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.

  1. So pretty Eret. Love how the overstamping on the flakes work. Your little pleated Daisy ribbon is gorgeous and the die cut tucked under it is so sweet.

  2. Gorgeous card! I love the ribbon, the paper pieced copper flakes can, and the glitter edge frames. The die cut with glitter below is a wonderful idea too. So pretty!!


Thank you so much for your comment. It is always so nice to read them. Hugs and smiles. Eret
