I made this bookmark on glossy cardstock using 3-D Crystal Lacquer in primary colors.

I used a lovely botanical paper and layered some other interesting papers, as well. The stamp was stamped in teal ink.

This  is a line from a poem by Lord Byron:

"She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies ;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to the tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies..."

The interesting thing about this card is that it is 3-dimensional inside, with stars hanging down. The stars on the front are affixed with PopDots. You can't tell, but the stamp was stamped with iridescent embossing powder, which looks lovely against the dark blue card.

This lovely fan was made using my fan template. I used paper doilies cut and glued to plain white cardstock. I then used a watercolor brush to apply Duo Blue-Green Pearl-Ex powder. I added a tassel and an organza bow with carved cinnabar heart beads. Amazingly simple, simply elegant!
