I also decorated the ornaments. Whipped out the trusty Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and used it to add adhesive to the ornaments. I sprinkled on Gypsy Red and Margarita glitters to them.Here is another shot of the card. Stella makes me happy, even though she is so grumpy and grinchy! So fun and funny!
I hope you enjoyed this. I had a lot of fun making it.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
Lantern Festive Lantern set is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink to the white cardstock. I colored it with Promarkers. To the metal part of the lantern I added glue with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen. After glue was dry I covered it with Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. I also added some shading with Gold and Copper Gel pens. After die cutting it with Oval die I covered glass part of the lantern with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. Edge of the Oval is covered with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Gypsy Red glitter.
Flowers are from same Festive Lantern stamp set. I stamped them six times with Tuxedo Black Memento ink to the white cardstock. They are colored with Promarkers and fussy cut with scissors. I added some glue with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to flower centers. After glue was dry I covered them with Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. Middle flowers are popped up with foam tape.
To make a background I just took an old pattern paper, added glue with Large Nuvo Glue Pen to the Crackle Background stamp and stamped it to the paper. I cleaned the stamp right away and let the glue dry on the paper. Then I took Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes again and placed it on top of the stamped pattern.
Matting layer and die cut label shape behind the oval are covered with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. It is important to let the glue dry before adding gilding flakes. Nuvo glue is drying tacky, so it’s perfect for gilding flakes. Some White Nuvo Crystal Drops was also added in to corner of my card.

SO this was super fun for me to make! I started out by printing the colored Digital images onto white cardstock. I used the Wreath, the Snowman and the sentiment.
I fussy cut them all out and then started having fun with my Nuvo Small Glue Pen & Glitter! To add the glitter, I simply drew on the area I wanted it to be using the Glue Pen and then sprinkled on the glitter. Brush off the excess and voila!
I added Sugar Plum to the wreath, Mr.Snowflake’s scarf and the wreath he is holding. I used Tiger Orange on his carrot nose and Luau Green on his hat! Blue Haze added a touch of glitter to his gloves & pipe smoke and Sassy Silver on his bells and the sentiment. How easy is that?
Next, I added the Moonstone Glimmer paste to the base of Mr. Snowflake. I used a small spoon to dab the paste on and make it piled up like snow. Such a fun product! I also added a row of it to the top of the piece of patterned paper where I put the icicles. I set it aside to dry (took about an hour).
I assembled my page layout using various pieces of patterned paper. I added 2 rows of 1/4″ Tearific Tape across the length of once piece of paper and used Luau Green to add some extra sparkle. Then I tied the Pull Ribbon around the piece of patterned paper. All of the layers were adhered to the base using 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape. I should mention that this is an 8×8 Layout! 🙂
To finish off the page, I added tons of dots with the Nuvo Crystal Drops! I used the Morning Dew and Crushed Grape to add tons of dimension and fun. I even “drew” on some icicles! What do you think?
I hope you head over to the shop to pick up this fun digital stamp! Until next time,
I decided to do a little spotlighting technique on my card. So to begin with I stamped the image twice with Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and colored one of the images with Copic Markers: Y13, YR04, R17, E31, E33, E13, E35. I then used different sized punches (1″, 1 1/4″ and 1 1/2″) to cut out the three little birds from the colored image. I then applied Dimensional Glue to the “snowy” parts of the circles. Twinkling Clouds was then applied to the glue and set aside to dry.
On the other black and white version, I applied the new Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste with a paint brush to the patches of snow.
This piece, when dry, was cut out to 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and was layered to a piece of cream cardstock which had been die cut with the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Borders and this was then layered to a black card base.
The little spotlit circles were attached with Foam Squares. The Nuvo Glitter Drops, White Blizzard and Silver Moondust were applied to the little dots around the image and Moonstone Glimmer Paste was applied to the little snowflakes.
That finished my card for today. Hope you’ve enjoyed your visit?!
