Sparkle and shine… in a simple way

Happy Monday?  (Yikes.)

Wanted to share some super simple cards with you.  Did a set for 2peas, and ended up adding a few more.

I used THIS same heart punch again to create a window in the front of the card.  I then added lots of gems and pearls (see below) around the edge of the window… adding a touch of Glossy Accents so they stay put.

These are the ones I did for 2peas.  I will be honest, I didn't do yellow because I "wanted to."  Was at a retreat and all I had with me were the sunshine mixed accents (a great mix of yellow and orange).  Wanted to do monochromatic – so it is what it is.  But I actually like how cheery they are, so I am glad I did it.  Oh, and one thing to check out – that card on the left – it is actually an orange notecard turned inside out.  Love the splash of color on the inside!

You may know how much I love butterflies.  THIS is a great one from Studio Calico.  Made in US – woohoo.  And I coated them in Glossy Accents so they shine.  Used black thread for the antennae – an idea from Shari Carroll.

And HERE are the lovely mixed accents from Hero I used on these.  Love that there are different shades, types (pearls and gems) and sizes all in one.  Self-adhesive.  There are lots of good colors.

Off to hang with the kids.  Night!
