Bloom


Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Hope you are having a fun day, I would like to share a fun shadow box card with you today using the new Happy Flowers stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The digi papers from this set were also used to create the card.  Let me show you have this all came together!!



First I printed off the designer paper from the digi bundle onto a 8.25" x 11" piece of cardstock.  The paper was then cut twice to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and each end was scored at 1/2" and 1".  The ends were then valley folded to create the card.  The front piece was die cut using the Tonic Eastern Oyster dies. Here is a tutorial on how to create this shadow box card.


The sweet flowers were stamped with Desert Sand Memento ink and colored using Tombox markers.  Sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen along with Sparkling Snow and Spirited Green glitter.  The grass was die cut using Elizabeth Craft Outdoor Edges die from left over paper that had been covered with Peridot Green Glimmer Paste.  


The sentiment was stamped using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and glittered with Waterfall glitter using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen right over top of the ink.  Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were added under the sentiment.  The sentiment was die cut using the Tonic Eastern Oyster Dies.


The butterflies were made using a piece of cardstock that had been covered with a piece of 2 1/2 Tear-ific Tape.  The backing was removed and the cardstock was covered with Cloud Nine glitter.  The butterflies were stamped using StazOn ink using the Corner Garden stamp set. Once the ink is dry the butterflies were colored using Tombow markers.  Fussy cut out the butterflies and placed them on the card.  


Hope you have enjoyed my project.  This is a really fun card to make and so pretty when finished!  

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

True Beauty


Good morning all hope your Wednesday is off to a great start!!!  Today I will be sharing a card with you using the newly released and oh so beautiful True Beauty stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Let's get started!





First using the new Elizabeth Die from Crafter's Companion the black layer was die cut.  This created a beautiful top for my card.  Small drops of Purple Rain Glitter Drops were placed on the die.
Next I needed to create the background layers using Blue Topaz and Tanzanite Lavender Glimmer Paste.  Covering pieces of cardstock with the glimmer paste and a craft knife.  This will need to dry for serveral minutes.  Once dry the edges were torn and adhered to the card base.  This really created a pretty shimmer for my card background.



Next the beautiful peacock was stamped with versamark twice and embossed using Peacock EP.  One of the image was die cut using Spellbinders Oval die and colored with copic markers. Sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Waterfall glitter.  Drops of Purple Rain Glitter Drops were placed on both images.  The die cut images was placed on top of the 2nd image using foam dots.  Glue was added to the edges of the oval using the Nuvo Medium Glue Pen and glittered using Orchid glitter.  Drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were placed around the oval.  



The sentiment was stamped and die cut using the small oval die from Spellbinders.  The edges were glittered using the Medium Glue Pen and Orchid glitter.  The leaves were die cut using a Sizzix die and placed around the sentiment oval and larger oval.

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

Well I hope you are enjoying the blog hop, don't you just love all the beautiful stamp sets and those beautiful digi papers!!!  I decided on  Kaitlyn Mermaid  (digi version DIGI847LS) for my project.  I thought how cute she would look inside a shell so I went to work looking through my svg files and came across this cute shell card.  It work perfectly to create my pop up card for this cute little mermaid!!  Let me show you how it all came together.

This is a look at the card closed!



First the card was cut using white cardstock and the layering pieces was cut using the digi paper bundle set.  I just love these beautiful papers.  For the front of the card leaves were die cut from a Sizzix leaf die.  The shell layer was glittered along the edges using the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen and Waterfall glitter.  The sentiment was printed, the edges were inked using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  The edges were also glittered using the same glue pen and glitter.  Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops.  



The sweet little image was  resized, printed using the color stamp and cut out using the Silhouette.  Next it was time to make her sparkle!!!  I used the Small Nuvo Glue Pen along with Waterfall, Sunny Daze, Sparkling Snow and Fuschia Glass Glitter.  For the edges of the shell layer Waterfall glitter was also used.  Small drops of Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops were also used.  


The sentiment for the inside of the card was printed out and die cut using the Fancy Label die from Sizzix,  The back layer of the label was cut using sticker paper, the second layer was placed on top of the sticker paper and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  The edges of the oval was inked and glittered using medium glue pen and Waterfall glitter.  Small pearls and left over leaves were added.  



 I just love this sweet little mermaid and my grand daughter loved her too!!  I hope you have enjoyed my project I really had fun putting it together.

