#1 Dad Sparkle N Sprinkle Card [05.18.2016]

Here is another card I made for Sparkle N Sprinkle, using one of the new May 2016 Reveal stamps. I used the digi version of the Summer Grilling #1 Stamp Set [DIGI780j].

I pulled up several of the digital images from the stamp set on my computer, sized them to what I wanted, and printed them out onto Copic friendly white cardstock. I colored the images, and fussy cut more of them out. I used a label die to cut around the "#1 Dad" sentiment, and die cut out a larger label size for the background frame, and also dry embossed the background with a woodgrain embossing folder. I also blended distress inks onto the woodgrain embossed frame to give a bit of a wood grain look.

The "#1 Dad" sentiment has some wood grain within the font, so i didn't have to do much coloring - but I did add in some brown to help it match the overall theme. Then, I used the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] and drew on some glue lines where I wanted to add some glitter. I sprinkled on some Chameleon Glitter [G1137] onto the "#1 Dad" sentiment.  This Chameleon glitter is so cool! It is exactly like a Chameleon, and changes from a gorgeous bronze to a green ... this photo doesn't quite do it justice, but you can kinda see the two tones that appear within this glitter.
After coloring and fussy cutting the images, I blinged up some of the images too! I used the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] to draw on glue over the mustard and pickles on the hot dog. I added Mimosa Sparkle N Soft [SS114] over the mustard, and Glistening Emerald Sparkle N Soft [SS102] over the pickles. This gave a little sparkle and dimension to the condiments!
I did the same to the hamburger, I again used the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] to draw on glue over the cheese slices and pickles on the hamburger. I added Mimosa Sparkle N Soft [SS114] over the cheese, and Glistening Emerald Sparkle N Soft [SS102] over the pickles.
I also used the new Simply Screens Moroccon Mosaic by Tonic [1049e] die, and cut a screen to use on the edge of the card. These screen dies are beautiful, and it was a nice addition to this masculine card. After adhering it, I added a strip of 1/8" Double-sided "Tear-ific" Tape [SAT02] on the edge, and burnished in some new Enlightened Glitter [G1136] over the tape. This created a sparkly edging to the screens. I love this new glitter! Gorgeous!
And, I also love to do something on the inside of cards, and bring the theme to the inside. I used the awesome Popcessories Die by Stampendous [DCP1003] to create a popup box, and placed another sentiment and more images from the stamp set inside the card. This was really fun! Here is a photo of the popup and another sentiment.
I die cut the gift box popup image, and the hinge. I adhered these inside the card using 3/4" Double-Sided "Tear-ific" Tape [SAT05]. I also cut a scrap of the same colored cardstock to add a strip of cardstock to mount the die cut sentiment to raise it up out of the gift box popup. I adhered the strip to the die cut sentiment, and attached it to the hinge. Then, I attached that to the inside edge of the card, within the popup box. You can kinda see the workings here.
And, to make the sentiment sparkle a bit more, I used more of the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] and added in some Aztec Gold Glitter [G1006] over the words. This made everything a bit more fun!
This card was so much fun, and I love this new stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I can't wait to see what you can do with this stamp set too!

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
