Shimmer Me This, Stampers

Oh my. Can you believe it is time for another round of amuse-bouche? This release is full of some of the most beautiful product, too. Not only are there new stamps, but you'll also find papers and some other fun embellishments. It is so hard having this information and having to wait to share with you!





You are going to love these new shimmer papers from A Muse. The colors are spectacular and the papers are amazing. I just cannot get over how pretty this cardstock is. I've been making the paper into 4-bar sized notecards and using scraps for layers, not wanting to waste any bit of it.

For this card, though, it is just a simple card base (the french roast layer is the regular cardstock). Since the leaf image was solid, I decided to pair it with the solid pumpkin image. I extended the flourish on the other side of the pumpkin by masking it and stamping the flourish only. Then, just for kicks, I added some pearls to the card. You are not going to believe these pearls; so pretty and in three sizes. I want to keep them all, but I know the adding these to cards will be my new favorite thing.

Enjoy this round of amuse-bouche and check back tomorrow!
