Well hope you are having a great time on the blog hop!!  The stamps for this month are just so pretty I really love them all.  I decided to create a circle step card for my card design and only used the sentiment from the Country Flowers stamp set.  

Spellbinder's Fancy Circle die was used for the sentiment.  It was inked around the edges using distress ink.  The cute little butterflies were cut from some Grapic 45 paper and glittered using a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.

The hydrangea were die cut using Spellbinder's die.  They were inked on the edges and small drops of Green Apple Crystal Drops were placed in the center.  The leaves were inked and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  Using Demo Donna's video tutorial the small blue enamel dots were created and placed around the sentiment.  This is a really fun technique to create some really pretty embellishment for your projects. 

Small single flowers were used from the hydrangea and placed along the bottom .  

Along the two edges I placed a strip of Mon Ami Gabby light blue diamond mesh.

Here is a side view of the completed card.  I really loved how pretty it turned out!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have fun and enjoy all the wonderful project by our talented designers!!

The next stop on our blog hop is ANNE.

Love with all of your Heart

Good morning all hope your day is off to a great start.  Today I would like to share a Z-fold card with you using the newly released Nasturtium #1 and #2 stamp sets.

Love all of your Heart

To start the card base I used a Prima stencil along with gelatos.


To create the border pieces I stamped the image with versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP.  The images were then colored using Spectrum Aqua Markers, and adhered to the center strip. Micro beads were added to the center of each flower.

Love with all of your Heart

For the center panel, I used the image from the Nasturtium #1 stamp set. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using Spectrum Aqua marker.  Micro beads were used for the center of each flower.  Along all of the edges of the card glitter was applied using a glue pen and Aqua Marine glitter.


The butterflies were die cut using Stampin Up butterfly die.  Copper Penny and Green Apple Crystal Drops were used on the butterfly spots.


For the sparkly butterfly, I used a Dreamweaver's Butterfly stencil and sticker paper.  The back of the stencil was covered with coconut soap and placed on top of the sticker paper.  Using SunsetTiger Orange and Sunny Daze the butterfly was glittered.  The stencil was removed and the remaining areas were covered with Bronze Splendor glitter and fussy cut around. A row of Want 2 Scrap pearls were added to the center.  The sentiment was stamped with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and fussy cut around.

I Thank God

Good morning everyone, today I would like to share a card made with Sparkle N Sprinkle's newly released Nasturtium 1 stamp set.  I used both the rubber and digi stamps on this card.

To start my card base I used Spellbinder's Majestic Labels Twenty Five.  The layers were cut using white and aqua cardstock.  I placed a piece of sticker paper behind the white layer, placed the aqua layer on top and applied Pinkerbell and Aqua Marine glitter to the open areas.  

The flowers were stamped onto the white smaller layer.  A second stamping of the flowers was done using versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP.  

The flowers were colored using Spectrum Aqua.  They were then fussy cut out and placed on top of the 1st image. 

 Small drops of Green Apple Crystal Drops were applied to the centers,  Using the tutorial the small enamel dots were created using White Blizzard Drops and Ultramarine Blue and Alizarin Crimson Color Burst.

Closer look at the enamel drops.

Small butterflies were die cut using Stampin Up Butterfly die.  The edges were inked and small drops of White Crystal Drops were added.

Here is were digi stamps are so great. The sentiment stamp on the rubber set was to big to fit on my banner.  I just re sized the digi to fit my banner printed out and cut the banner.  It was just the perfect finishing touch for my card.

If you would like to have these stamp sets come on over to Sparkle N Sprinkle to see all the newly released stamps.

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

A Father

Good morning everyone,  I hope your day is off to a great start.  Today I would like to share a Father's Day card with you using the newly released Just Go Fishing (digi) stamp set.  I chose to only use the sentiment from the stamp set for my card.

A Father is Neither

To start my card I embossed the frame from Want 2 Scrap using several different embossing powders.


I inked the frame with versamark and embossed it with White Detail EP.


I re inked the frame and embossed with Vintage EP.


To finish off the frame while the Vintage EP was still hot, I added a small amount of Magic Speckle EP and heat set.


The finished frame

A Father is Neither

The blue cardstock was embossed using an Anne Griffin embossing folder.  The raised areas were lightly sanded to give that distress look.  The sentiment was printed and placed behind the frame opening.  Small drops of Copper Penny Crystal Drops were added to the frame.

A Father is Neither

The anchor was created using the Kiss Cut Technique.  A piece of super adhesive sheet was placed on top of white cardstock, and the anchor was die cut.  I removed the protective backing of the anchor in sections and glittered using Chameleon, Reflections and Peruvian Lily glitter.  The anchor was placed on the card using pop dots.
