This month's collections of stamps are just so cute and pretty!!  I couldn't wait to get started using them, hope you feel the same.  I chose to use the Iris Garden set this month.  It is just so pretty and could be used for some many different occasions. 

I stamped the images and fussy cut them out, colored with copic markers.  Sparkle was added using a glue pen and Sparkling Snow, Golden Silver and Spirited Green glitters.  Using the tutorial for stamping on glitter, I stamped the sentiment and punched it out using a oval punch.  A few pearls were added and the edges inked.

The window was die cut using the Grand Madison die.  I placed a 1/8" Tear-ific Tape along the window sill and glittered using Princess Anna Fuchsia glitter.

I created my background using my Gelli Plate, acrylic paint and stencils.  Embossing paste and a stencil added some dimension inside the window.  To add some sparkle I dusted the embossing paste with Sparkling Snow glitter.  The window was added to the card base using pop dots.  I placed the iris image on top of the window and added the window sill.  The small iris was placed on top of the window sill along with a pretty bow.  I added the sentiment with pop dots and pretty pearl accents were added along the edge of the card base. The cute butterfly is a brad by Recollections.

A closer look at the background paper.  The Gelli Plate is a wonderful way to create your own backgrounds.  You must try it!!  I placed a piece of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape along the edge of the cardstock remove the backing and glittered with Princess Ann Fuchsia glitter.

Santa Claus

Good morning everyone, hope you have had a wonderful week so far!!  I would like to share a layout I created a few weeks ago.  It features my beautiful grand babies and Santa!!

This was the first year my grandson Andy would sit on Santa's lap, and boy what a cute picture it was!!
I layered several strips of ribbon on the layout and layered the photo on top of them.  

The deer was die cut from chipboard using Tim Holtz's Deer in Flight Die.  The deer was stamped with SNS Journal Mixed Media stamp and inked with Coffee Bean ink.  The wreath was die cut using Elizabeth Craft Design's Holiday House. For the beautiful tree, I used the die and embossing folder from Anne Griffin.  The pretty sparkle was added using a glue pen and Golden Silver and Silver Dreams glitter.

Using super adhesive sheet I removed the backing and applied Cloud Nine glitter.  The Crystal Medallion images was stamped on top. You can find a tutorial Here for stamping on glitter.  The image was fussy cut out and placed under the photo layer.  For the pretty snowflake on top it was die cut using Anne Griffin die and glittered using brushable glue and Sparkling Snow glitter.

The title was cut using my Silhouette, and glittered using brushable glue and Fire Engine Red glitter.

I just love this picture, everyone is Smiling!!!  We very rarely get this to happened!!

Hope you have enjoyed my layout, thanks so much for stopping by, and remember.....Keep Stamping

Love And Kisses!

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are having a wonderful day!!  Thought I would share a Valentine's Day card with you that I just finished using the new Love and Kisses digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  This is such a cute set and can be used for many different occasions. 

I made a gate fold card, and used my new Anne Griffin Embossing Folder.  These folder and dies are so pretty I just couldn't wait to use them.  I placed a piece of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape on both sides of the front of the card and glittered using Fire Engine Red Glitter.  I embossed white CS using the Love Folder, I inked my brayer with versamark and rolled it on top of the embossed area, applied Firecracker Red EP Here is a great tutorial for this technique.  

I die cut the heart shape with Anne Griffin's die which is also new.  The heart was then embossed using the new heart folder from Anne Griffin.  The same ttechniquewas used to heat emboss the heart.

The image was printed and colored using copic markers.  I fussy cut the cut couple out and added some sparkle using a glue pen and Fire Engine Red glitter.  I punched some hearts and glittered them using Fire Engine Red glitter as well.

This set was just released last month at Sparkle N Sprinkle, hop on over to see all the beautiful glitters and EP.  If you love their products and would be interested in being a Guest Design Team Member please visit the blog for all the details on the Guest Design Team Call!!

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

Season's Greetings!!

Good morning everyone, hope your off to a great start to the new year!! I had to  share one last Christmas card using the Christmas Dove set!  I used the digital stamp for this card.

The image was printed onto white cardstock and colored with copic markers.  I then placed a piece of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape on top of the image.  Removed the backing and covered with Sparkling Snow glitter.  The image was then cut out.  

Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out a snow globe inked the globe with blue pigment ink.  The image was placed on the globe with pop dots.  I punched several small snowflakes using a Fisker snowflake punch.

Using 1/8" and 1/4" Tear-ific Tape on the bottom of the globe to create some sparkly strips.  For the 1/8" strip I removed the backing and covered it with Fascination glitter.  For the 1/4" strip I repeated the step using Silver Dreams glitter.  I cut a large snowflake with my Silhouette, using a brush and Brushable Glue the snowflake was glittered with Sparkling Snow glitter.  A small rhinestone was added to the middle.

To finish my card I embossed a piece of white CS with a snowflake embossing folder, printed the Season's Greeting out and inked the edges.  A small strip of Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh was added down the side of the card.

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