I love using Stampin' Up!'s shimmery white cardstock, and it's fantastic for more simple cards. It just gives it an extra "wow" without distracting too much. If you click on the image, you might be able to see the shimmer a bit better.
For this baby card the shimmery white is offset by a sage shadow insert, highlighted by the eyelet border punch. I used sage shadow as the accent colour (since this is for a "gender yet unknown" baby!). White organza ribbon holds everything together. The stamps used were Warm Words ("happiness") and Fun and Fast Notes. I used my watercolour crayons (sage shadow, pixie pink, almost amethyst for the grounding shadow) and blender pen to colour in the baby buggy image. I chose to use the blender pen over the aquapainter because I wanted a bit more control over where the colour went. Yes, I have control issues…..lol
This is the last post for April – wow! I managed a post a day (well, essentially, other than that one that didn't schedule correctly…lol). But wait, there's more! May is going to bring lots of fun things in the Stampin' Up world…and it's (Inter)National Scrapbooking Month!! Stay tuned to celebrate!
