Each Day Always Holds Beautiful Moments

 Happy Monday all, hope you had a great weekend!!!  This morning I would like to share my last card using the new stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle's March Reveal, it is using the Bonnet Bouquet stamp set.  I did use both the rubber and digi stamps on this card.



 To start my easel card I used Spellbinder's Fancy Circle dies to cut the card base.  To create the pretty shimmer background paper I covered a piece of heavy cardstock with Nuvo Aquamarine Mousse,  Nuvo Lemon Sorbet Mousse and Nuvo Spring Green Mousse.  Once it was dry It was die cut with Spellbinder's Circle dies.  This really created a beautiful shimmery background for my card.  These mousses are so beautiful be sure to look them up in the SNS store!



Next the image was stamped on top of cardstock that had been prepped with clear gesso for water coloring.  The image was colored using Tombow markers and a aqua brush.  Once dry sparkle was added using Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Waterfall and Sunny Daze glitter. Drops of Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops were placed in the center of the flowers.  The image was fussy cut out and placed on top of the card front.  Small drops of Dandelion Crystal Drops were added around the fancy circle.


For the inside of the card I printed the flower and sentiment from the color digi set which I did enlarge.  The flower was cut using my Silhouette and the sentiment was fussy cut.  Glitter was added to the flower using the small glue pen, Spirited Green and Sunny Daze glitter.  Small drops of Ebony Black Crystal Drops were added to the flower.  


A look at the card closed!

Patriotic Layout

 
Good morning all, hope you are enjoying your day!!  Today I would like to share a layout with you using the new Patriotic Girlfriends stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  For this project I did you the digi set and enlarged them to fit my project.  Let's get started on the project.
 
 
As you can see the images are quite large that is the fun part of using digi.  Let me share a card using the actual rubber stamp so that you can see the difference.
 
 
You can really get creative with digi stamps and make then fit any project whether big or small.
 
 
To start the background layers for my layout, I embossed a piece of white cardstock with a Cuttlebug stars embossing folder.  The raised areas of the stars were covered with Nuvo Cornflower Blue Mousse.  This mousse is so pretty and shimmery!!
 


Next the fireworks were cut using svg files and my Silhouette.  They were cut from cardstock as well as sticker paper and glittered using Fire Engine Red, Colbalt Glaze, and Sassy Silver.  Small drops of Autumn Red Crystal Drops were placed in the center as well as on the star background layer. Small drops of the Autumn Red, Navy Blue and White Crystal Drops were used on the grey panel. 
 



The America title was also enlarged and printed using the color version of the stamp set.  It was cut out using my Silhouette and placed on the layout using foam dots.


 
Here you see these cute gals all ready for a parade, as were my grandchildren in the photos!!  They were enlarged, printed using the color version of the digi stamp and cut out using the Silhouette.  Sparkle was added to them using Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  They were placed on the layout using foam tape. 
 
As you can see digi stamps are so versatile in that they can be sized to fit any project.  You can print either the color version are the black and white and color yourself.  Be sure to hop on over to Sparkle N Sprinkle to see all of the digi stamp sets!!

Hope you all are having a fun time on the blog hop!!  There are so many amazing stamp sets this month, as well as the digi pack.  I have loved playing with many of them this month.  For this month's reveal I chose the Patriotic Girls stamp set and a starburst background.  Come along and let me show you how it was created.



To start the background I used left over papers and cut them in 1" and 2" strips.  You will cut them in a diagonal. Once the strips are cut I layered them on top of sticker paper, starting in the middle.



Continue layering around the sticker paper.  Once you have completed the background, you will cut off any excess paper.


Once all the strip have been cut cover the remain sticky parts with Sparkling Snow glitter.  You can find a tutorial HERE on this technique.



Next I stamped the image with black ink colored with copic makers and added glitter using Nuvo's Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  They were then fussy cut out and were layered on top of a circle die cut using Spellbinders Circle dies.





The edge of the blue and red cardstock were lined with 1/8" Tear-ific Tape the protective backing was removed and glittered using Fire Engine Red and Denim glitters.



The sentiment was stamped using the Patriotic Icons stamp set along with versamark and embossed with White Detail EP.  I really loved how this turned out.  I have also completed a scrapbook layout using the digi version of this stamp set.  I will leave you with a sneak peek of it.  I would love for you to stop back by to see the complete project!





Thanks so much for stopping by have fun on the blog next stop is the very talented ANNE!!

Have a Beautiful Day!

Good afternoon all, hope you all are having a beautiful day!!  Today I would like to share my card from Sparkle N Sprinkle's February reveal it is using the Leafy Flower Spring Wreath.  Let's get started.



The lattice piece was die cut using Spellbinder's Lattice die cut.  

To start my background I used Emerald Green Glimmer Paste and covered my cardstock.  It needed to dry about 30 minutes.
  

Once dry I had a very sparkly background for my card.



The lattice frame was placed on top of the background paper using foam dots.  Next the wreath image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using copic makers.



Sparkle was added to the wreath using Nuvo Small Glue Pen along with Sparkling Snow, Spirited Green and Pinkerbell glitter.  The wreath was fussy cut out and adhered to the background using foam dots.


The sentiment was stamped with versamark and embossed using Rosa EP.  It was die cut using Eastern Oyster Layering Basics Dies.  The edges were inked and small drops of Key Lime Jewel Drops were placed on the corners.  

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day and remember.....Keep Stamping!!

A Good Friend is Like a Four Leaf Clover


Happy Monday to everyone!  As we approach March I would like to share a St. Patrick's Day card with you using the new digi Luck of the Irish Enchantress stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  This is such a cute stamp set!!  Let's get started on how this all came together.




To create the pretty background I used a Prima stencil and Nuvo's Emerald Green Glimmer Paste.



Using a palette knife I covered the cardstock with the glimmer paste.  Removed the stencil and let dry.


Here is the finished background paper.  The glimmer pastes are so pretty and there are so many ways to use them.  I hope you will check out all the colors over at the SNS store.



Next I printed the color images and cut them out using my Silhouette.  Sparkle was and added  using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Spirited Green, Evening Glow, and Sparkling Snow. I used Spellbinder's Fancy Ovals and die cut the larger die for a frame for my image to rest on.  A smaller oval was die cut from sticker paper and glittered using Lady Luck.  The two ovals were then layered together and the image placed on top using foam tape.  Small drops of Dandelion Crystal Drops were placed on the small shamrocks. For the large ones Pale Gold Crystal Drops were added to the centers.



The sentiment was also printed and adhered to the card using foam tape.

I would like to thank you for stopping by hope you have enjoyed my card as much as I did making it!! 

Have a wonderful day and remember.....Keep Stamping!!
