I have lots of photos because I just can't get enough of this set of cards! The glitter from the Glitz Glitter Gel on the colored cardstock makes my heart so happy!
I used two different stencils for this set of cards - the Sunburst Stencil from Miss Ink Stamps and the Radiant Stencil from Honey Bee Stamps. I started with using each stencil on a piece of yellow cardstock, but I ended up using some dark pink cardstock as well. I wasn't sure how the Hello Yellow Glitz Glitter Gel would turn out on the yellow cardstock, but I ended up LOVING the tone on tone look! I wasn't going to waste the pink cardstock, so I made a set of two cards into a set of four!
I sprayed the back of the Miss Ink Stamps Sunburst Stencil with a coating of Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered the stencil onto a piece of cardstock. I started with the yellow cardstock and used a Stencil Pal to spread some Hello Yellow Rina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel over the top.
I am just OBSESSED with the Hello Yellow Glitz Glitter Gel on top of the yellow cardstock! It is such a perfect background. It's slightly subtle but packs a punch with the glitter! Don't get me wrong - I like the Hello Yellow Glitz Glitter Gel on the pink cardstock as well, but the yellow just grabs me!
For a little bit of a different look I decided to throw some Gina K Designs Gold Glitz Glitter Gel into the mix. I sprayed the back of the Honey Bee Stamps Radiant Stencil with Pixie Spray and spread the Gold Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil with a Stencil Pal onto a piece of yellow and pink cardstock.
All of the images for my cards are from the My Favorite Things Main Squeeze stamp set. I simply love lemons. Lemon planners, pens, leggings, real lemons haha! I've been hinting to my husband for so long that I want a lemon tree, but since I live in the northeast that probably wouldn't work too well.
I colored all of my images with the same Copic Markers. I did very simple blending so that I could quickly color all of the images I needed for my cards. I used Y15 and Y17 for the lighter portions of the lemons, Y35 and Y38 for the darker yellow, and YG17 and YG25 for the greenery.
Once I had all of my images cut and colored I arranged them at the center of each card. I didn't want to mess up the arrangements, so I used a piece of Purple Tape to pick up the arrangement all at once so that I could easily work with 5 or 6 die cut images as one piece. I used iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive to adhere the leaves and Gina K Designs White Foam Squares to give the lemons a bit of dimension.
I hope these simple Glitz Glitter Gel cards remind you of sunshine and have you thinking warm thoughts! See you soon!
