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!
Here is a finished background panel. The soft sparkle is so pretty!!
Next the image was stamped and colored using Tombow markers along with Tattered Angel Pearl Mist instead of water. This created a beautiful watercolor look along with some soft shimmer.
Sparkle was then added using Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Sparkling Snow and Waterfall glitter. Small drops of Green Apple Crystal Drops were added to the bird feeder let dry and then Glossy Accents were placed on top of the Crystal Drops to give a glass look. Drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the image panel.
The sentiment was stamped and glittered using Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Waterfall glitter. Small branches were die cut using Heartfelt Creations die and a pull ribbon was added to the top right corner. This is a beautiful stamp set, be sure to stop by the store to see all the new stamp sets.
Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day!
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!
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!
Hi! It’s so much fun to play with new stamps. In September Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed Puppy Girl stamp set 793. It is available as rubber and digital sets. digi version is the one I used on this card. I sized the image to fit my card, placed the sentiment next to it and printed them out. Image was colored with Promarkers.
Don’t you just love this adorable little dog!? To make him even cuter, I added a fur to his body with Sakura Glue Pen and Elephant Gray Flocking. Electrified Yellow glitter was added with help of the Sakura Glue Pen to all bows. To make the dog nose shine I covered it with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.
To embellish my card I added some White and Apple Green Nuvo Crystal Drops all around the card.
I have to admit something… I am not a big fan of Neon colors. For some time I was afraid to use them. Neon colors are bright, glitter is sparkling, combination of something bright and sparkly seems too much. So silly of me. These glitters are awesome! The texture of them is wonderful – so soft to touch. And they are not too glittery. It’s almost like microfine version of Sparkle N Soft. I love them!
To make my card background, I adhered strips of 1/2″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the card base, leaving little caps in between. Tape was covered with Exulted Pink, Energized Orange, Exhilarated Green and Electrified Yellow glitters. They are also available as a set – Donna’s Neon Glitter Set.
Image layer is matted to a piece of cardstock which edges was covered with 1/4″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Suede Microfine Glitter. Mostly I use white cardstock for the matting layer. I just color edges of the paper with marker to mach the glitter. This way no white is peeking from the side.

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 an easy to do
I started first by printing then coloring in the
Once that was done I used a Memory Box Square Stitched die cut
I added glue from a Quickie Glue pen to the antlers.
Then quickly added Sparkle N Soft Sparkling Sands flocking
to give the antlers a bit of a ‘velvet’ look.
I also added Nuvo Glitter Drops Golden Sunset to
the deer noses.
I set them aside to dry (overnight) and started working on the gatefold card.
The red card stock was cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, then scored at
2 1/8″ from either side.
The 2 white panels were cut 5 1/4 x 1 7/8.
I used a bone folder to get good creases in the base of the card.
A Memory Box snowflake stencil was used
Sparkling Snow glitter was them sprinkled on.
These were also set aside to dry (overnight)
then I used the Glitter Brush to brush off all excess glitter
Once dry each panel was adhered to the front of the
The sentiment was printed and adhered inside of the card.
I added a tiny velcro dot to the left side of the image to hold the card flat for mailing.
This card was very easy to make and also an easy mailer!
