Simon Monday: Somethin' New

Here is this fabulous card!:

The challenge was "Something New" over at Simon Says Stamp on Mondays.  I bought the sequin strand and stencil over xmas.  And I received the paper over xmas.  Newness.  Newness everywhere!

Supplies and notes:
  • Gold sequin strand from Target dollar bins... my latest-favoritest.
  • The flags were cut from some vellum that I'd stamped with a carved pencil eraser dipped into Liquid leaf last year. I glittered the edges with Distress Glitter in Antique Linen (my fave glitter ever)
  • The Catrina stamp set is MY 100% FAVE stamp set ever from Invoke.  I think it's called the Calavera Catrina Paper Doll... or something like that.  I got it years ago from a shop in Berkeley, CA, that is now closed :(  I stamped her with MementoLuxe, double-tapped.  I stamped her top onto a nice pale pink from K & Company and popped it up.  I fancied-up her hat with Liquid Pearls in Rose Gold... that is also pretty new. I ordered it during The Funkie Junkie Boutique's Black Friday sale. 
    • I love what the Catrina stands for-- read about it HERE, and see what it says to you.
  • The stencil in the background is Heidi Swapp.  I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink with a taddy-bit of water, then sprayed with Perfect Pearls in gold
  • The paper came in a DCWV stack I received for xmas
I will add an appropriate sentiment when the need arises-- and until then, I think I will set this up for my own personal inspiration... I love the colors and the feel of this. 


  1. How beautiful. A kind of vintage or shabby chic style with a touch of bling, looking so nice!

  2. I adore the touch of gold! Beautiful vintage card! Thanks for joining us this week on Simon Says Stamp MOnday Challenge Blog! Barbarayaya

  3. I love the dimension you created by puffing out the blouse. The banner is fabulous and these sequins make me so jealous! ;0 <3
