Winter Stream with a cat

I'm glad that my darling Chow Chow won't understand anything about the cards. Otherwise he would think I'm cruel to him.  A cat can enjoy this wonderful winter scene and he have to tolerate the hot summer sun. He just keeps looking me with the face saying: "Please, make the sun go away!" I'm willing to buy as many A/C as he wants but sun is good :)
Sparkle N Sprinkle released a fabulous winter stamp for everyone who love winter - Winter Stream Stamp Set #601. It's gorgeous! I used it with another new stamp set named Feline Humor Stamp Set #631.


Images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with alcohol base markers. Icicles are re-colored with Versamarker Pen and heat embossed with Sparkle EP. Clear EP makes them shine like a real things and a bit of the glitter gives some extra sparkle.


The snow hills are all re-colored with Sakura Glue pen and I added Crystal Ice Glitter on top. Snow caps on the trees and on the rocks are covered with Dimensional Glue  and also covered with Crystal Ice Glitter. I love the dimension on it. I added some more glue with Sakura Glue Pen to the water and covered it with
Waterfall Glitter.


This beautiful cat is covered with Sakura Glue Pen and  Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft. He is popped up with a foam tape. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark Ink to the Vellum and it's heat embossed with Black Detail EP. 


The background of this card is heat embossed with most fabulous EP for winter projects -  Blue Silver EP. It's so easy to make stunning backgrounds with it - just ink the CS with Versamark ink, add EP and heat emboss.
The snowflake border is cut from the Sticker Paper and covered with Twinkling Clouds SS.

Fanciful Flourish die cut is inked with Versamark ink and it's heat embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Willow Embossing Powder. 


I wish I could have take a photo from the inside of the card but camera batteries died and I had to cave the card away immediately. You can see a bit of it on following photo. I made my own stamp with Cheery Lynn  Fanciful Flourish die and rubber foam (fun foam). I used it to stamp the background with Versamark ink and then I covered the stamping with Sparkle N Sprinkle - Spring Willow Embossing Powder but I didn't heat emboss. I brushed the EP away. The lovely shimmering powder inside the EP stick to the Versamark.

I used adorable Under the Mistletoe Stamp Set #556 to make a fun shaker tag.
Front of the shaker is cut from the Embossable Clear Acetate. I inked the edges with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Holiday Blue embossing powder. Then the shaker tag was finished I had some foam tape showing through the Acetate. I hide it with Dimensional Glue and Laser Blue glitter. This color is so pretty, I just had to add other places too.


Penguin is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and it's colored with Promarkers. His eyes, peak and berries was "colored" over with Versamarker Pen and heat embossed with Clear Detail embossing powder. Fur part on his outfit is covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft.


I love how this ice cube turned out. It was covered with Versamarker Pen and heat embossed with Sparkle embossing powder. To the water I added  Sakura Glue Pen and Waterfall glitter on top.


I stamped the sentiment to the tag shape white cardstock with StazOn –Jet Black ink. Then I used snowflakes from Snow One Like You Stamp Set and stamped them with Versamark Ink all over the tag.  Snowflakes was heat embossed with Sparkle embossing powder. After that I inked the tag with Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Inks.


Inside of the shaker are Micro Beads. I added some embossing powder splatters on top of the Embossable Clear Acetate.


Back side of the tag is inked with Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks. To hide the Foam Tape that peeks out from the sides I adhered white fuzzy yarn all around and tied it to the knot. I also put three red pearls to hang from the yarn ends.


Full directions of how I made this tag is in SNS Gallery here.
Your next stop is very talented Emmy. Don't forget to leave a comment to all the blogs. One of you will win all the new stamp sets.

Believe

Today I want to share with you a shaped shaker card. I used lovely Mermaid Kisses Stamp Set #529 to make it. 
Mermaid is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to the white cardstock. She is colored with Promarkers. I added some Sakura Glue Pen to her body and sprinkled Sunny Daze glitter on top.Waterfall glitter was added to the water with Sakura Glue Pen also.


Background in inside of the shaker is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and images are colored with Promarkers. Then I applied 2 ½" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape all over the background and rubbed Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter on to the tape. 
I added some embossing powder splatters on top of the Embossable Clear Acetate. There is a tutorial hot to make them in here.

Little stars inside of the shaker are left overs from the star circle frame. I colored stars with markers, applied Brushable Glue to one side of the stars and covered pink stars with Bubble Gum glitter and yellow stars with Evening Glow glitter.
I used Fun Foam to make a frame for shaker pieces. It's much easier then to use foam tape. 


