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!!

Get Well Wishes

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!! This morning I want to share a project with you using the new Pansies stamp set.  Today's project will use the digi stamp along with the beautiful digi papers and the rubber stamp.  Let's get started on how this came together.


To start my project I printed out the color images and cut them out using my Silhouette.  I did cut multiples of the flowers so that they could be layered using foam dots.  


Once the flowers were cut out and layered on top of the main image, I printed out the beautiful watercolor papers.  These papers are so beautiful!!  The background papers were then layered on top of white cardstock with a strip of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape along the edges.  

The sentiment was stamped using the rubber stamp.  Small drops of Purple Rain Glitter Drops were placed on the top and bottom corners. The edges were then glittered using Purple Rain glitter.


Closer look at the layering of the flowers.  Sparkle was added using Nuvo's Small Glue Pen, Sparkling Snow and Spirited Green glitter. Small drops of Dandelion Crystal Drops was placed in the flower centers.

Hope you all are enjoying the blog hop!!  This month's stamp set are just so pretty!  I choose the Teacup Pansies set from my project.  Let's get started on how it came together.



To start my project I stamped my images with black ink and embossed with Clear EP.   The image was stamped a 2nd time and I cut out the flowers they were placed on top of the image using foam dots.  The pansies and cup was colored with copic makers and glitter using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Waterfall, and Sparkling Snow glitter.  A small circle was cut out of sticker paper using Spellbinder's Circle dies and glittered with Waterfall glitter.  The images were all fussy cut out.  The card base was embossed using a Anne Griffin embossing folder.   Using my finger Nuvo's Pure Platinum Mousse was placed on top of the raised areas.  I then came back with the Aquamarine Mousse.  I hope you can see the two colors together they are really pretty. A strip of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape was placed on the edge of the bottom layer and glittered using Hyacinth glitter.


The border piece was die cut using Tonic Moroccan Mosaic Simply Screen dies.  It was die cut from purple cardstock placed on top of sticker paper and the openings were glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  The sentiment was stamped with versamark and embossed using VenusViolet EP.  
The edges of a piece of blue cardstock was inked with versamark and embossed using the new Robin's Egg EP.  This really created a pretty layer from my project.



Small drops of Ebony Black Crystal drops were placed on the cup.  Once the drops were dry the entire cup was covered with Glossy Accents to give a look of glass.  Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops were placed in the center of the flowers.  


The image was then placed on top of the white circle using foam dots.  


The smaller flowers were adhere to the top and bottom of the glittered circle.

Happy St. Patrick's Day


Good morning everyone, the weekend is almost here and my oldest grandson will be here for a visit.  It's always fun when he visits!!!  Today I would like to share a St. Paddy's Day card with you using the new digi Edward the Elephant #1 stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.



To start my project I needed to create the background.  I didn't have a clover stencil so I looked at my Silhouette files and found one cut it out and create my own stencil.  It was then placed and tape on top of my cardstock and covered with Emerald Green Glimmer Paste from Nuvo.



Use a palette knife and cover the stencil with the glimmer paste. Cover the entire stencil with the glimmer paste.  Once finished remove the stencil and allow to dry.


The end results is so beautiful and can be done with any stencil and paste.


Next I resized and printed out Edward using the color version of the stamp set.  This was cut out using my Silhouette.  Edward needed a bit of sparkle and that was added using the new Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Spirited Green, Sparkling Snow, Waterfall, and Evening Glow glitter. Small drops of Pale Gold Crystal Drops were added to the background and sentiment.  


Glitter was added to the sentiment using the glue pen and Aztec Gold glitter.  A strip of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape was placed around the card base layer and glittered using the Aztec Gold glitter.

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