Shimmer Crystal Effects

Color Fusers Blog Hop July 2020

Color Fusers July 2020 using the Beautiful World bundle.

 

 

Thank you for joining us today for another Color Fusers Blog Hop.  Each month we bring a color challenge to you by creating a card using the same colors.  Visit the whole team to see some awesome projects in a fun color combination.

 

 

Color Fusers July Color Challenge:  Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point

 

This month I chose to create using he World of Beauty stamp set and coordinating World Map dies.  What a fun set!  Since the color combination creates an unexpected look for the theme of these stamps and dies, I pulled in extra fun with polka dots and bows.

 

I created the background by sponging ink onto a polka dot Basic Patterns Decorative Masks.

 

 

Add interest by using masks to create detailed background layers.

 

 

The sentiment was cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set.  I have used this set on so many of my projects lately, and it has fallen into the 'must have' category.  It has quickly become my favorite label set of all time for good reason!  With so many different shapes and sizes, it works for just about every single project.  Plus, there is beautiful stitching and decorative edges on each die, adding just the right amount of detail.

 

 

The Tasteful Labels dies are perfect for just about every project!

 

And it was fun creating detail to the continents with Shimmery Crystal Effects.

 

 

Shimmery Crystal Effects creates fun accents!

 

The World Map die set has a cool embossing die included.  Look at the detail on the banner layered under the sentiment.  Isn't that cool?

 

 

The World Map dies in the Beautiful World Bundle have some really neat specialty dies!

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a 4 1/4" x 11" Shimmery White cardstock base, scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" background layer in Coastal Cabana
  • Cut a 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" Shimmery White cardstock front layer
  • Cut a 1" x 3 1/2" strip of Coastal Cabana for an accent piece
  • Cut a 1/2" x 2 3/4" strip of Pacific Point for an accent piece

Sponge polka dots onto shimmery white layer in Calypso Coral ink, using a Basic Patterns mask.  Adhere to Coastal Cabana layer then to card front with dimensionals.  Stamp globe in Coastal Cabana ink and the sentiment and globe stand in Pacific Point ink, all on Shimmery White cardstock.  Die cut.  Emboss the strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the calligraphy die from the World Map die set.  Layer the Pacific Point and Coastal Cabana strips, and adhere behind sentiment.  Adhere this to card front with dimensionals.  Adhere globe and globe stand to card front using dimensionals.  Color Basic Pearls with Blends marker, and embellish card as desired.  Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to continents or other areas of the card as desired.  Color white ribbon in Light Calypso Coral Blends marker, tie a bow, and adhere to card front.

The 2019 Holiday Catalog!

 

And I have made a sweet card for the occasion, with one of my favorite bundles, Harvest Hellos.

 

 

I love the Harvest Hellos bundle!

 

I love this bundle! It includes the Harvest Hellos stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder punch

 

 

 

I had several project ideas for this bundle and this is one of the first projects I made when I got my Holiday products.  I could hardly wait to share it with you today.  It is my favorite!!

 

I pulled in another exciting item from the Holiday Catalog - Shimmery Crystal Effects! This is a staple product that you need to add to your next order!  It can be used to add accents to your projects, but is also a fabulous adhesive!  

 

 

 

Stampin' Tips: 

  • Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to your projects for detail and dimension.
  • Create custom sentiments by stamping multiple sentiments and cutting the words apart to add to your project!

 

 

Creating custom sentiments is easy!

 

 

Check out these projects that I shared the other day, and I still have one more coming soon! 

 

What do you think? 

 

Don't you love this?  Once you start playing, you won't be able to stop!

 

Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to your project for detail and dimension.

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Real Red card base 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
  • cut a Real Red front layer 4" x 5 1/4", embossed with the Subtle embossing folder
  • cut 2 Whisper White layers at 3 1/8" x 4 1/8" and 3" x 4"

Stamp the smaller Whisper White layer with the Buffalo Check background stamp in Memento Black ink and layer onto the larger white layer, than add to the Real Red front layer.  Punch a Real Red and Soft Suade apple.  Fussy cut the Soft Suade apple to look like caramel, than cover it with Shimmery Crystal Effects.  When dry, adhere to apple.  Stamp sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, cut words apart, and add to the card front.  Enjoy!
