Good morning all and Happy New Year!!! It’s designer Belinda here to share a cute Easter card with you today using the new Easter Chicky stamp set. I choose to use the digi version of this stamp set for my card.
To create my card base I used Spellbinder’s Radiant Rectangle dies. For the white and yellow background pieces they were cut using sticker paper, glittered with Sparkling Snow and Sunny Daze. The images were then resized and printed out. I did print 2 of the row of flowers and cut all of them out using my Silhouette. Sparkle was added to all of the images using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter. Small drops of Dandelion and Green Apple Crystal Drops were added to the flowers.
The 2nd row of flowers were placed on top of the chick using foam dots. A 2nd flower for the top of the egg shell was printed, cut out and placed on top of the egg using foam dots. Using the small glue pen along the edges of the sentiment, Hyacinth glitter was added. I really love this cute stamp it will be perfect for your Easter cards.
Be sure to visit the store to see all the new stamp sets you will love them all!!

I stamped the bunny on white cardstock with black ink, then sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it. I colored the bunny, eggs, and flowers with Copic markers. Then, I started adding SPARKLE! I rolled out some Nuvo Glue Pen Fine onto the images, and sprinkled on glitter. I added Cloud Nine glitter to the eggs, Bubble Gum glitter to the pink flowers, and Orchid glitter to the purple flowers. The Cloud Nine glitter was perfect for the eggs – even though they are different colors, the Cloud Nine glitter made the eggs really sparkly and still allowed the colors to come through. The eggs look great, don’t you think?
Here is a closeup of some of the flowers and egg here. The glitters made these really pretty!
I layered the card over some die cut shapes and added on some Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops along the outer edge for extra pizazz.
This Spring Bunny stamp set is so adorable and I really had fun making this card. It makes me really happy to see this bunny. I know you will love this set!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
Merry Christmas everyone! The card I share Today is not overly Christmas looking but I think it is suitable for the occasion.
I used Build A Wreath Digital Stamp Set to make the card. It’s fantastic set. You can build your own uniqeu wreaths. I chose the sprig wreath and added leaves and berries. It was time consuming process. But only because I had to make it twice… Right after I finished placing all the leaves and berries to the wreath, and I was happy with the result, I wanted to save my work but computer froze. So, I took a camera and made a photo of my computer screen. After computer was restarted, I imported the photo to computer and used it as a reference guide. At least I didn’t had to re-think placement of the leaves again. But despite everything, it was fun to play with this stamp set.
Image was colored with Promarkers. To the berries I added Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. It dries clear and leaves nice dimensional shine. wreath and the sentiment are cut out with Silhouette machine.
On the background I used wooden pattern paper. To add some interest I made score lines to it and added Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Inks directly to paper. I also sprinkled Super Thick Silver Embossing Powder on top and heated with a heat tool from underneath until powder melted. I also added drops of Wisteria Purple Nuvo Crystal Drops to the pattern paper.
Edged of the pattern paper was distressed with scissors. I took a white lace and colored it with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. Lace was placed to peek out underneath the pattern paper.
If you like Build A Wreath Digital stamp set but prefer rubber stamps, I recommend to keep your eyes open on New Year 😉

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!)
Here is a card in bright Summer colors to light up those long and dark winter nights. I used brand new Rustic Flower – Snapdragons 816 stamp set.
On the focal image I did some paper piecing. First I covered piece of white cardstock with Large Nuvo Glue Pen. While it was drying I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink to another piece of white cardstock. I colored flowers with Promarkers and added some Margarita Velvet Glitter with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to some leaves. Then I returned back to the first piece of cardstock. On top of the sticky glue (Nuvo Glue Pen dries sticky) I added Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. After excess flakes was rubbed away, I stamped the can part of the image with JetBlack StazOn ink on top. This was fussy cut out and glued to the colored image.
Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder. For the background I used white cardstock which was inked with Dandelion Memento and Spun Sugar Distress inks.
I used dies from Creative Expressions Trellis Edger set to add some interest to the background. Inked background is popped up with foam tape. Layer underneath is covered with 3/4″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. I made a glittered ribbon with 1/4″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Daisy Velvet Glitter. Here is a tutorial how to make this kind of pretty ribbons.
To finish off the lattice I added some White Nuvo Crystal Drops to middle of each cross point.
This is it – my bright summer card.

Thank you for the visit,
To start my project I needed to create the background panel. Using a Prima stencil and Blue Topaz Glimmer Paste this was created. I love how pretty and sparkly the paste looks when using it with a stencil. A little sparkle was added around the background panel using Nuvo Small Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow glitter. It really creates beautiful backgrounds for your project. It is a must try!! Once that was finished it was onto the pretty flowers.
The flowers were stamped with versamark onto vellum and embossed using White Spark EP. They were fussy cut out and colored from the backside using copic markers. The smaller flowers were stamped again, steps repeated and placed on top of the larger flowers using foam dots. The leaves were stamped in the same way.
For the flower pot I used left over cardstock that has been covered with glue using the Large Nuvo Glue Pen and then covered with foil, distress using black ink. An embossing folder was inked on the raised side with versamark the foiled cardstock was placed inside the embossing folder and run thourgh the Big Shot. The embossed cardstock was then covered with Golden Sparkle EP and heat set.
I was very pleased with the vintage look. The pot was then stamped with Stazon ink and fussy cut out. Small drops of Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were placed on the flower centers. The flowers and leaves were then arranged in the pot. I placed dots of blue Tombow markers in the corners and put Morning Dew Crystal Drops on top. I really love how the drops picked up the color from the markers.
The sentiment was die cut using a Anna Griffin die, which was inked with versamark and embossed with Indian Spark EP. A second die cut was cut using black cardstock and placed slightly off center to create a shadow effect.
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!!
Today I want to share a card made with my favorite stamp From Sparkle N Sprinkle November Reveal – Winter Blue Jay 809. I can only admire photos of this bird – sadly we don’t have them in Estonia. I actually didn’t even knew that such birds exist…
Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used Promarkers for coloring. To his feathers I added small strokes with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and covered the glue with Denim Microfine Glitter. Leaves on the branch are ‘colored’ with same glue pen. After glue was dried to tacky I added Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes on top.
Flower is made with Creative Expressions Delicate Daisies Open Petals die set. I added some color with Salty Ocean Distress ink. In center of flower is a glitter dot made with Dazzling Blue Nuvo Glitter Drops. I didn’t add Glitter Drop directly to flower center. I made a big drop to the Tear-ific Tape backing and let it set. After it was dry I placed it to the flower. I love this color.
Leaves are cut with Creative Expressions Faux Quilled Leaves die out of Sticker Paper. They are covered with Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes.
Edges of the image layer are inked with Salty Ocean Distress ink. Then I took Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen and added glue all around the edges. After glue was dry I adhered Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes on top.
I love to make glittered matting layers. I placed 1/4″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to all around the matting layer edges, adhered image layer on center and covered rest of the tape with Denim Microfine Glitter. To finish off my card I added some small dots of White Nuvo Crystal Drops and Dazzling Blue Nuvo Glitter Drops.

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! 🙂
