Second last day of Sale-A-Bration.  Here is a card for you using ‘Madison Avenue’ Stamp Set.  I demonstrated this at a workshop recently.  I CASED this one from our Demonstrator “Impressions” magazine.  Did you know you can colour your silver Glimmer paper ANY colour you would like??  I know you can buy the Red and the Champagne but sometimes it is nice to have a little sparkle in a different colour.  I will tell you about that shortly.   Here is the card.


I have used the Vine Embossing Folder – and check it out!  Try reversing your folder sometimes to deboss the card.  It gives a different look.  The DSP strips are from Sycamore Street DSP.   You can’t really tell from the photo but I have also clear embossed the flowers on the Tangerine and the Summer Starfruit card.  I added some Summer Starfruit Satin stitched ribbon to finish it off.  See the Razzleberry Scallop Circle glimmer though.  It is a little hard to tell.  It is a little lighter colour than the Razzleberry colour is normallly but it gives a subtle shimmer.

To colour the Glimmer paper on this card I sponged the colour on using the Sponge Daubers. Just dab the dauber on the inkpad and “pounce” it over your card. Continually re-ink and pounce.  The more you dab the more intense colour you get.  I wouldn’t recommend doing a large area for this.  Maybe a brayer would work for that????? Not sure about that one but for small areas this is good to create your different colours.


It’s a great effect and good to know you can have other colours to that lovely sparkly Glimmer paper.

Last day for Sale-A-Bration tomorrow.  I have one more card to show you tomorrow so stop by then.
