It is time for the first challenge in the 2016 at the Stamping Sensation. We start with nice and easy. The challenge theme is: Anything goes with a die (and stamping as a focal element). I made a shaker Birthday card.
We are pleased to welcome Tonic Studios back as this months sponsor and what a fabulous prize they are offering to one very lucky winner. The prize is the full range of their new colours of Nuvo Crystal drops and also pots of matching glitters.
Now, back to my card... Flowers from Sparkle N Sprinkle Beautiful Friendship stamp set are stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and they are colored with Promarkers. I cut them out with scissors and popped two of them up with foam tape. I added some Crystal Stickles to the flower centers.
Butterflies are die cut with dies from Cheery Lynn Design Mini Dimensional Butterflies set. They are inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Firefly Embossing powder. This EP actually glows in the dark. I added tiny pearl to each butterfly.
The decorative layer behind the flowers is die cut out of white cardstock with Nellie's Multi Frames Round Lily die. I inked it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.
The word "õnne" (in English: happiness) is die cut with dies from MemoryBox Classic Upper Alphabet Set. It didn't had a letter "õ" (surprise, surprise), so I used "q" up side down. Looks a bit wonky but it works :) I glued an acetate behind the openings and made a shaker box underneath it. Background of the shaker is heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.
Background is stamped with Viva Decor Brick & Wood stamp and Versamark ink to the white cardstock. I heat embossed it with Opaline embossing powder. After that I inked the background with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks.
