Border Buddy Card Sketch - BB004
Handmade Christmas Cards in the Mail!

As Quick as a WInk...Wink of Stella that is!

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday and it's Alison here this week with a preview of an awesome new product coming in the Occasions Catalogue!  it's called Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and it is fabulous.  It's a glitter pen that adds sparkle to your stamped images.

Here's how it works:

1. Stamp your image (an outline image works great)

2. Colour in the image using any medium you wish

3. Use the Wink of Stella pen over the top of the coloured parts and you have instant glitter accents!  They just shimmer!

4. Voila - easy peasy it's done!




This is a card I made using the new stamp set Birthday Blooms from the Occasions catalogue (launches on January 5!) and I simply stamped the image and embossed in silver, watercoloured it with an Aqua Painter and inks and then went over the petals with the Wink of Stella Glimmer Brush pen.  It takes a nice image and just makes it POP right off the page!




I wish I could "show" you how much this glimmers in the light because it is stunning!


  Birthday Blooms Stain Glass


Here's another card using the same new stamp set - Birthday Blooms - with the Stained Glass Technique.  To make this card you will:

1. Stamp your image on Vellum with Versamark and apply White Embossing Powder.  Heat set.

2. Turn the image over and working from the back add colour using Stampin' Write Markers.  Use strong colours as they show through the    vellum better.

3. Add the shimmer with the Wink of Stella Glimmer Brush pen.

Here's a close up of the flowers and I think I caught the glimmer look better in this example.

Can you see the "sparkle" on the petals?  The Wink of Stella Glimmer Brush comes in both Gold and Clear.  I used the clear brush in both of today's examples.
