It’s Designer Jess here with a quick, fun card featuring Rustic Flowers-Snapdragons.
This was such an easy card to put together! To start, print out the gorgeous pre-colored image onto white cardstock. Using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, add your Glitters to the different flowers. I used Dogwood Rose, Ballerina, Tiger Orange and Daisy Glitters on my flowers. Soooo pretty!
I really wanted to emphasize the copper of the gorgeous can holding the flowers. So, I grabbed my Copper Embossing Powder and added some detail using the Nuvo Small Pen – heat setting of course! The results were just gorgeous!
Fussy cut out the entire image, then set aside while you go to work on the background.
To make the background, I took a piece of light green cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder. I just loved the look of the Clematis Vine Tonic Die, so I die cut one out using a darker green cardstock. I attached the embossed panel to the cardbase with 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape, then used the Small Glue Pen once again to adhere my die cut piece of cardstock.
Foam Squares were used to pop up the focal image to give more dimension. I printed off the sentiment onto white cardstock and used the glue pen one more time to add a pop of Copper Embossing Powder to the word “Cheer”. A bit of ribbon was added and I used the Foam Squares again to adhere the sentiment.
Finally, I had tons of fun with the NEW Jewel Drops in Key Lime! I added a bunch of “dots” all over the background, then set aside to dry. I LOVE the finished look! Soooo sparkly! They go on opaque and dry more clear. You HAVE to try them out sometime soon!
Thanks for popping by – and I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas (since this is my last post before Christmas!)
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.
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!!
It’s Designer Jess here with a fun Christmas Card!
This time, I’m featuring the Digital Stamp Set – Grumpy Goose!
Jasper Blue Glitter – GM2012
This was actually quite an easy card to create! I started by printing off the colored Digital Image onto glossy white cardstock and trimming to my desired size. I used the Small Glue Pen to add Jasper Blue & Blue Haze Glitter to his hat, Daisy Glitter to his beak, Tiger Orange Glitter to his feet and Evening Glow Glitter to the bells. So much fun!
I used the Glue Pen to draw the “light strand” around Mr. Grumpy Goose, sprinkled on Antiquities Embossing Powder and heat set. Then I went to work creating the lights! I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Apple Green, Ruby Slippers and Dazzling Blue to make the lights (just squeezing a small amount out each time). I love the effect! I added a few to “frame” the image as well as on the sentiment and set them aside to dry.
While the Crystal Drops were drying, I created by background. I adhered 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape around the edge of my cardbase, removed the adhesive and sprinkled on Fire Engine Red Glitter. I burnished it well with my finger tool.
I took the piece of Gold Mirror Cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot, using a Diamond Patterned Embossing Folder. Once all the Crystal Drops were dry, I adhered all the layers using 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape. To finish off the sentiment, I traced the word “naughty” using the Small Glue Pen and sprinkled on Fire Engine Red Glitter.
I sure had fun making this card! See you next time! 🙂
I have a ‘sparkle-y’ card to share with you today,
using the new stamp set Winter Birdhouse.
I started by laying my 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock
across my scor-board with the 11″ across the top.
Scor at 3 1/8″ and again at 8 5/8″.
Trim card length to be 5 3/8″ long.
It should look something like this.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink,
then colored with Copics.
The panel was then adhered to the left side of the card
with 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape,
sprinkled with Fire Engine Red glitter
and then using my ‘finger’ tool,
For the left side of the card,
I cut a panel to fit,
then embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing snowflake folder.
Fire Engine Red glitter was added to the bird’s scarf and Santa hat.
Sparkle N Soft Sapphire Silk was added to the bird tail and wings.
The glitters were applied with Nuvo SM Glue Pen.
All the ‘snow fluff’ you see was created using
Nuvo Glimmer Paste Moonstone.
I applied it quite thick to resemble snow.
I also added it to a few of the snowflakes.
You can just see a hint of the inside sentiment which is from
the set Eskimo Kisses.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and
thank you for visiting with me!
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!
Hi, Diane with you today to share with you a tutorial of sorts for
my ‘Double Z’ fold card using the new stamp set
This card is really very easy to do and I will give you simple
directions, but there are great tutorials on youtube for it as well.
You want to start with an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of card stock.
Cut one piece 4 1/4″ x 11″
Score this piece (with the 11″ piece along the top)
at 2 3/4″ and at 5 1/2″ (this is the main base of the card)
Cut the next piece 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
Score this piece (with the 8 1/2″ piece along the top)
at 2 1/8″ and at 4 1/4″.
Fold as I have shown below.
Next you want to cut some pretty paper ‘cover’ pieces.
