So here's the cards I've been working on. This first one was fun to make. The side by side comparison shows the original on the left and mine on the right. I don't have any incolor DSP or smoky slate buttons so I couldn't add that. I just felt it was missing something so I asked some stamping friends online and a few suggested to put card stock behind the letters to make them more visible. I also chose to use the sequins I just got on my last order.
Sometimes it's great to seek the wisdom of others :) even the bible says a wise man seeks council.
Really like the final look!
I also make 10 of these pretty things :) my mom was here visitng and she let me borrow her By the Seashore stamp set and the hexagon die. I'm hoping these sell fast. Afterall, I'm in Rhode Island - the ocean state!
the detail with the ribbon is easy -- just dusted off the good ol' sewing machine :)
I made a few more too that I'll post when I get a good picture. I'll leave you with the final one I made yesterday. I have been waiting to try this dazzling diamonds powder for awhile now. I think I am reluctant to use my embossing powders because my little ones don't like the sound of the heat gun. Silly, I know... But I don't emboss for that reason. Oh yeah, and I'm lazy. :) but I wanted to bust it out and give it a try... I know now that I'll be making more! I used one of the new in colors (blue lagoon) and my stamp-ama-jig to line it up again when I stamped it with versamark. A little heat n stick and the glitter and voila! One of my favorite cards to date! I also tried a new trick with the pompom made from the seam binding. You can follow the instructions on here (http://pinterest.com/pin/Aze_WQAQgFcAbYmT9KsAAAA/) but I will just tell you now - I used a 1 3/8" circle with a 3/4" circle in the middle. Otherwise the pompom will be huge and you'll use a ton of ribbon!!
