Copper…Can You Have Too Much?

I seem to have a “thing” for copper these days. If there is a product that has copper in it, or on it, I buy it! And, I use it. Today’s card features three copper products. Can you tell which ones they are?

The inspiration for this card came from a beautiful card by Louise Sharp, one of the design team members over at Global Design Project. Click on the icon below and go over to see the designer’s and participant’s cards.

Design Notes for Copper Card:

As much as I love the colors of Louise’s card, I decided to change them up in my card. The fall theme seemed to run through my mind. I used the Seaside Embossing folder to add some texture to the piece of Crushed Curry. Nice, but it needed something else. Copper Shimmer Paint! I used a Sponge Dauber to spread some color and bring out the embossing. The Copper Foil Sprig and Gold Glimmer leaf were tied together with some Copper Trim. So, there you have it, three copper products. I stamped the sentiment on some Crushed Curry card stock, cut it out with one of the Framelits from the Stitched Labels Framelits set. Then I cut a piece of Copper Foil to go behind and around the sentiment…one more little copper touch!

The envelope and the inside couldn’t be left unstamped!

Big Thanks for Shelli

Do you know who Shelli Gardner is? She is the founder of Stampin’ Up!. I’ve been lucky enough to meet her a few times and of course know a lot about her through Stampin’ Up! She has done so much for the company and for all of the demonstrators. This week Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights is featuring thank you cards for Shelli. I have met so many wonderful people and learned so much through Stampin’ Up! Not making a card for her was just not in the mix! I used the beautiful Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for her card.

She is so kind, I thought that was the perfect sentiment.

Design Notes for Share What You Love Card:

I had no hesitation about what paper to choose for this card. The Designer Paper called Share What You love was just a logical choice. Many of the sheets have a pearly finish to them. I love that. However, the sheet that I selected did not have that finish. So, I added it. All it takes is a dauber and a little Frosted White Shimmer Paint. Easy Peesey. Do you love it?

The other detail on the front of the card was the piece of Mint Macaron card stock that I cut with the Delicate Lace Edgelits. I think I even made it look better with the addition of some Mint Macaron ink that I sponged on it.

I am really loving these edgelits. Check them out. Gotta give a shout out to my friend, Brian King here. I never even noticed them in the catalog but once I saw them on his web site, I had to have them! See his card using these here.

When I first started designing the card, I used some vellum with the Edgelit. I decided that wasn’t really what I wanted and put the piece aside. But wait, after I sponged it, it was perfect as a little addition for the inside. Let nothing go to waste!

Congrats and Keep Crafting Forever

It’s always fun to make a Congratulations card. I have a downline who is close to promoting. I want to be ready with congratulations!  The Crafting Forever stamp set was a natural choice for this card.

Design Notes for Crafting Forever Card:

Well, I had fun with some of my favorite products when I made this card. First, I heat embossed the sentiment and the pot of brushes – always a fun time for me. Then I used Stampin’ Blends to color in the brushes. But, my newest fun item also showed up. I used some of the Shimmer Paint on the card stock. You may know that many of the sheets of paper in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack have a pearl finish. I love that. However, I realized that the two papers I chose for this card did not have the pearl finish. Shimmer Paint to the rescue. Shake, dauber – pearl finish! Now I have Pearly paper whenever I want with the swish of a dauber.

I also added some of the Designer Paper to the inside and to the envelope.

Fun with Shimmer Paint

Who knew!?  I’m loving Shimmer Paint. It’s been sitting on my shelf for a few weeks and yesterday was the day. Now I’ll have to stop myself from using it for everything.

Design Notes for Shimmer Paint Card:

Well, I really did have fun with the Shimmer Paint. I tried stamping then adding Shimmer Paint, adding the Shimmer Paint after the stamping, Then I tried stampin with Shimmer Paint. Oh Yeah! Here are some of my trial efforts!

Frost White Shimmer Paint, Daisy Delight stamp set, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

 

I ended up liking all of them but for this card, I used some of the daisies that I made by actually stamping with the Shimmer paint. The Paint comes in a little bottle. Shake it well, then you can use a Dauber to add the paint to the stamp.

The other daisies on the card were stamped off before I stamped onto the Whisper White card stock. I used the “Thank You” sentiment from Daisy Delight stamp set with some Mint Macaron ink. After I cut it out with a Framelits from the Lakeside Framelits set, I sponged around the edge to give it a little pop.

The final touch was to scatter some Faceted Gems around the card.