For the larger Z part of the card,
cut 1 at 4″ x 5 1/4″
and cut 2 pieces at 2 1/2″ x 4″
For the smaller part of the Z card,
Cut 1 at 3 1/4″ x 4″
and cut 2 pieces at 1 7/8″ x 3 1/4″
adhere to each z panel as shown
Using the photo below for reference, attach the smaller z panel to the larger z panel
Now we will make leaves for our card using a Mini Mister,
watercolor paper and the colors of Nuance listed below.
Spray your watercolor paper with water, lightly tap on the nuance color,
spray a bit more and repeat until you are happy with the colors
Once dry, cut out the leaves with your desired dies
(I used Impression Obsession small Leaves Dies)
I colored the Autumn Girlfriends image with Copics,
then applying a bit of glue with Nuvo Small glue pen,
I added Fall Leaves Glitter to the image leaves.
I then attached my ‘Nuance” colored leaves.
I stamped the rake and the sentiment with Versamark,
then embossed with Gold Fine Detail embossing powder.
I used Spellbinders Label Four to cut out the sentiment.
I also stamped the basket of leaves and used the same
Fall Leaves glitter as I used above.
I hope you will give one of these double z folds a try as they are really fun
and turn out so beautifully!
Thank you for visiting with me today!
Hi Diane with you today to show you one of our new stamps sets
that I just absolutely think is so beautiful!
It is Christmas Candles Stamp Set.
Though the name is Christmas Candles, it also
has a beautiful Christmas Rose Spray included in the set,
which is what I am using today.
I started by using a new and amazing product called
and the color I used is Pure Platinum.
I used my ‘finger tool’ to apply to an embossed
card stock background.
You can see in the photo below the difference
it made on the top of the panel compared to the bottom half…
a beautiful sheen!
I set this aside to dry and it dries very, very quickly,
then die cut a few branches using Impression Obsession Pine Branch die.
I applied glue using Nuvo Large Glue Pen,
then sprinkling with glitter on that.
While these were drying,
I stamped my image and colored with Copics.
I used the small Nuvo Glue Pen to apply glue and then
Gypsy Red Glitter to the Rose
and Parisian Mist glitter to the leaves.
I then fussy cut my image out.
I die cut a Cherry Lynn Designs Banner,
then applied (once again using my finger)
the Pure Platinum Mousse to it.
Once dry, I embossed my sentiment with Red Apple Embossing Powder.
I adhered the entire panel to red card stock, then added
a pretty red bow to finish.
This is really a gorgeous card and somewhat quick to make
for the upcoming Christmas holiday!
Once again here is the finished card.
Thank you for visiting with me today!
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!
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.
White the paste was still wet, I covered it with
Margarita Velvet Glitter.
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.
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’.
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.
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.
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!
Thank you for visiting with me today!
Happy Sunday to you!
Diane with you today to share a fun card I created with the new
stamp set ‘Halloween Cat‘.
I had an idea for this stamp as soon as I saw it
and hoped it would work…it DID…let me tell how fun and easy
the background moon is to create.
I first used a Mini Mister of water and sprayed it on
regular heavy 100# card stock.
just by tapping the bottom side of the jar .
( I have little holes in each lid that I keep a push in for no spills…
simply easy to remove when I need to use it).
I added more water and more Nuance until I was satisfied with the colors
You can tip your paper to move the colors around,
just be careful not to ‘muddy’ them together.
Set aside to dry completely or use your heat gun as I did.
Next is where my creative idea came in to play.
I asked myself if I could emboss over the Nuance
and that is what I did.
Once your paper is completely dry use your
Static Free Pouch to go over your paper
(this eliminates any embossing powder sticking where you don’t want it)
Ink up your stamp with Versmark
and stamp right over the Nuance colored paper.
Cover with Midnight Madness Embossing Powder,
then heat set.
I then used a circle die to cut out my background moon…
pretty colors aren’t they?
I set that aside and die cut a fence.
I coated the fence with Nuvo Glue Pen (large)
then added Lacy Lilac Glitter.
I next punched out a few bats and once again used the Nuvo Glue Pen
then sprinkled on Black Ice Glitter.
I also punched out a few pumpkins, added the Nuvo Glue Pen,
then coated with Energized Orange Glitter.
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on a scrap piece
of the left over Nuance paper I created,
then embossed with Midnight Madness embossing powder.
I cut it to look like a sign and hung it on the fence.
The backgorund paper is onyx cordinations, embossed with a Sizzix
embossing folder, then sanded. I used a distress tool around the edges
for a more ‘spooky’ look.
I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial!
