You'll Be An Amazing Mom



Good morning all, hope your day is off to a great start!!  Today I want to share a card made with the digi Baby Oh Baby stamp set.  Let's get started on how this came together.

 


To created the background a piece of super adhesive sheet was cut to 5" x 5" and placed
on top of pink cardstock backing removed and glittered using Starfire glitter. 
I used the Victorian die from Crafter's Companion and die cut it twice. They were placed
on top of the glittery background paper small drops of Strawberry Coulis Crystal Drops was added around the die cut.

 


Next the image and sentiment were sized, printed out using the color stamp and cut using
the Silhouette.  Sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Sunny Daze, Spirited
Green, and Starfire glitter.  Small drops of Ebony Crystal Drops were also added.


 


The ribbon was made using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and Sunny Daze glitter.

The image was sized and printed out using the color digi stamp.  Using the Spellbinder's Radiant Rectangle Dies the frame was die cut and placed on top of a piece of sticker paper, backing removed and covered with Sparkling Snow glitter.  This created the beautiful sparkly background for my cute mermaid!



Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were placed on the bubbles.  Sparkle was added to the image using Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Spirited Green, Starfire and Waterfall glitter.  



The shells, starfish and sentiment was printed out and cut out using the Silhouette. Color was added to the shells using copic markers. Glitter was added to them using the small glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  The shells were placed on the card using foam dots.  The branches were die cut using a Sizzix die.

Hope you all are having fun on the blog hop!!  I just love all of the stamp sets this month, but my favorite was the beautiful Swallowtail Butterflies.  Let me show you how my card came together.


The background paper was created using distress ink and a blending tool.  The cardstock was covered with Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers ink blending well.  



Once all the white areas were covered I laid a piece of slightly wet paper towel on top to blend the inks together.  


The wet paper towel lighten the ink and created a beautiful background for my butterflies.  I really wanted a bit of shimmer so after the cardstock was dry, I embossed it with the new Crafter's Companion 3d Embossing Folders.  They are so beautiful!!  The next step was to embellish the embossing using Lemon Sorbet and Aquamarine Mousse from Nuvo.  I did this using my finger and the result was so pretty.  Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were placed on the small dot in the embossing.  


Next it was time to start on the butterflies.  I stamped the butterflies onto watercolor paper.  This was done using the Misti and StazOn ink.  Leaving the paper in the Misti the butterflies were colored with Nuvo's Red Apple, Lemon Zest and Aqua Splash Aqua Markers.  Once the ink was dry the butterflies were re stamped with versamark and embossed using Clear EP.  


The same technique was used on the smaller butterfly using only the Red Apple and Lemon Zest markers.  Both butterflies were fussy cut out and placed on the card using foam dots.


For the sentiment I blended the Red Apple and Lemon Zest on a piece of watercolor paper.  Once dry the sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and small drops of Limoncello Jewel Drops were added.  


I would like to leave you with a sneak peek of my other projects to come, hope you will come back by to see the reveal!!

Have fun on the hop and enjoy all the beautiful projects!!

Next stop on your blog hop is the wonderful and very talented Eret!!!

The Tassel Was Worth The Hassle


Good morning all, hope you are having a great week!!!  Rain has finally stopped here in Houston, so the grandchildren are off to the pool.  Summer has started!!

Today I would like to share my last project a step card from Sparkle N Sprinkle's June Reveal, using the digi Graduation Bundle.  This is a great digi bundle, be sure to check it out!




Let's get started on my step card.  The card base was created using this template and designer paper.  Next all of the images were sized and printed out.  They were then cut using my Silhouette.  


Here is the cute cap image which was resized before printing.  Sparkle was added using dimesional glue on the hat and Black Suede glitter.  On the books, ribbon and 2 of the bottles glitter was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Spirited Green and Starfire glitter.  The image was placed on the card using foam dots.





The banner was created the same using Sunny Daze, Fire Engine Red, Spirited Green and Starfire glitter along with the small glue pen. 



 The light bulb, hat and tassel were covered with dimensional glue and Black Suede glitter.  The center of the bulb was glittered with Sunny Daze and then covered with glossy accents.  This was left to dry overnight.  The bulb was placed on the card panel using foam dots.


To finish off the sentiment was printed and die cut using the Tonic Eastern Oyster dies.  The edges were glittered using the small glue pen and Fire Engine Red Glitter.  Small drops of Ebony Black Crystal Drops were added.  A strip of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape was placed in the center of the designer paper and glittered using Fire Engine Red glitter.

I Think You Are Amazing

Good morning all hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!!  Today I would like to share a easel card with you using the new True Beauty digi and rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Let's get started!!


The easel card base was created using the Elizabeth die from Crafter's Companion. 
 Once die cut Aquamarine Mousse was used for a soft shimmer.



Next the beautiful peacock was resized and printed out using the color digi stamp.  This was then cut out using the Silhouette.  The image was layered on cardstock with the back layer edges glittered using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and Perwinkle glitter.  


Sparkle was added to this pretty bird using Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Spirited Green, Misty Blue and Crystal Ice glitter.  She really sparkled!! Drops of  Violet Galaxy Crystal Drops were placed on the peacock tail.



