Hey there! I’ve had a fabulous weekend away in Ohio and can’t wait to share some of the creations I made with you! This one for today is one of my favorites. Consequently, it took the longest to make. Ha! I finally had the chance to sit down and play with the Kelly Purkey line for Simon Says Stamp, and OH BOY! There are so many possibilities.
This one started out as me wanting to use a ton of sequins, so I chose this multicolored set from Kelly Purkey.
I cut out the Falling Stars background die from some kraft cardstock and used that as a template to put little pencil dots where all the stars are. Then, I glued a sequin on top of each pencil dot using these tweezers and Matte Multi Medium. That part took a while, but I was able to chat with friends and cause general mayhem with the other ladies while I worked. And I still have SOOO many sequins left over; I barely made a dent in the bag!
Then I used glue dots to adhere the stars over the sequins in just the right position and then got to work on my sentiment. I used this Life Bubble Vertical Die 2 for the white border (out of white cardstock) and then hand-traced and cut a piece, this time in thick vellum, just about the same size as the white outline. I used this glue pen to adhere the white paper to the vellum. Then I placed the KP white letter stickers (using my favorite ruler to line them up) and pressed them into place on the bubble. I used rolled glue dots around the frame and behind the letters to adhere the bubble to the card.
Check out that sequin sparkle! It’s fabulous!
If you want to get a little behind-the-scenes look at this card in the making (as well as the rest of the weekend of fun) check out my vlog from last Friday to see a peek! I couldn’t edit while away, so I’m upload two per day for the next couple of days to my vlog channel until I’m caught up. :)
I was super productive over the weekend, so I have lots to share with you over the coming weeks. Yay! See you soon. :)
