Some glimmery cards...

Hi everyone! Hope you all are enjoying your summer, I feel like it's passing along so fast, I can't believe it's August!

Anyway, my first two projects use one of my all time favorite color combos - blue and green. On the first project I sprayed a Tattered Angels Tag with the following Glimmer Mist colors: Key Lime Pie, Meadow Green, Electric Blue and Caribbean Blue. The chipboard letters are from the Framed Fonts Postage Stamp Set. I cut up one the frames from that set and used it along the bottom edge of the tag. The beautiful chipboard butterfly is from the Tattered Angels Nature Glimmer Chips Set. I embellished it with a felt flower and pearl stick pins from Maya Road.

Products: Tag, Chipboard Butterfly, Chipboard Letters: Tattered Angels; Flower, Pearl Stick Pins: Maya Road; Ribbon: We R Memor Keepers; Pearls: Mark Richards; Glimmer Mist (Caribbean Blue, Meadow Green, Electric Blue, Key Lime Pie, Marshmallow): Tattered Angels.

On this next card, I placed a large silhouette sticker (from Magenta) onto white cardstock and then sprayed it with Key Lime Pie and Electric Blue GM. The glimmer mist doesn't stick to the vinyl-like sticker so after I was done spraying, I just wiped away the excess glimmer mist. I sprayed the TA Angels Nature Calling Card and the corrugated paper with Marshmallow GM and then layered them on the card with the sticker graphic. I sprayed a piece of the corrugated chipboard with Electric Blue GM and placed it behind a ornate oval Glimmer Chip from the TA Regal Collection; which I sprayed with Marshmallow GM. That great pearly flower button is from Tim Holtz.

The last two cards feature this cool stencil I got from Magenta. It is a two-step stencil - one stencil for the overall butterfly shape and another stencil for the wing pattern. For the overall butterfly shape I used Lemon Grass and Tiger Lily. For the wing pattern I used Coral Reef and Oriental Poppy. The patterned paper on card below was cut from one of the TA Tags. I sprayed it with the same glimmer mist colors that I used in on butterfly plus a little Key Lime Pie GM.

This card is similar to the one above, except here I added a little Glimmer Glass Butterfly from the TA Nature Collection. The background was made by stamping a wood grain stamp in orange ink and then lightly spraying over it with Tiger Lily GM. The corrugated paper was originally kraft colored, I added some Black Magic GM to darken it up and add a little more contrast to the layers.

Well - that's it for me today. Hope you enjoyed viewing these projects! Take care - Patty