The center panel was embossed using a Anna Griffin embossing folder and the Aquamarine Mousse. A small purple ribbon was tied around the embossed panel. Around the edges of the embossed panel glitter was added using the small glue pen and Priceless Peacock glitter.



To finished off this easel card, I used the rubber stamp sentiment and stamped with Memento Sweet Plum ink.  It was then die cut using the smaller die from Tonic Eastern Oyster Die set.  Small drops of the Violet Galaxy Crystal Drops were placed on the sentiment and center of the Elizabeth die.  Finally strips of 1/8" and 1/4" Tear-ific Tape were placed on the edge and glittered using Perwinkle and Priceless Peacock glitter.

Bloom


Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Hope you are having a fun day, I would like to share a fun shadow box card with you today using the new Happy Flowers stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The digi papers from this set were also used to create the card.  Let me show you have this all came together!!



First I printed off the designer paper from the digi bundle onto a 8.25" x 11" piece of cardstock.  The paper was then cut twice to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and each end was scored at 1/2" and 1".  The ends were then valley folded to create the card.  The front piece was die cut using the Tonic Eastern Oyster dies. Here is a tutorial on how to create this shadow box card.


The sweet flowers were stamped with Desert Sand Memento ink and colored using Tombox markers.  Sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen along with Sparkling Snow and Spirited Green glitter.  The grass was die cut using Elizabeth Craft Outdoor Edges die from left over paper that had been covered with Peridot Green Glimmer Paste.  


The sentiment was stamped using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and glittered with Waterfall glitter using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen right over top of the ink.  Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were added under the sentiment.  The sentiment was die cut using the Tonic Eastern Oyster Dies.


The butterflies were made using a piece of cardstock that had been covered with a piece of 2 1/2 Tear-ific Tape.  The backing was removed and the cardstock was covered with Cloud Nine glitter.  The butterflies were stamped using StazOn ink using the Corner Garden stamp set. Once the ink is dry the butterflies were colored using Tombow markers.  Fussy cut out the butterflies and placed them on the card.  


Hope you have enjoyed my project.  This is a really fun card to make and so pretty when finished!  

Have a wonderful day and remember......Keep Stamping!!

True Beauty


Good morning all hope your Wednesday is off to a great start!!!  Today I will be sharing a card with you using the newly released and oh so beautiful True Beauty stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Let's get started!





First using the new Elizabeth Die from Crafter's Companion the black layer was die cut.  This created a beautiful top for my card.  Small drops of Purple Rain Glitter Drops were placed on the die.
Next I needed to create the background layers using Blue Topaz and Tanzanite Lavender Glimmer Paste.  Covering pieces of cardstock with the glimmer paste and a craft knife.  This will need to dry for serveral minutes.  Once dry the edges were torn and adhered to the card base.  This really created a pretty shimmer for my card background.



Next the beautiful peacock was stamped with versamark twice and embossed using Peacock EP.  One of the image was die cut using Spellbinders Oval die and colored with copic markers. Sparkle was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Waterfall glitter.  Drops of Purple Rain Glitter Drops were placed on both images.  The die cut images was placed on top of the 2nd image using foam dots.  Glue was added to the edges of the oval using the Nuvo Medium Glue Pen and glittered using Orchid glitter.  Drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops were placed around the oval.

Well I hope you are enjoying the blog hop, don't you just love all the beautiful stamp sets and those beautiful digi papers!!!  I decided on  Kaitlyn Mermaid  (digi version DIGI847LS) for my project.  I thought how cute she would look inside a shell so I went to work looking through my svg files and came across this cute shell card.  It work perfectly to create my pop up card for this cute little mermaid!!  Let me show you how it all came together.

This is a look at the card closed!



First the card was cut using white cardstock and the layering pieces was cut using the digi paper bundle set.  I just love these beautiful papers.  For the front of the card leaves were die cut from a Sizzix leaf die.  The shell layer was glittered along the edges using the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen and Waterfall glitter.  The sentiment was printed, the edges were inked using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  The edges were also glittered using the same glue pen and glitter.  Small drops of Sea Breeze Jewel Drops.  



The sweet little image was  resized, printed using the color stamp and cut out using the Silhouette.  Next it was time to make her sparkle!!!  I used the Small Nuvo Glue Pen along with Waterfall, Sunny Daze, Sparkling Snow and Fuschia Glass Glitter.  For the edges of the shell layer Waterfall glitter was also used.  Small drops of Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops were also used.  


The sentiment for the inside of the card was printed out and die cut using the Fancy Label die from Sizzix,  The back layer of the label was cut using sticker paper, the second layer was placed on top of the sticker paper and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  The edges of the oval was inked and glittered using medium glue pen and Waterfall glitter.  Small pearls and left over leaves were added.  



 I just love this sweet little mermaid and my grand daughter loved her too!!  I hope you have enjoyed my project I really had fun putting it together.  


Here is a little peek of project to come using both rubber and digi stamps.  I hope you will come on back to see the full project!!
