Stella Grinchy Santa [11.16.2016]

Happy Holidays from Designer Chris! Who doesn’t love Stella? She makes me smile and when I saw this new Stella Dear Santa in the November release, I just had to have her ūüôā Let’s see what I did.
804_stellasanta_01_front
Stella definitely wasn’t a good girl this year, and Santa probably won’t be visiting her. She reminded me of the Grinch, so I had to make her green as an homage to one of my favorite holiday characters! I used the Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and rolled on glue to her hat. I sprinkled on Margarita glitter. Then, more glue pen on her hat ruff, and sprinkled on Exhilarated Green glitter. These two greens together were the perfect Grinch colors!
804_stellasanta_02_stellagrinch
I die cut some snowflakes and jazzed them up. I used my finger tool, and burnished on some of the Pure Platinum Nuvo Embellishment Mousse on some of the snowflakes and Blue Topaz Nuvo Glimmer Paste on others. I used Brushable Glue and adhered the snowflakes to my background. Here is what the snowflakes looked like.
804_stellasanta_03_snowflakes I added some texture to my background. I stamped the Crackle Background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with White Detail embossing powder. Then, I placed some strips of Double sided “Tear-ific” Tape over the background. I laid out a strip from the 1/8″, 1/4″ and 1/2″ Double sided “Tear-ific” Tapes. I burnished in Gypsy Red, Margarita, and Evening Glow glitters in the tape strips.
804_stellasanta_04_backgroundsnowflakes

I rolled out more Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and rolled on glue to the “Dear Santa” part of the letter. I added Gypsy Red glitter to make it a bit more fun. Here it is.

804_stellasanta_05_dearsantaI 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.804_stellasanta_06_ornamentedgeHere is another shot of the card. Stella makes me happy, even though she is so grumpy and grinchy! So fun and funny!804_stellasanta_07_last
I hope you enjoyed this. I had a lot of fun making it.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Stella – Call Me Witch

Stella-Call Me Witch 800

 

Anne here with another fun halloween card for you.  I used the digi version of Stella РCall Me Witch for both the image and the sentiment.  After coloring the image with Copic markers, I added Blue Raven glitter to her buckles on the hat as well as her shoes and to her cape.  Glossy Accents was added to the eye glasses.

Stella-Call Me Witch 800

 

I die cut the image using a Spellbinders die (Timeless Rectangles). ¬†Then I proceeded to cut off the outside edges of the die cut using my deckle edge cutter. ¬†It’s important that you cut the top piece off first and then the other three sides. ¬†Otherwise you won’t get all the details. ¬†Once all four sides were cut off, I added the top piece back on (like a puzzle piece) and adhered it from the back. ¬†I wanted to use this piece as it reminded me of a bat. ¬†I then used some Brushable Glue on this top piece and covered it with Eggplant glitter.

Stella-Call Me Witch 800

I outlined the sentiment, which comes with the set, with Dimensional Glue and added more Eggplant glitter to the edges.  The bats are from an older Spellbinders die (Nesting Bats) and Blue Raven glitter was added to both of these for more sparkle.

 

As a finishing touch, I added a bow in Halloween colors and I tried something new on it. ¬†I took a Sakura Glue pen and ran it down the center purple stripe on the ribbon and covered it with more Eggplant glitter. ¬†I wasn’t sure if it would adhere to the ribbon, but I’m happy to report that it did. ¬†Happy discovery :-).

Stella Call Me Witch

Hi, Diane with you today!

I have a bright, cheerful and fun Halloween card

to share that is super easy to make using

some very cool products and a new stamp set (Stella Call Me Witch) from the

Sparkle N Sprinkle store!

Stella Call Me Witch

I started out by cutting a 5 x 7″ black card stock base,

(which I later mounted on a slightly bigger green card stock).

Using a star stencil and Dreamweavers white embossing paste,

I embossed the black panel.

Stella Call Me Witch

White the paste was still wet, I covered it with

Margarita Velvet Glitter.

Stella Call Me Witch

It will look something like this…and don’t worry if you have a few

uncovered places, as you will be covering it up later anyhow.

Stella Call Me Witch

I set the panel aside to dry completely

and printed my digital stamp

Stella Call Me Witch, then colored her with copics.

