I just got some new toys... BIG GRIN, the bird stamp on the inside by Penny Black, love it and the embossing folder on the front by Ultimate Crafts - Allura Collection "Nine of Diamonds".
And I finally decided to play with my Shimmer Sheetz...
I side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h). Adhered a piece of pale pink textured cardstock edge to edge.
Inked up my embossing folder with Distress pad "Fossilized Amber", placed my white cardstock on the uninked side and then closed the folder and ran through my machine. Removed from folder and hit the high points with "Spun Sugar" Used a Prismacolor Brush Marker in a deep pink to draw my faux stitching. Trimmed it down and adhered to a bright blue textured cardstock. Used my layering ruler set to trim the border down to 1/16", tied some Sari ribbon "Sunrise" into a bow, which is a nice variegated ribbon, then adhered these two layers to the pink front.
Adhered some Sookwang tape to the back of a piece of pink Shimmer Sheetz and die cut the "Thanks". Must admit, I did have to help it a bit with my x-acto knife even using the newest Sizzix Precision Base metal plate. (ps I have the negative piece for another card...I also taped the little drop out pieces to the negative piece not to loose them...)
Added some Peel Offs flowers on the upper corners. Colored the negative of those flowers using a deep pink Spectrum Noir alcohol pen. Added some deep pink rhinestones on the lower corners.
On the inside, stamped the sentiment text (Quietfire Design) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
Stamped the bird on branch (Penny Black "The Sweetest Sound") using Distress mini pads (on the bird: "Mustard Yellow", "Evergreen Bough", "Salty Ocean", "Black Soot", Tree branch: "Vintage Photo", "Picked Raspberry" & "Mowed Lawn".
Then sponged some blue using a dirty sponge around the edges.
