For the Reveal Blog Hop, I made a shaker card with Whispers of Comfort - Hydrangea Stamp Set. I started with making the card base by cutting two same size shapes from white cardstock with Jasmine Sunset Tonic Layering Dies. One of them was scored 1,5 cm from the top. I added glue above the score line and adhered two shapes together. 

A must have tool for the technique I used, is the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I stamped the image with Jet Black StazOn to the Embossable Acetate. While keeping the acetate in the corner of the Platform, I removed the stamp from the lid and placed the sentiment stamp to the acetate right side down. I closed the lid of the Platform to pic up the stamp and made sure that the sentiment is straight. Then I removed the acetate from the Platform and stamped the sentiment to the scrap piece of paper. I placed the stamped acetate back to the Platform and used the sentiment underneath as a guide to see where the image covers the sentiment. With alcohol base Blender Marker, I started to erase part of the flower. After this was done, I stamped the sentiment to the acetate with Jet Black StazOn.

I moved on to the fun part - coloring with glitters. Glitter coloring is done on the back side of the Acetate. I applied Brushable Glue with small paint brush to the Butterfly and flower centers and covered it with Butterscotch Microfine Glitter. Then I moved on to the leaves. First I applied glue to the darkest parts of the leaves and covered it with Shamrock Microfine Glitter. Gecko Microfine Glitter was adhered to the rest of the leaves. Flowers are colored with Caspia Sea and Ocean Breeze Microfine Glitters.
Watch the Demo Donna's Hydrangea Thank You February Stamp Kit Video to see how the glitter coloring is done.

To make my shaker card, I stamped the image to the middle of the pattern paper. Then I cut it out with x-acto knife from the inside of the frame. The stamped frame is covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Butterscotch Microfine Glitter. To make the layer match with the card base, I used the same die from Jasmine Sunset Set. But instead of die-cutting, I traced the inner border to the pattern paper and cut it out with scissors.
I adhered the stamped Acetate layer behind the pattern paper frame. Another piece of pattern paper was used as a background for the shaker element. I adhered few sequins to the background and added Bronze Glass Glitter and more sequins from my stash inside of the shaker window.
Did you knew that Sparkle N Sprinkle carries sequins? Go, take a look. They are gorgeous. 

I didn't want to take a shine away from this lovely Hydrangea image, so I didn't add many embellishments. Just a piece of lace and light blue bling strip. Those diamond like elements are actually empty. I added Pale Periwinkle Nuvo Jewel Drops to fill them.

Whispers of Comfort - Hydrangea is a really gorgeous Stamp Set to have. I had so much fun playing with it on the Acetate and to color it with Microfine Glitters. I hope you try it out and share your masterpiece with us in Facebook Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge Group

Anniversary Wishes

I hope you had a chance to play with Sparkle N Sprinkle January 2018 Video Club Kit. Here is my version of this card.

Materials used:
Roses in My Heart Stamp Set 879;
Orchid Glitter [G1097]
Royal Purple Glass Glitter [GG14c];
Silver Detail Embossing Powder [EP257]
Clear Embossing Powder [EP120]
Deep Sea Dive Tonic Craft Perfect Embossed Paper
Chrome Silver Tonic Craft Perfect Mirror Card
Versamark ink
Memento ink (Tuxedo Black), VersaFine ink (Onyx Black)
Promarkers, Metallic Marker

I stamped the image from Roses in My Heart Rubber Set to the white cardstock two times with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. On one of them, I coloured only the flowers and fuzzy cut them out. On the second image, I coloured everything (although I didn't do any colour blending on flowers). I fuzzy cut the image by leaving white border all around. Fussy cut flowers ware adhered to the other image with foam tape. I did add some Orchid Glitter to them with Sakura Glue Pen

I used Deep Sea Dive Tonic Craft Perfect Embossed Paper for the background. I cut the rough heart shape out of it and spread Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste on top. While the Paste was still wet, I sprinkled Royal Purple Glass Glitter to the paste and pressed it in slightly.
I adhered stamped image on top of the Embossed Paper with Foam Tape and then cut off the excess paper which peeked from sides.
Matting layer was cut from 
Chrome Silver Tonic Craft Perfect Mirror Card. Because I don't have any big heart dies, I drew a freehand heart template, traced the shape to the back side of the Mirror Card and fuzzy cut it out.  

I also used the same template to cut my card base. I used Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the image inside of the card. First I placed acetate sheet in the corner of the Stamp Platform. Then I stamped the image to the acetate (with Memento ink because it is easy to clean it off from the acetate). Then I kept the acetate in place and slipped my card base underneath it. This allowed me to see where exactly I want the stamped image is going to be. I placed the magnet on the card to keep it in place. Then I removed the acetate and stamped the image to the card with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver Detail Embossing Powder

The image is coloured with Promarkers. I adhered Orchid Glitter with Sakura Glue Pen to the edge of the scalloped heart. Everything which was outside of the image was coloured with blue metallic marker. 
The sentiment was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine ink. While the ink was still wet, I covered it with Clear Embossing Powder and heat emboss with heat tool. I fuzzy cut the sentiment and adhered it to the Deep Sea Dive Paper, which was adhered to the Chrome Silver Mirror Card. This stack was adhered to the inside of the card to act as an easel stopper. 

Here is one more look at my heart shaped easel card. I'm very happy how it turned out.