Frame is covered with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Hit The Beach embossing powder. The inner circle of the frame is covered with Versamarker Pen and heat embossed with Skylight embossing powder.

Matchbox, card and envelope

Hello, Summer! Calender says it's summer but I can't see it by looking outside. It's rainy and cold and we had snow on Tuesday. There is something seriously wrong with Weatherman. Oh well... I'll better show you a simple rainy day project.


The box is made with 6 x 6 " pattern paper and Envelope Punch board. It's really fun and easy box. I followed the tutorial from here. For decorations I used leftovers from previous project. 


Rectangle piece of pattern paper was covered with 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape. After removing the protective sheet I placed a leftover protective sheet sprig shape die cut on top to act as a mask. Tape was covered with Crystal Ice Glitter. Then I removed the sprig and covered rest of the tape with Sea Spray Glitter. Edges of the pattern paper was covered with SNS Dimensional Glue and I sprinkled Sea Spray Glitter on top.


For the card I placed some Tear-ific Tape directly to the card base and adhered a leftover die-cut piece of paper covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" on top. Sticky part was covered with  with Sea Spray Glitter. Then I removed protective sheet around the sprig cut-out and covered it with Crystal Ice Glitter. 


I also made an envelope for a card. Just because I wanted to play with an Envelope Punch Board :)It is decorated with 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape, Crystal Ice Glitter, SNS Dimensional Glue and Sea Spray Glitter

Suitcase

Hello my friends! Today I'll share with you a 3D project. I made a cardstock suitcase to hold six small SNS glitter and/or embossing powder jars. I'm pleased how it turned out. I kept this suitcase on my desk almost three  weeks before I was willing to send it away.


Crackle Background Stamp, Copper Flame and Caramel embossing powders are wonderful to mimic a look of a vintage suitcase.


To achieve different look with same stamp and embossing powders you just have to change the order of using the embossing powders. In front of the suitcase I stamped the Crackle Background with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Caramel EP. Then I sprinkled some Copper Flame EP on top and heat embossed from underneath the cardstock. For the back side of the suitcase I first added Copper Flame EP and heat embossed it, then I stamped the Crackle Background with Versamark ink and heat embossed with  Caramel EP. Caramel EP has lovely shimmer in it. Copper Flame EP will pick it up also and it changes it's color slightly.


For the glittered leaves I adhered strip of 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" to the green cardstock and cut with die from  Spellbinder Sprigs set two leaves. After removing the protective sheet from the leaves I covered the sticky part with Luau Green Microfine Glitter.

http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?products_id=5944

Blue "leather" straps are cut from white cardstock. After piercing the holes to the both edges I covered straps with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Skylight EP. I also added EP to one end of the other side of the strap.

http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?products_id=1121

I used two 5 x 0,5 cm strips to make a rectangles to hold the box closed. These strips are heat embossed with Caramel EP.
Suitcase handles are cut with dies from Spellbinder Label Four set. They are inked with Versamark ink from both sides and heat embossed with Copper Flame EP. I also added second coat of EP to give the handles more dimension. 

http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?products_id=7277

There is no old and well traveled suitcase without stickers. I made some with stamps Travel Mixed Media Stamp Set. I used the Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp all the images from the set to the white cardstock. The map was inked slightly with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and Memento Pear Tart. From the map I cut three ovals with smallest die from Spellbinder Floral Ovals set.  Postal stamps are inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink and cut out with scissors.


All brads are covered with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Caramel EP. Brads are attached to the box before assembling the boxes. It would be much easier to attach brads only to the straps but I wanted to be sure that the suitcase is sturdy and won't fall apart.

http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?cPath=22_56&products_id=1093

After adhering the "Stickers" I added the Glossy Accents to the oval shapes. This way they look like a real stickers.


There are hidden magnets adhered to the boxes before assembling them. Take a look to the template to see where they are.


I used second smallest die from Spellbinders Label Four set to make the hinges out of brown cadrstack to the inside of the suitcase. 


Boxes are made from 2 sheets of A4 cardstocks. With them I was able to make a box that fits 6 SNS embossing or glitter jars if you place 3 of them up-side down.


Flowers are cut with Spellbinder Bloom Four dies out of white cardstock. I inked them with  - Dusty Concord Distress Ink and Memento - Summer Sky. After shaping them with round stylus and and assembling I added a white pearl to the center of each flower.



You can see the full instructions how I made this suitcase in the SNS Gallery here. Also take a look to the template  to understand better how this suitcase is made.
