A Different Look And A Party For LumiinArte


The ribbon caused the whole thing. The lighting and the camera really doesn't do it justice. It is so much prettier in person. This is also my card for the Impression-Obsession blog for the week. I am going to list the supplies below, but if you would like to know how I did the punched border and the layering of the flower, shown below, you just need to jump over HERE.
Supplies:
Stamps: Impression-Obsession - Fiesta Flower H2330
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth cardstock, DCFW Designer Paper
Inks: Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Spellbinders Nestabilities Scallops Large, Fiskars Give It A Swirl Border Punch, Ribbon from Michaels, Bow Easy, Art Institute Glitter Mellow Yellow, Glitter Glue, Sharpie Yellow, Mark Richards 3 and 5MM Pearls.
Here is a quick synopsis if you don't have time. The image is 7 layers. The punched border was done first on other paper to get the measurements. The corners on the DP were punched from the same Fiskars border punch. The ribbon was done with the Bow Easy and I love it.


When you get back you can read about the change of mind by LuninArte, and boy am I glad!!! Here is what the owner sent us in an email on May 23.

From the Desk of Leslie Ohnstad: Thank you for your generosity, kind words of encouragement and prayers. The very unexpected out cry of orders in the past months "globally" has been extremely overwhelming and personally for me a truly humbling experience. The tiny staff of LuminArte Inc. was fully prepared to close at the end of February. Here it is almost the end of May and we are still working hard to fulfill all your requests. I have made the decision that we will not be closing our doors. Your testimonials have touched the hearts of those in our business that, in turn, has made it possible for us to continue to serve you. Thank you so much for caring enough to keep LuminArte's buzz going - positive and alive! Restructuring may take a little while, but it'll be well worth the wait. Soon we'll be featuring a vibrant new website showcasing new products and project ideas.You'll be hearing from us with updates on our fresh and exciting changes. Dreaming In Color, Leslie Blackburn Ohnstad, President/Inventor
