon with a Blending Brush. 

I hope you liked this project.

Sale-A-Bration Dandy Designs Paper

Welcome!   

Sale-a-Bration is such a great time to earn something for free and the Dandy Designs 12x12 Designer Series Series paper is one of my favorites this time around!

Below is a sample made by my fellow Demonstrator, Leigh Amburgey.  We participated in a small shoe box swap and this was Leigh's design.  

#creativecardcloset #SAB2023 #LisaBrown

The Dandy Designs paper has great colors!  Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Petal Pink, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent.  That's a lot of coordinating colors, isn't it. 

She used Thick Basic White for a card base, then a layer of Soft Succulent measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8

The 3 (three) pieces of Dandy Designs DSP are:  1-1/4 x 5-1/8... 2-1/2 x 1-3/4... and 2-1/2 x 3-1/4

The flower and stem is from the Two-Tone Flora Bundle from the Jan-April Mini Catalog.   Along with the Something Fancy Bundle for words.  Actually, these two stamp sets are available in a collection called Fancy Flora Suite Collection.  Both stamp sets have coordinating dies, ribbon, gems and some fabulous glimmer paper!

Non-Christmas Card Using Christmas Barn Bundle

Don't you like when a stamp set gives extra life?  Meaning, you can use for other occasions other than what they are meant for.  So even though my project features a New Bundle Called - Christmas Barn, I made an all occasion card.

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

Hi there...  Are you looking forward to spring just as much as I am?  We have had some glimpses recently and some potential warm weather in the next few days.  Can't wait!  These projects will hopefully help you feel the spring bug. 

I have 3 card projects for you that are super easy and feature the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks.  You can see my first posting using this mask HERE.  Be sure to check it out. 

1.)  Layered Butterfly with decorative corners.  The bottom of the butterfly is a light layer of Bermuda Bay and the butterfly detail is heavy, multiple layers of Bermuda Bay.  I applied my ink using Blending Brushes.

3.)  This butterfly truly shows off why these masks have the word "Layering" in their name.  You can layer the patterns to get different affects.  Gorgeous Grape ink applied with Blending Brushes with a light base coat and multiple layers for the dark detail.

Making a Quick Decorative Background

Want to make a quick decorative background?  Have you seen the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks (#158142) in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  

These masks are awesome but be sure to sign up for my blog notifications so you can see why they are called "layering" masks.  You won't want to miss that.   (Update:  new post LINK)

For this project,  I dressed up  the background by using my Blending Brushes and rubbing  Crumb Cake Ink over the mask.  Notice the subtle light and dark areas.  You can control how much ink you spread with the brushes.

The best part about this easy card is that you can use any stamp and die bundle. I have put a couple of suggestions below.
