More lunar paste. It is a little messy but the shimmer is worth it. This time I used yellow (shooting star), green (tropical tango), blue (clear skies) and purple (crown me) on a mod circle stencil.
Card 9: Celebrate in a turquoise/teal-ish foil on a turquoise card base
Card 10: You are Loved die cut from gold metallic cardstock on vellum
Once again, used Simon Hurley's Lunar Paste in Crown Me (purple) and Prom Queen (pink) and Newton's Nook's Confetti Stencil on a 6x6 piece of white cardstock. The hard part here was what to do with it after it dried. I ended up cutting it to have two rectangles, thinking I'd use them on two cards but then I still had another strip left over so I ended up making 3 cards from this one background!
Card 6: OH HAPPY DAY! is pink oxide ink embossed on vellum with clear embossing powder, all laid out on a lilac card base
Card 7: BIG BDAY vibes is purple oxide ink embossed on vellum with clear embossing powder on a hot pink card base
Card 8: Birthday wishes is black ink embossed with black embossing powder on a lilac card base
I've been making so many cards lately but haven't had a chance to post them or blog about them. But that changes today!
Last week, I took my new glimmer machine and my lunar pastes over to my crafty friends' house and we just played and made a bunch of stuff. I came home with several backgrounds and spent the next 3 or 4 days trying to turn those into cards. It was way harder than it should have been!
In the end, I made 13 cards from the stuff I made that day. I'll blog about them in groups based on the technique used or how they are related.
Cards 1 and 2
I recently acquired Simon Hurley's Lunar Paste (don't know about Simon? Google him. Amazing story and he is my oldest son's age). Anyway, his lunar paste is really creamy and dries fairly quickly. I took this pyramid stencil I have and covered it with the clear skies (blue), crown me (purple) and prom queen (pink) lunar paste. I forgot to take the before picture but you can see the cardstock after I cut out the pieces. I got 2 backgrounds plus a sentiment out of that cardstock and probably could have used the scraps, too (I didn't because I was having a hard time figuring out what else to make!)
Card 1: Hello Script in Gold Foil. I dry embossed that same stencil on a piece of white cardstock and lined it up with the circle cutout lunar paste background on top of it. Added the gold foiled hello and some bling.
Card 2: Bold Hello in Silver Foil. This background was big enough and colorful enough to have it on it's own. Added a little silver metallic cord and popped up the hello foil and it's vellum shadow on some foam tape.
