I have had so much fun with this challenge, I love getting surprises and my bag was full of great surprises!!  This is what I came up with using the Cherry Blossom stencil, embossing paste, glitter, svg files and the Fan Geisha stamp set.

To start my card I decided on a swing card, tutorial on how to make found HERE.

For the front of the card, I used the Cherry Blossom stencil with Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste.  I decided that I wanted the paste a pale pink color, so I used a small amount of pink gelatos and mixed it with the paste. While the paste was wet I lightly dusted with Sparkling Snow glitter for that bit of sparkle.  Next the center panel was embossed using Anna Griffin embossing folder.   Silver sparkle was added around the panel using a glue pen and Reflection glitter.  

The fan was cut from a svg file using the Silhouette.  I placed strips of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape on the back of the fan openings and glittered using, Peruvian LilyFlirt and ParisianMist glitter.  A small gold bead was placed on the handle.

 A small flower and leaves were die cut and inked with distress inks.  For a little sparkle on the flower I used a paint brush, brushable glue and Sparkling Snow glitter.  A small pearl was placed in the center.

 A look at the card from the other side.

The image was colored using copic markers.  The sparkle was added using a glue pen, Daisy, Spirited Green and Champagne glitter.  Using a glue pen along with Sparkling Snow sparkle was added to the edges of the image panel.

The sentiment was stamped with versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP.

One last look at the card opened to the back panel.  

I'm leaving you with a peek of the other 3 projects of mine using the goodies in our surprise bag.  Hope you will check back to see the reveal of them.

Birthday Queen

Good morning everyone I would like to share an easel card with you this morning. It was  made for a sweet little girl in my Sunday School class, using the newly released digi Birthday Queen stamp set.  She is so cute and perfect for a little girl's birthday!

Sweet Birthday

I choose to re sized the stamp to fit my Spellbinder's Fancy Ovals dies.  That is the fun of digi, you can make them any size to fit your project.  Once the image was printed and die cut I colored using copic markers. This is a look at the card closed.

Sweet Birthday

The flowers were die cut using Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Die.  Using a glue pen a little sparkle was added using Sparkling Snow glitter to the sweet Queen and flowers.  The sentiment was stamped with black ink and placed on top of the flowers using pop dots.

Sweet Birthday

The inside of the card.  The hearts were also re sized and printed out.  They were colored with copic markers and fussy cut out.  By placing them on pop dots it keeps the card standing.

Sweet Birthday

 A small amount of sparkle was added to the hearts using a glue pen and Sparkling Snow 

Sweet Birthday

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

When It Rains

Good afternoon all, hope you had a great morning!!  I just finished a card using the newly released Splish Splash stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  This is a really cute set and great for heat embossing.  

To made my background paper I used watercolor paper, gelatos and a star punch.  The gelatos colors were laid down and blended together with a small amount of water.  I used the metallic gelatos which gave a really pretty shimmer to the rainbow.  The sentiment was stamped with black ink and the stars were punched in the upper corner.  

I hope you can see all the beautiful shimmer. 

The little boy was stamped with versamark and embossed with Black Detail EP.  The image was then fussy cut out and placed on the card using pop dots.  A piece of 2 1/2 Tear-ific Tape was placed behind the punched stars and glittered using Starfire glitter.  The background was then layered on top of the black CS and placed on the card front.

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

Season's Greetings

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a wonderful day!!  I have a easel card to share with you today, using SNS Sleigh Ride stamp sets.  This set is really pretty and worked so beautifully for my center image.

I used Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies to create my card.  For the bottom panel the oval panel was cut using sticker paper removed the backing and glittered using Sparkling Snow.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento Bahama Blue ink.  For the sparkly ribbon I used 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and Ocean glitter.  You can find a tutorial HERE on how to create glitter ribbon.  The snowflakes were punched using Fisker punch.

This is a look at my card closed.  Using a glue pen around the edges a small amount of Sassy Silver glitter was added.  The trees were stamped and fussy cut out.  A glue pen and Sassy Silver was also used to give a sparkle!

Splish Splash

Good morning all I would to share a layout with you using the newly released Splish Splash stamp set.  This set is so cute and works so great with the new chunky EP.

I started my layout by cutting the overlay using my Silhouette, once cut Glossy Accents was added to the raindrops.  The overlay was placed on top of the background paper.

 The clouds, sun,  puddle and umbrella were also cut using the Silhouette.

 The clouds, puddle and sun were all inked and a little sparkle was added to the edges using a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter. Glossy Accents was added to the puddle.

The umbrella was cut into 4 different pieces.  The pieces were inked with versamark and embossed using Chunky Red, Red Rock and Black Orchid EP.

A piece of white cardstock was cut about 3 inches wide.  The piece was inked with versamark and embossed using Checkers EP.  The images were stamped with versamark and embossed using Super Thick White EP.  They were then fussy cut out and placed on the border strip.

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