Well it’s 1o’clock in the morning. Just can’t sleep. I went with my 3 girls and my husband to the movies and we saw G-Force, a Walt Disney movie. Then we went the chapters to look at some books, card magazines and scrapbooking magazines. Can you believe that the Halloween stuff is out already! I made a mistake by having a starbucks Chai latte. (which I know if I drink it past 3pm that I can’t sleep) But I couldn’t resist! Anyway, I am participating in a holiday mini catalogue swap and I just can’t decide which card to do. I started playing with products from the mini. It’s the best mini ever!!! Help me to decide!
I just wanted to create a classy simple card for Sherida Giddings’ swap. I used the Stampin’up! petals-a-plenty folder and four the holidays stamp set from the mini catalogue. I also used the stamp set tree trimmings, the specialty paper bride, whisper white paper. I dazzled it up with the pretties kit and whisper white taffetas ribbon. My images were stamped in soft suede.
Here is a close up of my ornaments (these are only stamped in soft suede)
On this card, the ornaments look lighter because I stamped my ornament with soft suede then I added shimmer paint in champagne mist with my dauber on my stamped cardstock. I just love the new shimmer paint in the holiday mini!
I know it is kind of hard to see. It is much better when you look at it in person but I need to make a decision before monday. Also my husband is very good at making compliments and adjustments about the projects I stamp but he would be very critical if I wake him up. lol
Help me out! With the shimmer paint or without??
