Shimmerz Paints: Cherish These Moments

 

Hello friends! I have another layout up on the Shimmerz Paints Blog. I had so much fun creating this layout. I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe which I modified a bit and I used a few chipboard stickers from the new Crate Paper Heart Day Collection. These were the perfect embellishments for this layout. The background paper is from the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa Collection. It added the perfect background for my layout. I love mixing different collections. Head on over to my blog post to see all the details of the awesome Shimmerz Paints products I used to create this.

Sketch N Scrap DT Card Sketch #67

This months first card sketch is #67 by the very talented Mandy Reedyk. The first thing that caught my eye was the vertical design of this sketch. I was also really drawn to the cluster of circles vertically lined up on one side of the card. This design is very pleasing to the eye. I was very excited to create my card.

This sketch was perfect for a Valentines Day Card. For this card I wanted to create a fun, non traditional Valentines Day Card. I began with black recollections cardstock as my base. I used a Momenta Chevron embossing folder to create some texture on the front layer of my card. I then took a scallop circle punch and punched out two circles which I made into shaker pockets. I then filled those pockets with fuchsia and gold sequins. I added a few additional circles that I punched out of black cardstock as well as velum. I brought in some more gold with the Studio Calico Gold Doilies and the chevron circles I punched out of a sheet from a DCVW Gold Foiled Velum 6×6 Pad. I stamped a few hearts in different sizes on the velum paper using Memento Dew Drop Ink pad in Lilac Posies.  I used the same ink and a wooden block stamp to stamp my sentiment. I them fussy cut the bigger hearts and my sentiment. For the smaller hearts I used a small heart punch. As a finishing touch I took a white gelly roll pen and a black thin point sharpie pen and created faux stitching lines around the hearts and one of the circles.
