Tonight I have four cards to share using You Shine, one of our new à la modes sets.

On my first card, I used lots of fun, bright colors, coloring with Copics and using the smallest of the Decorative Circle Tags for my sentiment.  Along the bottom I used a strip of Double Scallop Border.

It’s  a bit hard to see in the photo, but I colored over all the lights and the star in her hair with a clear glaze pen.

On the inside, I used a sentiment from our second new à la modes set, Sparkling Season.

Here, I combined You Shine with Accent It Flags and Tags, using numbers from Calendar Components to create the date.  A tiny red brad separates the numbers.  Base cardstock is Jelly Bean Green.

I really like the date tag.  :)

I finished the inside simply with just a sentiment, also from Sparkling Season.

On this one, I went for a lighter/softer feel.  I used Berrylicious cardstock, X-Press It Blending Card, Let It Snowflake and new Snow Drifts Die-namics.  To help define the edges, I lightly sponged each drift using Memento Teal Zeal.

After coloring with Copics, I colored over the lights with a clear Sakura glaze pen.  (The color in the photo is a little off as I had to take the “glittery” photos in a different spot.  I couldn’t seem to correct this one for some reason.)

On the inside, I adhered a few more snowflakes using tiny silver brads.

My last card is a bit more clean and simple.  After stamping and coloring, I stamped a second image, coloring only the lights.  I cut out a small handful of the lights, sketched in a loopy string across the top and adhered the lights, securing only the top edges so the bottoms lift slightly off the paper.

I colored over the lights, again with the clear glaze pen.

On the inside, I stamped a silhouette of the image as well as “Merry” from Sparkling Season.
