Shine shine shine! Today I have a very shiny card to share with you. I used new Sparkle N Sprinkle Rubber stamp set named Colorful Cosmos Bloom 899.
Stamps: Colorful Cosmos Bloom 899;
Glitters: Spirited Green [G1070];
Dies: Stitched Circle;
Coloring Medium: Nuvo Markers - Coral Reef [322N], Irish Clover [325N], Fresh Pear Nuvo Mica Mist [574N], Cerulean Blue Nuance Watercolor Powder [MNU011];
Adhesives: Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky];
Image is stamped with Black Shadow Nuvo Hybrid Ink and I used Nuvo Markers - Coral Reef and Irish Clover, to color those beautiful flowers. I fussy cut the image out leaving narrow white border all around. Center of the flowers are covered with Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops.
I made a bunch of invitations and I was left with pile of stitched circles. I don't like to throw away good die cuts, so I decided to make a card out of them. I adhered the circles with temporary adhesive to a scrap paper and spritzed them with Fresh Pear Nuvo Mica Mist. While it was still wet, I sprinkled some Cerulean Blue Nuance Watercolor Powder on top. I spritzed water and more Mica Mist to make the powder melt even more. Circles was cut out of regular cardstock, so the powder didn't move as much as if it would move on top of the watercolor cardstock. While the circles was still wet, I sprinkled Magic Speckle Embossing Powder to some of them. I used the Heat Tool to melt the Embossing Powder and dry the circles.
On following picture you can see all the nice sheen of the Nuvo Mica Mist and the texture of Magic Speckle Embossing Powder. I had black circles printed to some of the die cut pieces. I drew them over with Sakura Glue Pen and covered with Spirited Green Glitter. Then I adhered all the circles to piece of cardstock and trimmed the edges. I love how this background turned out.
When I made the background, I didn't had any plan where the circles go and how I design the card out of it. I just had fun with all those pretty shiny circles. Then I started to assemble the card, one of the circles stood out. It looked like it is perfect for the sentiment. Because I didn't had even surface for stamping, I used Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I stamped the sentiment couple of times on top of each other with Versamark ink and heat embossed the sentiment with White Detail Embossing Powder.
I scattered some dots of Nuvo Glitter Drops - Yellow Bird and Orange Soda, around the sentiment and flowers as finishing touches.
I would love to see what you do with your leftover die cut pieces. Please make a project with Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp (digi or rubber) and share it on the Facebook Sparkle N Sprinkle Challenge group. If you don't have any SNS stamps to create with, there are three free digi stamps at the Sparkle N Sprinkle web page to get you started.
Thank you for the visit!
