I signed up for another Online Card Class; this one is Sparkle & Shine. I had hoped to get more projects completed and posted before the live gallery closes but work had other plans. I did get a ton of inspiration and seriously learned why the PearlEx powders I own have never produced a good finished product...they do not have a binder!!
I will experiment with many of the techniques in the coming weeks but for now here are the only cards that I was able to finish. I made Mother's Day cards for my mom, my mother in law and my grandmother. I created the flower using a scribbled circle and a flourish:
I used Papertrey Ink Circle Scribbles Dies to make the flower and followed Jennifer's in-lay technique using a Lovely Lady scribble circle. I do not have any adhesive sheets but I do have a Xyron 5" sticker maker that worked great to hold the Doodle Bug Designs Sugar Coating Glitter. The 'flower stem' is from PTI's Fancy Flourish stamp set. I used an EK Success punch for the little tag.
Other supplies are: PTI Stamper Select White card stock, New Leaf pattern paper & ink, Versafine Onyx Black, Sew Easy thread, 3M foam tape, Spectrum Noir glitter pen for the tag, PTI My Mother, My Friend for the Mom sentiment and inside I used PTI Keep It Simple: Mother.
With the popularity of the Beauty and the Beast movie right now I think this resembles the rose. Thanks for looking.
