After I picked the image I noticed that I don’t have any silver embossing powder. I wonder what happened to that? It’s already on my order list for next month. Good thing I had ordered the Shimmery Paint from the Holiday Mini catalog. I applied that to the stamp from Autumn Days with a foam brush and stamped it on 3 1/2″ square of Ballet Blue cardstock.
The square was layered on a slightly bigger piece of Scallop Square that had been cut with Square Nestabilities out of Brushed Silver Cardstock. The edges were paper pierced. That seemed a little flat so I added tiny Crystal Twinkles over some of the image.
The card base was cut with the Scallop Square Big Shot Die out of Brushed Silver cardstock. It was layered first with a 3 3/4″ square of Ballet Blue, then a with a 1/4″ smaller piece of Whisper White. The edges were again paper pierced. I added a ribbon slit on the lower left hand side of the main image and tied Organza Ribbon through it.
The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. It was stamped in Basic Gray on Whisper White. It was punched out with the small oval punch, taped on Brushed Silver cardstock and hand-cut (I don’t like to layer a small oval punch-out over a big oval punch-out. The big one is too big for layering for my taste.). The layers were adhered to the focal point layers and a row of Crystal Twinkles were added under the sentiment.
For the inside of the card I layered another 3 3/4″ Ballet Blue square with a 1/4″ smaller Whisper White square. I added a few more branches in second and third generation Basic Gray and paper pierced a border around it.

Add a small mount of Shimmery Paint on a disposable piece of plastic ( I used clear envelope).
Dab your foam brush in your paint and brush on to your stamp.
Stamp your image on to your cardstock.
Continue with steps 1-3 if necessary.
Not really part of this techique, but I wanted to show off how cute those Crystal Twinkles are. I added Glue with the Quickie Glue pen and dropped the Twinkles on top of the glue.
