The images are the digi version of the stamp set. They were re sized, printed and cut out. All of the images were colored using copic makers.
For the main image sparkle was added to the water using a glue pen and Waterfall glitter. For the shaker part of my card I used the beach ball and duck. The water drops were made using Demo Donna’s tutorial from May’s Video Kit Club, Ultramarine Blue Color Burst and Morning Dew Crystal Drops. For the frame of my shaker I used 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape, Waterfall and Spirited Green glitter.
For that cool drink I colored with copic makers, added small drops of Green Apple, Duck Egg Blue Crystal Drops and glittered using a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter. The top of glass and the ice cubes I applied Glossy Accents.
To finish off my shaker I cut waves using my Silhouette brushed brushable glue along the top edge and glittered using Waterfall glitter. The sentiment was printed edges inked and placed using foam dots. The shaker was then placed on the card base.
Hope you have a wonderful day, maybe time for a swim!!
It is Christmas In July at Sparkle N Sprinkle with all the new Christmas sets. E. Marie here to share a card using the new Christmas set, Milton Catching Snowflakes. This guy is adorable with his scarves and comes with four great sentiments.
I chose to create a “gap” card since I have seen so many great samples lately. Most of these cards actually leave an actual gap between the top and bottom front sections, held together by an image or sentiment, but I chose to support this one with a piece of acetate.
The image was heat embossed with Detail Black embossing powder and colored with copic markers. Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter was added to the scarves and snowflake using a glue pen. This was layered to the right side of the card.
I used the digital version of this set to print the sentiment and layered this on the inside of the card so the sentiment would show in the open gap. Here is a picture of the inside. I added white layers on the inside top and bottom of the card front to make it look neater and cover any exposed adhesive from adding the acetate.
I know you will love playing with this card style and hope you enjoyed seeing this cute set.
Hi, Diane with you today with a very fun technique to share with you.
I am going to show you how to do a quick ‘stained glass’ Rose.
One of the new June stamp sets is “Roses”, a perfect set for this technique!
Start by stamping the rose on a piece of embossable plastic with a
and it worked, though I had to let it dry for quite a while so as not to smear.
Pour out a small drop, maybe nickel size of Diamond Glaze or Crystal Effects
on your craft mat. Add a few drops of a ‘dye’ re-inker in the color you want you rose
and mix in.
Flip your rose over to the back side and start coloring it in with a paint brush.
Let dry completely (it dries very quickly, but be patient), then do the same with a green for your leaves.
I used Distress ink refills raspberry for the rose and
peeled paint for the leaves. Let completely dry again.
Once dry, pour another drop of the glaze on your mat and once again add to the back of your rose, this time do not add any color.
While still wet, add your choice of glitter to the back. I used Cloud Nine glitter and it seemed to be the perfect choice. Set aside to dry again.
While the rose is drying find a die that will make a ‘window’ over the rose and die cut
on your card front.
You will be using the ‘negative’ part of the die. I embossed this using a vine
This is such a pretty embossing powder, all sparkle-y and glittery !
Place your Rose behind the negative cut out using Tear-ific Tape 1/4″, Then adhere
to a card base. Add your bow and your sentiment.
This is really an easy technique, it is just being patient to let it dry in-between.
Thank you for visiting with me today
I really love these stamps – so versatile and perfect for Father’s Day!
Here is my supply list:
I first started by printing off the Digital Image. I cut it to 3.75X5 inches. To paint the background, I gently sprinkled on the Ultramarine Blue Watercolor Powder, then took an AquaPainter brush to move the color around. I think it created such a pretty background! I adhered all my layers using Tear-ific Tape.
I added 2 more layers of cardstock to add some dimension. I cut the Embossable Acetate to 5.5X4.25 – to cover the entire card front. I swiped the entire piece of Acetate with the Anti-Static Bag. I used Versamark to stamp the hoenycomb image from Journal Mixed Media to the corners. I think it kind of looks like fishermen’s nets! Then I sprinkled on the White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set carefully (making sure not to melt the acetate!).
To make my brads, I used my Tweezers to hold the brad firmly. I dipped the top into Versamark Ink, then dipped it into my Ocean Embossing Powder. I heat set carefully and then quickly (while still warm!) re-dipped it into the embossing powder, heat setting a second time. I love that you can create any color brad you want using this method!
I let each brad cool down (be careful – they can get very hot!). To attach the Acetate layer to my card, I simply punched holes in each corner of my cardfront (including the Acetate) and used the Brad to attach it.
I hope you enjoyed this card!
Until next time,
Hi! It’s designer Eret here with a mixed media project. I played with Want 2 Scrap chipboard, SNS glitters and embossing powders and with other fun products.
I’ll start with Want 2 Scrap Dress Form by Laurel Lane. It’s huge. It’s perfect for Scrapbook layout but not so good for a card maker. I hope I’ll remember to check the measurements before ordering supplies next time. But I’m happy I made this mistake. Otherwise this mixed media project wouldn’t born 🙂
This Dress Form comes in two pieces: silhouette and intricate dress. I painted both of them with white Gesso and let them dry. Silhouette layer was covered with Brushable Glue and Bubble Gum Glitter. Intricate layer was inked with Versamark ink. To the dress part I added White Detail Embossing Powder and to the leg Silver Detail EP. I applied two coats of EP for a better coverage. To decorate the dress I stamped feathers from Bird Song stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with markers. The ribbon was covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Bubble Gum Glitter. I also added Want 2 Scrap white pearls to the belt.
