I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. I love how all of the crafty companies are releasing exciting new products. So many of my crafty friends are at the CHA Creativation Event in Phoenix getting to see it all first hand ... and I won't lie, I'm jealous. Jealous of the selfies ... them creating new product samples & attending classes. Projects that I have made using manufacturer products have been on display at the annual craft show, but I have never quite figured out how to get myself there ... some day I will.
So instead, I did a little shopping for crafty supplies. Hobby Lobby had all of their store brand products 50% off, so I stocked-up on supplies including some fun new papers. When I saw the current Pin-Sights Challenge photo, I knew it was the perfect time to break out some of them.
I drilled in on the gorgeous grey combined gold and a pop of aquamarine blue ... as well as a happy, uplifting sentiment.
I can't quite figure out how to get my lighting positioned correctly to capture the metallic papers ... these are super-shiny. I used Delicata Golden Glitz Ink on my pineapple and the background of my flower. The rest is stamped in Aquamarine.
Stamp's are Lawn Fawn's Get Well Soon (such a great little set). I just stamped randomly on a larger piece and then cut it down for my single layer card. I used the tiny heart stamp to fill in some of the blanker spaces.
I start with scraps of paper (in this case, ivory cardstock) and cover it with rows of washi (vertical, horizontal, diagonal ... your choice) starting in the middle and moving outward alternating sides.
I use my non-stick sheet and extend the tape beyond the scrap so I can trim the sides to get a nice even finish.
