Glittery Gold Sunny Hi

It's Friday and I'm back to share this glittery gold sunny hi card with y'all today.  I love glitter and I had so much fun playing with this piece.  You can see I could not bear to cover up all that gorgeous glitter, so I kept it simple with a little die cut sentiment covered with the same glitter as the background.

I started with the new Rays stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and taped it down over some dark blue navy cardstock.  I spread some Golden Crystal Nuvo Glitter Paste over the stencil, took the stencil off, and let the paper and paste dry over night.  I spread a little scrap piece of navy paper with the same Golden Crystal glitter paste and let that dry before using the "hi" die to cut it out.   I glued the glittery die cut sentiment to a small navy circle and then placed that in the center of my glittery rays background.

I can't wait to get this in the mail to a friend who needs a little ray of glittery sunshine.   Go check out the awesome stencils from A Colorful Life Designs - you need this Rays stencil.  Yes, you do!  To save 10% on your order, enter in this code, HollyFan10, when you check out.  Happy shopping!

Thank you for being a Friend

Happy Friday, everyone.  I'm back with a colorful card to share with y'all today.  I started by sponging some inks over the Simple Grid stencil from A Colorful Life Designs on the left side and I gradually let the colors fade out to the right.  I used mango, melon, and grape colors for my background. 

Next, I stamped the Nature's Paintbrushes silhouette (Penny Black) with black ink onto my stenciled background.  The sentiment is from The Ton, and I can't help singing the theme song from The Golden Girls every time I look at it.  LOL

Fluffy Yellow Flowers

Did you see the June 2019 stencil release from A Colorful Life Designs?  These Layered Fluffy Flowers are just one of the fabulous new stencils available.  I wanted to see how these looked in yellow, so I used Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink for the bottom layer, Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink for the middle layer, and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink for the centers (top layer).  I love this color combo!  I've tried this with pink (see this post) and now yellow.  I need to play with purples and blues and oranges - wouldn't those be awesome?

I kept this card clean and simple with the addition of a small sentiment from The Greetery.  I stamped it with Versamark and covered it with Princess Gold embossing powder from Ranger.

Elegant Floral Birthday card

I'm back with another card using a stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.  This time I am going dramatic and elegant and sparkly with this Lace Doily.  I placed this Lace Doily stencil on black cardstock and spread some Black Diamond Nuvo Glimmer Paste all over the stencil.  It's a very subtle effect, and when you move it around in the light, you can see the glitter (see picture below).

Isn't that cool??  If you know me, you know I love my glitter.  :-)  After the paste dried, I added the flower, leaves and sentiment (all from Altenew).