For the background I used left over piece from Want 2 Scrap Vintage Fancy Frames. I painted the Chipboard with white Gesso and let it dry. I added brick pattern with Want 2 Scrap Brick Stencil and Dreamweaver White Embossing Paste. Stenciling was left uneven. I also added brick pattern to the watercolor cardstock in same way. Embossing paste was added to some places with stiff brush. Everything was colored with Gray Nuance water-soluble powder and Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist (Carribbean Blue and Crushed Shells). Watercolor cardstock was added behind the Chipboard layer holes.
One chipboard frame was used on this project. I covered it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. I added another layer ink and EP for smoother look. While EP was still warm I added Velvet Sparkle EP on top and melted it with heat tool.
Sentiment is from Bird Song set. It was stamped with Versamark ink to the white cardstock and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. I inked the layer with Salty Ocean Distress ink. Birds are die cut out of black cardstock with Spellbinders die: Birds on Wire. Layer underneath is inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Detail EP and then with Velvet Sparkle EP. Frame is popped up with foam tape.
To add some greenery I used leaves I had left from another project. They were die cut with Spellbinders Sprigs die out of Sticker Paper and covered with Luau Green Microfine Glitter. Flowers are die cut with Spellbinders Hydrangea die out of white cardstock which was previously colored with marker to light purple. I cut some small white pearls from Want 2 Scrap Sleek Strips Pearls and adhered them to flowers centers.
One frame hole was covered from the back side with Embossable Clear Acetate. You can place a photo behind it. I printed out a Digital version of Lucky Charm stamp and colored it with markers. For the ribbon I added Bubble Gum Glitter with Sakura Glue Pen.
On following photo you can see how the frame stand. Edges are covered with white satin ribbon. Only the place where the picture is entered is left as it is.
It was messy, time consuming and very fun project to make. I hope you like it.

Hi! Greetings from Estonia. It’s Eret here to share a simple and fun shaker card.
I used digi version from new Disco Girlfriends stamp set. I made the sentiment bigger and printed it out to the white cardstock. I inked all around the sentiment with Broken China Distress ink.
Inside the shaker are micro bead, flower sequins and glittered numbers. Numbers are die cut with MemoryBox Classic Numbers dies out of Sticker Paper. I covered the numbers with three different glitters: Easy Green, Cherry Lemonade and Pinkerbell. For the window I used piece of Embossable Clear Acetate.
Flowers are also digis from the Disco Girlfriends stamp set. I changed the color to three different shades of purple and printed them in two sizes. With Sakura Glue Pen I added Lavender Iris glitter to most flowers. Flowers without glitter was glued to the inside of the shaker window. Rest of the flowers was adhered to the window frame. I also added pieces from Mon Ami Gabby small and large Pearl Mesh to the center of flowers.
Frame is die cut out of green cardstock with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles dies.

Hugs & smiles,
Good morning everyone, it’s Belinda here this morning to share a holiday card with you using a embossable acetate, tissue paper and glitter.
To start with I stamped the background images on a piece of cardstock. I used the trees from the Winter Swirl stamp set. Next I used my anti static bag on a piece of acetate. The sleigh from the Sleigh Ride stamp set was stamped onto the embossable acetate using versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP.
Flip the embossed image over and place Glossy Accents over the entire image. I used a small piece of blue gelato and mixed it with the Glossy Accents to create the pretty blue color. A light dusting of Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the Glossy Accents.
I then placed a piece of white tissue paper on top of the wet Glossy Accents smoothed out the wrinkles and flipped over. This was then placed on top of the Winter Tree stamped image. Let dry completely about an hour. I then die cut the entire piece using Sizzix’s Funky Label dies.
Using a piece of glitter paper, I created a frame using the Funky Labels. The background paper was embossed with Anna Griffin’s Snowflake Embossing Folder.
The background paper was then layered onto a 5.25 x 5.25 card. A small line of glitter was added to the edges using a glue pen and Sassy Silver glitter.
I placed a piece of 2 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape on top of white cardstock. Removed the backing and cover with Cloud Nine Glitter. I stamped the sentiment from the Sleigh Ride stamp set with lack ink on top of the glitter. Fussy cut around.
The snowflake was die cut using Anna Griffin die and sticker paper. The snowflake was glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
Anne here and my card today uses various products sold at Sparkle N Sprinkle, including Embossable Clear Acetate, Super Adhesive Sheets, Dreamweaver stencil, Want 2 Scrap chipboard, and of course glitter and flock.
The background was created by first applying a piece of a Super Adhesive Sheet onto the clear Embossable Acetate. I then rubbed Hawaiian soap on the Cherry Blossom stencil so that it wouldn’t permanently stick to the adhesive. Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft flock was used to cover the design. After removing the stencil, I used a marker directly on the flock to change the color of the branches.
Once this was completed, Waterfall semi transparent glitter was added to the rest of the adhesive. Since this glitter is semi-transparent, it’s color changed in intensity depending on what color of cardstock I had behind it. This is why I used this technique on acetate – to see how the overall look changed based on what color cardstock I used for the mat. The centers of the flowers are self adhesive bling from Want 2 Scrap. In order to flatten them, I ran it through my die cutting machine. This gives you more ways to use the dimensional gems. You can really see the difference when you compare his eye to the centers of the flowers. The same self adhesive gems were used for both.
The chipboard flourish bird is also by Want 2 Scrap and he was covered with Fleur de Lis embossing powder and heat set. I added a pull ribbon bow by Mon Ami Gabby. Sue Wilson Designs (Noble dies – Ornate Pierced Rectangles) complete the card and card base.
