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!
