Ombre @ CAS Mix UP Card Challenge

Hi,  I finally have my very first Christmas Card made for this year…Woohoo!!!!  I am so far behind! How about you?  I have been eyeing the CAS Mix Up Challenge all month as I love the Ombre look on any card. This card was made using the new Glitter paste that I fell in love with as soon as I cracked it open.  You can find a link Here!  

This already stenciled background piece was sitting on my desk for 2 weeks just waiting to be used. So I got out my Ornament Dies from SU and my favorite Verve Christmas sentiment and went to work. The snowfall EF in the background is also from SU. The bows at the top are from Paper Smooches. What do you think of a non-traditional color for a Christmas card?  I kinda like it! It’s Samba Ink from Catherine Pooler and Flirty Flamingo paper in the background from SU.  I used the glitter paste right over top the ink so it would shine through. I had a very hard time photographing this card.  I guess due to all the shimmer. It looks lovely in real life.

So to wrap things up….for my card, I chose Ombre, Stamping, and Glitter Paste. Thanks for your visits and Happy Stamping! Nanc’

You’re the Sugar…

Hello, It was time to get ready for this week’s Just Us Girls challenge, and I had an idea for my card so I went to work. I got out my brand new jar of SU-texture paste (never opened) to realize it was completely dried out.  So luckily I came across something even better and Amazon Prime saved the day!  Have you heard of Glitter Paste? You probably have…I tend to be a little behind the trends. Well, it’s magically delicious if you ask me! Not only did I make the above card’s background, but I went ahead and made 5 more additional panels to use later.  So fun!  To start off my card, I stenciled some color down using some (new to me) Catherine Pooler ink. Next, you lay the stencil back over and use the glitter paste right over top.  That is where the magic happens and the color becomes more vibrant and sparkly.  I colored my sweet little MFT-PI stamp with Copics and colored pencil. The hibiscus stamp is from SU.  Here is a link to the paste!  You’re welcome. 😉

Here is another angle so you can see the shimmer.  Hope your day is wonderful!  Come join us this week at JUGS! Nanc’
