Welcome to another Fabulous Friday! Today’s project it the final look at the Blended Seasons Bundle and the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2. Today is also the very last day to order these items! Have you seen today’s video? If you haven’t, you can see it on my YouTube Channel. While you’re there, please like and share the video. Here are the measurements for today’s card:
- Card base in Cajun Craze cardstock, cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Copper Glimmer Paper (not available until 9/5/18) cut at 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
- Shimmery White Cardstock cut at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
- Whisper White Cardstock cut at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
Okay, so the Copper Glimmer Paper should be a hint at one of the sneak peek items! Yes, it’s going to be available on September 5th when the upcoming Holiday Catalog goes live. Can I just say GORGEOUS!!!! And that copper pairs so well with Cajun Craze and you know me and bling…I just had to use it! So that strip is just adhered right to the card base. Then I stamped the leaves in Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with the Garden Green, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry pencils from the Assortment 2 pack. If you haven’t gotten them, please don’t wait!! You will kick yourself on Saturday, trust me!! Once I finished coloring the leaves, I blended them with a Blender Pen and then the Wink of Stella. That Wink of Stella really finishes the blending nicely with a hint of shimmer, then add the Shimmery White cardstock and it is just beautiful! It takes your watercoloring to another level! Next I stamped the sentiment in black and brought out the new Bright Copper Shimmer Paint, also a sneak peek!! Yes, Stampin’ Up! is bringing it back!!! You are going to LOVE this stuff!!! After I stamped the sentiment, I took a paint brush and just tapped my finger to splatter on some of the paint over the entire piece of cardstock. I really like how the coloring and splatters will be different with every card.
To adhere this down to the card front, you need to use Mini Glue Dots on the portion that will go onto the glimmer paper. And, if you’re as impatient as I can be and not want to wait for the paint to dry…you can use Mini Glue Dots on the entire thing. 😉 Next I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add the leaf on the cardstock that goes on the inside of the card and then adhered it down. Isn’t that gorgeous?
Now don’t miss out on these items! You can order right now by going to my online store and when you use Hostess Code QQ3DCGDJ, I will send you a pack of handmade cards. Today is also the last day of Bonus Days, which means when you order this bundle today, you will get a coupon to use next week on your first order from the Holiday Catalog! But hurry!
