Spellbinders Glimmer of the Month Club from February
Hi All! I finally had a chance to play with Februarys Glimmer of the Month kit from February. I try and get to each kit before the next one shows up! ( I subscribe to the Glimmer and their Small Die of the Month) They are so fun, versatile and priced pretty darn nice! For me, they give me a chance to create some cards that I am not coloring. Todays card turned out so elegant. I played around a lot with this hot foil plate before I came up with the card I made. Initially I wanted to color all the flowers, I even got it to foil on my Hammermill beautifully. (Yay! saving that trick for the future) But I was not happy with those results so I tried again and now, on with the Show & Tell…
Prism foil on a glimmering paper!
The sentiment was foiled in Lavender Petal and picks up the Ink Drop paper nicely.
Other than the hot foil itself (which I consider an embellishment!) the only other embellie is the Honey Bee Crystal Clear Mix gems.

Craft Consortium Ink Drops Vivid cut with nesting rectangle, adhered with tape runner
Grapsicle layer cut with nesting rectangle, then cut a bit more, adhered with fun foam and 1/4 inch double side adhesive

Hi All! Coming at you today with another Oddball. I have to tell you, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this came out. I Personally think its because of the combo of Copic and Olo Markers. I am enjoying the addition of colors adding the Olos have given me. Has anyone else been using the Olos? I know several designer friends are and we all seem to like them! They are pretty economical also. You can buy them in in premade sets at Spellbinders and there are links for them in my Shopping List. Now, on with the Show & Tell…
Using a deckle edge on some of the layers gave my shabby Cinderella a more shabby feel !
Morning Dew on the glass slipper and Grey Mist on the skull add a bit of shine and dimension.
The mouse in her pocket is colored to match her hair!
