All Things Beautiful - Shimmer and bling

 Good day everyone! It's only six days before Christmas. 
I've been blog hopping yesterday and found out many are hosting challenges with shimmer and bling, so I decided to make a few cards just to practice on different styles and use my new stamps and craft materials. This time I made non-Christmas themed cards.

Wishing You All Things Beautiful

 I've been keeping my peacock stamp set for several months now. I bought it last year and used it only once or twice and I'm soooo glad I was able to use it again. Working at INKpressive Invitations shop , all my projects are for fast mass production that I don't have enough time to really create something like this.

I used glitter pens to color the peacock. At first I thought the colors were too harsh, but in the end, I think it worked pretty well. I added rhinestone beads to the tail. Isn't it fabulous?

Wishing You All Things Beautiful - Ingredients
DCWV printed paper
DCWV glitter cardstock
All About Scrapbooking embossed paper
Hero Arts Peacock stamp set - including the sentiment
glitter pens
Spellbinders Parisian border


My inspiration for my DREAM card is a KITTIE! Yes, Kittie Caracciolo is one fantastic card artist and her creations are so beautiful. You may check out her blog HERE

I recently bought new leaf dies and bird stamps but I still have no idea how to use them until last night. This card definitely inspired by Kittie's latest Christmas cards. I used the leaves as the nest. The bird on the left is stamped using Fiskars bird stamps. I then traced a bird on patterned paper and hand cut it to make a mirror image. I placed mounting tape on the birds to add depth.{smile!}
