Sparkle And Glisten

Hello Everyone and Welcome!
Today Ksenija is here, and I am happy to share with you a new project as a part of November inspiration from International DT.

Today I am featuring the Vintage Flourish red rubber stamp for a flap card. One beautiful flourish helps to build a background and serves as a focal element as well.

Tips on Making This Card:

  • Trim the panel from the cream card stock down to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2" (10 by 14 cm)
  • Stamp down the flourish in linen ink several times
  • Trim the card base from white card stock down to 6 1/2 by 4 1/2" (16.6 by 11.5 cm) and score it horizontaly
  • Stamp down the flourish in light green ink. Then apply a darker shade of ink to the stamp and dub off partially ink with a paper towel and stamp down to the first impression. 
  • Cover the Flourish stamp partially with FlitterGlu and stamp over the colour impression
  • Apply Morris Dance Megaflakes and rub off the excess of foil. 
  • Stamp the sentiment from Sparkle and Glisten set in black ink
  • Adhere the card down to the base using a double-sided tape
Please share with me in comments your ideas what other IndigoBlu stamps could be used for this technique - building a background and being a focal element.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a nice weekend!

  1. That is a gorgeous flourish and you have used it in a wonderful way here Ksenija. The inked flourish background is just perfect with the green and pretty mega flakes over the top of the flourish for the top layer, and a lovely sentiment too. x

  2. Beautiful and elegant.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous! I will have to go through my IndigoBlu stamps to see which I have that can be used for this technique! xxx

  4. A very lovely card... i love the partially flaked look. I think.i will use this technique for Christmas with some of the snowflake stamps... maybe snowflake lace, my fave...
