CASology : Glisten

Hi there!

The new cue card at CASology this week is...

                                                          

With English not being my first language, I will be totally honest to admit I had to 'investigate' the word to make sure I get this right. I had an idea... because the lyrics of Winter Wonderland came to mind ..."in the lane... snow is glistening..."

But I guess snow is not the only thing that can GLISTEN...

verb
  1. 1.

    (of something wet or greasy) shine with a sparkling light.
    "his cheeks glistened with tears"

    synonyms:shine, sparkle, twinkle, glint, glitter, catch the light, glimmer, shimmer, glow, flicker, blink, wink, flash
noun
  1. 1.

    a sparkling light reflected from something wet.
    "there was a glisten of perspiration across her top lip"

So  considering the season of romance... this is what I created for your inspiration:


This one needs a close up :)


... kissable? I think so!


I used the free file for the week (Silhouette store - I think it's still free for the remainder of today - Design ID #172738)

I removed the little heart at the bottom, and replace it with glistening lips from Miss Kate cuttables.
After cutting the lips, I was contemplating if I should use Glossy accents, or Wink of Stella to make them 'glisten'. I find that Glossy accents can be problematic if applied on a large are, making tiny bubbles and/or hardening the card stock. So I gave the WoS a big squeeze to achieve the effect I was aiming for... and I LOVE the way it turned out!

I almost broke my 'mouse finger' trying to scroll down as fast as I could so that I could see what I knew was going to be yet another 'beyond clever' idea! And I was NOT disappointed!

Seriously girl...you rock! This is such a cool idea, put to paper in a fabulous way!!! Love the sparkle and LOVE the bold design!

Those exact words from "Winter Wonderland" were the first things that came to mind when I saw the cue card. So glad you looked it up, and gave us all a little tutorial on its meaning; it widens possibilities!! This is a fabulous card, Hannelie!! Love those shimmery, glisteny lips. Perfect for Valentine's Day!! Beautifully CAS, too. Bev

I know Iiked on Instagram but sometimes you need a bit more love! This is a fab interpretation of the word and perfect for the season. The lips sure do look kissable! I also am not good with glossy accents. So many attempts in the bin! Habe a good day x

I wouldn't guess that English isn't your first language. Now I have to wonder what IS your first language? You're amazing with these clean and simple cards! Glossy accents and I don't get along very well, but we try every now and then. The Wink of Stella is glistening beautifully!

Luscious lips, Hannelie ... so deliciously shimmery ... and definitely kissable! Brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

Bobby said...

And now we sing "On the blog lips are glistening." Great idea for the cue word, Hannelie. To tell the truth I knew what it meant and still looked it up to get some inspiration. Nothing so far. :(

Joyce said...

I really like your take on the word. And, such a fun and romantic card.

Rose said...

As always another clever masterpiece Hannelie! Love those glistening lips! Just gorgeous!

TK said...

Fabulous glisten! Sparkly lips are much more wonderful than a sweaty upper lip...

Petra Swart said...

Ja, daai woord sou ek ook moes gaan naslaan, vrou!!!!! En kyk nou net hoe oorspronklik het jy dit toe gebruik om 'n baie oulike Valentyn's kaartjie te maak!!!!!! Ek is mal oor hoe jy die sentiment gedoen het en laat my met 'n glimlag dink aan 'n vriendin se studente dogter wat aanmekaar 'like' tussen haar Afrikaans ingooi!!!!! So goed gedoen, vrou en tog te oulik en geskik vir die jonger geslag wat so opgewonde raak oor Valentyn's Dag!!!!!
Groete
