Call me witch

Today I want to share a card I made with a Sparkle N Sprinkle new Stella - Call Me Witch Digital Set.

Image was printed out and colored with Promarkers. I cut the image with scissors and left a narrow white border all around. This helps her to stand out from the background and makes the cutting a lot easier. To sparkle up her outfit I used Sakura Glue Pen with Aztec Gold and Hyacinth glitters. 


Stella's hair are 're-colored' with Sakura Glue Pen and Elephant Gray flocking. Her glasses are covered with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.


Sentiment is also from the same digital stamp set. I covered the word 'witch' with Sakura Glue Pen and added Hyacinth glitter on top. Edges of the sentiment layer is made the same way. The extra star is cut out and covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Aztec Gold glitter.


Because my card was very sparkly I didn't want to add many embellishments. I just added White Nuvo Crystal Drops to the card base.  Some of them was covered with Aztec Gold glitter while they were still wet.


Background was fun to make. I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the thick cardstock and used Spellbinders Contemporary Diamonds die to cut a shape through the protective sheet of the tape. I removed almost every piece of the protective sheet except the shape which was die cut. I also placed some of the removed squares back to different places. Revealed tape was covered with Hanauma Bay glitter. After it was burnished in well, I removed rest of the protective sheet pieces and covered the tape with  Orange Surprise glitter. Entire layer was adhered in center of the cardstock with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape added to it's edges. Those edges was covered with Hyacinth glitter.

Puppy Girl

Today I have a simple card to share I made with new Sparkle N Sprinkle Puppy Girl Digital Stamp Set 793. 


Image is colored with Promarkers. I added some sparkling polka dots with Sakura Glue Pen and Gypsy Red glitter.  I draw the line entire border of the image layer with Sakura Glue Pen and covered it with Gypsy Red glitter


Matting layer is my usual: I place 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the piece of cardstock, adhere pattern paper in center and cover rest of the tape with glitter. This time I thought that Bronze Splendor glitter would work well.

Sentiment is printed out and cut in pieces. I inked the edges of each word with Desert Sand Memento ink. Same ink was used to highlight the die cut border.


Image layer is popped up with a foam tape.

Retro Puppy Girl

It's so much fun to play with new stamps. In September Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed Puppy Girl stamp set 793. It is available as rubber and digital sets. digi version is the one I used on this card. I sized the image to fit my card, placed the sentiment next to it and printed them out. Image was colored with Promarkers. 

Don't you just love this adorable little dog!? To make him even cuter, I added a fur to his body with Sakura Glue Pen and Elephant Gray Flocking. Electrified Yellow glitter was added with help of the Sakura Glue Pen to all bows. To make the dog nose shine I covered it with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. 


To embellish my card I added some White and Apple Green Nuvo Crystal Drops all around the card.


I have to admit something... I am not a big fan of Neon colors. For some time I was afraid to use them. Neon colors are bright, glitter is sparkling, combination of something bright and sparkly seems too much. So silly of me. These glitters are awesome! The texture of them is wonderful - so soft to touch. And they are not too glittery. It's almost like microfine version of Sparkle N Soft. I love them!
To make my card background, I adhered strips of 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the card base, leaving little caps in between. Tape was covered with Exulted Pink, Energized Orange, Exhilarated Green and Electrified Yellow glitters. They are also available as a set - Donna's Neon Glitter Set


Image layer is matted to a piece of cardstock which edges was covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Suede Microfine Glitter. Mostly I use white cardstock for the matting layer. I just color edges of the paper with marker to mach the glitter. This way no white is peeking from the side.

I used digi version DIGI795 from Crafting is Exercise 795 stamp set. I re sized it to fit my card front and printed it out. Image is colored with Promarkers. It's cut out with scissors a little slanted and I also left a narrow white border around the image contours. 


I went a bit messy with the background. Until the very end I was sure I'll throw this piece away. I didn't like it at all.
I took a piece a watercolor cardstock and dry embossed it with the embossing folder. I planned to tap all the raised parts with Versamark ink so only the raised parts will get inked. I covered everything with Wisteria Embossing Powder, tap off the excess and ... I saw that my plan failed. The parts I wanted to be covered wasn't covered well and some powder was in place I didn't want it. I still kept going and heated the powder with an heat tool.  Then I sprinkled Ultramarine Blue Color Burst all over and colored the background with water brush. I didn't like the outcome. But after I placed all other pieced on top of it I started to like what I saw. Wohoo!


For corner embellishments I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to cardstock and die cutted the shape with Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish Two die. Then protective sheet of the tape was removed I covered sticky side with Hyacinth Velvet Glitter.


Sentiment is also from the same stamp set as the image. It is die cutted with a die from Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One set. I draw a frame with Sakura Glue Pen and covered it with Rose Gold Velvet Glitter. 
Matting layers are made as I usually make the: Edges are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape, top layer is adhered to the center and rest of the tape is covered with glitter - Rose Gold Velvet Glitter is used on this card. 
To add something more I used White and Wisteria Purple Nuvo Crystal Drops to make little pearls all over the card. The heart on sentiment panel is also made with the same thing.


The next stop on our blog hop is Anne. She is going to amaze you. Let's the hop begin!
