Let it Shine!

This course is all about adding SPARKLE! Foil, embossing, glitter, and gems! These are the cards I was inspired to create by this class.

Vintage Roses Add-on

Card 1

I began this card by stamping foliage from Altenew’s Vintage Roses Add-On Stamp in clear embossing ink. I then poured gold embossing powder, shook off the excess and heat set it. Next, I stamped “I’m always here for you” from Altenew’s Strength Blooms Stamp set in clear embossing ink, and heat set gold embossing powder on white card stock. I die cut the sentiment and attached it to gold foil card stock using foam tape. I attached my project to an A2-sized gold foil using double-sided tape.

I decided to add bit more detail. I used Distress Oxide ink in Antique Linen, and pearl embossing powder to stamp additional leaves. I die cut them and attached it with foam squares.

Card 2

Watercolor Roses Stamp and Die set

 For this card, I die-cut white and pink card stock together. I attached a double-sided adhesive sheet to the white card stock. I slice both pieces together with a paper trimmer. I removed the cover sheet and poured a generous amount of extra fine light pink glitter over the sticky side. I then attached it to the pink card stock by taping it together on the backside.

I then used Altenew’s Watercolor Roses Stamp set with Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar, and Worn Lipstick for the florals, and Bundled Sage for the leaves. I used the coordinating dies to cut the elements out. I adhered the leaves with liquid glue and foam tape for the roses. On a separate, I stamped “Believe in yourself” included in this set. I adhered a pearlized vellum sheet to soften the black dye ink used for the sentiment strip and added pearl stickers to the corners. I attached this piece to my project with foam tape.

I attached my finished project to a blank card using double sided-tape.
