For this card, I used a turnabout stamp and then added a couple of extra stamps from the set. (The size of the piece of cardstock that I stamped on was 4x4.) Then I cut the piece in half. I placed the holographic paper in the middle. And then I stamped the sentiment and layered it with black cardstock. Then I went back to the diamonds and went over them with a shimmer brush for the blue diamonds. And Crayola glitter glue for the clear diamonds.

July Rainbow Card Challenge

Howdy!

Today over at the Rainbow Card Challenge Blog. We have a NEW challenge! That is to create a Tantalizing Tangerine monochromatic card.


For today's card I used a Post-It as a mask for the lipstick. I stamped the lipstick onto the Post-It and then I fussy cut it out. I made sure to cut the lipstick color from the holder. That way, I was able to stamp the lipstick as much as I needed. The tangerine color was easy to stamp. But the black had to stamped a few more times. Then I stamped the sentiment and underline. I like how it looks as though the sentiment is written with lipstick.

Stamps: Visible Image Dare to be Different
Paper: CTMH White Daisy
Ink: CTMH Intense Black, Tangerine
