New Years Card - Glimmer Paste


Welcome back everyone! I'm sharing some cards I created using the December 2018 Subscription box from the Hedgehog Hollow featuring Pretty Pink Posh. I posted an unboxing video earlier this week that you can check HERE in case you missed it.

CARD DETAILS

I knew the second I saw the stencil I was going to be digging out my glimmer paste. Before I crack open the jar, I need to create my background. I'm starting with Fog Cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and ink blending Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. I'm making sure to leave a highlight area in the center. 


Next, I attach my stencil to the ink blended cardstock with some Purple tape to hold it in place. I'm applying the paste using a palette knife and the Golden Crystal Glimmer Paste from Tonic Studios. It's best to do this over a mat like the Easy Clean Mat so you don't get glimmer paste on your main work surface. Once I applied the glimmer paste, I wipe my tool and mat down quickly with a baby wipe and wash the stencil off in the sink. Do not let the paste sit on the stencil or it will be impossible to get off once dried.


I die cut the Happy New Year Script die from the Mirror cardstock that is included in the kit. I also die cut 3 more of the script from white cardstock and layered the sentiment. I use Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to attach this sentiment to the front of my cardstock and add a couple acrylix blocks to the top to help push it down onto the textured background. Let that sit for a few minutes and it will be perfect!


To finish off the card, I'm going to add some of the sequins which was also included in the kit. 

For the next card pictured below, I stamped the champagne glasses onto white cardstock and colored with copic markers. This stamp set is in the kit and also includes the coordinating die. You really get a good deal on this subscription box! 

I die cut out a large star from the Stitching Stars die from Pretty Pink Posh (out of my stash) and heat embossed the sentiment at the bottom. I lined the back of the panel with acetate and attached to white glitter cardstock using foam tape. 


Below is another example of the stencil but this time I started with Cornflower cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I ink blended Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Inks and added Silver Gem Glimmer Paste.



The Happy New Year Script die is cut from white cardstock and adhered to the front panel. For a little finishing touch, I added Silver Moondust Nuvo Glitter Drops

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration. Be sure to head over and pick up your December 2018 subscription box from the Hedgehog Hollow. The Pretty Pink Posh Happy New Year stamp set and Scripty die can only be fond in the subscription boxes!
