CutCardstock Design Team Project: Thanks Darling!

A few days ago, I featured this project up on the CutCardstock blog.  They have some really great glitter paper options, so I was excited to use them for this card.

I love sparkle! It shows up a lot in my projects and for this card, I had some fun with some some new supplies and shimmery glitter paper from the CutCardstock store.   I used some POW! Silver Glitter paper along with a bit of POW! Black Glitter paper for this sweet thank you card. 

I wanted to keep some softness to the front, so instead of using colored cardstock for the front of my white notecard, I blended 2 colors of aqua ink along the edges.  I actually made the card from some Cougar White Super Smooth cardstock in 100# weight that I just purchased.  This is perfect for creating your own notecards and die cuts since it's a thicker weight.  It holds up to ink blending really well too.  I also got some 130# weight which I can't wait to try for my tags


I heat embossed the bold sentiment onto a white panel using Versamark Onyx Black ink along with some clear embossing powder.

Before adding the rest of my embellishments, I adhered the panel onto some of the POW! Black Glitter paper.  I love how it just gives a little bit of shimmer and gives some grounding to the card panel.

Who wouldn't want to twirl in a glitter skirt?



There is a huge variety of glitter paper and cardstock in the CutCardstock store, so be sure to head over there to see all the options.  Thanks for joining me and have a great day!

Video: Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project--You Are Fabulous



Hi Everyone!

It's Heidi and I'm here with a project using a fun new Echo Park paper pad from Kat's shop called Fashionista.  The fashion theme definitely called for me to incorporate the  Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle die from Kat Scrappiness.  I am in love with that wonderfully wavy stitched detail along the edge!

I wanted to break from my usual straight lines in my layering, so I did a kind of "decoupage-inspired" background with the paper pad. 

I have a video below showing how I put this card together.  I have all the products I used from the Kat Scrappiness Shop linked below.  Be sure to head over there and use the coupon code:  Heidi10 to receive 10% off your purchase.  Enjoy!

CASology Challenge:Space

week2b2272b-2bspace Hi Everyone! I played along with this week's CASology challenge using a clean design with lots of white space: casology.JPG I used a new stamp set from the Carta Bella Metropolitan Girl line along with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen in Moonstone and a sentiment from WPlus9's Sparkle and Shine.  I love mixing stamp sets.  You definitely get more mileage that way! casology-2 I lightly brushed the sparkle pen in between the lines being careful not to color the black areas.  It gives a nice watercolor look.  You could use watercolors as well, but I love the shimmery sparkle of these pens (and the control). casology-1 This card can easily be made into multiples using other colors of the sparkle pens.  In addition to Moonstone, I used Rose Quartz and Soft Jade. casology-4 Thanks for joining me!  I'll be back next time with more from the Metropolitan Girl line.
