Right Beside You

Today I want to share with you a card made with beautiful silhouette stamps. Right Beside You Stamp Set was released by Sparkle N Sprinkle in the beginning of January. It comes as a rubber set and digital set

Although I love digi stamps, I decided to use rubber stamps instead. Tree and swing was stamped with Versamark ink to a white cardstock. I covered stamping with Black Magic Embossing Powder and heat set it. This EP has glitter in it. Love the result it gives.
Then I made masks from scrap piece of paper and inked the background with Distress Inks. For the sky I used Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Blueprint Sketch. Hills/forest are inked with Pine Needles and Peeled Paint. And for the grass I used Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn.

Sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I stamped it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.

Stamped image is matted to the layer I edged with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Suede Microfine Glitter. Layer underneath it is die cut with Spellbinders Postage Stamp cut out of white cardstock. I inked it with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Bottom Layer is edged with 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Blue Jewel Glitter.  

I didn't want to add any fancy embellishment to this card. I just added drops of Dimensional Glue to three corners of the image and covered the glue with Blue Jewel glitter. To pull some purple from the image to the background, I made my own glitter ribbon. For that I took pieces of 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. I covered them on both sides with Orchid Glitter.

Cute Chick

Today I want to share with you a sparkling Spring card. Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed an adorable Easter stamp set named  Easter Chicky 820. It is also perfect for a baby cards. 

I used a digital version from the same stamp set. I placed a shell and a flower to the chicky's head It's much easier with digi stamps. After printing the image I colored t with Promarkers. Egg shell is covered with Dimensional Glue. It dries clear and shiny. To flowers centers I added Daisy  Microfine Glitter with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen.
For the matting layer I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to a piece of cardstock and used a Spellbinders die (Labels Eighteen) to die cut the shape. Same die was also used as a template to cut out the image. I traced the inner edge of the die with pencil around the Chicky and cut it out with scissors. This was adhered in center of the die cut label and rest of the tape was covered with Denim Microfine Glitter.

Sentiment is also from same digital stamp set. It is cut out with MemoryBox Pastry Labels die. With Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen I drew a frame around the sentiment and covered the glitter with Denim Microfine Glitter.  Flower is covered with Purple Rain Microfine Glitter. 

Most fun and time consuming was the background. I covered piece of thicker cardstock with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Then I took MemoryBox Sylvan Corner die and run everything through the die cutting machine. Because I used thicker cardstock the die only cut the protective layer of the tape. This was what I wanted. Now I took an x-acto knife and did some more cutting. First I peeled off protective layer from all the parts I wanted to be green and covered revealed tape with Luau Green Microfine Glitter. Branches was covered with Bronze Splendor Glitter. For the butterflies I used Purple Rain and Daisy Microfine Glitters. Edge is covered with Denim and rest of the background with Cloud Nine Denim Microfine Glitter. 

Couple more butterflies, covered with Daisy Microfine Glitter,  was added to the card.

Cattelya Friendship

Today I want to share a card made with new Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set named Cattelya Friendship 818.

This time I only used one of the sentiment. It is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I used stitched circle die to cut it out. 
Layer behind it is made with piece of cardstock covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape (SAT11). I die cut it using a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die. After adhering the sentiment layer on top I covered rest of the tape with Cabernet (GM2034) Microfine Glitter.

Flowers are die cut with Spellbinders dies from Rose Creations set. They are cut out of white paper and inked with Fired Brick Distress ink. Small rose inside of the largest flower is die cut with Cheery Lynn Design die (Medium Rose) out of red paper. I put a glue in the middle of small rose and added Super Thick White Embossing Powder inside. This wasn't heat set with a heat gun. This way it looks like a flower stamen. 
I used Sticker Paper (99558) to die cut some leaves with Creative Expressions die (Faux Quilled Leaves). They are covered with Luau Green (GM2004) Microfine Glitter. This is stunning color but it was too bright for my vintage looking card. So I took a Flexmarker (Nutmeg) and some color to the leaves. I also used a Spellbinders Foliage die to cut more leaves out of vellum. 

Little butterfly is die cut with Cheery Lynn Design die (Mini Dimensional Butterflies) out of Sticker Paper (99558). It is covered with Cabernet (GM2034) Microfine Glitter.

I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops (Chocolate Fondue) to the flower centers and butterflies.

Butterfly border is die cut out of Sticker Paper (99558) with Joy!Crafts die (Butterfly Edge). It is also covered with Cabernet (GM2034) Microfine Glitter. I added a piece of lace to hide bottom part of the die cut.

For the background I used old pattern paper by Prima (Fairy Belle). It is die cut with Spellbinders die (Pierced Rectangles). Edges are inked with Tea Dye Distress ink. I sprinkled some Super Thick Gold (EP235) Embossing Powder to the paper and heat embossed from underneath. This avoids the powder to fly off.

Take a closer look at the entire Cattelya Friendship 818. It comes with three beautiful sentiments and gorgeous flower image. It is also available as digital set.

I used this lovely girl from Emily Showers of Love digital stamp set. She is printed out and colored with Promarkers. Dogwood Rose and Lavender Iris glitters was adhered with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to her outfit and accessories.  Part of the umbrella is fussy cut with scissors and rest of the image is die cutted with Spellbinders Oval die. I added some color to the edges with Broken China Distress Ink. Hearts are covered with Rose Water Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Sentiment is from same stamp set but it is in rubber form. Big plus with digi stamps is that you can resize them. And best thing with rubber stamps is that you can use embossing powders with them. So on my card I used them both. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and it is heat embossed with Rosa Embossing Powder. I used stitched rectangle die to cut it out. I wanted one end to be cut an angle, so I took a bigger rectangle and cutted the end again. Edges are inked with Broken China Distress ink.

I wanted lots of layers and texture underneath the main image. First I added a lace to the back side of the Oval image layer. Under that is a die cut shape made with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die. I covered it with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Dogwood Rose Glitter. To add more fancy edges I placed a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die cut underneath. 
Center panel of the background is dry embossed with Embossing Folder. To make the raised parts pop out better, I inked them slightly with Broken China Distress ink. I also adhered 1/8" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the top and bottom edges and covered the tape with Dogwood Rose Glitter. You don't see in on following photo, but I also placed die cut strips, made with Creative Expressions Trellis Edger die, underneath the edges.

Flowers and leaves are from my leftovers basket. Flowers are die cutted with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. They are colored with Worn Lipstick Distress ink... I think... I'm not completely sure of it. Leaves are die cutted with Spellbinders Sprigs die. For coloring I used Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress inks.

Card base is die cutted with die from Tonic Trellis Circle set

The next stop on our blog hop is extremely talented Donna

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????
