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.

Thanks so much for stopping by I hope you have enjoyed my reveal project!  Make sure to stop by each of the talented designers to see all their amazing project!!

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!!

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!!
