Friday has rolled around again and the Flourishes Design Team has a treat for you today! We're digging into the Flourishes vault to showcase some of our sets that are retiring! As we make room for new, it means we need to clear out some of these beauties. So - if you like what you see along the way - be sure to add them to your shopping cart, because once they're gone - they're gone for good!
It always feels a little sad to say goodbye to some beautiful sets we've loved so well - so I know the Design Team will show them off wonderfully and you'll be inspired!
Drop by and see:
Howdy all! TGIF!!! My son has today off of school but my husband goes back to work this morning so it will just be my little guy and me for the next 10 days. Fun, fun, fun!
I've been itching to do something with glitter... I mean, who can resist glitter right? So I grabbed some glitter and some other simple supplies and made myself a glitter window card!
For my card today I used my favourite cardstock, Flourishes Classic White cardstock and I added some simple embossed lines using my Scor-Buddy.
To begin making my focal image, I stamped my beautiful roses window from the Beauty Within stamp set using StazOn ink onto some Clear Cover Cardstock.
I flipped my inked side of the clear cover cardstock to the back and then I took my Glossy Accents and filled in only the roses. I was careful to stay within my lines.
Next I sprinkled on my fine glitter. For my roses, I used 2 tones of red glitter, one more orangey then the other. (Sorry... It's very hard to see the difference in the photo.) I made sure to brush off any stray glitter particles before going on to the next area.
Then I went on to add Glossy Accents to the pink roses, then the green leaves and then finally to the background. Each time I used 2 tones of colour for added depth.
I sure hope enjoyed my simple and EASY tutorial on ho to make a glittered image. Try on your next card... maybe for Halloween!
Christine Okken is next on the list today. Make a stop and visit her blog for more retiring stamp set inspiration!
