4CC: Pink is the new Orange!

Happy Thursday y'all!  It's time for another 4 Crafty Chicks challenge and this week's Hostess is Nance and her "twist" is PINK IS THE NEW ORANGE!!  For my card I've used a newer image from Graciellie Designs called STAY COZY.  I've also used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #292 for inspiration!

1 whole cardI had lots of fun with this!!!!!  First off I decided for some reason that this card needed some serious "shimmer" to go with all of that pink.  So I started off with making my own background paper.  The digital set comes with a tea bag image so I made it different sizes, mirrored it and rotated until my background paper.  But wait, there's more!!  lol  I printed this with our Laser printer, then ran it through my Laminator (on heat setting) with some Gold Foil.  I ran it through 3 times.  Just look at how perfect that detailing is!  And the shimmer is perfect!!!  This was so much fun and way easy! (these next 2 pics aren't very pretty because I took them at night on my work table).

1 shimmery tea bagsSo next up, I colored my mug all up with some Copics, and filled in that heart with some Gold Gilding Flakes. I'm in LOVE!  I didn't actually have Gold, so I just picked out some gold flakes from another container of mixed colors I had.  EEEKKKKK!!!  While I love the look of the gold foil, I love this different look with a little texture!

1 Cup with Gilding flakesFor the sentiment, I also printed it on the Laser Printer and then ran it through just like I did the tea bags.  This piece I only ran through twice (I did this piece first, and after seeing this one I decided to run the background piece a third time).  You can't really read it in this picture, but you can see that great shimmer!!

1 Glossy AccentsI am so in LOVE with the way this turned out!  Since this is a digi set, I am thinking of making something similar to this for my loft! 

That's it for me, be sure to check out what the rest of the Chicks have been up to,
