I just love all the new stamp sets!!  My little grand daughter thought the penguin in Under the Mistletoe was so cute so I knew I had to make something with it.  I decided on a tag and a card.  For the tag I made a snow globe.  The globe was embossed with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dot folder.  I also stamped the globe with the Snow One Like Me snowflakes and embossed with Tinsel EP.

I used the SNS Tutorial Coloring on Glitter on the penguin, he then was fussy cut out and place on the snow globe.  The edges of the snow globe were inked with blue ink and glittered using a brush, Brushable Glue and Sparkling Snow glitter.  The snowflakes were cut using Season of Joy Cricut Cartridge.  They were glittered using brushable glue, Sparkling Snow, Waterfall and Fascination glitter.

 For the card I used the Tutorial for Dry Embossing Flocking Technique for the background.

 I used Cuttlebug's Snowflake embossing folder,and Twinkling Clouds, for the background.  This really turns out so pretty.  For the sparkle around the edge of the card, I used 1/8" Tear-ific Tape remove the backing on the tape and apply Silver Dream Glitter.

 Another look at the background.

 For the image I stamped it with black ink and colored using copic markers.  On the white areas of the body and hat Dimensional Glue  and Twinkling Clouds were used for the "Sparkle".  I applied Liquid Glass to the ice cube and dusted lightly with Sparkling Snow glitter.  

Here a little sneak peek of a project to come using the Daisies Stamp Set.

Please stop back by to see the entire project!!

Good luck to you all the stamp sets are all beautiful!!!  Please be sure to visit all of the talented and amazing Designers, they all have some beautiful project to share with you.  

If you would like more details on how to make my tag or card please visit my SNS Gallery.

4th of July

Good evening all, hope you have had a wonderful weekend!!  I have my oldest grandson here for the month and we have really been having lots of fun!!  I have found time to make my 4th of July Mesh Deco Wreath.  I would like to share it with you.

These wreath are so much fun to make.  When I first looked at them I thought I could never make one!!  But to my surprise I did make one for Christmas and it turned out so pretty and was so easy to make I knew I would be making more of them.  

I bought these chipboard letters and glittered them using Sparkle N Sprinkle glitter.  They were attached to the wreath with a glue gun.  

Have a great week everyone!!  Thanks for stopping by and remember....Keep Stamping!!

Share The Memories

Good morning everyone, hope your week has been wonderful!!  I would like to share a layout that I gave you a sneak peek last week using the new Camera Life stamp set!!  

 Camera Life

This was a girl's weekend!!  All of us use to work together at a medical office.  We have since moved apart, one is in Maine, one is in Georgia, one is in Dallas and I am in Houston.  We still manage to get together and share some wonderful memories!!  This picture was taken on the Kemah Broadwalk in Kemah, TX.  There is so much laughter and talking.  We have FUN, FUN, FUN!!!
I thought this stamp set worked perfectly with this layout, we should focus on what's important wonderful friendships.

I also used the Travel Mixed Media stamp set it was just released this month also.  I stamped the camera 2 times and cut out the heart from one of the stamps.  It was glittered using Gypsy Red glitter and adhere to the camera using a pop dot. 

The background was created using stencils, watercolors, embossing paste and ink.
I applied embossing paste to the brick stencil and let it dry, once dry I inked the Journal Stamp from the Journal Mixed Media stamp set also new this month, with black ink and stamped lightly on the embossing paste.

The watermarks were stamped with brown ink.

The map was stamped with black ink and color with copic markers

Waterfall glitter was used to glitter the paper flowers!

If you would like more details on how to create this page, please visit my SNS Gallery!

I hope you have enjoyed my layout, and thanks again for stopping by.  Please be sure to visit the Sparkle N Sprinkle Online Store, to see all the new released stamp sets and wonderful products!!

Have a wonderful weekend, school is out so let the summer fun began, and remember.....Keep Stamping!!
