Sue here today with some inlaid die cutting and using Liquid Pearls in an unexpected way!

P1310173c

I have quite a few bottles of Liquid Pearls sitting on my craft shelf  just waiting to be used and they come in such pretty colours. I wanted to somehow incorporate the pretty pearly look of them onto my card so I took white card stock, squeezed on Liquid Pearls and used a piece of card board to squeegee the Liquid Pearls across the card stock. I let this dry (it dries in a few minutes) and ran the pearl papers with my dies through my die cutting machine.

Love the pretty sheen of these pearlized papers! The camera just can't pick up the true beauty of how they look.

I took the Loopy Stem and Fancy Thanks dies and die cut the white panel with them so I could inlay the matching die cuts for a smooth finish.

The Devyn Butterfly Trio and Emelia Butterfly Trio weren't inlaid, I wanted them to have some dimension.

I hope you like the Liquid Pearls idea! Thanks for visiting with me today!
