Pear Blossoms

Hi! Today I want to share a card made with Sketched Pear Blossoms Digi904 Digital Stamp Set by Sparkle N Sprinkle. I used the same set to make a background pattern paper and focal image. I also used an older rubber stamp Garden Silhouette 600 to add the sentiment for my card. 

Materials used:
StampsSketched Pear Blossoms Digi904, Garden Silhouette 600;
GlittersSea Spray [G1023], Shell Pink [G1023];
Embossing PowdersBronze Rose [EP335];
InksVersamark [VM001];
Dies: Nellie Snellen (Photo Frames);
Adhesives1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT01], Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky], Medium Nuvo Glue Pen [203N];
Cardstock: White, Pattern Paper;
EmbellishmentsYellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops [769N];

I used the pre-colored digi image from the Sketched Pear Blossoms set. I re-sized it to suit my card, printed it out and fussy cut it with a narrow white edge all around. Shell Pink Glitter has adhered to the blossoms with Sakura Glue Pen. I also added dots of Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops to the center of big white blossoms.

I made a frame behind the branch to help the image stand out from the busy background. For that, I adhered three die-cut frames on top of each other and covered the inner side with Medium Nuvo Glue Pen and Sea Spray Glitter. After that, I added vellum behind the frame. 

To make my background, I took two pre-colored blossom images from the stamp set. I made several copies of them, re-sized some and rotated and move them around until I had a nice looking pattern. I also changed the opacity of the entire image and then I printed it on top of the wooden pattern paper. 
Shell Pink Glitter has adhered to the stamens all over the paper with Sakura Glue Pen.
For my glitter matting layer, I adhered 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to edges of the cardstock, adhered the pattern paper in the center and covered rest of the tape with Sea Spray Glitter. 
The sentiment is from Garden Silhouette Stamp Set. It's stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Bronze Rose Embossing Powder.

I liked this card, so I made another similar one. I used a slightly different wooden pattern paper to print my blossoms on. Instead of the stamped sentiment, I used die cut word. 

Three die cut words are cut from white cardstock and one out of Sticker Paper  [99558]. Sticker Paper word was covered with Radiant Gold Nuvo Gilding Flakes and then I adhered all of die cut words on top of each other. To add a sparkle to the word, I covered it with Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops. Matting layer is also covered with the same Gilding Flakes.

On the following photo, you can see how the same blossom pattern looks on two different pattern paper.

I'd love to see what you can create. Make a project and share it on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge over on Facebook.

Country Home Shadow Box

Do you like digital stamps? I love them! It is so fun to combine them to make awesome cards. Today I want to share a shadow box card made with four Sparkle N Sprinkle digital stamp sets and one digital paper pack. 

Materials used:
StampsVintage Country Home Digi911, Fashionista Digi876, Puppy Girl Digi793, I Love Old Trucks Digi890, Digital Papers Watercolor Papers Blue Digi4002;
GlittersMeadow Spark [G1014];
Embossing PowdersClear [EP120];
Inks: Distress Ink (Peeled Paint, Broken China, Tea Dye), Versamark [VM001];
AdhesivesSakura Glue Pen [Quicky];
Cardstock: White;
EmbellishmentsDark Walnut Nuvo Crystal Drops [684N];

I love that Sparkle N Sprinkle digital stamp set also includes pre-colored images. They are always so beautifully colored and saves you time. This card started from the new Vintage Country Home Digital Stamp Set. It is so beautiful image and soon as I saw it, I wanted to make a shadow box card with it. So I started to play with house image on my computer and looked for older digis to go with it. I digitally cut the tree out of the image, made several copies of it, flipped and resized some of them. those were used later on other layers. On the first layer is only the house. On the second layer is a truck from I Love Old Trucks set (I cut the tree shorter to look like a bush and adhered it to the second layer after I printed and fussy cut the images with scissors).  

