Filled With Happiness

Hey everyone!!  How are you all doing?  It is going to be a super nice day today and even though we had a few inches of snow a couple days ago, it is melted and the sun is shining and it is feeling like Spring once again!  YEA!!

I have had a card "in progress" on my desk for over a week now and I figured it was time to finish it up!  All I had to do was put the pieces together and I was done!


Last week I had on a pair of black pants with a hot pink sweatshirt and that is what inspired this color combination.  I couldn't wait to sit down and play with it again.  I LOVE all the doily stamps so this just seemed like the perfect opportunity to make my own patterned paper and put them to good use.

One of my FAVORITE things about this card is a detail that you probably can't see well in the photos though!  :(  There's a closeup below.  Can you guess what it is?


Glimmer Mist (again)!  After I stamped the white piece with my Palette Claret ink, I sprayed the entire piece with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist.  The way this piece shimmers and shines now is so beautiful!! If you like the look of shimmer cardstock but don't want to pay the high price for it or you would like it in different colors, this is the way to go!!  There are other "clear" like colors too...pearl, bubbles, etc.  I just use an old box to spray the piece with and then let it dry before I adhere it to my card.


Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you have a great day!

  18. What an elegant card...and I love the shimmer! I've recently picked up a few colors of Glimmer Mist and I've found it quite addictive! I love the placement of the sentiment and the punched border...perfect placement of everything, I guess!
