My Glossy Accents Fix!


Happy Sunday! Gosh why do the weekends fly by so fast? It's always Monday morning before I know it!

Just a couple of cards to share with you this morning. I'm playing catch up as I'd posted them on my own blog but haven't shared them here yet!

This first one I'm going to confess I really like (are we allowed to say that about our cards?!)

I think I like it so much because not only do I have a huge thing for butterflies, but it's also so sparkly IRL! I also applied Glossy Accents to the middle butterfly to make it stand out even more so it's not just super sparkly, but super shiny too! Glossy Accents has become one of those things I'm just dolloping on everything at the mo LOL!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams
Ink: Memento Black
Card: White/Spring Rain/Orange Zest
Accessories: Versamark Pen/Copic Spica Clear Pen/Fine Line Black Pen/Glossy Accents

This next card was made for when I was a Guest Designer over on the CAS DT on Splitcoast Stampers last Monday. I felt so honoured to be asked, but felt the pressure too! Luckily, it gave me the perfect excuse to ink up Studio Style and have a bit of fun. I love the sentiments in this set, they're so true!

Oh and check out the Glossy Accents again! It's much more effective IRL! And yup, I've now actually run out of Glossy Accents so no more glass-like button jars to be stamped until I get hold of some more LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Gosh - how did I miss that super shiny butterfly wonder ? I know I definitely haven't seen it because I would have remembered that beauty.

I see you inked up your studio set - what a great set it is too and in true style you have made it look faboo.

Thank you too my sweet ofr mylittle card. As I sit here I gaze upon a sweet little birdie who winks at me now and again ;D

Both cards are wonderful! The glossy effect is perfect. I'm sure it looks even cooler in real life! Great job!

Wonderful cards, Aimes! That Glossy Accents stuff is growing on me - guess I'll have to put some in my shopping cart next time :)

What pretty cards - Love the butterflies. I also adore glossy accents. It's a wonder that I haven't glossified my cat.
