Christmas Candles

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!!  We are enjoying some cool fall weather here in Houston, TX!!!  I would like to share a Christmas card with you today using the new Christmas Candle stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I started my card by embossing the green cardstock using a Anna Griffin embossing folder.  Using my finger on the raised embossed areas Platinum Mousse was added to give that pretty shimmer.  The frame is also from a embossing folder from Anna Griffin that was cut around and glittered using Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  Nuvo Cooper Gliding Flakes was applied to the lattice die.  I used the large Nuvo Glue Pen on the die cut let it dry slightly and then applied the flakes.  I really love how pretty this turned out!!


Next the rose image was stamped and colored using copic markers.  Sparkle was added using a glue pen, Sparkling Snow, Champagne, Sunny Daze and Green Iris. The image was then fussy cut out.  On the red berries Clear Crystal Drops were applied.  Next I applied Cloud Nine glitter on top of a piece of super adhesive sheet stamped the candles and colored with copic makers.  They were fussy cut out and placed behind the rose.  

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

O Christmas Tree

Good morning everyone, hope your day is off to a great start!!!  I hope you were able to join the Sparkle N Sprinkle October 1st Reveal, and see all the new stamp sets for this month.  Today I would like to share a card with you using the new Christmas Tag #1 stamp set, Tear-ific Tape and lots of Glitter!!

This card has so much sparkle!!!  Let me show you how that was achieved.

The plaid background was started using Fire Engine Red, Champagne, Elegant Emerald glitter and Tear-ific Tape.

 Strips of 1/2 Tear-ific Tape were placed on my cardstock.  The backing was removed and Fire Engine Red glitter was applied, burnish well with my finger.  The excess glitter was brushed off.

Next 1/4" Tear-ific Tape was placed on top of the 1/2" tape. 

The backing was removed and Elegant Emerald glitter was applied.  Repeating the steps.

More strips of 1/4" and 1/8" Tear-ific Tape were added.

The backing was removed and glittered using Champagne glitter.  

This background turned out so beautiful and was perfect for my stamped image.  The image was stamped with versamark and embossed using Golden Sparkle EP.  The image was stamped a 2nd time, embossed and the tree was fussy cut out.  Using Nuvo Glue Pen glitter was added to the tree and numbers. The pretty snowflake is a Heartfelt Creations die from the Snow Kissed Collections.  The image was placed on top of the snowflake using pop dots, and the tree was placed on top of the main image tree using a pop dot.

Hope you are having fun on the blog hop!!  The stamp sets this month are amazing, and I had a blast playing with them all!!!  I used the digi Turkey Dish for my step card.

To start the back panel

I used a piece of sticker paper, Dreamweaver stencil and coconut soap.  Place the stencil on top of the sticker paper after rubbing the back with the soap.  The soap will help the stencil to come off easier.  Starting with the lightest glitter Sunny Daze, then Sunset glitter was added.  With each glitter I burnish well with my finger then the stencil was turned upside down to remove the excess glitter before the next glitter.  I brushed well with the glitter brush to remove any excess glitter.  Being very careful the stencil was removed and the remaining sticky areas were covered with Bronze Splendor and burnish well with the finger tool.  The excess glitter was brushed off.  Here is a tutorial on this technique.

 The background is just beautiful and so sparkly!!

The images were printed off, I used the color option.  Sparkle was added to her using a Nuvo Glue Pen, Sunset, Spirited Green, Dazzling Rose, Sassy Silver, Golden Silver and Sunny Daze glitter.  Ebony Black Crystal Drops were placed on top of the black dots.  I covered her glasses with dimensional glue, which dries clear and gave the look of glass.  She was then fussy cut out. For the background panel I used a Sizzix leaf embossing folder.  Nuvo Mother of Pearl Mousse was applied to the raised areas using my finger.  This really gave a pretty look to the leaves.

The sentiments were printed and punched using Fisker's Oval and Scalloped punches.  The edges were inked with Spiced Marmalade ink, small dots of Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were added to the edges.  Small leaves were punched and applied to the ovals.  A strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape was placed on top of the bottom panel the protective backing was removed and a strip of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape was placed on top.  The 1/2" strip was covered with Sunset glitter burnish well and brushed off. The backing of the 1/4" strip was removed and covered with Bronze Splendor glitter repeating the steps.  

To finished off the top of the card vellum leaves were punched and inked with Spiced Marmalade ink.  They were placed on the top of the card along with an acorn and a Pull Ribbon bow.  

I will leave you with a sneak peek of project to come!!!  I hope you will stop back by to see all the details.

Stella Call Me Witch

Good morning all, hope you had a fabulous weekend!!  Since Halloween is just around the corner September has just flown bye!  I would like to share a card with you, using the new Stella Call Me Witch digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I came across a paper pack at Michael's that is all laser cut paper from Recollections (5x7).  I thought how cute the spiders and spider webs would go with the stamp.  

To create the background I placed a piece of super adhesive sheet on top of a piece of cardstock.  Removed the protective backing andplaced the laser cut piece on top.  Using the backing sheet on top of the laser cut I rubbed all around to make sure the piece was adhere well.  Next Parisian Mist
 was sprinkled on top of the sticky areas and burnish well with the finger tool.  The background was brushed well to remove any excess glitter.  I just loved how pretty and sparkly this turned out.  Small dots of White Crystal Drops were placed in the center of the spider webs.

Stella was then resized and printed out.  I used the color option .  Using the new Nuvo Glue Pen sparkle was added.  The glitter used on her is Golden Silver for the star, Hyacinth for her dress, Orange Surprise on her hat and Black Ice on shoes and dress.  For her hair Twinkling Clouds flock was used.  To create the look of glass on her glasses I filled in the area with dimensional glue.

The spider web was die cut using a Anne Griffin die and sticker paper.  The protective backing was removed and Sparkling Snow glitter was applied.  For the center I added a dot of Ebony Crystal Drop and a small dot of White Crystal Drops.  

The cute little spider was also die cut using a Anne Griffin die from sticker paper and glittering it with Sassy Silver glitter.  Small red rhinestones was red for his eyes.  To create the web he is hanging from I used a piece of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape removed the backing, twisted it and applied Twinkling Clouds. Here you can find a tutorial on how to create the ribbon using tape and glitter, it is from the January Video Kit Club  The sentiment was printed die cut using Sizzix's Funky Labels, while the setiment was still in the die glue was applied using Nuvo Glue Pen.  The edges were then glittered using Orange Surprise.

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

Give Thanks

Good morning all, hope you all are having a good Wednesday!  This morning I would like to share a card with you using the Fruit Note (digi) stamp.  This is a beautiful image, just perfect for your Thanksgiving cards!!

Fruit Note

The image was printed off using the colored digi.  I did resize the image slightly.  Using the new Nuvo Glue Pen, along with Fairy Tale Lavender, Sunny Daze and Sunset the sparkly was added.  The background was created using a leaf embossing folder from Sizzix.  The cardstock  was then layered together slightly offset.  Using Nuvo's Glue Pen and Sunset glitter around the edges of the card base.

Fruit Note

The sentiment was printed and die cut using Sizzix's Funky Label dies.  The edges were inked and placed on the card using foam dots.

Fruit Note

Leaves were cut using svg files and my Silhouette.  They were inked with Bamboo Leaves and Spiced Marmalade.  Small leaves were punched using a Fisker punch.  To finish off I added bows behind the leaves and to the bottom.  This is a really simple card using the colored digi images, but with a little glitter and sparkle it turned out so beautiful!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy your day and remember....Keep Stamping!!
