shimmery cards for... *~ MOM ~*

I worked on these cards last night and the night before.. and I "LOVE" how they turned out.  The paper is really shimmery and oohhhhh sooo pretty in person.   My favorite color combo is the red, I really like the purple as well.

**oops.. I just noticed that I missed putting a purple card in the picture above.. but put two orange cards in there...  the purple ones are sooooo pretty too.

I ended up with 55 cards in all and have lots more of the shimmery paper, so I think I will make some more sometime soon.. changing up the sentiment.  I used up every mini black brad I had, along with all the flush black brads as well.. time to restock!    I have owned the StazOn White ink pad w/refill for many years.. and have never used it until two days ago.. I am kicking myself for not using it before now,,, that stuff is great, stamps beautifully and dries very quickly.

Supplies used:
stamps: Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms, Verve Because of You (sentiment)
ink: Stazon White (this stuff is AWESOME!!)
card stock: White #100 cover, Shimmery paper from The Paper Factory (scored at a Tuesday Morning a while back in all sorts of colors), Recollections Black
accessories:   Oval and Scallop Oval punches, 5/8 White Satin Ribbon (used entire roll.. oh my!), 3/8" Black ribbon on the cards that were left when the white ran out, mini black and white brads, glue dot and Dimensionals!!!

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

Beautiful Pam! Interesting that you love the Stazon White - I am always disappointed that it isn't as bright as the Stampin' Up! Craft White or embossed white. Is it just me?

Thanks Lisa... I have a SU Craft White pad and I don't think I've ever used it and I am embarrased to say that I own all the SU Craft pads and hardly ever used them. Funny thing.. I bought them so that I could emboss in clear using the craft ink color.. haha. I liked the muted white color I got with the Stazon pad against the shimmery paper. blessings ~ Pam
