A Rose For You

I like cards with lots of embellishments and texture. But you don't need much if you have stunning glitters and beautiful stamps. On this card, I used Sparkle N Sprinkle A Rose For You Stamp Set #915.

Materials used:
Rosy Red Glitter [G1036];
Sticker Paper [99558];
Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolor Brush Pens - Arabian Night [894N], Festive Season [895N];
(Spellbinders - Radiant Rectangles; White Gel Pen)

I love to play with Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolor Brush Pens. I used pens from Arabian Night and Festive Season sets to make the background for the stamped image. I brushed water to the watercolor cardstock and then colored the sheet with three different Aqua Flow Pens. While everything was still wet, I sprinkled Cherry Bomb Nuvo Shimmer Powder to few places. I love how the colors melted into each other and the shimmer left from the powder. 
After the background was dry, I stamped the image and the sentiment from A Rose For You Stamp Set with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink. It was heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I drew the 'shadows' with White Gel Pen to help the image pop out a bit better. 

I stamped the image with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink two more times to the smooth cardstock and colored them with Nuvo Marker Pens. I used scissors to fussy cut one image entirely. From another image, I needed only the vase. Flower Stem has adhered directly to the background. Rest of the pieces has adhered with the foam tape. The vase was covered with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. 

I used a die from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangle set to die cut the colored background. Sides of the die cut was inked with Versamarker Pen and I heat embossed it with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I didn't have a die to cut the matting layer for it, so I adhered the colored piece to the Sticker Paper and fussy cut it slightly bigger by following the top layer. Sticker Paper was covered with Gold Dust Glitter.

Because this card needed more sparkle, I covered edges of the cardstock panel with 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Rosy Red Glitter. Then I dumped some Gold Detail Embossing Powder to the coffee filter and drag the edges of the glitter panel through the embossing powder. It stuck enough to heat emboss the powder from the back side of the panel (it flew off if I tried to heat it above).
I adhered some HAI Supply Mixed Clear Drops to my card as a subtle embellishment. 

Thank you for the visit!

Memory in Our Heart

Do you want it or not, Autumn is here. I made an autumn inspired sympathy card with Sparkle N Sprinkle Memory in Our Heart Stamp Set #917 and Fall Cotton Wreath Digital Stamp Set Digi3150.

Materials used:
Memory in Our Heart Stamp Set #917;
Fall Cotton Wreath Digital Stamp Set Digi3150;
HAI Rose Gold Washi Tape [WT-FOL-015];
Sakura Glue Pen [QUICKY];
(Crafters Companions dies - Winter Time; Butterfly punch; Corner Rounder; Pattern Paper)

Sentiment from Memory in Our Heart Stamp Set is stamped with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink to the white cardstock. I covered it with Glitzy Gold Embossing Powder and heat embossed. I tripped the cardstock to suitable size and rounded the corners with the corner punch. Edge of the layer was covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Irish Isle Glitter.
I covered a thin cardstock with HAI Rose Gold Washi Tape and punched out three butterflies. Then I punched three more butterflies out of light blue paper. I adhered gold butterflies on top of blue butterflies and added a drop of Dimensional Glue to their bodies. Glue was covered with Irish Isle Glitter.

I printed two pre-colored wreath images from Fall Cotton Wreath Digital Stamp Set and fussy cut them out. I adhered some Irish Isle Glitter to the leaves with Sakura Glue Pen. Both images were layered underneath the sentiment panel. 

I used Crafters Companions die (Winter Time) to die cut a frame out of cardstock. I inked it with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and covered it with Bullfrog Embossing Powder. I added three coats of ink and embossing powder to get nice smooth and raised surface. The frame has adhered to ordinary wooden pattern paper.

I fussy cut some blue flowers out of pattern paper and adhered them underneath the sentiment panel. I made embellishments out of HAI Rose Gold Washi Tape. I stuck the tape to itself (back sides together) and cut one end to narrow strips. Two of those was also tucked underneath the sentiment panel.

Instead of my usual glitter matting layers, I covered the edges with HAI Rose Gold Washi Tape. It's a quick and easy way to achieve a foiled look.

Thank you for the visit!

Purr-fectly Wonderful Holiday

Hi! Today I want to share a card made with Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas Kitty Stamp Set #921. I don't know, is this cute cat getting ready to decorate the tree or he took all the lights down because humans did it all wrong and he is about to show how it is done correctly. Whatever is on his mind, I love this sweet innocent face.

Materials used:
Sakura Glue Pen [QUICKY];
(Sizzix dies- Mini Holiday Greens; Pattern Paper)

This adorable kitty is from Christmas Kitty Stamp Set. I stamped him and two Christmas lights clusters with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink to the white cardstock and colored them with Nuvo Marker Pens. I fussy cut them by leaving narrow white edge all around. The metal part of the light bulbs was covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Aztec Gold Glitter. Light bulbs were covered with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. After everything was dry, I assembled all the pieces to the card.

I needed to use Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the sentiment. The stamp glinged to the platform lid and I placed the cardstock to the corner of the platform. I inked most of the stamp (except word 'purr-fectly') with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed it with Black Detail Embossing Powder. Then I placed the cardstock back to the corner of the platform, cleaned the stamp and inked only the word 'purr-fectly' with the same ink. This time I used Gold Detail Embossing Powder to heat emboss it. 

I used two different pattern papers for the background. I sprinkled some Oriental Fire Embossing Powder on top of them and heated with the Heat Tool from underneath. This embossing powder is a mixture of the red and black and it also has golden glitter in it. 
I colored smooth watercolor cardstock with Solar Flare and Green Parade Nuvo Shimmer Powders. After cardstock was dry, I used a die from Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens set to die cut several branches out of it. It's hard to see on the photo, but on the branches is a nice shimmer. 

Edges of the pattern paper and the sentiment strip are covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Aztec Gold Glitter. I inked the matting layers with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops and heat embossed them with Oriental Fire Embossing Powder.

Thank you for the visit!
Hugs & Smiles
