Awesome - Pearlized Enamel Effects Basic

                                    


My card is made using the Splendid Thoughts Stamp set and the coordinating dies.  What makes it different from all the other cards I have made from this stamp set is the Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics. These bottles of fun are hiding on page 59 of the mini catalog.  I had such fun playing with the different colors.  Using the white and the reinkers you can made any color you desire. The background layer was created using the white and bunched up Saran Wrap - just dab it on and let it dry.  The leaves and flower pieces were colored using the different colored enamels and the water painters.  The pot was die cut in Gray Granite and the white enamel was dabbed on using a piece of crumpled up wax paper. I was too lazy to go find the saran wrap.  when the card was finished I added small beads of the white as jewels to the card.  It makes great embellishments. 


 Below are closeups of my card.








I watched a great YouTube video by Kylie Bertucci on this product. You can view it here. Kylie did hers in Mint Macaron and I made mine with Pool Party.

More Hello Harvest Cards

 


I had lots of fun playing with the Hello Harvest bundle.  The weather here today feels like Fall so these cards are so appropriate.  My last blog post showed the card we made in class for September.  You can see the post here Below is the inside of the card above.


The card below has pumpkins stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White embossing powder on Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.  They are then die cut using the coordinating dies.



The card below features the lovely Rustic Harvest designer series paper.



The last card has the floral image stamped twice with a space in the middle for the sentiment.

Hello Harvest Pumpkin Card September Class

 


We made the card pictured above in all of my September in person card classes. If you are local to Hendersonville, NC and are interested in taking a class please contact me. This stamp set along with the matching dies, Rustic Pumpkin, can be found in the mini catalog on p. 50. The designer series paper is also in the mini catalog and it is Black & White 12" x 12". The old olive panel is embossed with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder.  It can be found on p. 81 and p. 53 of the mini catalog.  The embossing folders in the mini catalogs are hard to see for me anyway.  I just don't see them until folks start using them and I am wondering where they got them.  I am going to try harder with the next mini catalog to feature them in the beginning.  this card is a note card size since I used the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes.  You get 20 cards and 20 envelopes and a coordinating box is included. It would make a great gift for someone.  

Here are two different insides for this card, which do you like better?
