Still more Shimmer...and a guessing competition!

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaI've got a huge to-do list today, but I didn't want to miss out on showing you all a card, so here I am with another shimmery design. This time, though, I'm going to make you guys do some of the work! There will be a prize in it for the first person to get ALL THREE questions right!
You need to answer 3 questions:
1. What ribbon have I used?
2. What did I use to stamp and colour the flowers?
3. List all the cardstock I have used on this card

All materials used are Stampin' Up! (of course!)
I'll be back on Friday with the answers and the winner!

Edited to add: Demos and overseas Demos/non-Demos are welcome to enter. I haven't decided on the prize yet, but it will be something good, I promise!
And a little hint...the most obvious answers probably aren't right!


  1. Hello Marelle,
    Cardstock would be River Rock,Whisper White, pretty in pink, basic black.
    Ribbon is regal rose grosgrain.
    Flower stamping in basic black and coloured with aqua pen and inkpads

  2. Hi there, i'm new to stampin' up so I could be way off... (gorgeous card Marelle!!)

    1. What ribbon have I used?
    pretty in pink grosgrain

    2. What did I use to stamp and
    colour the flowers?

    basic black, aqua pens & inks

    3. Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Rose Red.

  4. Is the ribbon White Tafetta dyed?
    Is the stamp from Natural Beauty stamped in Stazon and coloured with ink pads and aquapainters?
    Is the cardstock used Rose Red, River Rock & Regal Rose with Brushed Silver for the main panel?

    That was a tough one

  5. Hi Marelle, this is my guess!
    What ribbon used: white grosgrain used with a re inker of colour cameo coral.

    What did you use to stamp and colour flower would be staz on, aqua painter, cameo coral watercolour crayons and river rock ink pad for leaves
    Cardstock Whisper White sponged, River Rock, Cameo Coral, Basic Black, Silver (Metalic pack)



  6. Ok here's my guess, I'm thingking...
    1. Ribbon is white grossgrain coloured with cameo coral reinker.
    2. Stamp set is Natural Beauty, black embossed and coloured with ink pads (cameo coral, certainly celery and bordering blue) and an aqua brush??
    3. Cardstock is: ruby red, certainly celery, cameo coral, basic black and whisper white.

    What a stunning card (as always)! You've inspired me to get out my Natural Beauty set and have a play.

  7. ooh tricky!...maybe the colours on my monitor are a bit whack but I would have guessed...

    1. What ribbon have I used?
    taffeta dyed regal rose

    2. What did I use to stamp and colour the flowers?
    StazOn, markers and blender pens

    3. List all the cardstock I have used on this card
    regal rose, certainly celery, pixie pink, basic black, brushed silver
    Did you silver emboss the edge of the pink?
    hhmmm intriguing good guessing game!

  8. actually on second thoughts perhaps its taffeta ribbon dyed Rose Red and Rose Red instead of Regal Rose cardstock

  9. hi,
    that was really tough but here are my answers:

    1. 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon dyed rose red
    2. stazon, going grey regal rose rose red and certainly celery water colour crayons, aqua painter
    3. regal rose, rose red, certainly celery, basic black and brushed sliver card stock

    anyway thanks for the inspiration,

  10. Fun challenge.
    I guess it is regal rose grosgrain ribbon;
    black stazon to stamp, inkpads and blender pen to colour;
    regal rose, river rock, pixie pink and brushed silver cardstock.
    I think the black "layer" is an outline of black marker???

  11. Great challenge.
    Regal rose grosgrain ribbon.
    Stamping in versamark, embossed black. Stamp pads & blender pens, pretty in pink,regal rose, green galore.
    Cardstock pretty in pink, gable green, brushed silver, black.
    Probably way off but fun trying!

  12. When I first saw this I thought, Wonder what she used for this. Then I noticed we need to guess!! Tricky Tricky! I am going right out on a limb to be different!

    1. What ribbon have I used?
    Pink ribbon from Sherbert Ribbon Originals (Just to be different)

    2. What did I use to stamp and
    colour the flowers?
    Stamped Black Stazon, Coloured with Crayons and blended with blender pens

    3. List all the cardstock I have used on this card?
    Brushed Silver, Basic Black, River Rock, Pink Passion, Regal Rose

    Thanks for a great challenge!

  13. Hi Marelle, thanks for letting demos enter. I'm not going for a prize, just like the challenge. What a great idea. Wish I could see the card in the "flesh" as my monitor colours are not a true representation. But a guess it is:

    1. White taffeta dyed with Rose Red re-inker

    2. For the main image, Staz-On (or Versamark and black embossing powder - can't see if the black image is flat or slightly raised in the photo), Markers, Blender Pen/s. I note the grey shadow around the image to make it pop. For the background flowers on Regal Rose card, I would guess Versamark.

