Dream Catcher

Hi! Today I have a card made with  Dream Catcher Maiden Stamp Set #865 by Sparkle N Sprinkle
Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers. But if you don't like or don't have time to color, you can use a digi set which comes with outline and pre-colored images. I added lots of sparkle to the image with help of the Sakura Glue PenOrchidOrange CrushAqua Marine and Sunny Daze Glitters was added to the feathers and round beads. Strings of the dream catcher are covered with Sterling Microfine Glitter. To make the round beads dimensional, I covered them with Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops.
For the matting layer I covered piece of cardstock with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape used Spellbinders Circle die to die cut the shape. Same die was used as a template to draw a circle around the image. After fussy cutting it out, I adhered it to the center of the matting layer. Rest of the tape was covered with Cabernet  Microfine Glitter.

I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to another piece of cardstock and covered it with Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter. I die cutted five clouds out of it. To the biggest cloud I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Tinsel Embossing Powder. Edges of the clouds was inked with Broken China Distress Ink. 

Decorative silver layer behind the image is die cutted with Round Lilly set by Nellie Snellen out of cardstock which was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Sterling Microfine Glitter. Easier option is to use Sticker Paper, but I like to use things I have a lot, and there is plenty of tape on that roll.  

For the background I used pattern paper with colorful feathers. Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Cabernet Microfine Glitter. Some more dots of  Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops was added for finishing touches.

Autumn Berry Wreath

Hi! Today I want to showcase a card made with Sparkle N Sprinkle Autumn Berry Wreath Stamp Set.
Wreath is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers. I used craft knife to cut it out. To make it easier for me I left narrow white border of paper all around the image. Some sparkle was added to the leaves with Sakura Glue Pen and Easy Green Glitter. Berries are covered with Nuvo Jewel Drops (Rosewater). 

Sentiment is from same Autumn Berry Wreath Stamp Set. It's stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Cherry Embossing Powder.

I am trying very hard to use up my old pattern paper packs. It's hard because they are pretty and I'd like to keep them forever... Luckily this Berry Wreath is so gorgeous and it deserves to be on top of some lovely papers. I used papers from DoveCraft (Bohemian) and  Prima (Fairy Belle). Edges of the papers are inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink. 
Layers underneath the pattern papers are my usual - matting layer edges are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape, pattern paper is adhered  in center and rest of the tape is covered with glitter. On this card I used Dazzling Rose Glitter.

This card was busy enough so I didn't add many embellishments. Only yellow sheer ribbon and double loop bow. 
Btw... The deer in the middle of wreath is fussy cut from patter paper and partially popped up with foam tape.

And now a bit about my card. Then I saw the Basket of Hope Stamp Set, I knew I have to have this. I love realistic looking stamps and I have waited a long time to make an Autumn card with inlay die cut leaf background. Basket of Hope was perfect for this.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Promarkers. It's cut out with craft knife and scissors. I covered berries and jar with Nuvo Jewel Drops (Orange Marmalade for jar and Strawberry Coulis on berries). For the matting layer I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to piece of cardstock and used die from Nellie Snellen Photo Frames set to cut it out. After adhering image layer to center I covered rest of the tape with Bronze Splendor Glitter. 

For the background I took a piece of White cardstock and inked it with Distress Inks (Old Paper, Fossilized Amber and Tea Dye). Some droplets of water was also sprinkled on top of the inking. 
I used Creative Expressions Autumn Leaf Trio die set to cut six shaped windows to it. In this set has three detailed and three matching silhouette dies, so I used them all to cut all the windows in one pass. 

I inked the edges of one of previously cut silhouette leaf with Tea Dye ink and used Versamark ink to stamp the sentiment to the center. It's heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.

Piece of Acetate was adhered underneath the inked layer. On top of the windows I die cutted two sets of detailed leaves and adhered them to the Acetate. Some veins was drawn with yellow marker to the back side of the Acetate. You can barely see the color but it gives nice effect.
Most bottom layer is covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. To the edges I applied  Bronze Splendor Glitter and rest of the tape was covered with Microfine Glitter. Inked panel is adhered on top of it with Foam Tape.

Frame is cut with paper trimmer. Some Orange Marmalade Nuvo Jewel Drops was added to finish off my card.

My blog was last stop on the SNS Blog Hop. But if started from the middle You should go to Shona's blog to follow the full Hop :) I hope you enjoy(ed) it!

Nice Normal Family

Hi! Today I want to share a simple and fun card made with Sparkle N Sprinkle Chicken Run Stamp Set #761 and Stampendous stamp named Whiskers

For a start I smudged some Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Hickory Smoke) to the craft mat, spritzed them with water and placed piece of watercolor cardstock in to it. I dried the CS and placed back to the ink. After I was happy with the background and it was totally dry, I took the Whiskers  stamp, inked it with Versamark ink and stamped the image on top of the background. Image was heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder. I added some shading to the cats with same Distress inks and watercolor brush. Darker shadows was colored with Gray marker. Background of the cats is colored with Mother of Pearl Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and waterbrush. 
Cats eyes are colored with White Gel Pen and Citrus Green Embellishment Mousse

Cats eyeballs needed a bit more so I covered them with Apple Sour Nuvo Glow Drops. Because I didn't want their eyes to be dimensional, I added Glow Drops with small paintbrush. Nuvo Glow Drops makes their eyes to glow in the dark. Of course the glow would had been more intense If I had added bigger drops, but it is cool like this too. After Glow Drops was dried, I draw a little dot back in center of their eyeballs with Black marker.

Sentiment is from Chicken Run stamp set. Love how well it goes together with Whiskers stamp. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink to the Black Cardstock and it's heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder. Pattern on some of the cats was covered with Dimensional Glue and Elephant Flocking.

Edges of the matting layer behind the cats are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Ice Glitter. Edges of the card base are covered with 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Half of the tape is covered with Sterling Microfine Glitter and rest is covered with Elephant Flocking.

Elf Peeker

Hi! Today I have a fun little interactive card to share made with Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps and glitters. I used two new digi sets and one older rubber stamp on it: Elf Peeker DIGI858, Winter Greetings Bird and Wreath DIGI855 and Tree Scene 723.
The card looks a bit boring at first - a nice winter scene and silent "psst.." echoing behind the wall...

But if you pull the tag on the side, things will start to happen...

Hehee... I love this adorable peeking elf. As said before, he is from Elf Peeker Digital stamp set. He comes as a rubber version as well. But for this card I preferred digi set. That allowed me to make the Elf and sentiments as large as I needed and because Sparkle N Sprinkle digi sets comes with pre-colored images, I didn't had to spend time for coloring. I just added covered the bells on his hat with Limoncello Nuvo Jewel Drops.
Background is made with Tree Scene stamp. I stamped the scene with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I masked both trees and stamped third one in the middle. Coloring is done with Promarkers. To make the snow sparkle I adhered Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter to the trees and the ground with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen. Falling snowflakes was made with White Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Wreath is from Winter Greetings Bird and Wreath Digi Set. Again I used one of the colored image. I added sparkle to it with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and few glitters: Aqua Marine for sprigs and Lemonade for berries. Berries are also covered with Limoncello Jewel Drops. A little bow and dot of White Crystal Drops was added to decorate it. 
To make the wall I took a piece of white cardstock and inked it with Distress Inks (Vintage Photo, and Tea Dye. After dry embossing it with brick embossing folder I added some Hickory Smoke Distress ink for shading. It needed something more so I added a 'frost' with Mother of Pearl Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I know that yellow and snow don't go together but I need a bit more yellow to bring out the yellow berries and bells. I adhered 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the card base and covered it with Lemonade Glitter.
