Cards Orlando Show 2

Hi All,

This is a continuation of the stamping fun I had in Orlando. We met a lady that brought a magazine that is available in the UK. They did a full feature on our Mimi stamps. It was amazing.

It was in the January 2009 issue and the article was called Mimi's Magical Christmas.

This card was using the new Filigree stamps. I stamped the Brilliance Platinum pad on the Vellum paper on the Vellum paper. Though you can't see it, I stamped the filigree stamp in Versa Magic Aloe Vera on the white card base. I used the Pearlescent paper for the punch scallop "outline" and stamped the circle birthday and double circle stamp in the same Aloe Vera. I finished the card with the sheer ribbon. A very soft and elegant look.

Here is the box template in blue and navy. I stamped the background with the Versa Magic Sea Breeze stamp. the circle stamps were stamped in the Versa Fine Majestic Blue. I added glitter using the 3D Lacquer and Blue Ice Sparkletts glitter.

I did another version of this card before. I used the Brilliance Platinum on Vellum paper for the subtle look. I lined the vellum with the black cardstock for contrast. Very eye catching and dramatic.

There's more to come. Check back soon.
