Merry Monday #9

Here's my card for this weeks Merry Monday challenge:

I wanted to play with some shimmer paint that I bought one year ago, so I decided to stamp the sentiment in Versamark and emboss it with clear embossing powder.  Then, using the emboss resist technique, I sponged the shimmer paint over it.  Unfortunately, there wasn't enough contrast for the sentiment to really pop out.  So I ended up sponging on some Sweet Leaf ink, that did the trick, and the shimmer paint still shows.

Supplies Used:
Paper:  Believe - Close to My Heart (CTMH)
Ink:  Sweet Leaf - CTMH, Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Stampset:  Share the Magic - CTMH
Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Sparkles - CTMH
Scallop Trim punch, Champagne Mist shimmer paint - Stampin' Up!
Ribbon - Target
Stickles:  Waterfall, Xmas Red, Gold, Lime Green - Ranger


  1. I love that technique and think it made a really nice design. I love all those pretty papers too.

  2. This is really cute. Isn't it fun knowing you will have Christmas cards ready next year? Thanks for the sweet comment on my card.
