This month for stamp club, we were to make a card (or other project) with the theme of Glitter/Glamour-Shine/Shimmer. I used shimmery card stocks for my card. Started with a red shimmery card base and layered on light pink shimmer card stock over plain black paper, then topped with a pink floral shimmer card stock (used black India ink to color the edges) and added shiny red rhinestones. Stamped sentiment with black India Ink.

First, coated the playing card with Gesso and let it dry. Then covered the surface with a purple Distress Paint and let dry.
Stamped circle of "sevens" and 7 with black India Ink, then stamped a map portion with a purple dye ink and cut out. Wrote "Wonders of the world" on card stock and cut out and added to the APC. Punched a decorative purple card stock with a heart shaped punch. Used a white Gel pen to add a white border to the hearts. Then wrote out each of the 7 Wonders out on the hearts and added to the APC.

For stamp club, we were to make a card using die cuts. I decided to make the die cut the main feature. Used a frame die to cut gold metallic paper and glued to a white card front. Then added 3 small white paper flowers with "gold" beads.

We are doing an Altered Playing Card (APC) Swap on ArtVentures Group. The theme is Numbers, for August the number is Six.
First, coated the playing card with white gesso and let it dry. Then covered with red Distress paint and let it dry.
Next, added a red Distress Stain over the Distress paint and let dry.
Then dabbled gold Distress Stickles over the APC, and let dry.
Used black India Ink to stamp the word "six" on card stock and glue onto two of the APC corners. Printed out a quote by Oscar Wilde to add on. Also printed out six vintage corset images to add.
"Deep Six Corsets"