    3. Brushed silver, Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose (edged with silver), Rose Red.

  14. Hi Marelle,
    Thought I'd give this a go!
    OK, Number One.
    I think ribbon used is White Grosgrain, dyed with Regal Rose re-inker and Silver re-inker
    Number Two.
    I think you have embossed image using black embossing powder, and used Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Basic Gray markers to colour blending with an Aqua Painter. Versa Mark for flowers in background.
    Number Three.
    Cardstock used- Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Brushed Silver, Pretty in Pink, Black.
    well, ther you go-even had my 5 year old commenting on colours. She thinks its 'gorgeous and beautiful"!!!!
    Keep up the great work Marelle!

  15. Hi Marelle, My answers to your questions are,
    1. Ribbon is white taffeta dyed with regal rose ink pad.

    2. Stamp pads are staz on black, and b/g flower stamp on regal rose in versa mark. Main image is coloured with aqua pens and watercolour crayons.

    3. Cardstock is regal rose, brushed silver, river rock, cameo coral, and basic black

  16. Hi Marelle - thought I would have a crack at this! Here goes! lol

    1. What ribbon have I used?
    White Grosgrain dyed with the Rose Red Reinker
    2. What did I use to stamp and colour the flowers?
    Black Stazon Ink, then you coloured using your aquapainter and the inks from Rose Red Regal, Rose and Mellow Moss, followed by out ouline of a light grey marker!
    3. List all the cardstock I have used on this card
    Ok Base Card is Rose Red, then you have a layer of Mellow Moss, then Regal Rose, then the flower is stamped on the brushed Silver Metallic cardstock, which is then layered onto black then onto mellow moss!

    How did I do - gosh that was a toughie! lol


  17. Firstly,another beautiful card Marelle! This is my guess at what you used:
    1. Ribbon- Taffeta White or Pretty in Pink died with Rose Red Reinker.
    2. Ink- Black Stazon, Watercolouring with Rose Red,Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, with some Watercolour Crayon in White.
    3.Card-Rose Red, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Basic Black and Brushed Silver.
    Thanks for making me think a bit LOL

  18. Hi Marelle, here are my guesses

    Ribbon - white tafetta dyed regal rose.
    used to stamp and colour - black stazon,versa mark,whisper white,basic black, markers and aqua painter, chalks may have been used to blend with a dauber at the edge of regal rose card sock.
    cardstocks - watercolour paper,river rock,basic black, regal rose.

    wow that was hard work, thanks for the challenge.


  19. Hi Marelle
    how are you? I love a challenge, my guess is:
    1.Taffeta ribbon dyed Regal Rose.
    2.Versamark Ink, Black Emb Powder,Aquapainter/paintbrush of some sort, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, River Rock,Going Gray, Silver Encore Ink(around the edges of the pink card) and Silver Reinker(for coloured in shimmer look)
    3. Whisper white, River Rock, Pretty in Pink and black cardstock.
    Hows that!!!

  20. Okay, I just have to try the challenge.

    1. I think you used white satin ribbon dyed with regal rose.
    2. Black stazon - rose red, regal rose, and river rock ink with a blender pen
    3. Rose red, regal rose, brushed silver, river rock, basic black, whisper white.

  21. Hi Marelle,

    Without seeing the card it is very tricky because there could be a few possibilities. I think to add to my second part of what was used to paint and colour the flower was white watercolour crayons that was added to the base of the image. For the leaves I think you might of used mellow moss not river rock ink. I am debating on the cardstock I believe it to be river rock but it could be mellow moss the sponging on the edges have thrown me off. I will still stick with river rock. I love the challenge liam

  22. Hi Marelle,
    here goes my guess!
    Ribbon: White taffeta dyed with regal rose ink
    Flower stamped with versamark onto brushed silver and embossed with black ep. Coloured with markers and aqua painter.
    Card: Rose Red, regal rose,mellow moss,basic black,brushed silver

  23. Louise again, was just having another look...did you sponge the edges of the regal rose with silver ink?

  24. Hi Marelle
    I'll have a go while my little one is asleep.
    RIBBON - White taffeta dyed with Rose Red inker.
    FLOWER STAMPING - Black Stazon with Blender Pens & Watercolour Wonder Crayons of Certainly Celery & Rose Red then an outline of gray marker surrounding the image.
    CARDSTOCK - Rose Red as base then Certainly Celery which has been sponged on the edges with Certainly Celery ink. Then Regal Rose textured CS with has been sponged with regal rose & then edged with silver ink. Certainly Celery CS again sponged with same. Then finally the brushed silver card with the image on it.
    Its really quite hard to break that down.
    Thanks for the challenge.

  25. Hi Marelle, the only thing different that I can think of is that the main image is stamped in versa mark and embossed blak and then coloured with markers and blended with an aqua painter. The BG is still stamped in versa mark
