Yippee! I got my November Simon Says Stamp Card kit and it’s CHRISTMAS in the house! My first card is using the My Favorite Things Sketch MFTWSC199. The ornaments are also My Favorite Things Christmas Ornaments cut from American Crafts foil paper in 6 x 6 packs from Ellen Hutson. The sentiment is from the companion stamp set for the Christmas ornaments by MFT called, “Christmas Ornaments”. I finished it off by stamping and embossing some snowflakes, also from the same stamp set. The paper is from the Kit, as is the heart. Enjoy!
Happy Sunday! Today I went in a completely different direction after being inspired by Sparkle Tart, a fantastic artist from Australia. She has a great video on using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica’s which I have lots of and enjoyed learning about more ways to use them. These techniques can be applied to most other mica powders as well, so check her video out. I didn’t have all the exact colors of the challenge, but did my best to create the same palette.
The card I’m making is to enter the October Color Challenge. I have been using Lindy’s since 2005 and adore these products. The colors used for my card are Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica’s in: Claim Bake Beige, Whale Watch Blue, Cape Code Coral, Black Orchid Black, and Silver Night Silver. The stamp is from Hero Arts “Leafy Vine” and the sentiment is Clearly Besotted “Love Quotes”. The flag die is My Favorite Things.
Compared to many of the entries, which are elaborate pages and canvases, my card project is simple, but I like how the colors blend so beautifully together. I wish you can see the sparkle coming off this card, it’s amazing.
