It's Wednesday once again, time for another challenge over at Simon Says Stamp!
And the theme this week is Anything Goes! Always a favorite. :) This week, some of the DT members used Hemptique Twines.. a fabulous quality product! If you have any Hemptique in your stash, we'd LOVE to see it used.. but if not, no worries.. it's not required. :) And now, on to my card!
The DT members were each assigned another member to send a gift, and I got the ever sweet Lin. I know she's a flower addict, like me, :) so I knew I had to make her Christmas card with a poinsettia on it. THIS ONE from Hero Arts is perfect! I used the Hemptique twine found HERE to make a button/bow embellishment. Don't you love that button?! It's from Hero Arts, and it's actually clear. I brushed some Glossy Accents on one side, dipped it in Glitter Ritz Startdust glitter (also used on THIS card), and then applied a generous coat of the Glossy Accents on top to seal the glitter in. I LOVE how it came out! How about a close up? :)
The Glossy Accents gives the button a nice, smooth finish (like it was manufactured that way), while also giving the glitter depth. The Stardust has such a 'tarnished silver' hue to it.. it really pairs well with the kraft card stock! Which leads me to the wrapping for Lin's gifts:
I wanted the card and the wrapping to coordinate, so I simply used kraft package-mailing paper, and stamped the same poinsettia image all over, with the same Red Royal ink (also Hero). I added some white snowflakes from THIS SSS Exclusive set here-n-there to fill in, and tied it all up with more twine. :) The tag is another stamped/fussy cut poinsettia, with a little Glitter Ritz in the middle. I had as much fun making the wrapping as I did the card! I hope Lin enjoyed her gift/s inside. Much love to you, Lin! :)
And now it's your turn.. upload your "Anything Goes" project HERE, before 8am EST US time next Wednesday(the 2nd), and you could win that amazing voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store!
