Happy Sunday!! Diane with you today
with a gorgeous new stamp set called
I love flowers and this stamp set is any
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.
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
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!
Here is my full supply list (you can click on each product to find it in the Shop):
Phew! Now that the list is out of the way, onto the card itself!
First I started by making my background. I took the sentiment stamp from “The Christmas Skate” stamp set and randomly stamped it across my paper using Versamark Ink. Then, I sprinkled on the Mojito Marbled Embossing Powder and heat set, making my own patterned paper background! I set that aside and sent to work on my coloring. I stamped the skate image using Versamark and used Black Detail Embossing Powder to create my outline. I took my TwinTouch markers and colored in the image (I like to use the Stamp Card as a guide to help me with my coloring! 😉 ). ONce I was done, I die cut out the entire image using a large oval. I added some Reflection Velvet Glitter to the skate blades using my Quicky Glue Pen as my adhesive. The Glue Pen is always an essential product to have on hand!
To make the glitter background piece, I took a piece of Sticker Paper and die cut out a large Label Frame. I removed the protective backing and sprinkled on the Victorian Christmas Glitter, burnishing well with my finger tool! I mostly did the edges as I knew the middle would be covered by the skate image and I don’t want to waste my beautiful glitter!
Once my glitter was well burnish, I took a few strips of 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape and attached the colored skate image to the glittered background sticker paper and then again to the background. I tied 2 pieces of the MonAmiGabby Pull Ribbon around the card panel and made the gorgeous bow. I just love pull ribbon, don’t you?
The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white cardstock using Versamark Ink and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. I die cut it out using a smaller oval and then gently rolled the edges into my Versamark Pad. I sprinkled on Moss Star Embossing Powder and heat set. I popped up the sentiment using Foam Squares and then attached the entire card panel to my base using Tear-ific Tape.
To finish the card, I used my Ruby Slippers Nuvo drops to create “brads” in the corners and I created a holly leaf & berries next to the sentiment using Woodland Green Crystal Drops & Ruby Slippers Glitter Drops.
I hope you are inspired to get a start on your Christmas Cards now – I sure am!
Until next time,
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.
To start this card, I stamped the background image using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder.
I used both the leaf stamps along with some craft ink in a light green, then sprinkled on Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set! I added a second layer of leaves using a darker green craft ink and repeated the same process of adding Clear Detail Embossing Powder & heat setting! I love that you can use any color craft ink and Clear Detail Embossing Powder!!! Such a great trick. I also stamped on the crane with Versamark and used Pebbled Copper Embossing Powder.
Next, I grabbed my Nuance Turquoise Watercolor Powder and my aqua painter to add some pretty blue water to the lake. I also stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and heat set using Pebbled Copper Embossing Powder.
Lastly, I mounted the entire panel onto some green cardstock using 1/4″ Tearific Tape.
I hope you enjoy this card and head over to the shop to grab some of the great supplies!
Until next time,
A rose is one of my favorite flowers and since I am in Omaha right now, visiting with my mother, I am really enjoying all her roses. She has so many bushes and even climbing roses. She also has some lovely pink wild roses. There is something about their delicate look that is so appealing. I tried to tie that into today’s card featuring the Wild Rose set and simple white layers with elegant lines.
I started with a white layer with the right side punched by a border punch. A piece of sticker paper was layered behind it and Ballerina Velvet Glitter was added. This was layered on the white card base.
The Wild Rose image was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink on watercolor paper and colored with Zig Watercolor Markers. The sentiment was stamped beneath the image and this was die cut with a Spellbinders’ Labels Seventeen Etched Die and layered on top of a slightly larger white die cut and added to the card front. Dots of Sunny Daze Glitter was added to the flower centers, using a glue pen.
Along with this lovely floral image, this set comes with four sentiments making it great to use for a variety of occasions.
It’s Designer Jess back with another GORGEOUS card for the June Release! This time, I did a lot of fussy cutting and I think it sure added a ton of WOW factor to the card!
To begin my card, I started by watercoloring a piece of Watercolor Paper using the Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders. I simply sprinkled some of the powder on and created a sort of ombre effect using my aquapainter. I dried the paper using my heat tool (although you could just simply set it aside to dry – I was impatient! hehe). Then, I used my Wild Rose Stamp and Memento Black Ink to stamp flowers all over my watercolor background. Then I grabbed my paper snips and started cutting out all those gorgeous flowers!
Once all my flowers were cut out, I started to create the card itself. I used a square piece of Watercolor Paper and stamped a full set of flowers in the corner using Memento Black Ink. I took my Jade Nuance Watercolor powder and painted in my leaves. Now is where the fun comes in! I started piecing back together my flowers using my fussy cut pieces! I popped some up on Foam Squares for added dimension and texture to the card. I also used my Quicky Glue Pen (a MUST HAVE in your craft stash!) and added some Hyacinth Glitter to the center of some of the flowers. I stamped the “Happy Birthday” Sentiment using Versamark Ink and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. Simple and elegant I think!
To finish my card, I added some green and purple cardstock layers. I used Embossing Folders (Diamond Pattern and Brick Pattern) to emboss both my background and my cardbase itself. I also added a natural fiber ribbon from my stash. All layers were attached with 1/8″ Tear-ific Tape. This stuff holds EVERYTHING together perfectly well. Such a versatile and amazing adhesive product. I added some layers on the inside as well as another sentiment stamped with Versamark and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. I also added an extra color brush stroke with my Aquapainter and Watercolor Powder. Just a little finishing touch.
I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do. I sure had fun making it.
Until next time,
