Playing with Bright and Beautiful

August 7, 2014 1 Comment

I’ve received some of the items in the upcoming Holiday Catalog and couldn’t wait to play.  The set that I’m using today come in one of the bundles available this month as part of the Big Shot Bundle Promotion.  But before I show this new set and a greeting from the upcoming Hostess Set Good Greetings, you should take a look at this month’s new digital downloads.

August 8 Monthly Digital Downloads

 

Now on to my creation for today.  When you’ve seen it, I’d love for you to leave me a comment.  I had a hard time making a decision today and would love to have your help.

Bright and Beautiful Color Decision from theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

So, I made this card twice, once with Lost Lagoon and again with Coastal Cabana.

So first, here’s my card on Lost Lagoon.  The Star Framelits, that are part of the bundle, were used to cut out the star.  You can get this bundle free with the purchase of a Big Shot.  Or, you can get it at a 15% discount if you already own a Big Shot.   Did a mention this is a sneak peek set for the Holiday Catalog?  The bundles are the only way to get it before the end of August.

The sentiment on the card is from Good Greetings.  I love the handwritten look of the font.  It was inked in Versamark and then embossed with Silver embossing powder.

Here’s the same card on Coastal Cabana.   On both cards, I started by sweeping a mixture of Coastal Cabana and alcohol across the Whisper White layer with an Aqua Painter.

 

Then, I added to bits of the skid marks from Gorgeous Grunge.  These were inked in Versamark and embossed with Silver embossing powder.

 

 

Bright and Beautiful Dazzling Diamonds star from theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

 

Here’s a close up of the sparkly star.  The image was inked with Versamark.  Then I added Heat and Stick.  You really can’t be without this if you like to use glitter on your projects.  After heating slightly, Dazzling Diamonds was added and heat set.

After adhering the star with Stampin’ Dimensionals, don’t be skimpy as you don’t want the star points to droop, I shaped and added the “sparkle banner”.  The final detail is a Vintage Faceted button added with a couple of Glue Dots.

 

 

So help me out and leave a comment letting me know which color you prefer – Lost Lagoon or Coastal Cabana

Then…

    I like both your “stars”, maybe Coastal Cabana just a bit the most! Love this idea for an everyday use of this Bright & Beautiful Bundle. Thanks for sharing!
