Shimmer Tile Card with Sharon

Hello everyone. It's Sharon over here.
Happy Monday! I hope you are all doing well. I have been really sick for like a week now, and I'm still not 100%, but I wanted to share with you this card I made using scraps of white paper, and my Lindy's Stamp Gang Products.
I don't know about you, but I keep scraps of everything, thinking I'll use them for something later....what ends up happening is my pile of scraps keeps growing, and I rarely end up using it all. Well, I wanted to get rid of a few scraps I had laying around here, and came up with this.

For this card I used a few different Starburst Sprays (Bayou Boogie GoldGreen with Envy GreenMidnight Rendezvous RavenA Bit O' Bubbly), as well as an embossing powder (King Midas Gold). I embossed both birds on the card as well as some of the round tiles on the bottom of the card. I have a step by step tutorial on how I did this on video, and you can check it out by clicking HERE.
I hope you enjoyed this card and were inspired. Have a great week!

Multi-colored Flower

Happy Sunday! This is Jo and I'm going to show you step by step how to create this multi-colored flower. The photo above was taken in natural light and the shimmer just pops.

The three colors that I used are:

Starburst - Fuzzy Navel Peach
Flat Fabio - Plumeria Pink
Starburst - Ramblin' Rose Pink

I start off with this white paper flower and had separated the leaves that came with it.

I took my first color, Ramblin' Rose Pink, and sprayed it in the center of the flower. It's okay if it gets on other parts of the petals.

My second color is the Fuzzy Navel Peach. This was sprayed around the center, trying to avoid the first color sprayed.

The last color, Plumeria Pink, I sprayed on the outer edges of the flower. This particular spray is a Flat Fabio, which contains no shimmer. The previous sprays are Starbursts and they are full of shimmer and I didn't want to add too much. GASP!! Did I just say that? LOL

I just repeated all three colors again to saturate the flower. I love how these sprays blend so well together when they overlap each other. You can see that the shimmer from the Starburst sprays settled in the grooves on the petals. 

I took my heat gun and dried the flower. I also wanted to spray the leaves that I initially separated from the flower. They were already a green color but I wanted the color to be intense and have shimmer. The color I used was Starburst - Ponderosa Pines Olive.

I glued the leaves back underneath the flower and I'm done. I just love how each color adds dimension to the flower. I hope you liked my little tutorial for you guys.

Thanks for stopping by and if you haven't tried this yet, you should. The color combos are endless. It was really fun and the flower came out beautiful. All Lindy's Stamp Gang products/links are listed below. Have a great day!

Make your own washi tape with Jessica Griffin

I'm so excited to share some washi tape I've made using my Lindy's Stamp Gang products! 

Here's what you'll need...

Scotch Masking Tape, Gesso and a paintbrush
Stencils (I've used The Crafter's Workshop)
heat gun, stamps

After working with the tape so much, it lost it's stick, so I used a Glue Dots Dispenser to adhere the tape to the paper and it worked great! Once the tape was down, I die cut the front of the card, using a star die. Then, using Staz-On, I stamped a star onto a clear piece of plastic. I adhered that to the inside of the card using my Glue Dots Dispenser, stamped a sentiment inside and it's done!

Moon Shadow Magic

Greeting from the East Coast!
It's Yvonne here today... ready to share some Lindy Love with you all! Hope you're all doing wonderfully! Yesterday was pretty wonderful for me.  It was President's Day, so I had the day off!  Which meant I got to play with all of the Lindy's goodness in my crafty space.

Last week I had a chance to join Limor, another DT mate, during one of her UStream classes, and I had a blast! As many of you already know, Limor is terribly sweet and tremendously talented.  Well, it definitely put me in the mood for making a tag.  Here it is, along with the three main ingredients:
Moon Shadow Mist in Buccaneer Bay Blue & Mystic Malachite
Magicals in Baby Blue Eyes Aqua

I started with an ordinary size eight tag, chicken wire mask, and some Golden Molding Paste.  I alternated multiple layers of both Moon Shadows and the Magical, heat setting between each layer. For the rolled flowers and the flourish, I used a paintbrush to apply instead of spraying.  

I liked the swirly look of the rolled flower die, so I decided to only roll one.  The rest I used to layer on the tag.  I finished it up with the flourishes, a Jolee butterfly, and an assortment of metal pieces that were all enhanced with the Moon Shadow Mists.

Here's one more look:

Well, my friends, I'm glad you stopped by for a quick peek.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and hope you'll be back again soon.

Have a Magical Day!
