Design It Monday ~ Yay, Gold Threads!

Hi friends! We hope you’re enjoying all of the inspiration using the new Happy Art Stamp Set. I have a fun idea to share today using the scribbles from the set to mimic gold metallic threads.16 0320 0002I began with a white panel, Versa Mark ink, the scribbles stamp and gold embossing powder. Next came the stamped arrows. My sentiment was added to a patterned paper that had been stamped with the dashed rectangle from the Love Coupon Stamp Set. I trimmed it as close as possible! This was popped up with foam tape over the scribbles.

16 0320 0001Don’t they look like the loops of gold metallic threads that so many card makers are adding to their cards!  This is a quick and easy way to achieve that same look. Some coordinating patterned paper with a bit of bling and you’re good to go!

  1. Lisa! I LOVE the idea of making those scribbles look like thread!! YES! It looks just like that, and I’m so helpless when it comes to trying to arrange thread behind an image that I just give up and don’t do it. This does the work for you! YAY! (Just like the card says!) I also adore the color ink you used on your project…I need to know what it is! It’s beautiful with white and gold!

  2. Oh wow–you’re so clever, Lisa! Wonderful way to get the gold thread look–the “messing” with it is already done! Beautiful card–love the pp you used!

  3. I love this card!! I have been seeing this “messy” set all over Blogland but leave it to you to make is soft and sweet!! Simply delightful!!

  4. I’m with the rest of the group … LOve those scribbles! and so much simpler to do than trying to perfect those threads! Fabulous card, my sweet friend! [I’m still smiling from our visit!!!]
