 Come along while I show you how it came together.
 
 
 
The large leaf image was stamped onto watercolor paper using the Tim Holtz's Stamping Platform.  The paper was left in the platform and colored using Nuvo Aquamarkers.  Once dry the image was stamped a second time using Versamark ink and embossed using Coffee embossing powder.  The leaf was then fussy cut out.
 
 
The borders was die cut using a Anna Griffin border die.  The outline border was die cut using sticker paper, the backing was removed and the die cut border was placed on top.  The sticky areas were then glittered using Tiger Orange glitter to create a pretty sparkly border piece for my card.  Small drops of Bottle Green Crystal Drops were added to the border. 
 
 
The sentiment was stamped with brown ink and glittered using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen and Bronze Splendor glitter.  Small leaves were punched using a punch from Fisker.

Good Times

 
Good afternoon all, today I would like to share my last card from Sparkle N Sprinkle's September Reveal!!  This card was created using the new Birdhouse Friends stamp set. 
 
 
 


To start my card I embossed a piece of white cardstock using the 3d Embossing Folders from Crafter's Companion.  These folders are so beautiful!!  Once embossed Cornflower Blue Mousse from Nuvo was applied to the raised areas using my finger.  These mousse are so pretty and shimmery and work perfectly with these embossing folders.
 




The flowers were die cut using dies from Heartfelt Creations and glittered using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and  Sunny Daze glitter.  Small drops of Bottle Green Crystal Drops were added to the centers.  They were placed on the card using foam dots.

Delight in the Beauty

Good morning everyone, I would to share a gatefold card with you today made using the digi Lovely Magnolia stamp set.  This beautiful stamp set is from Sparkle N Sprinkle and it comes in rubber as well.  Let me show you how it came together.
 

 
To create the gatefold base I used the beautiful Elizabeth die from Crafter's Companion.  Small drops of Pearl White Crystal Drops were added.
 
 


 Closer look at all of the detail on the edges.




The pretty magnolia was enlarged, printed and cut out using the Silhouette.  A shadow layer was also cut out using the Silhouette.  Sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Sunny Daze and Spirited Green glitter.
 



 
The sentiment was also enlarged, and the smaller magnolias were placed in the corner.  This was printed out and placed inside the card.  A strip of 1/2" tear-ific tape was placed along the edges and glittered using Sunny Daze glitter.
 
Hope you have enjoyed my digi gatefold card, I really had fun making it!!

Gentle Thoughts

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a wonderful start to your day!!  Today I would like to share a digi card with you using the new digi Lovely Magnolia stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Let me show you how it all came together.
 
 
 
 
To start the card I needed to create my background paper.  Using distress inks, water and paper towel this was create.
 


Ink a piece of watercolor paper using Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  Place a piece of paper towel on top and lightly mist with water.  Let sit for about 30 minutes.  Remove the paper towel and you have a beautiful piece of background paper.  I love the way the paper picks up the design of the paper towel.  Once dry I embossed the piece using a new Crafter's Companion 3d Embossing Folder. (sorry I forgot to take a picture)
 

 
 Once dry the piece was fussy cut around the outer edges of the embossing.  This was then used on the outside edges of the card.  Using my finger on the raised areas of the embossing Coral Calypso Mousse from Nuvo was added for a pretty soft shimmer.


 
The flower and sentiment was then sized, printed out and cut using the Silhouette.  Sparkle was added to the flower using the Small Glue Pen from Nuvo, Sparkling Snow and Spirited Green glitter.  The flower was placed on top of the card using foam dots.



 
Small drops of Strawberry Coulis Jewel Drops were placed on the embossing areas.

Hope you all are having fun with all the new stamp sets and enjoying the hop with all the beautiful project.  I choose to use the Victorian Camille at Christmas 864 for my project.  I had just received the Merry Christmas Header Die Set from Tonic and thought that would be a perfect choice for the beautiful image.  So lets get started on all the details!
 
 
 
 
To start my card I needed to make the background paper and choose the Lacey Glitter technique.  Using sticker paper, lace, Mermaid and Sassy Silver glitter the pretty sparkly background was created. The lace was placed on top of the sticky side of the sticker paper and covered with Mermaid glitter.  The glitter was burnish well with my finger and the access glitter was brushed off.  The sticker paper was then pulled away from the lace and I was left with a pretty blue lace background.  Next the remaining sticky areas were covered with Sassy Silver glitter, burnish well and brushed off to give me a beautiful background. 
 
 
I hope you can see all the beautiful sparkle!
 
 
The image was then printed using the color stamp.  Sparkle was added using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen, Sparkling Snow, Spirited Green, Evening Glow, Waterfall and Fire Engine Red glitter.  Small drops of White Blizzard Glitter drops were placed around this pretty girl along with small snowflakes punched using a Fisker punch.  Small drops of Ruby Slipper Glitter drops were placed on the berries.
 
 
The card base was die cut and die cut a second time using blue cardstock to created a shadow.  The background paper was adhered to the card front and the image was placed on top using foam tape.
 
 
The bottom half was die cut and a piece of blue cardstock placed behind the wording.  Using the small glue pen and Sparking Snow glitter for a little sparkle on the snowflakes.  Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were added.  A ribbon was created using the Lacey Background technique.  You can see a tutorial here on how to create this look with the Merry Christmas Header Fold Die Set. 
 
I hope you have a fun time on the blog hop, be sure to stop by all of the very talented designers and see their beautiful project!!

 The next stop on the SNS Blog Hop is ANNE!!
