Glittered Garden Silhouette

Yay!  I've been published (again).  I have to confess that I still get so excited when I see a card I made and my name printed in a magazine.  This card was published in a two page spread, including a tutorial on how it was made, in the Spring 2015 CardMaker magazine that was just released.

I started out by "painting with glitter" onto a piece of Sparkle N Sprinkle Super Adhesive Sheet die cut from the Ray of Sunshine cutting plate by Taylored Expressions.  The glitters used to create my sun were SNS's Cherry Lemonade, Lemonade,  Waterfall, and Rapture Blue.  The glitters were sprinkled onto the exposed adhesive and burnished into the adhesive starting with the lighter colors and progressing to the darker shades.

The Garden Silhouette rubber stamp was stamped onto a piece of SNS Embossable Clear Acetate with VersaMark and then heat set using Midnight Madness embossing powder.  I fussy cut around the image and adhered it in front of the rays of sun.  The edges of the mat behind the focal point were heat embossed with more Midnight Madness embossing powder for even more sparkle.

The ribbon is a strip of seam binding ribbon that I stained with Distress Stain (Squeezed Lemonade) and then I stamped my sentiment directly onto the ribbon with Staz-On ink.   I added a few flat backed pearls as a finishing touch.
