Crafter’s Companion no image card

Hi all,

I have another post for Crafter’s Companion this month of December. What struck me as I was looking at all the projects on the Crafter’s Companion challenge blog was that there are no cards with only sentiment on it – not 1 that I saw, nah dah!

And for those of you who know me, know that I need to buck that trend and take on a challenge. I wasn’t sure if a company that made cute image stamps could also make sentiment stamps well enough to hold it’s own. So I made a card with just 1 Crafter’s Companion sentiment from the Popcorn the Bear Someone Special stamp set.

Here it is:

If I may say so, I loved how it turned out. The diecuts were all various Spellbinders dies, pearls were Viva Decor Pearl Pen, embossed background is an embossing folder from Sizzix and my sparkly glitter is from Stampendous. I actually also spritz my background with Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists but the shine didn’t quite come through on the photo (only the color did)

You still have time to use any Crafter’s Companion stamp (sentiment or image) to join us in this month’s Sparkle Challenge.

This is going to sound crazy – I got up at 3am last night and I thought I should try spray painting glue and adding sparkly sprinkles on it to see if I would get a raised 3D glittery effect. But I guess I couldn’t find glue I could spray paint at that hour so I tried spraying mulberry paper with sparkly ink just to see what kind of effect I’d get.

Here is the result (of course I had to mount it on a card) …

Mulberry paper was sprayed using Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist – Viva Pink, Electric Blue, Black Magic, Glacier, Peach Delight and Olive Vine. The effect was strangely gratifying when the colors melded together to create new colors! Impression Obsession Victorian House image was stamped on Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White Cardstock. I outlined the roof line with Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen – Silver and background behind the house was shaded with Copic marker BV0000.

Let me know what you think.
