Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a sparkling Christmas card and a short tutorial to share with you.
Here is the card that I designed. I love all of the layers, texture and sparkle with this card.
To start I taped down a piece of green snowflake pattern paper from the Graphic 45 Twas the Night before Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad and then I taped the Prima Bubbles Stencil on top and added Studio 490 Embossing Paste - White.
Carefully remove the stencil and then I added Stampendous Crystal Glitter - Ultra-Fine Translucent on top of the embossing paste while it was still wet.
Next I used S4-435 Picture Perfect die template to create the die cut. To add the color I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.
I used an acrylic block to scribble some of the color from the markers and then I picked up the color with the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and used it the same way you would a watercolor brush and added the color to the image.
Here is a close up of the image. Look at all the shimmer!
Here is a close up of the embossing paste with the glitter. Even more sparkle lol!
To finish off the card I added a few Sequins - Crystal Iridescent - 5 mm, a beautiful Petaloo Botanica Collection Sugared Blooms Green, and a bow with May Arts Metallic String Ribbon-Parrot Green.
Please be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all of the fantastic paper crafting products and the Blog for inspiration from the Design Team.