The third layer (the frame) is digitally designed in the computer from two Digital Papers from Watercolor Papers Blue set. I used blue for the sky and green for the grass. I placed previously 'cut' trees on top of them and also added girls from Fashionista and Puppy Girl Digital Stamp Sets. After printing the scene, I fussy cut the window to it. 
I took the Sakura Glue Pen and added tiny dots of glue all over the tree leaves and covered it with Meadow Spark Glitter. (I apologize for the lack of photos, my camera died and I wasn't able to take better close-up photos with my phone).

The sentiment is also from the same Vintage Country Home Digi Set. I printed it out and cut it with scissors. I covered entire sentiment with Versamark ink and Clear Embossing Powder. After using the heat tool to melt the powder, I repeated it once more. This gave a nice shine to the label. I added a dots of Dark Walnut Nuvo Crystal Drops to each corner and let it dry a bit. Then I took the craft knife and pressed the back of the blade gently to the dots. It's hard to see on the photo but there are grooves inside of each dot, similar to nail head. 

I'd love to see what you can make with digital stamps. Make a project and share it on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge over on Facebook. You can enter with anything that uses an SNS image, either rubber or digi. If you don't have any, you can pick up free digis over on the SNS website!

Emma's Best Birthday

Hi! This is my first card for Sparkle N Sprinkle July 2018 Reveal. I used the Emma's Best Birthday Digi902 Digital Stamp Set from this Reveal and a few older SNS rubber stamps.

Materials used:
StampsEmma's Best Birthday Digi902, Honey Bees 775, Happiness Greetings 886;
GlittersPinkerbell [G1130];
Embossing PowdersGold Detail [EP168];
InkVersamark [VM001], Versamarker PenSafari Green Nuvo Hybrid Ink [215N],  Distress Ink (Broken China, Worn Lipstick);
Dies: Marianne Design, Spellbinders (Sprigs);
Coloring MediumSpring Meadow [893N] and Autumn Woodland [890N] Nuvo AquaFlow Pens, Northern Lights Nuvo Glitter Markers [171N];
AdhesivesSakura Glue Pen [Quicky];
Cardstock: Kraft, Pattern Paper, White;
Embellishments: White Paper Rose (colored with Spiced Ginger AquaFlow Pen), Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops [769N];

I used one of the pre-colored images from Emma's Best Birthday Digi set on the card front. I printed two copies of it and fussy cut the cake from one of them. The cake has adhered with the foam tape on top of the second image. The layer was cut to the size and one corner was rounded. I inked the edges with Distress Inks (Broken China, Worn Lipstick). Sparkle for her dress and the cake was added with Sakura Glue Pen and Pinkerbell Glitter. The candle flame was covered with Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops 

I used the pattern paper for the background. To make it more interesting, I used the Versamark ink to stamp the honeycomb from Honey Bees stamp set and heat embossed it with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. Versamarker Pen was used around the edges to heat emboss them with same Gold Detail Embossing Powder. 

For the flower cluster, I took a white paper rose and colored it with Spiced Ginger AquaFlow Pen from Autumn Woodland set. The leaves underneath it are from Happiness Greetings rubber stamp set. I stamped them with Safari Green Nuvo Hybrid Ink and colored them with Green Marker from Northern Lights Nuvo Glitter Markers set and Fresh Green from Spring Meadow AquaFlow Pen set. I also added the green flourish I found on my leftover basket. I believe it is cut with the die from Spellbinders Sprigs set and looks like it is colored with green marker. 
I made couple golden die cut foliage for the bottom of the cluster. I glued two foliage on top of each other and then inked the top with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold Detail Embossing Powder.

The sentiments (on the card front and on the inside) and the birds are from the same Emma's Best Birthday Digi set. The layer is cut to the same size as the image layer on the card front. Once again, I used Distress Inks (Broken China, Worn Lipstick) to add some color to the edges. I adhered leftover golden foliage to the inside of the card.

Here is one more look at my card. I used kraft cardstock as a card base and matting layers.

Thank you for the visit!
Hugs & smiles,
