Layers of Glitter!

By | June 3, 2016

Have you noticed the fun Pineapple background stamp in the new Annual Catalog?  It’s so fun!  It caught my eye immediately.

I was scanning through Pinterest the other day and saw a great idea for a card using the Pineapple stamp.  It looked SO COOL … that I just had to try it for myself and share:)

To create my pineapple, I stamped it multiple times using different colors of ink.  For the background on the bottom, I used Delightful Dijon ink and the layers included Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight.  For the leaves, I used Old Olive as the background, and then the layers included Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz ink.

While time consuming, I cut the layers out of the coordinating colors with scissors,and adhered them with glue dots so they had a little dimension.

Afterwards, I used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to highlight random sections.  The Glitter Brush made the sections I painted slightly darker, thereby adding even more variation in color.

Before adhering the pineapple, I splattered a Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush over the entire card base.  To do this, simply hold the brush over the card base and tap it with a Bone Folder.

I made my label with the new Layering Squares Framelits.  These framelits are AWESOME!!!  I love the way the scallops barely show beyond the borders of the top layer.  Now you may notice that my label is not a square!?!  Well, I used a little trick to change the shape into a rectangle.  I plan on sharing this technique during my upcoming Stamp Club.

I’m not sure if I would take the time to make this card again, but it was fun to try it once.  I love the way it turned out!
