Hi Friends! I hope you all had a fun, safe & relaxing weekend - maybe you even had a chance to sneak in some crafty time? :) I have been a lil' busy stamping away preparing for the Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release. In case you have been missing the peeks that Claire has been sharing, be sure to visit her blog to get a little teaser of what is to come! Claire & the entire Waltzingmouse DT, including myself will be sharing sneak peeks starting on Thursday, September 9th! I sure hope you come see what Claire has in store for all of you!
I took a break from "sneaky" work & made this card. Ever since Sharon over at the JustRite Blog challenged us all to create using glitter, I haven't been able to put it down!
I "glttered up" this pretty Tattered Angels Butterfly Glimmer chip using Martha Stewart's Purple Sapphire glitter. I love the way it shimmers - almost like a girl's best friend ;)
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Laura's sketch #60 at 2 Sketches 4 You.
You know my special affection for tags right? To make the lil' tag on this card, I inked up an image from the Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 5 set then cut/embossed it using a Spellbinders™ S4-229 Labels Five die template, inked the edges then stamped the Merci sentiment which is from the Victorian Frippery set.
Notice the stamped scalloped border? I made that by using a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® LF-127 Grand Scalloped Square die template to cut a scalloped strip of paper then I inked up the ornate little image from the Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 2 set & stamped away!
That's all I have for today - Thanks for looking!
