Hope you are having fun on the blog hop!!  The stamp sets this month are amazing, and I had a blast playing with them all!!!  I used the digi Turkey Dish for my step card.

To start the back panel

I used a piece of sticker paper, Dreamweaver stencil and coconut soap.  Place the stencil on top of the sticker paper after rubbing the back with the soap.  The soap will help the stencil to come off easier.  Starting with the lightest glitter Sunny Daze, then Sunset glitter was added.  With each glitter I burnish well with my finger then the stencil was turned upside down to remove the excess glitter before the next glitter.  I brushed well with the glitter brush to remove any excess glitter.  Being very careful the stencil was removed and the remaining sticky areas were covered with Bronze Splendor and burnish well with the finger tool.  The excess glitter was brushed off.  Here is a tutorial on this technique.

 The background is just beautiful and so sparkly!!

The images were printed off, I used the color option.  Sparkle was added to her using a Nuvo Glue Pen, Sunset, Spirited Green, Dazzling Rose, Sassy Silver, Golden Silver and Sunny Daze glitter.  Ebony Black Crystal Drops were placed on top of the black dots.  I covered her glasses with dimensional glue, which dries clear and gave the look of glass.  She was then fussy cut out. For the background panel I used a Sizzix leaf embossing folder.  Nuvo Mother of Pearl Mousse was applied to the raised areas using my finger.  This really gave a pretty look to the leaves.

The sentiments were printed and punched using Fisker's Oval and Scalloped punches.  The edges were inked with Spiced Marmalade ink, small dots of Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were added to the edges.  Small leaves were punched and applied to the ovals.  A strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape was placed on top of the bottom panel the protective backing was removed and a strip of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape was placed on top.  The 1/2" strip was covered with Sunset glitter burnish well and brushed off. The backing of the 1/4" strip was removed and covered with Bronze Splendor glitter repeating the steps.  

To finished off the top of the card vellum leaves were punched and inked with Spiced Marmalade ink.  They were placed on the top of the card along with an acorn and a Pull Ribbon bow.  

I will leave you with a sneak peek of project to come!!!  I hope you will stop back by to see all the details.

Stella Call Me Witch

Good morning all, hope you had a fabulous weekend!!  Since Halloween is just around the corner September has just flown bye!  I would like to share a card with you, using the new Stella Call Me Witch digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I came across a paper pack at Michael's that is all laser cut paper from Recollections (5x7).  I thought how cute the spiders and spider webs would go with the stamp.  

To create the background I placed a piece of super adhesive sheet on top of a piece of cardstock.  Removed the protective backing andplaced the laser cut piece on top.  Using the backing sheet on top of the laser cut I rubbed all around to make sure the piece was adhere well.  Next Parisian Mist
 was sprinkled on top of the sticky areas and burnish well with the finger tool.  The background was brushed well to remove any excess glitter.  I just loved how pretty and sparkly this turned out.  Small dots of White Crystal Drops were placed in the center of the spider webs.

Stella was then resized and printed out.  I used the color option .  Using the new Nuvo Glue Pen sparkle was added.  The glitter used on her is Golden Silver for the star, Hyacinth for her dress, Orange Surprise on her hat and Black Ice on shoes and dress.  For her hair Twinkling Clouds flock was used.  To create the look of glass on her glasses I filled in the area with dimensional glue.

The spider web was die cut using a Anne Griffin die and sticker paper.  The protective backing was removed and Sparkling Snow glitter was applied.  For the center I added a dot of Ebony Crystal Drop and a small dot of White Crystal Drops.  

The cute little spider was also die cut using a Anne Griffin die from sticker paper and glittering it with Sassy Silver glitter.  Small red rhinestones was red for his eyes.  To create the web he is hanging from I used a piece of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape removed the backing, twisted it and applied Twinkling Clouds. Here you can find a tutorial on how to create the ribbon using tape and glitter, it is from the January Video Kit Club  The sentiment was printed die cut using Sizzix's Funky Labels, while the setiment was still in the die glue was applied using Nuvo Glue Pen.  The edges were then glittered using Orange Surprise.

Give Thanks

Good morning all, hope you all are having a good Wednesday!  This morning I would like to share a card with you using the Fruit Note (digi) stamp.  This is a beautiful image, just perfect for your Thanksgiving cards!!

Fruit Note

The image was printed off using the colored digi.  I did resize the image slightly.  Using the new Nuvo Glue Pen, along with Fairy Tale Lavender, Sunny Daze and Sunset the sparkly was added.  The background was created using a leaf embossing folder from Sizzix.  The cardstock  was then layered together slightly offset.  Using Nuvo's Glue Pen and Sunset glitter around the edges of the card base.

Fruit Note

The sentiment was printed and die cut using Sizzix's Funky Label dies.  The edges were inked and placed on the card using foam dots.

Fruit Note

Leaves were cut using svg files and my Silhouette.  They were inked with Bamboo Leaves and Spiced Marmalade.  Small leaves were punched using a Fisker punch.  To finish off I added bows behind the leaves and to the bottom.  This is a really simple card using the colored digi images, but with a little glitter and sparkle it turned out so beautiful!!!

Don't Be A Scardey Cat

Good morning all, hope your day is off to a great start.  This morning I'm sharing a spooky Halloween card with you.

Halloween Cat Stamp
To create this card I embossed a piece of black cardstock with a Sizzix embossing folder.  On the raised areas I used Pure Platinum Mousse to give that shimmer look.  On the DP creepy eyeballs were added using Crystal Drops Ebony BlackWhiteApple Green and Dandelion Yellow.  The little ghost was die cut using a Recollections die eyes were added using Crystal Drops White and Ebony Black.  To the edges I used a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter for that little sparkly.  To give the DP edges a little pop I used a glue pen and Sassy Silver glitter.

Halloween Cat StampThe image is the Halloween Cat and it was stamped using black ink and embossed with Clear EP.  Next I took a sponge dauber and Spiced Marmalade ink and inked in the moon.  A glue pen, Sassy Silver and Pistachio glitter was used to add the sparkle to the image. Bats were die cut using a Recollections die from sticker paper and glittered using Black Suede glitter.  Little eyes were added using Ebony Black and White Crystal Drops.  They were adhered to the card using foam dots.

Halloween Cat Stamp

The sentiment was stamped with versamark and embossed using Jazzy Orange EP.  It was then fussy cut around inked with Bamboo Leaves ink and adhered to the card using foam dots.  Small eyes were added to the spider web using White and Ebony Black Crystal drops.  These Crystal Drops are so much fun and make spooky eyes on any Halloween card.  If you have not tried them hop on over to the store to see all the wonderful colors, you will love them!!
