Glitzy stamped cards with Laurie Schmidlin

Good morning!  I am so excited to be sharing a couple of my first Glitz Design cards!

I have this "thing" (well, more like an addiction) for beautiful paper. Patterned paper (especially vintage) makes my heart beat a little faster.  I would actually wallpaper our house with it if I thought my DH would let me get away with it!  Teehehee!  So, you can imagine my utter delight when I first laid eyes on Glitz Design paper!

After seeing the bright, fun, yet slightly vintage Hoopla collection, I tore right into it and made this birthday card for my daughter...
GD Hoopla BirthdayWM
I wanted the Hoopla Cake stamp to stand out a bit more, so I added a vellum layer to soften the patterned paper a bit.

My favorite thing about rub-ons is that you can add them over different layers without missing a word!  :-)

In this close-up, you can see the dimension I gave the cake (with the Circle Flourish frame and colorful rub-on flourish peeking out behind it).  Just for fun, I added some white Liquid Pearls to the edge of the cake stand.

My next project features papers and embellishments from the oh so lovely Love Nest collection!

I adore the detail in this oval Fancy Frame stamp!

I'm so glad you stopped by today!  ~Laurie
