Today's card is one I designed especially for you. I wanted to do something to show you how the new Illuminate pad works. I made sure my music staff roller was completely cleaned off, then inked it up in the Illuminate pad and rolled it on that Midnight Muse. Think Frost White Shimmer Paint meets VersaMark - it's a soft, shimmery white. It didn't quite have enough sparkle for me, though, so I used a spritzer with alcohol and Frost White Shimmer Paint in it to add just a bit more shimmer.
NOTE: That "tidings of comfort & joy" is from the WORD PLAY set, which is one of the stamp sets that Stampin' Up! is selling per stamp right now. It's such a fun stamp set! If you don't have a lot of money to invest in the whole set, I'd highly recommend taking a look at getting a few of the stamps from it while you can get them "piecemeal". :)
Here's the "recipe". If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me!
Card stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse, Brushed Gold
Ink: Illuminate, VersaMark
Stamp set: Word Play
Accessories: corner rounder, dimensionals, Music Notes standard wheel and handle, heat tool, gold embossing powder, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Delights
That hardest part of anything I use it on is waiting for Dazzling Delights (or Crystal Effects!!!) to dry without putting my finger into it. :D
OK, I'm outta here. I guess I was kind of wordy today! LOL I would love to hear from you about the 12 Weeks projects I've shown so far this year in your email; please let me know what you think. :) I feel like I'm whistling in the dark. :D
Have a WONDERFUL weekend! Take the time to STAMP something - the holiday season starts NOW! :D
