A Glimmery Gold Note

Hi All,

Happy Weekend!  It's been a pretty slow week for me work-wise, so I've had a bit of extra time to get into the 'ol craft room.  I've been playing with a new stamp set from the Occasions Mini called Picture Perfect.  There were a couple of cards I had seen with the hummingbird, so I thought I'd jump in with him first.

My card is a CASE of this card by Melissa Davies.  I fell in love with the colors she chose...especially that Gold Glimmer paper.  Just divine.  The hummingbird is a 4-step stamp and the flower is a 3-step stamp.  Stampin' Up makes it easy.  Each stamp is numbered so you know in which order to stamp.  That just leaves the fun of picking out your colors.  For my flowers, I used Bermuda Bay & Island Indigo.  For the hummingbird I used Smoky Slate and Basic Grey in addition to the same two blues.

Item ID: 140520 Picture Perfect $27.00

I love the sequins with the hummingbird.  Not sure why, but they just fit...maybe because hummingbirds are glimmery??  SU! brought out a glue pen that works perfectly with getting these little buggers onto your card.  It's called a Fine-Tip Glue Pen. It was introduced to work with the Thinlit Dies, but it works perfectly with those tiny embellies too.

I fell in love with the simple elegance of this card.  Hope you did too!  If you would like to add any of these to your collection, just click on the 'Order Online' icon in the top right corner or pop me an email.  Thanks for stopping by!
