Sparkle N Sprinkle: Happy Flowers {05.10.2017}

Check out this new stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle for their May release! I used Happy Flowers stamp set ... I stamped it multiple times to make a row of flowers with some strategic masking. Here is my fun and happy card full of flowers! 

I stamped the flower stamp, masked them, and stamped some more. After I stamped out the flowers, I colored the leaves and flowers, and then sparkled them up with glitters! I used the Nuvo Glue Pen Small tip pen to roll out adhesive onto the flowers and leaves. I used Misty Isles glitter on the leaves, and Ballerina glitter on the flowers. Here is a close up of the row of flowers and all their bling! 

And, a better close up of the flowers. I colored them with two distress ink colors, but the Ballerina glitter really made them pop! I adhered some with foam tape to add more dimension. 

The sentiment was a lot of fun. I treated my cardstock with my Anti Static Bag, and then stamped out the sentiment in Versamark Ink and sprinkled on Concord embossing powder. I heat set it and then die cut into a circle and blended some light purple distress ink while the die was still in place. Then, I cut a strip of 1/2" Double-sided "Tear-ific" Tape, and made a glitter ribbon. I dredged the tape strip through Hanauma Bay glitter. Then, I peeled off the release paper from the other side of the "Tear-ific" Tape and dredged it through the glitter pile again, and burnished in the glitter. This made a cool glitter ribbon! I also applied more "Tear-ific" Tape to the back of the sentiment circle. I adhered the glitter ribbon by pushing it into the tape on the back, and followed around the edge of the circle and made a bit of a rosette by bunching up the glitter ribbon as I went along. This is really easy and fun to do! Check it out! 

I die cut my cardstock panel after I stamped the flowers (and before I added the dimension and glitters). I framed it onto the cardstock base. I covered the edges of the front of the cardstock base with 1-1/2" Double-sided "Tear-ific" Tape and pressed the card panel into the tape. Then, I burnished in Lacy Lilac glitter which really made the white card panel pop! And, oh la la, that Lacy Lilac glitter is so gorgeous! I also added a drop of Carnation Pink Crystal Drops to the corners of the panel, and doodled inside the open loops in the sentiment too. Just for more fun! 

This was a really fun card to make. I love this stamp set and see it getting a lot of use in the future! I hope you enjoyed this card too. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

  1. oooooooooooooh! How BEAUTIFUL! Sparkling purple to set the stage of your pretty purple posies. Your die cut is one of my faves - it's a fantastic shape, isn't it? The photography is REALLY GREAT! I can no longer achieve that sparkle - I think my "auto" cameras in my devices are designed to remedy what the cameras imagine is a boo boo LOL

    Glittery, handmade ribbon, detailed fussy cutting, and a gorgeous garden all contribute to your delightful masterpiece, Chris. Happy Wednesday! hugs, de
