A Jennifer McGuire technique with Perfect Pearls.

Sometimes an old product put together with a relatively new product creates a wonderful new technique.  Jennifer McGuire demonstrated this recently when she dug out an old product Perfect Pearls and put it together with the relatively new product of layered stamps.  The resultant card is a one layer card that is easy to mail and simply stunning.


So far, I have made three cards all made with a single Perfect Pearls colour, but I really want to see what I can do with multiple colours of the Perfect Pearls in the near future.

Take a look.



Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge Oct 27

The  Make it Monday Challenge this week is pearlized blending.  At first I was stumped.  I couldn’t think of how I could use my Papertrey stamps and this technique in any way other than a moon as shown in the challenge sample.  Then the doorbell rang and the mailman solved my problem.  It was my new order from Papertrey Ink and included in this “Happy Mail” box was the stamp and die set Warmest Wishes.  I realized that I could blend and pearlize the mountains and the trees in the background and thus, presto ( Well OK not quite PRESTO as I did some airbrushing, masking, spraying and pico embellishing which took some time) and this card was created.



Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Warm Wishes Stamp and Die sets,  Perfect Pearls, Hero Arts Shadow Inks, Copic markers, Copic Air Brush System,  Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress, Imagine Crafts Shimmer Spritz. Simon Says Stamp top folding card base, Scotch foam tape and Scor tape.