Blessed


Good morning all, today I am going to share the layout that I promised yesterday!!  I will be using the same Corner Garden stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The images were all enlarged to fix the layout.  It is so much fun using the digi stamps as they can be made as large or small as needed.  Lets' get started on all the details!



First the images were sized and printed out using the color set.  They were cut out using the Silhouette.  Using Anna Griffin's new  Border Dies to cut all the die cuts out.


The frame die is also from Anna Griffin.  Once the die was cut out I placed Pink Opal Glimmer Paste on top.  This really gave a pretty sparkle!


Here you can see how pretty the digi stamps are, they were enlarged quite a bit to fit the layout.  The larger flower was cut twice to add dimension. Sparkle was added to all of the flowers using the Small Nuvo Glue PenSpirited GreenWaterfall, Bubblegum and Sunny Daze glitter.   The butterfly was stamped using the rubber stamp set and the color on glitter technique. The strips of white cardstock were embossed using a Anna Griffin embossing folder and shimmer was added using Peony Pink, Aquamarine, Spring Green and Lemon Sorbet Mousse.  



The digi butterfly was also enlarged using the color stamp.  Sparkle was added using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen, Bubblegum, Orchid, Lavender Iris and Sparkling Snow glitter.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the body of the butterfly.


This die cut is so beautiful, the backing was die cut twice once from sticker paper and once from a dark purple cardstock.  The scalloped piece was placed on top of the sticker paper and the sticky areas were covered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  They were layered together and placed behind the photo.


The bow and sentiment was also cut using Anna Griffin dies.  For the bow I covered a piece of pink cardstock with the Pink Opal Glimmer Paste for a pretty soft sparkle.  

I hope you have enjoyed this layout!!!  Using the digi stamps on your layout is so much fun they can be sized to fit any space on your layouts or cards.  Please stop by the Sparkle N Sprinkle store to see all of the amazing products!!

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

Corner Garden

Good morning all and happy Wednesday!  I would like to share a card that was made using only the digi stamp set from the Corner Garden.  What a beautiful set, it is so pretty and can be used so many ways.  I have also created a layout using this set that I will share with you tomorrow.   Let's get started on this project.
 
 

First all of the images were sized and cut out using my Silhouette with the color digi stamps.  The larger flower was cut a second time and layered on top of the corner image.  Sparkle was added to all of the flowers using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen, Spirited Green, Waterfall, Bubblegum and Sunny Daze glitter.  The background paper was printed using the digi papers also included in this set. The paper was lightly misted using Tattered Angels Pearl Mist to give a soft shimmer.  Next the lattice frame was die cut using a Anna Griffin die.  The corner unit was placed on top of the frame and the frame was adhered to the background paper using foam dots.  Small drops of Dazzling Blue Glitter Drops were placed in the corners.
 
The butterfly was printed out twice and layered together using foam tape.  For the sparkle the Small Nuvo Glue Pen was used along with Bubblegum, Lavender Iris, Orchid and Sparkle Snow glitters.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the middle of the body.




The digital papers in the set are just gorgeous!!! 

Here is a quick peek at my layout using the same stamps, be sure to stop back by on Thursday to see all the details!

Every Flower



Good morning all hope you are having a wonderful day.  Today I will share with you a card using the new Corner Garden rubber and digi stamp set.  Come along as I show you how this all came together!



For the layers of my card I used 3 different colors of cardstock , on the white layer strips of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape was used on the edges and Waterfall glitter.  This really gave my card base a pretty sparkle.



To start my card I printed the flower set using the color version.  It was then cut out using the Silhouette.  I did print and cut it a second time to layer on top of some of the flowers using foam dots.  Glitter was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Waterfall, BubblegumDaisy, Orchid, and Margarita.  Small Drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the swirls.




Next the sentiment was stamped using the rubber stamp set.  Waterfall glitter was added to the letters using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen.


The butterflies were stamped with StazOn ink onto a piece of cardstock that was covered with a strip of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape backing removed and glittered using Cloud Nine glitter.  The butterflies were then colored using the Tombow markers.  They were fussy cut out and placed on the card using foam dots.


Digi stamps are so much fun to play around with and can be used along with the rubber stamps on your project!!!  

Be sure to hop over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle store to see all the new products!!
