" Ranger Distress Inks Plus Perfect Pearls Equals..."

Good Morning Friends, Followers, Visitors and Viewers.
What a great day so far.  The sun is shining bright.  The birds are chirping as if it is spring time.  It is still cold but no snow as of yet.  Mardi Gras today!  It is still the celebration of Black History month and we are focusing on Hiram Rhodes Revels, Former United States Senator (google this person and read more about him).  Valentine Day is Sunday. We are praising God for our sister  who is celebrating 5 years of being cancer free . It is just so many great things going on. What about your area?  Anything exciting?

I used a collection of material based on a technique done by Jennifer McGuire.  See here.
Here are just the first set of supplies I used.  With each card I changed the distress ink and the perfect pearls to get the look you see in each one.

This first card:

  • Neenah white cardstock, green DCWV foil cardstock and vellum 
  • Recollection butterfly
  • distress inks you see in the picture along with the reddish perfect pearls
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder

This picture shows some of the material I used in my project.  I tape the white cardstock down and applied the distressed inks first.  Choosing which perfect pearl to used  is simply up to each individual.  

This second card:
  • Neenah white and brown Recollection cardstock; vellum
  • tea dye, blue, pink distress inks with purple perfect pearls
  • Recollection butterfly 
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder


This last card:
  • Neenah white cardstock and rust DCWV foil cardstock
  • blue, red and yellow distress inks with rust perfect pearls
  • Spellbinders embossing folder 
  • Recollection sticker



Check out Jennifer's video.  Get some distress inks plus perfect pearls and the results will be amazing.
I love the look of these cards. Don't you?

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
