Chandelier Card

Welcome to my new blog site!  This is my first new post from the new location – I’m so glad you found me!

I’ve had this gorgeous, shimmery, heavy-duty paper from Amuse for a year because I was saving it for the right card.  Paper like this is the only exception I have for my “no wallpaper” policy.  Someday I think it would be fun to have a powder room with girly wallpaper like this with a chandelier or a chandelier applique on the wall.

I’ve also had this beautiful chandelier silhouette stamp from Impress Rubber Stamps for a year and finally used THAT as well!  I stamped it onto the paper and applied fine detail black embossing powder and heat-set it to make it shiny. Then I added some crystals, used my Fiskars scalloped punch, some stretchy grey ribbon I bought at Fabric Depot in Oregon last year, and a tag I attached with my new Memory Makers tag curler.  This is the result of my efforts:

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
