Hi there,

Today I'm posting this from sunny Sanibel Island in Florida! I'm down here for a few days visiting a girl friend and have been on the go constantly, thus the reason I'm a little late with my regular Thursday posting! Anyway, I'd like to share a card using another of the November Reveal Sets, Festive Lantern Set 808 together with a few of the new Nuvo products.

I used the large Nuvo Glue pen to stamp my image on white cardstock, letting it dry first before applying the Sunkissed Copper Gilding Flakes

I stamped the poinsettias three times in Versamark and heat embossed with Copper Dreams. These were then fussy cut and both the lantern and flowers were colored with the following Copics: Y17, YR16, R22, R29, E13, E19, YG25, YG67, B60.

The lantern was die cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large and before removing the dye I sponged on some Memento Dandelion ink.

I ran a piece of red cardstock through a freebie embossing folder with poinsettias that came with a UK stamping magazine. Fresh Copper Nuvo embellishment mousse was daubed to bring out the raised pattern.

White Blizzard Glitter Drops were applied to the candle. Moonstone Glimmer Paste was applied to the raised middle poinsettia and Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were applied to the center of the top poinsettia too.

The sentiment from the Holiday Foliage Set 475 was stamped in Versamark on white cardstock and heat embossed with Copper Dreams. It was die cut with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Two. This was threaded with copper organdy ribbon and attached to the base of the card with foam squares. This was then layered to a piece of white cardstock edged with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape, onto which I burnished the Copper Gilding Flakes again.

The lantern and poinsettias were connected with tape and foam squares and were layered on to the card front.

... and that completed my card for today.

Hope you've enjoyed my share today! I'll be back next Thursday with my final November reveal card.

  3. OH! so VERY beautiful, love the texture and shine and I learned more from you with your wonderful tutorial. Thank you

  4. Lucky you to be in Sanibel (where I hope you have warm sunshine to enjoy!) with a dear friend. Love all the products you've used on this card (clever way to use the glue too) and the gilding flakes really shine on this darling image. Loving that wonderful Poinsettia EF and of course the poinsettia flower treatment is just brilliantly glowing! A terrific card, and you are so imaginative when it comes to creating with these new products. Enjoy your wkend! TFS & Hugs

  5. Wowser! that candle looks REAL! Did you have to clean your stamp immediately after applying the nuvo glue? Shona, your card is gorgeous - it must look incredible in person. On Thursday, I'm publishing a card that mentions you - just a heads up so you can wonder what it is about LOL Thanks for sharing all the valuable tips for creating! I hope I can remember long enough to do them! Happy Thanksgiving, Shona!


  6. Shona, your lantern is so pretty. Great coloring and love your use of the copper flakes. I like the poinsettias at the base, makes it look like the lantern is nestled in a poinsettia patch. Beautiful card.


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share in part of your day. I would love to hear what you think about my latest creation!
