One-Layer Wednesday 43 ~ Shimmer, Not Glitter or Bling

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

It's so nice to be stamping and blogging again!  Why can't there be more hours in a day?

This week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge on Susan Raihala's Blog, Simplicity is to use Shimmer NOT glitter or bling on your card. There are lots of ways to add shimmer. Some of Susan's suggestions were Sakura Stardust pens, Twinkling H2Os, pigment powders, Brilliance iridescent inks or shimmery cardstock,  just to name a few.

I've been wanting to try some different card shapes.  There are so many possibilities, and so little time!  To create this fun shape I used Spellbinders Label Eight.  To add shimmer, I used Twinkling H20's to make an oval in the center of  the card (with the help of my oval Nestibilities), and then stamped the image.  Who would have thought you could use Nestibilities/Spellbinders for so many things? 

 This is my second card.  I'm not sure which I like better.

 There really is a pretty shimmer to each card, however I don't thnk it comes through in the pictures.

Stamps: Stampendous Cling Rubber for main image and  Recollections for the flourish
Paper: Canson 90LB Water Color Paper
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa and Versa Magic Tea Leaves
Accessories: Spellbinders, paintbrush

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Very pretty card! I like the one with the border accents better! :) Awesome stamp too! LOVE the words!

  2. I prefer the one with the accents too - that said they are both lovely


  3. Both cards are lovely, but, I really like the simplicity of the first...just the shimmery oval with the sentiment.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I really do appreciate it!

  4. Lovely cards. I like how you've used a different card shape. I'm going to have to remember that instead of automatically reaching for the same old size and shape!

  5. Both cards are so pretty, but I think my favorite is the first one...very CAS!

  6. LOL, it's funny how different people prefer different things. I love both cards, but (suprisingly!) prefer the flourished one and have no good reason why. The shaped card idea is lovely and so fresh and different!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
