Sparkle Me This

I thought I would wrap up the week with a layout I created for KaiserCraft using the Tea Break Collection.  I had this picture of the flamingos from the Animal Kingdom Disney Park and somehow they just seemed perfect for this collection.  Let me tell you, you might not be able to see it really good from the picture but man this layout twinkles.  I've added glitter to the flowers, leaves and also the fountain.  It's really pretty and sparkly. 

Have a great creative weekend and I'll see you on Monday.

Directions for Project:
Create base easel card, you can find the tutorial here.  For the top cut a 6 x 6 base designer card stock. Cut two Decorative Corners from the Antiquity Paper in black.  Adhere one into the right corner using Xyron adhesive.  Attach the second corner in the top left but just a portion as shown and snip away the excess.  Do this neatly as you'll use the other portion of the left over corner in the interior of the card.  Stamp and cut Tattered Blossom flowers in various sizes.  Ink with three different shades of ink with the lightest color in the center and the darkest on the edges of the petals.  With your tweezers wrinkle the edges of the petals and layer and glue together. In the center add a generous dollop of dries clear glue and finish flowers with gala glitz and spray mist.  Stamp and cut two leaf flourishes from the classic leaf stamp.  Arrange the flowers in clusters as shown on card and tuck in leaves (cutting some apart) as shown.  Fussy cut tickets from paper and add to the front to finish off.   

In the interior of the card cut 6x6 designer card base.  Cut your left over corner so it is balance and adhere with Xyron.  Stamp Moments with You sentiment and fussy cut out.  Adhere with foam tape and apply over the corner die to finish card.

Mixed Media Mini Album

This is such a fun mini album I created for KasierCraft.  All the trinkets and ribbon hanging off gives it such interest.  The collection I used for this projects is Novembers release " Through the Looking Glass" and if you couldn't tell it was my favorite this month. 

I inked my handmade flower and then painted it with Ice Resin for a waxy look.  I loved the way the ink bled just a bit when painted, it really adds to the grunge whimsical feel. 

One more view of the flower as I really think it's the center piece of the project.  I'll see you on Wednesday with a Heartfelt project so until then.......:)
