Happy New Years everyone, I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season, and are ready to ring in 2017!!  I am so excited about all of the new stamps this month!!  It was really hard for me to choose one stamp but I picked the digi only stamp set Edward Elephant St. Patrick #1 to create my easel card. 


To start my card I resized the images, printed and cut them out using my Silhouette.  I did use the color version for the main images .  The easel card was cut using my Silhouette as well.  The paper doily was inked with versamark and heated embossed using Sparkle EP.  Drops of Pale Gold and Green Apple Crystal Drops were placed around the scalloped card front.


The main image was die cut using Spellbinder's Circle die.  The smaller circle was placed inside the larger circle using foam dots.  Sparkle was added to the image using the Nuvo Small Glue pen , Sparkling Snow, Spirited Green and Sunny Daze glitters.  The edges were inked using Memento Bamboo Leaves distress ink.


For the shamrocks they were glittered using dimensional glue and Spirited Green glitter.  Small drops of Pale Gold Crystal Drops were placed in the center. 



The sentiment was printed and cut out.  Using the glue pen along the edges and on the shamrock Spirited Green glitter was applied.  The sentiment was placed on the card using foam dots.

I would like to leave you with a quick peek of project to come using the new stamp sets.  



 I hope you will stop back by to see the reveal of each one of them.

Rustic Flowers


Good morning everyone, hope you are all having a great day.  Today I would like to share a project with you using the Rustic Flower stamp set.



To get my project started I needed to create the background panel.


 To start I adhere a piece of tin foil to a piece of cardstock and distressed it with Stazon ink.  Next I inked the raised side of a embossing folder, placed the cardstock inside foil side up and ran it  through the Big Shot.  The piece was then covered with Golden Sparkle EP and heat set.  This really created a beautiful vintage background for my flower can.


Next I embossed a piece of cardstock with a Anne Griffin Border folder.  Using the Nuvo Large Glue Pen glue was placed on the raised areas and edges.  Let the glue dry slightly and then Nuvo Gilding Flakes were placed on top.  The excess with lightly brushed off.


Small drops of Copper Penny Crystal Drops were on placed the background flower centers, and Pale Gold Crystal Drops on the border strip flowers.


The flower can is from the digi stamp set.  I used the color version resized the image, printed and cut it out using the Cameo Silhouette.  Sparkle was added to the flowers using Nuvo Small Glue penChameleon, MargaritaBubblegumDaisyOrange Crush glitter.  Small drops of Pale Gold Crystal drops were added to the can and a small Pull Ribbon bow was added.
Thanks so much for stopping by hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and remember.....Keep Stamping!!

Hello


Good morning all, hope you are having a wonderful day!!  I would like to share a project with you using the new Build A Flower stamp set!!  I love, love, love this set!!


To start my project I needed to create the background panel.  Using a Prima stencil and Blue Topaz Glimmer Paste this was created.  I love how pretty and sparkly the paste looks when using it with a stencil.  A little sparkle was added around the background panel using Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  It really creates beautiful backgrounds for your project.  It is a must try!!   Once that was finished it was onto the pretty flowers.


The flowers were stamped with versamark onto vellum and embossed using White Spark EP.  They were fussy cut out and colored from the backside using copic markers.  The smaller flowers were stamped again, steps repeated and placed on top of the larger flowers using foam dots.  The leaves were stamped in the same way.
For the flower pot I used left over cardstock that has been covered with glue using the Large Nuvo Glue Pen and then covered with foil, distress using black ink.  An embossing folder was inked on the raised side with versamark the foiled cardstock was placed inside the embossing folder and run thourgh the Big Shot.  The embossed cardstock was then covered with Golden Sparkle EP and heat set.


I was very pleased with the vintage look.  The pot was then stamped with Stazon ink and fussy cut out.  Small drops of Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were placed on the flower centers.  The flowers and leaves were then arranged in the pot.  I placed dots of blue Tombow markers in the corners and put Morning Dew Crystal Drops on top.  I really love how the drops picked up the color from the markers.


