The June stamp sets for Sparkle N Sprinkle are truly amazing! I LOVE these new flowers and roses, they are absolutely gorgeous! I used the Roses Stamp Set [784]. Here is my card.
I stamped the main rose in the center of my card panel, and stamped several other roses on scrap cardstock. I colored all the roses with Copic markers and then fussy cut out the rose in layers from the scrap cardstock images. I sprinkled on some Super Thick Clear Semi-transparent Embossing Powder [EP230] on the edges of each of the layers, and heat set them all from the bottom. I then used Scrapbook Adhesives - 3D Foam Squares - White [093616016145] to pop up each layer. You can see the dimension here.
Because I was going for a Clean and Simple card, I decided to add in some splatter to help fill some of the white space and move the eye. I mixed three embossing powders together: Super Thick Clear Semi-transparent Embossing Powder [EP230], White Detail Embossing Powder [EP298], and my new favorite Dragon Fruit Embossing Powder [EP410]. This created a softer and thicker dragon fruit color, with some additional dimension to it. I stamped out some splatter marks from Demo Donna's Stylin' Sayings Stamp Set [00-777P7] with Versamark Ink [VM-001], and I also drew on some random dots with the Versamark Pen [99561]. I dusted on the embossing powder mixture to these areas, and then heat set the powder. I wanted to add in a bit of silver too, so I pulled out my Super Thick Silver Enameled Embossing Powder [EP467], sprinkled it over the splatter areas, and heated from the bottom to keep it from flying away since the chunks are bigger. Here is a photo of some of the splatter.
And, another shot to show it above and below the dimensional rose. The splatter went from the bottom right to the upper left.
Here is a close up of the dew drops I made from Super Thick Clear Semi-transparent Embossing Powder [EP230]. I really like the look that this super thick embossing powder made. The rose had thick shiny drops on it, just like morning dew on the petals.
Because of the Super Thick Silver embossing powder, I wanted to continue the silver theme to frame the card. The Mon Ami Gabby Silver Diamond Mesh was the perfect embellishment! I cut out a frame that would go around the rose card panel. There are many colors of this diamond mesh. If Sparkle N Sprinkle doesn't show the color you want in stock, please contact the store to alert them what color you would like. The wonderful gals at the store will make it happen! I used one of my favorite, and most versatile, products to adhere the silver mesh to my card base. I laid down some 3/4" Double-sided "Tear-ific" Tape [SAT05] along all the edges, and adhered the silver mesh to it. Then, I burnished in some Sonic Silver Velvet Glitter (microfine) [GM2002] with my finger tool. This made a gorgeous frame for the card.
Here is another shot of the frame to show the sparkle in the silver glitter, and the gorgeous sparkly mesh.
I stamped out one of the sentiments from the Roses Stamp Set [784], and trimmed it into a banner. I edged it with a Copic marker,  and popped it up with foam adhesive over some ribbon. Here is the sentiment close up.
This card was so much fun to make, and I absolutely love this gorgeous stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I really hope you love it too, and I can't wait to see what you make with this set!

  27. Very clever using the mosaic die to create snowflakes, and you made Milton the center of attention with the different colors of glitter! I really like the way you didn't fully glitter all of the areas when you added the glitter, so some of the color, (i.e. his hoofs), were still visible, that adds more detail.
