Get Your Craft On

How are you everyone? Today I want to share another card I made for Sparkle N Sprinkle. This time it is with a Get Your Craft On stamp #794.

Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored it with Promarkers. I added Sakura Glue Pen to both ends of the fabric? roll she's holding and covered the glue with Merlot microfine glitter. Buttons are covered with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to add some shine to them.  I cut out the image and left a narrow white border all round. It's adhered to the card with Clear Foam Roll.

Background was very fun to make. First I cut a pattern paper in little squares, inked their edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink, pierced the holes and draw a faux stitching lines with white gel pen. Then I covered piece of cardstock (slightly smaller then a card base) with a 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. I adhered all the pattern paper squares to the tape and covered rest of the tape with Merlot microfine glitter.

For embellishments I used a bit of white lace and strip of Mon Ami Gabby Pearl Mesh. I also die cutted few buttons with Nellie Snellen Round Lily die out of white cardstock. I colored them with yellow marker and added a coat of Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. After it was dry I tied a piece of white thread through the holes.

Background layer was adhered to the card base with thin foam tape.

Winter Friends

Hi! Here is one sparkled up Christmas card I made with Sparkle N Sprinkle new Stamps set Eskimo Kisses #788. This set is also available in digital form.

I stamped these two cute fellows with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Promarkers. Then I used Spellbinders Labels One die as a template and traced the shape with pencil around the image. This was cut with scissors. I also used a Sakura Glue Pen to draw the frame around the edges and covered it with Cloud Nine glitter. It appears light blue because the edges was inked before with Broken China Distress Ink.Layers behind it are die cut with Spellbinders dies From Decorative Labels One and Lacey Circles Large sets out of Sticker Paper. One is covered with Cobalt Glaze and other with Collegiate Garnet  glitters.

I also added some sparkle to the background paper with Sakura Glue Pen. I traced the lines of the doily on the paper and added Cloud Nine glitter on top.

To make the flower I covered piece of paper with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and die cutted out the poinsettia and holly leaves with Creative Expressions Classic Poinsettia and Holly Sprays dies. Flowers are covered with Gypsy Red and leaves with Lator Gator glitters. In center of poinsettia is added a White 'pearl' with Nuvo Crystal Drops.Same thing is used to make the berries on the leaves. I just covered the 'pearl', while it was still wet, with Gypsy Red glitter.

 I love, love, love to use glittered paper as matting layer. For that I adhered a 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the cardstock and cover the tape with suitable glitter. This time I used Cobalt Glaze.

There is still time to participate in this month Sparkle N Sprinkle challenge. You can win some lovely digis of your choice.

Flower Cart

Hi! Today I want to share a simple Thank You card I made with a Sparkle N Sprinkle new Flower Cart #798 Digital Stamp Set.

I printed out the image twice and colored one of them entirely with Promarkers. On second copy I colored only umbrella. To make the matting layer I covered piece of cardstock with
2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and used largest die from Spellbinders Labels Sixty-Six to die cut it out. I adhered fuzzy cut image to the center and covered rest of the tape with Ocean glitter.

I used Sakura Glue Pen to adhere the Bubble Gum glitter to the bow and ruffles. Umbrella is popped up with pieces of Clear Foam Roll. Clear dimensional tape is perfect for small places.

Sentiment is also from the same digital set. I added some color to it with markers and cut the flag shape. I draw a lines around the edges with Sakura Glue Pen and Ocean glitter.

Background pattern paper is covered partially with
Versamark ink. I added Sparkle embossing powder on top and melted with a heat tool. Butterfly on the paper was 'colored' with Sakura Glue Pen and covered with Sunny Daze glitter.

Two little butterflies are die cut out of
Sticker Paper with Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Dimensional Butterflies set. They are covered with Sunny Daze glitter. It's a very nice semi-transparent glitter. I love to make little butterflies with it. This glitter won't be show as deep on the white paper. To make my butterflies brighter I added heavy coat of yellow color to the back of the Sticker Paper with marker. Color seeps through to front and after paper was dry I added the glitter to the sticky front.
Edges of the matting layer was covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Ocean glitter.

Materials used:
Stamp Credits: Flower Cart #798 Digital Stam Set;
Glitters: Bubble Gum (G1088), Ocean (G1126), Sunny Daze (G138);
Embossing Powders: Sparkle (EP107);
Inks: Versamark;
Dies: Spellbinders (Labels Sixty-Six), Cheery Lynn Designs (Mini Dimensional Butterflies);
Coloring Medium: Promarkers;

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

On my card I used digital set of the Pool Friends. I sized the image to fit my card panel and printed it out. It was colored with Promarkers. I also inked the background with Broken China and Scattered Straw Distress Inks. I added Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to their classes. I also added Ocean glitter to the water with Sakura Glue Pen.

Rubber Duck is also from same digital set. After coloring the image I covered it with layer of Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.

 I adhered the duck with foam tape to a strip of cardstock and made a pull tab. If you pull the tab, the duck will 'swimm' away to reveal the sentiment.

To make the window and the tab I used Spellbinders Back To Basic Tags set. Both sides of the window are cut with a die and everything in the middle was cut off with a paper trimmer. I also added Ocean glitter to around the window with Sakura Glue Pen.

Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Ocean and Margarita glitters. Love those colors together. To embellish the card I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Apple and White color.  

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we do.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.