Brushable glue was added to her ‘hair’.

Stella Call Me Witch

Sparkle N Soft flocking Blissful Blue was then sprinkled on the Brushable glue.

Stella Call Me Witch

While her hair was slightly drying, I used a circle punch,

coated it with glue, then added Electrified Yellow Glitter for a moon.

I added the digital sentiment (part of the stamp set)

to the moon.

A few bats were punched, then coated with Black Ice Glitter.

Stella Call Me Witch

For even more glittery goodness,

I outlined her hat and star first with Nuvo Glue Pen Small,

then added Reflection Velvet Glitter,

and her shirt with more of the Margarita Velvet glitter.

Stella Call Me Witch

A green bow and ribbon were added along with a

Sizzix Scaredy Cat die cut that was totally covered

with Nuvo Glue Pen Large and then sprinkled

with Black Ice Glitter.

That’s it, she is all done!

Stella Call Me Witch

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Flower Cart

Happy Sunday!!   Diane with you today

with a gorgeous new stamp set called

Flower Cart.

I love flowers and this stamp set is any

gardeners dream!

Flower Cart

I started out with a pretty simple technique,

stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink,then coloring in with Copics.

I die cut the image using Spellbinders ‘ Define Elegance” die.

Once die cut, I added Bubblegum Glitter to the umbrella ruffled edge.

Using a Sakura Glue pen, I added Lady Luck glitter to the leaves.

Flower Cart

Then using Sticker Paper,I adhered the entire piece down.

I hand cut the remainder of the Sticker  Paper away.

Using my ‘finger tool’, I added Cloud Nine glitter to the exposed

sticker paper.

Flower Cart

The panel was then adhered with Tear-ific Tape 1/4″

to a DCWV Mixed Media burlap paper.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Flower Cart

Hello crafty peeps!

Step 1 – Image & Sentiment

IMG_0225

Print out your fully colored digital image and sentiment onto white cardstock. ¬†I love that some of the digital images are colored – saves me some time ūüėČ ¬†To add a little more sparkle and shine, I used the Quicky Glue Pen to add Fairytale Lavender Glitter to some of the flowers and the trim of the umbrella

I die cut the image out using my oval dies & Big Shot Machine, then applied Peony Pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse around the edges of the image using my finger tool.  The sentiment was fussy cut out and then all I did was trace the words using my Quicky Glue Pen, sprinkled on Princess Rose Embossing Powder and heat set. 

Step 2 – Background

IMG_0215

I cut a piece of 4×5.25″ purple cardstock. I then inked up an embossing folder with Versamark Ink and ran the paper through my Big Shot. ¬†What this does is create and embossed AND inked surface! ¬†All I did next was sprinkle on my Princess Rose Embossing Powder to the inked surface and heat set, creating a gorgeous, sparkly, embossed background piece.¬†

I took a white doily and completely covered it using Spring Green Embellishement Mousse. ¬†I just used my finger tool to burnish it in. I just LOVE how shiny and fun the mousse is to work with! ¬†You’ve gotta try it!

Step 3 – Let’s Put it Together!

IMG_0216

I adhered my doily to the background using Brushable Glue, then added my main image using 1/4″ Tearific Tape. The sentiment was popped up using Foam Squares. ¬†I took the main flower and added some random smears of Brushable Glue, then sprinkled on Fairytale Lavender Glitter for some sparkle. ¬†I set it aside to dry.

IMG_0217

I made some “Candy Dots” using the Crushed Grape Nuvo Crystal drops on the background and also in the middle of another flower. ¬†I also set this aside to dry (I let it sit overnight).¬†Once everything was good and dry, I adhered the flowers with Foam Squares & Tear-ific Tape. ¬†The entire card front was then mounted using 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape onto card base that I made from purple cardstock.

VOILA!  A gorgeous Flower Cart Thank You card!

I hope you enjoyed this card.  See ya next time!

Eskimo Kisses

 

Hi, Diane with you today with a fun ‘Christmas in August’

card to share with you using

Eskimo Kisses Stamp set.

Eskimo Kisses

I started out by using a Cheery Lynn Designs wreath die

called Joy To The World Wreath.

