Shimmery For My Beautiful Friend Card

Today is the last day to get the sweet July Stamp of the Month called For My Beautiful Friend

The images on this card were stamped with Intense Black ink, which works really well for outlined images because it doe snot bleed when colored in with markers or watercolor pencils. I colored the images in with Watercolor Pencils and instead of bleeding the color with a Waterbrush like I usually do, I used Close to my Heart’s Clear Shimmer Brush. It worked really well at blending the colored pencils and gave the card a lot of sparkle and shimmer. 

 It’s hard to see in the photos, but the card has lots and lots of pretty shimmer in the light.

You can get the called For My Beautiful Friend stamp set for just $5 with a $50 minimum order, but it’s only available through midnight tonight.

Happiest Place Collection | Interactive Layout

This is a fun interactive layout that that I made using the Happiest Place Collection. You can watch my process video below to learn how to make the filmstrip portion of the layout.

The film strip on the left page pulls out so that you can see the hidden journaling and another hidden photo. The layout design came from page 56 of CTMH’s retired Magic How-To Book. Watch the video for measurements and instructions on how to make the film strip.

I used one of the Happiest Place SVG files to make the little camera and cut it using my Cricut machine.

The balloon is from the Happiest Place Stamp Set and Thin Cuts Dies.  

The cute little title is from the Happiest Place Digital Art SVG Titles.

My video is part of a collaboration with the other Creative Design Team members. Be sure to check out their videos showing more creative ways to use the Happiest Place Collection.
