I'm Here!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Life just gets so busy. How's that for an excuse?! Here is a sample I created today for my workshop this Sunday. This will be one of the make n' takes. I used an old favorite, Lovely As A Tree.

Now, what is so great about this card is that the leaves sparkle! I used the Shimmer Paint that is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. It adds so much interest to the project! I inked the leaf image in More Mustard Classic Ink and then used a sponge dauber dipped in just a little bit of the Shimmer Paint and dabbed it directly on my inked stamp. Then I stamped it on a piece of Conffeti Cream cardstock. It took my breath away it was so pretty. It's so hard to tell in this picture - you have to trust me.
To complete the card I used Really Rust cardstock for the card base, Taken With Teal for the layer behind the leaves and a piece of Autumn Meadows designer paper which is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I punched one corner using the ticket corner punch and added a More Mustard brad. I hope everyone at the workshop will enjoy making this card!
Here is a closer view. It's still hard to see the shimmer. Trust me, it's gorgeous!
Enjoy Your Day!
