Peace on Earth

Season's Greetings! Today, I am sharing a new card tutorial featuring some of the wonderful products from Imagine. We were given the themes of "White" and " Shimmer and Sparkle" for the month of December, so I decided to combine the 2 into one card.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Creative Medium: Chartreuse
Sheer Shimmer Spritz: Sparkle and Frost

Other:
Stampendous: Peace on Earth Stencil, Palette Knife
Tombow: Foam Tape
White Cardstock: 1 smooth, 1 textured
EK Success: Corner Rounder

Directions:

1. Tape the stencil to smooth white cardstock. Scoop out some Chartreuse Creative Medium and glob it at the top of the stencil. Be sure to have the Creative Medium spanning the entire with of the stencil.

2. Holding the palette knife at a 45 degree angle, spread the Creative Medium in a single, smooth sweep across the entire stencil. If any spots are missed, you can touch them up, but try not to overwork the Creative Medium.

3. Remove the stencil and wash off any excess Creative Medium. Let the paste dry on your cardstock.

4. Trim the dried piece and use a corner rounder punch on each corner.

5. Spray with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. You can see some of the sparkle in the photo above. In real life, it glimmers so beautifully. But it's tough to capture it on camera. You can also see the pretty opalescent green shimmer of the Chartreuse Creative Medium.


6. Create the card base with a textured white cardstock. Cut to 8" x 5 1/2." Spray the card with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You can see the shine in the above photo. Again, it is much more visible in real life.

7. Using Tombow's foam tape, apply 4 strips across the back of the stenciled layer for rigidity. Press on to card base.

The card is finished! It's subtle, but elegant and full of shimmer ans sparkle. I hope you'll give this white on white look a try!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
