And now, back to my project. I used the new Emily Showers of Love stamp set (squeal! so gorgeous, so cute, so sweet, so wonderful!). Here is my card.

I stamped out Emily and colored her with markers. I wanted to give her some extra sparkle. I pulled out my Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and rolled out adhesive in specific spots. I added Luau Green glitter to her eyes, Orchid Rose glitter to the dropping hearts, and Cloud Nine glitter to the heart rain drops. I also added some Olaf White glitter to her dress.

I stamped out the sentiment, using Versamark Ink Pad, sprinkled on White Detail embossing powder, and heat set it. I die cut it out into a rectangle, and then rolled on some Nuvo Glue Pen Fine along the edge and sprinkled on Princess Anna Fuschia glitter.

I used some patterned papers for this card. One of the papers had sweet little butterflies. I fussy cut them out, coated them with Versamark Ink and then covered them with Sparkle embossing powder. I heat set them, and shaped them to give their wings a little dimension. I also framed the main image by adhering a strip of 1/8" Double sided "Tear-ific" Tape along the edge of cardstock, removed the release paper, and burnished in Pretty Princess glitter with my finger tool. I layered this behind my image and it gave it a nice border and some more sparkle. Always what I am going for!

I also decorated up the patterned paper in the background. I again used my Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and sprinkled on more Cloud Nine glitter.This is pretty subtle and kinda hard to see in this photo, but it is more sparkly in real life.

Here is another photo of Emily and all her glittery goodness. I love this stamp set and swoon whenever I see her. She has a very versatile set of sentiments, and this set can be used for multiple occasions. I know you will love it!

Keep the blog hop going! Your next stop will be Eret. She will have an amazing project for you to see. Make sure you comment below, and on all the stops on the hop, to be eligible to win the stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Bunny {12.28.2016}

I am bringing you a card today showcasing the Spring Bunny stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle, which is absolutely gorgeous! It is one of their new releases for December. Let's check it out.
I stamped the bunny on white cardstock with black ink, then sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it. I colored the bunny, eggs, and flowers with Copic markers. Then, I started adding SPARKLE! I rolled out some Nuvo Glue Pen Fine onto the images, and sprinkled on glitter. I added Cloud Nine glitter to the eggs, Bubble Gum glitter to the pink flowers, and Orchid glitter to the purple flowers. The Cloud Nine glitter was perfect for the eggs - even though they are different colors, the Cloud Nine glitter made the eggs really sparkly and still allowed the colors to come through. The eggs look great, don't you think?

Here is a closeup of some of the flowers and egg here. The glitters made these really pretty!

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink Pad, and then sprinkled on White Detail embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool.

I layered the card over some die cut shapes and added on some Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops along the outer edge for extra pizazz.

This Spring Bunny stamp set is so adorable and I really had fun making this card. It makes me really happy to see this bunny. I know you will love this set!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Wishing Ewe a Wonderful Day {12.21.2016}

I know, I know, a little early for Valentine's day ... but this new Will Ewe Be Mine stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle is great for Valentine's Day AND as an all-around stamp set. Let's check out the card I made using this new Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set for SNS's December release.

I stamped out the image onto white cardstock and die cut it into a circle shape. I lightly colored the sheep with Copic markers, and added some distress ink to the background for a sky. Then, I whipped out my favorite roller adhesive, the Nuvo Glue Pen Fine, and applied glue to the sheep's curls. I sprinkled on Surf glitter, and viola! I had cute sheep! I also applied Bubble Gum glitter to their eye lids. I applied glue to half of each heart, and sprinkled on Gypsy Red glitter. This made the hearts sparkle even more! I also drew along the string lines of the image with the glue pen, and applied Black Ice glitter to the string. I also applied Sonic Silver glitter to the sheeps' hooves.

I also created another die cut circle to frame the sheep circle. I measured out a scalloped die cut on cardstock, and then applied 1/2" Double sided "Tear-ific" Tape along the edges. Then, I die cut the scalloped circle and peeled off the release paper, and burnished in more Gypsy Red glitter with my finger tool. I layered this behind the sheep circle for more dimension. I also stamped out the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock, using Versamark Ink Pad, and then sprinkled on Silver Lightning embossing powder and heat set it. I trimmed it into a banner and adhered it at the base of the sheep.

Here is another photo of those cute sheet and their cute hooves! I love the red, pink, and gray together! I finished off the card with some die cut shapes. Layered it all up, and had a really fun card that can be a Valentine's Day type card, or a pick-me-up for anytime. The sentiments on this stamp set are very versatile and can fit a lot of occasions.

I know you will find many wonderful ways to use this stamp set. You will love it!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Build a Wreath {12.14.2016}

Today's card makes me so happy!! I used the new Build a Wreath digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Let's check it out.
I sized the wreath I wanted (there are four wreath options in this incredible digi stamp set) and chose one of the many sentiments and sized it to go inside the wreath. That is one of the benefits of a digi stamp set, you can really manipulate them to any size you want! I also sized some of the cherry blossoms, leaves, and the bow, then printed them out twice. I fussy cut out the blossoms, leaves, and bow, and partial die cut out the wreath with a circle die, leaving the bow tails uncut. I fussy cut around the bow tails sticking out of the edge of the circle that was die cut, and fussy cut out other bow pieces to add dimension. Once I had everything cut out, I rolled on some Nuvo Glue Pen Large adhesive to the bow pieces, and sprinkled on some Collegiate Garnet glitter. I layered up the bow pieces with dimensional tape to give dimension. Here is a close up of the bow. Look how beautiful that Collegiate Garnet glitter is! Be still my heart!!
For my background, I ran some pink cardstock through my Cuttlebug in a leaf embossing folder. I then lightly swept my Versamark Ink Pad over the raised portions of the cardstock, and sprinkled on some Pink Lady embossing powder, and heat set it. This gave the background additional texture, dimension, and some extra sparkle and pizazz :)
I adhered blossoms to the wreath, and added more dimension by adding foam dimensionals. I rolled on some Nuvo Glue Pen Fine adhesive to the wreath, flowers, and leaves, and sprinkled on two colors on the wreath: Peruvian Lily,and Rose Gold. I also added on Bubble Gum to the blossoms and Luau Green to the leaves. Here is a photo showing the wreath, cherry blossoms, and leaves.
Here is another shot of the card that shows some of the dimension. I have a thing for pink and for cherry blossoms, so this Build a Wreath digi stamp set was the perfect set to use for a pink fix! I love how versatile it is and how much you can do with it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a magical day!
