Graduation season is here.  This card was made using a Darci embossing folder and a Stampers Anonymous "mini motivation" set.  A Gelli Press was inked in black, silver and a dot of red ink.  The embossing folder was pressed into it.  The next step will create two cards.  The first you press paper onto the press and lift.  The second (this card) put paper into the embossing folder and run it through your machine.  The effect makes a very nice card.  The sentiment was white embossed on black. A black twine bow was attached.  Hope you enjoy.

Sparkle and Shine-Foiling

This was stamped on water paper.  The stamp is from Stampers Anonymous "Illustrated Garden" and was stamped with Versamark.  Ranger Sticky embossing powder was added to the stamped image and melted.  Gold foil was then rubbed onto the stamped image.  Water colors in shades of red and green were used to color the flower with a blue border added.  The sentiment is Penny Black.

Sparkle and Shine Day 1-Glitter

The new Sparkle and Shine Online Card Class began today with different ways to use glitter.  The card shown here uses the Glitter Die Cut Inlay demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire.

Using wide score tape a 4.25 by 5.5 white card stock was cut with a Taylored Expressions Ornate Frame Cutting Plate.  Portions of the tape were removed so that the mint glitter could be adhered to the card base.  The card needed more contrast so a black frame was cut and offset a little to help finish the card.  The greeting is from Penny Black -Stitched Flowers.  Adhesive was put on the wood butterflies and gold glitter added.  Have to say it was not the big glitter mess that I expected.  A small amount of glitter went a long ways as it was pressed by hand into the tape.  Hope you enjoy.
