Muse, Simon Says Glitter, and Little Tangles
I have been so busy posting for the CAS3 Online Card Class that I fell behind on challenges last week. So, I did not want to miss them this week. When I saw Marion's great Muse card, I immediately fell in love with it. The ideas have been percolating all week. I knew that I wanted to use the rainbow colours and the bold black "Hello". I dreamt this card the other night and finally got into my craft room this morning. In the meantime I saw that the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is "Glitter It" and that at Little Tangles it was to create a card and envelope. So, I am entering this card into all three. I used some of the techniques I learned in the online card class too (inlaid die-cuts).
So, to create this card I stamped the hello "brick" background with Neat and Tangled's "On the Strip" using a rainbow of Hero Arts Shadow inks. Then I die cut the Simon Says "hello" from the panel. I die cut four more Hellos (3 in white and 1 in black) and inlaid them. This way I get a seamless layered look. Lastly to add a bit of glitter, I added a layer of clear Wink of Stella to my sentiment. I must admit that I love my Wink of Stella clear pen the best - which means I go through them way to quickly!
For the envelope, I used my We R Memory Keepers Envelop Punch to make a standard size envie - I custom made it because I felt the weight of a regular envelope might not stand up to all the ink. I masked off a rectangle in the center for the address and used N & T's " On the Strip" again. I think this would make a geat card set to give away!
I am thrilled with the way the card turned out. Thanks for stopping by - I love to hear your feedback.
