Sending You a Smile!

Hi there, today I'd like to share with you a card I made using the new Flowers Silhouettes Set 824.
Such a fun and versatile little stamp set. I decided to go monochromatic with my card this time round, incorporating some of the awesome Nuvo products that Sparkle N Sprinkle now carries. To begin with I made some plaid background paper by daubing Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Peony Pink in stripes on white glossy cardstock and then turning it a quarter turn and sponging lines over the top with Lilac Lavender. I then ran the plaid cardstock through the embossing machine with Spellbinders Floral Doily Motives. 
A circle was then cut (using Lifestyles Nesting Circles) from the middle of the plaid background. The image was stamped on glossy white cardstock and then heat embossed with Concord (one of the fine detailed embossing powders that work so well on detailed images). A portion of the image was cut and embossed with the same circle used to cut the plaid layer. 
After turning the "doily", to break up the plaid a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet was put behind the entire piece. Purple Rain Microfine Glitter was added to the sticky surfaces around the doily.
The flowers were then colored with Copics. Next a piece of pink cardstock was dry embossed with the Die’sire Ornate Butterflies Embossing Folder. Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Lilac Lavender was sponged over the raised butterfly pattern.
This was then cut into a circle using Lifestyles Nesting Circles, and three butterflies were fussy cut from the middle of the piece to be used as embellishments.
A real doily was then sponged with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Peony Pink, as the last layer to the card base. 
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with the same Concord EP and was die cut with the little doily from the Floral Doily Motifs set. 
The card was put together with Tear-ific Tape and Mounting Tape on top of a textured pink base. Pale Periwinkle Nuvo Jewel Drops were added around the card for some extra dimension.
That finishes my card for today. Hope you've enjoyed my share today?

  12. Whoa! I love this circular motif in the brilliant monochromatic theme! Lots of texture, shine, and beauty! I especially like that you have "distressed" the edges of your DP die cut with the mousse! Thanks for always inspiring me, and teaching me more about how to combine techniques and products.

  14. So pretty, Shona! Love the soft lilac colors & the sponging over the embossing.

  15. Awesome & glimmering! I love the pearlized effects you've scored on this card, and brilliant the way you've used the S/B doily die to emboss & partially cut out the design. So pretty. It certainly enhances the SnS image so much, and I appreciate all the pictorial steps you share. You're doing some amazing things with the mousse that I don't think to try! TFS & Hugs
