Layered Printing, Pretty Glittered Papers ... & win Martha Stewart Ribbons

A pretty little pink card for a pretty little baby girl - the perfect card to be totally girlie!

An image from 'Sweet Cheeks' and a card base I created by layering a paper design from 'Pretty Doodles' on top of a solid colour and adding glitter.

And if you make a card and personalise your paper, then you could win these ...






... pretty Martha Stewart Ribbons. They are her occasions ribbons - for Valentine's Day, Spring & Easter, Hallowe'en and Christmas. They're lovely to use and there are quite a lot of them. There are either 3 or 4 yards of every design in each pack. Plenty to play with.

If you'd like to win them, just make a card which includes a paper design you have personalised yourself in some way. Layer it with your printer, add glitter to it, add a pink centre to a daisy ... whatever you like to do.

Then leave a link to your card in the comments below & I'll select a random winner at the end of January : )

This is how I created mine ...


... & this is the end result of my printing.


I then added Glamour Dust to make my glittered card base.

Some detail shots ...





It took a while to do. But I think the glittered card base has transformed a very simple pink & cream card into something very pretty.

And I can't wait to see what you come up with : ) Have fun.



Love Liz xx

  7. OK, I have been away and played with your papers. I had so much fun mixing and matching different combos - I can't believe I never thought to double print them before.

  22. Hi Liz,
    You never fail to inspire!!! I love your new valentine papers and so decided to try and "change" one of those. I opened up tiny hearts in pretty pink into my photoshop elements package, and decided to play with the colour and lighting. Here's my creation! Hope the link works, it's m first attempt at this!!!
