Neon tie dye cards gift set

I made this set of cards as a gift for a high school graduate, in hopes she will enjoy using them to keep in touch with friends as they go off to different colleges.

In this picture I hope you can see a little better the Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist in Pearl, that I spritzed all over the front of each card.

These were all sponged with my new favorite ink, Hero Arts Neons.

The CTMH sentiments were all stamped using the VersaFine Black ink pad.

I used my birthday present from my sweet mom, the EK Success flower punch to punch from black cardstock.

Adding a Queen & Co. Twinkle Goosebumps bling to the center of each flower.

Layer all the card tops onto black cardstock.

Attach all those to a card base, and BaZiNgA! Bright and cheery note cards to write in and keep in touch with friends.

This is the package of Glimmer Screens. I had purchased these last year at our local Scrapbook Expo, and just now got around to trying them all. It's love! Although they market them for use with their glimmer mists, I like the bolder look of sponged ink, personally. I just used a small amount of Dawn dish soap on my palm and my fingertips to clean the ink off each screen when I was done.

Sponged inks over stencil cards

These are created using Tattered Angels Glimmer screens and various VersaFine inks sponged over the top.

I stamped CTMH sentiments using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Another new ink pad I am really loving. It makes a very crisp and bold impression.

I added some punched spiky circles behind coordinating colors of gems. 

This shot is to show the Glimmer Mist I sprayed over the finished sponged image. The camera flash catches the shimmer better. They are very pretty in the natural light. 

And for fun I thought I would share my sweet Thor, who wanted in on the photo shots. He's such a sweet helper.

Neon Petite Petals card

I was inspired to make these cards by this card on Pinterest. I recently ordered these stamps and coordinating punch from SU! and thought they would be perfect to recreate this card for myself. I still have my Hero Arts Neon stamp pads on my work station so I decided to use them also. 

The sentiments used for both of these cards are from the CTMH You Are My Happy set. I used my decades old Creative Memories wavy cutting board to cut the black cardstock. It was very dusty, because it had been so long since I last used it. Add some Queen & Co. rhinestones and they are all done.