The sentiment was die cut using a Anna Griffin die, which was inked with versamark and embossed with Indian Spark EP.  A second die cut was cut using black cardstock and placed slightly off center to create a shadow effect.  

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

Hope you all are having fun on the blog hop and enjoying all the new beautiful stamp sets.  There were so many to choose from this month!!!  For my card I used the Spring Bunny both rubber and digital sets to create my diorama card.  Lets get started on how it came together.




To start I cut all the piece of cardstock and scored them to create the box.  Here is a quick tutorial all the dimension and score lines.  Once the cardstock was cut and scored, the die cut was made in the center of the blue and pink cardstock.  A frame was die cut from sticker paper and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.



Next the bunny was stamped and colored using Tombow markers.  The images was then fussy cut out and adhered to the back panel of the card. Drops of Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were applied to the flowers.  Small clouds were fuzzy cut out using sticker paper and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  They were placed on the background panel using foam dots.  The digital stamp set was used for the larger eggs.  They were resized, printed out and colored using copic makers.  They were fussy cut and placed on the 2nd panel of the card.


The smaller eggs were stamped with the rubber stamp onto cardstock that had been covered with a piece of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape backing removed and glittered with Cloud Nine glitter.  They were then colored using Tombow markers.  I wasn't sure how well the Tombow markers would color on top of the glitter but it worked very well and looked so pretty.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops and Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were placed on the eggs.  They were then placed on the front panel of the card once it had been all put together.



The right side was completed repeating the steps.  Rhubard Crumble Crystal drops were used on the yellow egg.  Small drops of Rhubarb Crumble were placed around the eggs on both sides.


For the front of the card grass was die cut using sticker paper and Elizabeth Craft Outdoor Edges.  The paper was glittered using Spirited Green glitter.  The sentiment was stamped on top using Memento Black Ink.  Small flowers were die cut using a Spellbinder's die placing small Green Apple Crystal Drops in the centers.


For the side panels strips of the blue cardstock were cut and embossed using a Anna Griffin embossing folder.  Pure Platinum Mousse was applied to the raised areas using my finger tool.  This gave a really pretty shimmer to the end panels.  

Here is a sneak peek of projects to come using the new stamp sets.  Hope you will come back by to see all the details!!!


Next stop on the blog hop is the very talented JESS!!

Christmas Tag Box


Good afternoon all, hope you are having a blessed day!!  I would like to share one last project using the Christmas Tag #2 from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  


Using the image from the Christmas Tag #2,  Heartfelt Creations Snowflake and Tag dies I made a small box and tags for this project.  Three tags were created using the dies and the snowflake image from the stamp set.  The tree is also die cut from a Heartfelt Creations die cut and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  The snowflake image was stamped with Peacock Feathers ink and glittered using Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  The snowflakes were die cut from sticker paper and glittered using Sparkling Snow and Waterfall glitter.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops and Silver Moondust Crystal Drops were also used.


The images was stamped with versamark and embossed using Tinsel EP.  The image was then colored using copic markers and die cut using Spellbinder's Circle die.  The large snowflake was die cut using Heartfelt Creations die from sticker paper and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.

To start the tag I embossed a piece of blue cardstock with a Anna Griffin embossing folder and lightly rubbed the raised areas with Nuvo Pure Platinum mousse.  This gives such a pretty shimmer to the embossed areas.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were placed on the center of the snowflakes.  Using Elizabeth Craft's Outdoor Edges dies the snowbanks were created.  The top edges where inked and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.


The cute little snowman from Snow One Like You was stamped and colored using copic markers.  Waterfall glitter was added to the image using Nuvo small glue pen.  The large snowflake is a svg file cut using the Silhouette.  Mother of Pearl mousse was applied to the larger snowflake.  The smaller was glittered using brushable glue and Sparkling Snow glitter.  A large drop of Moondust Crystal Drop was placed in the center.