Till next time,
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!-Chris
To start my card I used the new glimmer paste to create background papers. Using the Emerald Green on green cardstock, Moonstone on white cardstock and Garnet Red along with a stencil on white cardstock the layers for my card were created and allowed to dry overnight. These glimmer paste are so beautiful and can be used in some many different ways. I just love how beautiful they are using a stencil.
The poinsettia were stamped onto the cardstock (sorry I forgot to take a picture) and stamped a second time fussy cut out and used as a mask. The lantern was then stamped on top of the poinsettia mask.
The lantern was colored using copic markers. To create the look of glass on the lantern dimensional glue was added to the glass panes and allowed to dry. Dimensional glue dries clear looking like glass. Evening Glow, Waterfall, Golden Silver, Sassy Silver and Sparkling Snow glitter was used on the candle.
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.
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.
Using the glimmer paste on the cardstock created beautiful shimmery paper and layers for my festive card.
I hope you have enjoyed my card as much as I did making it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, see you soon!
Hello, Diane with you today with a fun and very easy
shaker card and few tips to make it easy for you!
I first colored the Winter Blue Jay image with Copics.
It was then fussy cut out (very easy)
I cut a 5″ square card base, then with removable tape,
I placed a Spellbinders Circle die on the card base and
the image so as I could see where I wanted to cut my opening.
I used a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder
for the outside for a bit of texture.
Once cut, I adhered a piece of Heartfelt clear card stock
then cut strips of foam to place around the circle.
(A tip is to peel off the protective coating on both sides,
which makes the tape much easier to maneuver.
Once you have tape all around your cutout,
(Make sure there are no openings in the circle)
add whatever you want for the shaker part.
I added little gold seed beads for this card.
Cut a piece of backing to cover up your opening and adhere.
I used a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder on my back covering
before I adhered it
A bit of Parisian Mist glitter was added to the leaves.
Using Denim Velvet glitter, I added a bit to the bird feathers.
I finished by adding 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape to the outer edges
and then used my ‘finger’ tool to add the Aztec Gold glitter.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, then embossed with
Gold Detail Fine glitter.
Once again, here is the finished shaker card.
Thank you for visiting with me today!
Today I’m sharing a card I made featuring the Autumn Girlfriends Stamp Set #810. I used the Digital Version – it prints off a pre-colored image – making it so easy to make your cards!
Here is the SNS Supply List:
To enhance the lovely ladies on the card, I added some Elephant Gray Flocking to their hair, some Christmas Fire Embossing Powder to the red sweater and some Ballerina Microfine Glitter to the pink sweater (all adhered with the amazing Nuvo Small Glue Pen). The sentiment was printed off onto white cardstock and then trimmed to size. I covered the entire piece of paper with Versamark Ink, then sprinkled on the Clear Detail Embossing Powder, heat setting. Finally, I carefully sprinkled on some Orange Surprise Glitter and the re-heated the Embossing powder to adhere the glitter!
Finally, I added some embellishment dots using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ripened Pumpkin and Dandelion Yellow.
I hope you enjoy this card and are inspired to make some wonderful fall creations!
See you next time!
I started with cutting out the Spellbinders Holiday Dies set, from different scrap pieces of green cardstocks and before removing the dies I sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves ink over the pieces, which gave each of the pieces a different two-toned look.
I stamped the Christmas Tree tag onto white cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed with Pear and cut out with the a Spellbinders Standard Circles die. I was aiming to give this card a monochromatic look, so each of the pieces were then daubed with Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse. I burnished extra onto the edges of the trees with my finger tool.
The background was layered to dark green before the white card base. The trees were then added overlapping one another using Tear-ific Tape and Foam Squares. The little orange star was punched from a scrap of orange cardstock which had been applied with some Moonstone Glimmer Paste.
The Nuvo Crystal Drops Bottle Green were applied to the top right corner as shown.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my monochromatic card today?
Be back soon,
