Sparkly dress up

Evening all!
After breakfast, a long dog walk in the park, lunch, then swimming,  I decided I really wanted to have a play with the All Dressed Up bundle I got in my last delivery...I've used it once last week but I wasn't very happy with it. So with a bit of playing, this is what I've come up with...

I decided I wanted to make a sparkly, girly, pink dress, but I didn't have any pink sparkly stuff. But wait! I have been known in the past to just colour something in if I didn't have the right colour. Sooooo, out came the Silver Glimmer Paper, a Primrose Pink marker et voila!

I have to say, I'm rather loving it and I'm surprised how well the glimmer paper coloured up! I shall definitely be using this technique alot! The tag is made using Pool Party card embossed with the Lacy Brocade folder and the sentiment is cut out using Word Window punch. 

Cardstock - Basic Black, Pool Party, Silver Glimmer paper
Stamps - All Dressed Up
Ink - Primrose Petals
Dies - Dress Up Framelits
Embossing Folder - Lacy Brocade
Punch - Word Window
Other - ribbon and gems from my stash

If you would like to order any of these brilliant items, or anything else from either of the catalogues, please do contact me

I also have the current catalogues available to buy - both Annual and Spring/Summer together for just £4.95 including postage, or free if you join one of my Stampers 6 clubs!


Thanks for looking...I have another 2 of these cards I shall be sharing this week too, and possibly more lol!

  16. Lizy this is absolutely beautiful! I love that you colored the Silver Glimmer Paper with a marker! I have sponged it before but never thought to use a marker. The color looks so rich and fabulous! I didn't think I "needed" this die, but I think you may have changed my mind with this beauty! Thanks for playing at ATSM this week. :)
