I was very excited then Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed those two stamp sets: Wetlands 1 #790, Wetlands 2 #791. They are amazing! I used both of them to make this simple card.

Stamping is done with StazOn Black Jet ink. After the scene was created I took bunch of Distress Inks and started to add colors. For the sky I used Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean. Actually water is also colored with same inks but main color was Salty Ocean while for the sky it was Seedless Preserves.

I didn't want to add any embellishment on this card. I just stamped the sentiment with Versamark in and heat embossed it with Gold Detail embossing powder. Matting layer is also inked with Versamark in and heat embossed with same powder to match the sentiment.

Those same stamp sets are also available as digital sets: Wetland 1 Digi and Wetland 2 Digi.

Materials used:
Stamp Credits: Wetlands 1 #790, Wetlands 2 #791;
Embossing Powders: Gold Detail (EP168);
Inks: StazOn (Jet Black), Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean), Versamark;
Cardstock: White;

Thank you fo the visit!

(*Tip: if you have difficulty with a particular link, try clicking on the Designer's blog title to send you to their Home page.)

I used digital version (DIGI797) from the new Deer Duo stamp set #797. Such a cute Christmas image. Well.. you could even use it on an anniversary card... why didn't I think of it sooner... I guess I was in a Christmas card mode... 

Image is colored with Promarkers. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops as an accents. Morning Dew was added to their noses, to the heart and the bells. Pearl White was added to her earrings and necklace. 

I made an old pattern paper a bit fancier by adding Crystal Ice glitter with Sakura Glue Pen to the hearts. After that I covered glittered hearts with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Holly Sprays are die cutted out of white cardstock. I colored the berries with red marker and added Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops on top. After it was dry, I inked everything with Peeled Paint and Pine Needles Distress Inks. Crystal Drops resist to the ink and result is a pretty green foliage with dimensional red berries. 

Edges of the matting layers are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Lator Gator Microfine Glitter. For the circular matting layer  I covered piece of white cardstock with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and used a circle die to die cut it out. It is also covered with Lator Gator glitter. Most of the times I use white cardstock for matting layers. I just color the sides of them with marker which match the glitter. This way no white is peeking from the sides.

Friendship Rose - Sparkle N Sprinkle

I had lots of fun to play with new Sparkle and Sprinkle Roses stamp set #784.

I started by making masks. For that I stamped the rose two times to the sticky notes paper and fussy cut them out. Then I took white cardstock panel, which was die cutted with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles die, and stamped the rose with
Versamark ink. I heat embossed it with White Detail EP. I placed the mask on top of rose and repeated those steps two more times. Entire panel was colored with  Distress Inks. On flowers I used Worn Lipstick. Leaves and background are inked with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. I added some water drops, let them sink to the paper a bit and then dried them with paper towel. This removed some color and added fun texture.

Sentiment is stamped with
Versamark ink to the vellum. It is heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder.

I sprinkled some Super Thick Gold EP to the pattern paper and melted it from underneath the paper with the heat tool. To decorate my card I cut Want 2 Scrap Chickenwire chipboard in pieces, covered them with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail EP

To add some more interest to the background I scrolled up one corner of the pattern paper and inked the card base with Mowed Lawn
Distress Ink

This pattern paper was originally with yellow dots. It didn't suit my needs so I took white gel pen and colored all the dots white. I also added few pearls made with
Pearl White Nuvo Crystal Drops

Materials used:
Stamp Credits: Roses #784;
Embossing Powders: White Detail (EP298), Gold Detail (EP168), Super Thick Gold (EP235);
Inks: Versamark, Distress Ink (Worn Lipstick, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron);
Dies: Spellbinders (Pierced Rectangles);
Cardstock: White, Vellum, Pattern Paper;
Embellishments: Want 2 Scrap chipboard (Chickenwire), Nuvo Crystal Drops (Pearl White);
Others: White Gel Pen;

Rose - Sparkle N Sprinkle

Here is one more card I made with new Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set called Roses #784.

I stamped one of the roses from the set to the white cardstock with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Promarkers. The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with
Mulberry Embossing Powder.
I used die from Spellbinders Labels Eighteen set to die cut the the image layer. Then I adhered it on top of the Sticker Paper and cut slightly larger shape with scissors. Rest of the sticky was covered with Golden Wheat glitter. I repeated same step one more time but covered the sticky with Hyacinth glitter.

Bottom part of the background layer is made out of 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and glitter. I adhered the tape to the white cardstock and used x-acto knife to cut the top layer of the tape to 5 mm strips. I removed every other strip of the protective layer from the tape and covered the tape with Hyacinth Glitter. Then I removed rest of the protective sheets and added Golden Wheat glitter to the tape. 

This ribbon flower is so easy to make thanks to Mon Ami Pull Ribbon. I used Gold/Gold 1,5". In center of the flower I added a 1/2" Glue Dots which was covered with Hyacinth Glitter.

Top part of the background is very simple. I just took a piece of white cardstock and dry embossed it between the Sizzix embossing folder named Lattice. To sparkle up the matting layer I adhered 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the cardstock and covered the tape with Hyacinth Glitter. Littlee pearls was made with Pearl White Nuvo Crystal Drops. I covered the pearls with Mulberry EP and after the pearls was dried I melted the embossing powder with heat tool.

This is it, one simple card made with Roses stamp set #784

Celebrate - Sparkle N Sprinkle

Today I want to share a simple circle step card I made for a Sparkle N Sprinkle with their new stamp set  Wild Rose #785


As said, I used Wild Rose stamp set #785 as a focal image. It is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with alcohol base markers.  Image is cut out with Spellbinders circle die. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Mulberry Embossing Powder. I draw all around the letters with White Gel Pen to make the sentiment pop out a bit better.
Matting layer is cut out from Sticker Paper with Tonic Trellis Circles die. I also trimmed it with scissors to make it into the shape I wanted. Sticker Paper is covered with Orchid Rose Glitter.


Little butterflies are die cut with Mini Dimensional Butterflies dies by Cheery Lynn Designs. Te are cut out from Sticker Paper and covered with Daisy Glitter. To the center of butterflies I added White Nuvo Crystal Drops.   


Card base and green pattern paper are die cut with Trellis Circles dies by Tonic. I smudged Versamark ink randomly over pattern paper, added Sparkle EP on top and heat embossed. After card base was scored  and folded I cut the pattern paper in pieces and adhered to the base layer. 


To embellish my card I used Diamond Mesh by Mon Ami Gabby and pieces of pearls from Couture Swirls set by Want 2 Scrap.
