Shining the Spotlight On...Amanda Korotkova! Part Deux


We are so fortunate to have Amanda Korotkova back with us for another post you are going to love!  If you missed learning more about Amanda and seeing her first beautiful project CLICK HERE!

Now, it's Amanda's time to sparkle and shine...


Hello! It's Amanda here and I'm back today with a new project. This time I decided to challenge myself with patterned paper because I have tons of beautiful paper but somehow never find the right moment to use it. Does it happen to you too? :)

I am absolutely in love with the new W&W cutaways. The moment I first saw them I knew I needed to make a shaker card with them. So here it is! I chose the beautiful "In a Word: Love cutaway" and built a sentiment with "The Big, the Bold and Extras" stamp set. 

As you probably know, the theme of the month is "Shades of spring", so I decided to use one of my favourites color combinations for this time of the year: pink, yellow and silver! To add the silver tones I heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and also added silver sequins, paper and thread. 

And that's all from me! It was such a great pleasure to be here with all of you. Thanks a lot for your support, your lovely comments and also big thanks to Shay and Julie for having me this month. 

Big hug!