I cut the die 2 times

Eskimo Kisses

Brushable Glue was applied to each wreath,

then heavily coated with Pine Grove Glitter Tinsel.

The two wreaths were then stacked, one on the other.

It doesn’t matter if some of the white shows, it just adds

to the beauty of the wreath.

Eskimo Kisses

When the wreath was adhered to the card panel, I slightly bent

some of the branches up,

then added a bow to the top.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark

then embossed with Christmas Fire embossing powder.

The sentiment was then punched out with a heart punch.

Eskimo Kisses

The adorable snowman and child were stamped with

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored with various Copics,

then fussy cut out.

I added Sparkle N Sprinkle Twinkling Clouds to the

ear muffs, cuffs and snowman hat brim.

Gypsy Red Velvet glitter was added to the snowman’s hat pompom.

To finish I added Sparkling Snow glitter

to the snowflake embossed back panel.

Eskimo Kisses

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Make sure to stop back each and every day for more fabulous inspiration!

Dancing Milton

Hi there, Designer Shona here to share a card using the July reveal set: Milton Catching Snowflakes. I chose to repurpose the stamp:

Dancing Milton

I matched my dancing giraffe with a saying from the Spring Time Spunky set, added a fuzzy giraffe background and some purple tulle for a totally different look.

I began with the background. Taking a piece of yellow cardstock, I applied a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of Super Adhesive Sheet. After removing the protective backing I applied Mimosa Sparkle N Soft. Then I applied Memento Rich Cocoa ink to the raised patches on the inside of the Darice Giraffe embossing folder and ran the top half of the fuzzy cardstock through the embossing machine, then reinked the patches and ran the bottom half through.

Dancing Milton

Milton was stamped on white cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed with Teddy Brown. Copics were used to color. Sparkling Coffee Sparkle N Soft was applied to the patches with Brushable glue.

Dancing Milton

Dimensional Glue was then applied to the hooves. This was then set aside to dry.

Dancing Milton

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on white glossy cardstock and heat embossed with Sienna. The Tuscany EP‘s are my go to detail embossing powders, which I use a lot on sentiments. The saying was cut up as shown to be attached to the card with foam squares. When the glues were dry, I added the velvet glitters, Hyacinth, Orchid Rose and Ballerina, to the scarf, using the glue pen – Milton becomes Mildred!!

Dancing Milton

Spellbinders Mega Ovals Large was used to cut out the giraffe and before removing the die I sponged some Memento Cantaloupe ink around the image.

Dancing Milton

The background was layered to a piece of mustard cardstock, edged with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, before being layered to a white card base. I then attached a piece of purple tulle to the back of the image before attaching both the cut up sentiment and image with foam squares as shown.

Dancing Milton

That finishes my project for today. Hope I’ve inspired you to try out some of the Sparkle N Softs.

Till text time,

Shona

 

 

Santa Stop Here Step Card [07.27.2016]

HI from Designer Chris! I used the new Deer Duo Digital Stamp Set 797BG [DIGI797] for today’s card. Let’s take a peek.

797_01_DeerDuo_Front

These sweet reindeer are so cute! I colored them with Copic markers. Then, I used an oval die cut to cut out the deer duo. They needed a little extra something-something to frame them. I pulled out the Dimensional Glue [539], and squeezed a bead of it all around the edge of the oval. I sprinkled Luau Green Velvet Glitter (microfine) [GM2004] and set it aside to dry. 

797_02_DeerDuo_GlitterRing

This sweet heart between the two deer was calling my name, and needed some glitter to make it pop! So, I pulled out my Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] and sprinkled on some Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter [GM2005]. This made the heart shine and sparkle!

797_03_DeerDuo_Heart

These sweet little deer are holding packages. After coloring the packages with Copic markers, I added some Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops [673N] on the dots and the ribbon.

797_04_DeerDuo_Ribbon

After sparkling up the image, I decided to use a Step Card Base [CB-Step5]. I decided to create some presents across the bottom of the step card to make it more festive. I die cut squares of white cardstock. I masked off the heart from the Deer Duo stamp set [797P7] and stamped the heart onto each package, and then colored them with Copic markers. I adhered some 1/2″ Double-sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT04] to white cardstock, and then die cut out little ribbons with some teeny border dies. I peeled off the adhesive, and burnished in some Bubble Gum Semi-Transparent Glitter [G1088] and some Daisy Velvet Glitter (microfine) Semi-Transparent [GM2019]. I layered the ribbons over the packages to match them to the deer packages.

797_05_DeerDuo_Packages

I also sparkled up the lady deer’s bow. I used my¬†Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky]. and sprinkled on some¬†Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter (microfine) Semi-Transparent [GM2000]. Her bow was so cute!

797_06_DeerDuo_Bow

I also sparkled up the lady deer’s necklace with Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter (microfine) Semi-Transparent [GM2000] adhered with the¬†Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky].

797_07_DeerDuo_Pearls

I printed out the sentiment from the new Deer Duo Digital Stamp Set 797BG [DIGI797], colored it with Copic markers, and applied the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] to the inside of the STOP ornaments, and sprinkled on Aztec Gold glitter [G1006]. I also used the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] to add in some Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter [GM2005] to the rest of the ornaments and I added lines above and below the sentiment to frame it.

797_08_DeerDuo_SantaSentiment

I assembled all the parts of the card into the Step Card Base [CB-Step5] and added in a bow made from the Lime Ribbon Pull Ribbon [MONR31] to finish it off. This made a fun and sweet card!

797_09_DeerDuo_Front

I hope you enjoyed the card. It makes me smile!

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!

Glittery Christmas Skates card by Chris

Hi from Designer Chris! I am head over heels with these Christmas Skates! It is so much fun to have Christmas in July, and this new stamp set is so pretty and so versatile.Here is my card using the Christmas Skates digital image [DIGI789].

789_01_ChristmasSkates_Front

I used the new Christmas Skates digital image [DIGI789] and sized the skates to fill a large card front. I also sized the sentiment fairly large. I printed these out on white cardstock, and die cut both with a stitched rectangle die. I also printed out a second image of the skates so I could fussy cut and layer one over the other for dimension, and to make the bottom skate burst out the edge of the rectangle, and burst the holly out of the top.

When I saw this skate stamp, I just had to have it and sparkle up those skates! It made me think of the Olympic skaters with their sparkly outfits. I first colored the skates with Copic markers, just to add some light gray shading around the edges and seams to make the white of the skate pop better. After coloring the skates, I covered the boot part of the skates with Brushable Glue [540] and sprinkled on Sparkling Snow Semi-Transparent Glitter [G1003]. I used the Brushable Glue [540] again on the skate blades, and sprinkled on Sonic Silver Velvet Glitter (microfine) [GM2002]. Here are the skates.

789_02_ChristmasSkates_Skates

I also decorated the eyelets for the lace holes, and the lace hooks. I daubed on some adhesive with the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky]. For the eyelets, I used the beautiful Ocean Semi-Transparent Glitter [G1126]. For the lace hooks, I used the perfect Sonic Silver Velvet Glitter (microfine) [GM2002]. These really added to the skates and made them even sparklier!

789_03_ChristmasSkates_Eyelets

Here is another angle of the skates and all the glitter!!!! 

789_04_ChristmasSkates_Eyelets

I colored the holly and berries with Copic markers. I colored the holly on the card, and on the second image I printed. After coloring and fussy cutting the second image, I busted out the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] again, and added Glistening Emerald Sparkle N Soft [SS102] to the holly leaves and Burgundy Glitz [G1047] to the berries. I layered leaves and berries over the colored images on the card front to give some dimension. You can see the glitter and dimension here.

789_05_ChristmasSkates_Holly

Here is a closeup of the holly leaves and berries and the dimension from the layers. 

789_06_ChristmasSkates_Holly

For the sentiment, I colored the edge of the stitched rectangle with Copic markers, then brushed on Brushable Glue [540] and sprinkled on more Sparkling Snow Semi-Transparent Glitter [G1003]. I also used the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] again and added some glue to the snowflakes in the sentiment. More Sparkling Snow Semi-Transparent Glitter [G1003] was added to those sweet flakes to make them sparkly too!

789_07_ChristmasSkates_Sentiment

This was a really fun card, and these skates are so pretty and fun! I LOVE them! Thanks so much for stopping by, have a magical day! 

Chris
