Neon Love

Friday, November 30, 2012

Good Morning! I recently came across neon bling and was in a hurry to use them. I pulled together additional neon goodies that I had on hand and this great stamp set from Market Street Stamps to create the card below: 

I first stamped a small area of a dots background stamp on the base of the card in light brown ink. American Crafts cardstock was ripped along one edge to create a faux washi tape look. The blue strip is glitter tape, the greatest invention American Crafts has created. The glitter on their tapes and papers seem fused to the paper, which means no left over glitter specs on your desk, computer, face, and dog! I cut a triangle out of one end of the tape and easily stuck it onto my card base.

This stamp set comes with two styles of thought bubbles, lots of arrows, and all sorts of sentiments. It's perfect for scrapbooking and card making. I chose the more traditional bubble, added a sentiment in the middle, cut out the image, and adhered it to the card base with foam risers. Lastly I added a few arrows and the bling that inspired the whole card! I went ahead and made a few different cards using the same techniques, taking advantage of the different sayings the set had to offer. Here's a look at one of the variations:
