You Crack Me Up

Good morning all and Happy New Year!!!  It’s designer Belinda here to share a cute Easter card with you today using the new Easter Chicky stamp set.  I choose to use the digi version of this stamp set for my card.

To create my card base I used Spellbinder’s Radiant Rectangle dies.  For the white and yellow background pieces they were cut using sticker paper, glittered with Sparkling Snow and Sunny Daze.  The images were then resized and printed out.  I did print 2 of the row of flowers and cut all of them out using my Silhouette.  Sparkle was added to all of the images using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter.  Small drops of Dandelion and Green Apple Crystal Drops were added to the flowers.

The 2nd row of flowers were placed on top of the chick using foam dots. A 2nd flower for the top of the egg shell was printed, cut out and placed on top of the egg using foam dots.  Using the small glue pen along the edges of the sentiment, Hyacinth glitter was added.  I really love this cute stamp it will be perfect for your Easter cards.

Be sure to visit the store to see all the new stamp sets you will love them all!!

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day, see you soon!

Rustic Flowers

Good morning everyone, it’s Belinda here 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 pen, Chameleon, Margarita, Bubblegum, Daisy, Orange 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 wonderful Holiday Season!!

Hello

Good morning all, it’s Belinda here 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!!

Evening Glow, Waterfall, Golden Silver, Sassy Silver and Sparkling Snow glitter was used on the candle.

Festive Lantern

The poinsettia were colored using copic markers and Honey Gold Crystal Drops were applied to the centers.  To applied the Gliding Flakes to the edges of the panels I used the large Nuvo Glue Pen.  I placed 3 small dots on the top corner using a green maker and then placed drops of Morning Dew Crystal Drops on top.  Using a marker with the clear drops really make for pretty embellishments.

Festive Lantern

A stencil was placed on top of the white cardstock, and Garnet Red Glimmer Paste was applied using a palette knife.  I hope you can see all the beautiful shimmer of this paste, it is gorgeous.
