Will Do Tricks for Treats

Good morning all, hope you day has started off great!!  Today I am sharing a easel card using the new Puppy Halloween stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Let's get started!
 
 


To start the card the spider web was die cut using Anne Griffin's die.  It was die cut twice using the mirror cardstock.  The black web was placed on top of sticker paper with the backing removed and sparkle was added to the web using Silver Dreams glitter.  The silver web was placed on top of the black cardstock using the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive glue.
 



This is a look at what the card looks like closed!
 



The cute little dog was stamped in black ink and heat embossed using Clear EP.  The image was colored using Nuvo Aqua Markers.  Using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Twinkling Cloud and Elephant flocking was placed on the puppy.  The hat had sparkle added using the glue pen, Orichd and Purple Rain glitter.  The buckle on the hat had glitter added using the glue pen and Sunny Daze glitter.  The image was fussy cute out and placed on the card front using foam dots.
 
 



The spider was die cut using a Anna Griffin die.  Small drops of the Deluxe Adhesive was placed on the eyes and glittered using Fire Engine Red glitter. 
 



The sentiment was stamped with purple ink and glittered using the small glue pen and Orchid glitter.  The frame was die cut using a Spellbinders Circle die and sticker paper.  The backing was removed and glittered using Purple Rain glitter.  The sentiment was placed on the web using foam dots.

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!!

Have a Beautiful Day


Good afternoon all sorry for the late post, but the internet has been out due to Hurricane Harvey!  We are all fine, but so many of my neighbors and fellow Houstonians are not, prayers to them all. 
Today I would like to share an easel card using the digi Four Seasons stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  





The card base was cut using Spellbinders Scallop Circle dies.  The second layer was die cut and embossed using the new 3d Embossing Folder from Crafter's Companion.  The raised area was then colored using the Aquamarine and Coral Calpyso mousse from Nuvo. Small drops of Morning Dew Crystal Drops were added to the embossing areas.
 
  
 
 
 
 
This is a look at the card closed.
 
 
 
The image was printed using the color stamp set and cut out using the Silhouette.  Sparkle was added using a small glue pen from Nuvo along with Sterling, Orange Crush and Spirited Green glitter.  The bow was printed a second time and cut out using the Silhouette.  It was placed on top using foam dots.
 
 
 
The single flower and leaves were printed using the color stamp cut out using the Silhouette and glittered using the small glue pen along with Orange Crush and Spirited Green glitter.  They were placed on top of the labels die cut using the Eastern Oyster Layering Dies using foam tape.

Happy Holidays


Good morning all, it has been a crazy weekend here in Houston!!!  We have had so much rain water almost in my home! 
here this morning with a Christmas Card using the Christmas Spirit Fairy stamp set.  This stamp is only available in digi.  She is really pretty and you get 2 color images and a black and white image which you can color.  Let me show you how my step card came together.
 

To start the project I printed out the background paper using the Winter Greetings digi papers.  The card base was made using this template.

The digi papers panels were then cut and adhered to the card base.
 
 

 
 The pretty fairy was then sized and printed out using the color image.  Small drops of Morning Dew Crystal Drops were added to the dots.  Sparkle was added to the image using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Pinkerbell, Mermaid and Spirited Green glitter.  Small drop of Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops was placed on the center of the poinsettias.
 
.
 
The snowflakes were stamped with Bahama Blue Memento ink using the Crystal Snowflake stamp set.  Mermaid glitter was placed on the snowflake using the small glue pen.  They were placed on the card using form dots.

 
 

A strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape was placed on the card front backing removed and glittered using Mermaid glitter.  The sentiment was printed out and punched with a label punch.


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

So Grateful

 
 
Good morning all,  hope your day is going great  Today I would like to share a project with you using the new Basket of Hope stamp set and a pretty background technique.  Let's get started on all the details.

 

 To create the background for this project I used watercolor paper and distress inks.  The paper was covered with the distress inks using a blending tool.  Next I took a piece of paper towel and misted it with water.  The wet towel was placed on top of the paper and let sit on top for 30 minutes. 

 

 The paper towel was removed and the background was revealed.  I love how the design on the paper towel was transferred to the background paper.  The inks blending together so pretty!

 


The sentiment was then stamped onto the background paper using Dust Rust Chalk Ink.  A little sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Bronze Splendor glitter.


 

 The image was then stamped on to watercolor paper using the Tim Holtz's Platform and
StazOn ink.  The image was colored on the platform using Nuvo Aqua Markers.  Once the  colors were dry, I re stamped the image using versamark and heated embossing with Coffee EP.  That is the fun of using the platform you can re stamp as many times as you like.  The embossing over the watercolors looked so pretty!  The image was then fussy cut out.

 

 Using a piece of fall ribbon I placed a strip of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape in the middle and removed the backing.  Sparkle was added to the ribbon using Creamsicle and Bronze Splendor glitter.  Small drops of Bottle Green Crystal Drops were added.


 

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

 Hi all, hope you are loving this month's reveal!!  There are so many beautiful and fun stamp sets as well as the beautiful paper bundle.  I used the digi Dream Catcher Maiden and the Saguaro Desert Landscape Paper Pack for my project.  Let's get started on how this came together, I just love how pretty it is!!
 
 
 
 The sentiment was placed on the paper before I printed it out.  Once printed sparkle was added to the cacti using the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen and Starfire glitter.  Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were added.  The background paper was layered onto cardstock and a small line of glue using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen was placed along the edges and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.
 


Using the digi color stamp the cute maiden was sized, printed and cut out using the Silhouette.  I cut a shadow piece using black cardstock to really show off the beauty of this stamp.  Sparkle was added using the Small Glue Pen, Sparkling Snow, Starfire, Waterfall, Evening Glow, Spirited Green, The Beach, Aqua Marine, Hyacinth, and Bubblegum glitter.  The image was placed on the shadow piece using foam dots and then onto the background paper using foam dots.  Feathers were placed behind the image.  Small dots of Ebony Black Crystal Drops were also used on the maiden.
 
 

 
Glue was placed on the word dream using the Small Glue Pen and glittered using Black Suede glitter.
 
I just love how pretty and sparkly this card turned out.  You can really create beautiful projects using the digi stamps and paper.  I hope you will give it a try!!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by, have fun on the blog hop!
 
Your next stop is the very talented Eret.


Have a Nice Day

Good afternoon all, hope you had a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!!
Today I would like to share with you a card made using masking technique with a really cool layering stamp set from Hampton Arts. If you haven't visited the new SNS website lately, you might not know that Sparkle N Sprinkle also sells a nice selection of Hampton Art, Stampendous, House Mouse, and Tonic Studios rubber stamps
 


To create the background I used Color Burst and water on watercolor paper.


 
The paper was then misted to create a really beautiful background.


Once misted this is what I had.  I lightly rolled a roll of paper towel on top to pick up the water.

 
Once dry this is how it looked, I was really pleased.  The next step was to stamp the fern image using Memento Cottage Ivy and heat emboss using Clear EP



Next the flamingo was stamped several times using Memento Lady Bug and Picked Raspberry Distress ink.  I continue stamping with the inks until I achieved the look I was going far.  The image was then fussy cut out.
 

 
 I stamped the pineapple and flower images out once and fussy cut them out to do the masking technique.  The images were then stamped using the mask to create this pretty panel.  The small flowers were placed on the panel using foam dots as well as the flamingo.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink using the Tropical Stamp and heat embossed with Clear EP. Sparkle was added using the small Nuvo Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.
 

 
The masking technique is really fun and works great with these layering stamps.  I hope you will give it a try here you can find a tutorial using this technique.
