Hi from Sparkle N Sprinkler Designer Chris! I am in love with the new Bugaboo stamps that Sparkle N Sprinkle is now carrying. This Crafting is Exercise stamp set had me at Hello, so I made this card to share with you! Here it is.
I printed out a colored image of the digital version of the stamp. This makes a card so much easier to pull together! I used an oval die to cut out the image.
I blinged up the dress by using the new (and AMAZING!) Nuvo Glue Pen Fine adhesive and sprinkled on Ocean
semi-transparent glitter. I love to do dimensions, so I printed several
copies of the colored image. I fussy cut out the dress, apron, roller
tote, her hand full of markers, and her head, and layered them with foam
dimensional tape to pop them above the original image. Here is a shot
from the side showing the dimension.
I also like to bling up images ... The roller tote and dress just begged to have sparkles! I used the new Nuvo Glue Pen Fine to roll adhesive onto the fussy cut tote, and sprinkled on Raspberry Soda
semi-transparent glitter. I love using semi-transparent glitter because
the color of the glitter can be seen, but it also allows what is under
it to show through. I use them a LOT! Let's peek at the roller tote.
pretty much always want MORE bling on my card projects, and this one
was begging for MORE! I layered the oval card panel over a die cut
floral wreath. I layered the two together, and added some sparkle within
the floral pieces (more on that below). I also used the new Nuvo Glue Pen Fine tolay down a strip of adhesive along the inside edge of the oval and sprinkled on Cloud Nine semi-transparent glitter. Here is a shot of the wreath and glitter strip.
Even though I used the digital stamp version for my image, I wanted to use the rubber version of the Crafting is Exercise
stamp set for my sentiment. The sentiment cracks me up! It says
"Crafting counts as exercise." Ha ha! So true! I stamped the sentiment
with Versamark ink, and then heat set Mulberry
embossing powder. This is one of my favorite embossing powders. I love
the color, which is a nice pinkish color with some depth. Fabulous! I
also created a bit of a frame around the card as well with the Mulberry embossing powder.
back to how I added some dimension to the floral wreath and blinged it
up. I pulled out some card stock and adhered a strip of 2-1/2" Double sided "Tear-ific" tape
to it. I laid down the dies that I wanted to cut out, and ran them
through my Cuttlebug machine. Here is a photo of the card stock with the
"Tear-ific" tape strip adhered, and the dies positioned, ready to be
After I die cut out the pieces, I peeled off the release paper, and sprinkled on Cloud Nine
semi-transparent glitter to each piece. I then strategically placed the
sparkled up pieces within the wreath and added the bow to the front of
the card. This gave the whole card a lot of sass and sparkle!
card was lots of fun, and I love all the sparkle with the white on
white and the pops of color from the glitters on the dress and tote. The
sentiment pops as well. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I
enjoyed making it and sharing it with you!
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
