ECD May Design Team Challenge - Sparkly Split Negative Card

Hi Everyone!
It's the end of the month and that means it's time to share my card for the Elizabeth Craft Designs May Designer Team Challenge- flat cards. I've created a split negative card using lots of sparkly glitter and the positive and negative pieces of the Flower Labels 1 Peel- offs. I have to apologize- I have been down with the stomach flu and wasn't able to do a photo tutorial for you but I will walk you through the instructions and supplies. Hope you  enjoy the card!
1. Fold a white 4 1/4 x 11 cardstock in half to form an A2 size card base. Cut a white piece to 4 x 5 1/4. Cover with double sided adhesive. Remove the release sheet and cut it in half with a paper trimmer. Place one half of the release sheet on the tape and sprinkle Basic Black Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish well before removing the release sheet.  Glitter the other side with Antique Silver Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess and polish well to set.
2. Apply double sided adhesive to a piece of white cardstock big enough for the Peel- Off and another big enough for the negative. Apply the Peel-Off to the release sheet sticky side up and place the adhesive covered cardstock over it to transfer the Peel-Off. Glitter with Antique Silver and polish. Trim closely.
3 Glitter the remaining adhesive covered cardstock with Antique Silver. Using a transfer sheet, transfer the negative pieces of the Peel -Off to the glittered piece. Trim out leaving a slight edge.
4. Place both glittered pieces on top of each other, exactly lined up and cut in half with a paper trimmer. Match up one of each side, opposite the color of the base card below-for your focal image. This gives you the split negative look.Adhere to a white base, trimmed closely but leaving a slight edge.
5. Diecut white cardstock using the smallest of the Katie Label accessory dies. Stamp sentiment in black. Add Glitter Border Strips to sentiment and on card front down middle and both sides. Add split negative piece and sentiment on pop dots to complete.

Hello Sunshine

Hello everyone!
Just a quick post today to share this card that I designed for my DistINKtive cards class last month at Scrapp'n Savvy.  I loved using the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine stamp/diecut set and paper line. It was a fun card to make! One thing my students enjoyed learning was on the big yellow sentiment. We embossed it with white embossing powder and then went back with red ink and sponged it over the middle to make the word "happy" really pop. You then rub any residual ink off the embossing with a wet wipe and it looks fabulous!

Flowers in Oval in Color!

Hi Everyone!
Just  quick post today to share one of the cards I made for my DistINKtive Card class I taught yesterday at Scrapp'n Savvy. Everyone had a great time and made beautiful cards! The theme was cards with flowers so I decided to redo the card I designed for the ECD white on white DT challenge and do it with color. I love how it turned out!  I'll be sharing some of the other cards soon. Hope you enjoy!
