Sparkly Stylin' Sayings {03.23.2016}

Hi! I gotta tell ya, I LOOOOOVE Sparkle N Sprinkle's new Demo Donna's Stylin' Sayings Stamp Set 777. The sayings and fonts are perfect! Today's card used the "Sparkle" sentiment (because, yes, we can never get enough sparkle in our lives!), the brush marks, and the sweet little splatters from this stamp set. Let's get right to it!

I stamped out the brush marks in multiple ink colors, with both first generation and second generation stamping. I did this to create a bit of a transition between the colors as they moved down the page. Not quite an ombre effect, but I wanted the colors to blend together a bit.
After stamping the brush marks, I stamped the "Sparkle" sentiment with Versamark Ink Pad (VM001) and then heat embossed Silver Lightning Embossing Powder EP262. The silver embossing really stood out over the multi-colored background! Here is another shot of the silver embossing.

I also wanted to add some dimension and more color, so I created a rose from some die cuts, and then brushed on some Brushable Glue 540 onto the rose petals, and sprinkled Bridal Glitter [G1029] onto the petals. This made them seem dewy and sparkly. Once the rose was ready to go, I laid down a strip of 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape [SAT04], pressed in a strip of Diamond Mesh Green [MON6]. Then, I sprinkled on more Bridal Glitter [G1029] and pressed it into the rest of the "tear-ific" tape with my finger tool.


I have been known to keep adding when I make cards, and this was no exception. I really liked where I was going, but wanted MORE! Thus, I pulled out the little splat stamp image from the stamp set, and stamped the splats several times with Versamark Ink Pad (VM001). I then added in some Firecracker Red Embossing Powder [EP291] and heat embossed it. I repeated this process with more Silver Lightning Embossing Powder EP262, Daffodil Embossing Powder [EP217] and Pink Lady Embossing Powder [EP337]. These gave some nice splats across the colored brush marks and added a little pizazz :) I also swiped the Versamark Ink Pad (VM001) along the edges of the card panel and added even more Silver Lightning Embossing Powder EP262. This made for lots of nice dimension and texture, and pops of color.

Here is another angle of the multi-colored splats.
And, even more. I like how the embossed splats stand out over all different background inks. This stamp image is the perfect little embellishment to add a little something-something. I love it! Check out how that Firecracker Red Embossing Powder [EP291] pops across the page!

I hope you find Demo Donna's Stylin' Sayings Stamp Set 777 as fun as versatile as I have! ... I know you will!
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
