Color Shine Project Life cards

Friday, November 7, 2014

The last Project Life Card Swap I participated in during October was all about using your Heidi Swapp Color Shine. I decided to create a background using Color Shine. I sprayed and overlapped Gold, Primrose, Peach, and Amethyst to create an ombre effect. The large wood veneer is from American Crafts... Mom and I got them at one of the classes we attended during CKC.

The papers ended up looking like this. I made 3 since I was going to cut them into 3x4 cards and I wasn't sure how the wood veneer "stencil" would look once they were cut up. I ended up not using some cards because they only had a giant heart or part of a heart on them.

I combined 2 different stamps from Ali Edwards' Story Stamp Prompt set to create a stacked "Love this". I inked my stamp and placed a small Post-it note over the other parts of the stamps.

Here's how the cards turned out.

That Color shine is so shiny and pretty!

Have a great day!

  1. Gorgeous cards, Emily! I need to use my mists more, so may need to try something like this out! :)

  2. Cute idea for a card swap :) I just got some stencils and looking forward to using them :)

    1. Thanks, Tina! Stencils would be perfect for something like this.

  3. How great are these, what a clever use of the wood veneer and stamps!

    1. Thanks, Leslie! These are both new techniques to me!
