For someone special

Merry Christmas everyone! The card I share Today is not overly Christmas looking but I think it is suitable for the occasion.

I used Build A Wreath Digital Stamp Set to make the card. It's fantastic set. You can build your own uniqe wreaths. I choce the sprig wreath and added leaves and berries. It was time consuming process. But only because I had to make it twice... Right after I finished placing all the leaves and berriest to the wreath, and I was happy with the result, I wanted to save my work but computer froze. So, I took a camera and made a photo of my computer screen. After computer was restarted, I imported the photo to computer and used it as a reference guide. At least I didn't had to re-think placement of the leaves again. But despite everything, it was fun to play with this stamp set. 

Image was colored with Promarkers. To the berries I added Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. It dries clear and leaves nice dimensional shine.  wrreath and the sentiment are cut out with Silhouette machine.

Lavender Iris Glitter was adhered to the bow with Sakura Glue Pen 

On the background I used wooden pattern paper. To add some interest I made score lines to it and added Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Inksdirectly to paper. I also sprinkled Super Thick Silver Embossing Powder on top and heated with a heat tool from underneath until powder melted. I also added drops of Wisteria Purple Nuvo Crystal Drops to the pattern paper. 

Edged of the pattern paper was distressed with scissors. I took a white lace and colored it with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. Lace was placed to peek out underneath the pattern paper.  

If you like Build A Wreath Digital stamp set but prefer rubber stamps, I recommend to keep your eyes open on New Year ;)

Happy Easter, Every Bunny!

Happy Easter, Every Bunny! No, I'm not crazy. I just had lots of fun playing with new Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Bunny 819 Stamp Set. 

Image is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used Promarkers to color it. Sentiment is from same stamp set. It is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder. I cut it out by hand, folded it and inked the edges with Broken China Distress Ink.

In center of blossoms I added a dot of glue with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Berry Red  glitter.

To give some shine and sparkle to the eggs I covered them with Pink Champagne and Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops.

Frame is die cut with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles dies out of Sticker Paper. I covered the Sticker Paper with Berry Red Glitter Cabernet Velvet Glitter. They are similar by color but Velvet Glitter is much finer. I also colored the sides of the frame with matching marker. I like that this way no white isn't peeking out from the sides.

Bloom with Happiness

Here is a card in bright Summer colors to light up those long and dark winter nights. I used brand new Sparkle N Sprinkle Rustic Flower - Snapdragons 816 stamp set.

On the focal image I did some paper piecing. First I covered piece of white cardstock with 
Large Nuvo Glue Pen. While it was drying I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink to another piece of white cardstock. I colored flowers with Promarkers and added some Margarita Velvet Glitter with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to some leaves.  Then I returned back to the first piece of cardstock. On top of the sticky glue (Nuvo Glue Pen dries sticky) I added Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Crystal Drops. After excess flakes was rubbed away, I stamped the can part of the image with JetBlack StazOn ink on top. This was fussy cut out and glued to the colored image.

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder. For the background I used white cardstock which was inked with Dandelion Memento and Spun Sugar Distress inks.

I used dies from Creative Expressions Trellis Edger set to add some interest to the background. Inked background is popped up with foam tape. Layer underneath is covered with 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Crystal Drops. I made a glittered ribbon with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Daisy Velvet Glitter.  Here is a tutorial how to make this kind of pretty ribbons.
To finish off the lattice I added some White 
Nuvo Crystal Drops to middle of each cross point.

To the edges of the matting layers I added 
1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Margarita Velvet Glitter.  Some Green Apple Nuvo Crystal Drops was also added to the card.

This is it - my bright summer card.

I had lots of fun playing with Digi version of Build-A-Flower set. Then I saw this stamp set, I knew I want to have it as digi. I love to play with them and I enjoy entire process...until I have to explain what and how I did... This is most difficult. My language skills are not up to it. But I do my best...

I re-sized images and arranged them in the way as I wanted the end result will be. I printed it out and fussy cut it. Then I traced the outline two times to a white cardstock. After fussy cutting them out I scored one of them about 2 cm on top and covered it above the score line with glue. Two shapes was adhered together to form a card base. Then I turned back to computer, scattered all the images plus extra copy of the pot and printed them. 

Coloring is very simple. I inked the flowers with Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Scattered Straw, leaves with Mowed Lawnand and Twisted Citron, and a pot with Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Inks. Flower centers are covered with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Canary Flocking. I also added some Starfire Glitter with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen to the petals. Flowers are not fully adheared. Some of them are glued only from the center to the piece I printed out first, others are adhered with foam tape. 

Flower pot is adhered with narrow strips of foam tape. I placed the tape in three edges. This way it acts like a pocket. Upper part of the pot is cut out seperately and it's adhered from three edges with a glue and foam tape in the bottom center. 
To fit the layer with flowers inside of the pocket, I trimmed the pot part smaller (remebmer it was the first piece I printed. I actually cut it before I adhered flowers on top of it).

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and it's heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder. 

Same card can be done with rubber set too (it comes with larger and smaller flowers) but you have to make the flower pot yourself. 
This card is quite simple to make. I love the hidden pocket and removable flowers. 

The next stop on our blog hop is Chris.

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.  

 Wonder who the Mystery Host will be this month????
