Build A Flower

Build A Flower 811

 

Anne here and today I’m showcasing this fun new set called Build A Flower that was revealed this month. There are so many different combinations that can be used – long and tall, short and squat, single flower…. and the list goes on and on ūüėÄ.  This would be a really fun stamp set to decorate the side of a scrapbook page too or create a fun frame around a photo.

 

As you can tell, I decided to go long and tall. I began by stamping the flower pot and then masking it so I could stamp the stems. Then I used the smaller blossom stamp to add flowers to the stems. Finally, the leaves were added. I also stamped the flowers and leaves on plain cardstock so I could fussy cut them out and adhere them on top of the ones on the main image. Everything was then colored with my Copic markers.

 

I had originally stamped everything onto white cardstock. Once everything was coming together, I decided that I didn’t want it white, nor did I want to color all that white space with Copics. I created a mask of the entire stamped image by photocopying it on my printer and then fussy cutting that out.

 

I recommend that you do the photocopying before adding the glitter to the base flowers though, otherwise, you might get glitter on your printer glass (ask me how I know this ūüėú.) Once my mask was ready, I adhered it with some temporary double sided tape and then lightly spritzed the entire area with Memories Mist (Pale Ale). A nice side effect was that it gave my mask a nice sepia look, which could always be used on a future project.

 

Build A Flower 811

 

I added Purple Dust glitter to the veins and out sie edges of my flowers. I also outlined the outside edges of the flowers on the main image with glue and covered them with Purple Dust glitter as well. that way, when I added my offset blossoms, everything would be sparkly. Dimensional glue was added to the centers of the flowers and covered with Evening Glow glitter.

 

The sentiment, which comes with the stamp set was heat embossed with Amethyst embossing powder. The black frame around my image is a die cut from Impression Obsession (All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2). In order to make it into a square, I took one of the frames that fit my sentiment, cut it in the center and adhered the ends together. To make the seams less noticeabBuild A Flower 811le, I heat set the frame with Ebony Spark embossing powder.  This also gave the frame a subtle bit of sparkle.

 

The bee is part of a retired die from Die-Versions (Wee Petites – Buggy). I die cut him from white cardstock and colored him with Copic markers. Glue was added to the inside of his wings and covered with Starfire glitter.

 

The die cuts that border the sides of the focal point are from Tonic Studios and is actually a Christmas die (Christmas Strips – Merry Christmas die set)! I cut off the parts that I wanted, covered them with VersaMark and heat set each of them with Sparkle embossing powder. Although the camera didn’t capture the subtle sparkle of these die cuts, you can definitely see it in person. A bit of Mon Ami Gabby ribbon are the finishing touches.

Bloom with Happiness

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.

To the edges of the matting layers I added¬†1/4″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape¬†and¬†Margarita¬†Velvet Glitter. ¬†Some Green Apple¬†Nuvo Crystal Drops¬†was also added to the card.

This is it – my bright summer card.

Spring Bunny

Hello friends!
 
 
It’s Designer Jess here today with another fun Easter card!
 

Supply List:

 
This card was super fun to make and came together quite quickly. There is a lot of embossing, so let’s get going!

 Card Instructions

To start with, I did my embossing on the outside edges of both the pink layer, green layer and cardbase. What I did was take the main image stamp and used the bottom portion (the flowers, eggs and grass) and used it to stamp all along the edges of the panels!  I used Versamark Ink and then sprinkled on my Embossing Powders!  I used Rosa Embossing Powder on the pink layer and cardbase. Pineapple Embossing Powder was used on the green layer. 
To make the doily, I covered the entire white doily with Versamark Ink and sprinkled on Princess Rose Embossing Powder, heat setting of course! ūüôā
 
 
Once I was done with all those parts, I set those pieces aside and started on my main image. ¬†I stamped the image onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink, sprinkled on Black Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. ¬†For coloring, I grabbed my Watercolor Pencils, an aquapainter and went to work! ¬†I am still an amateur with coloring, but I think I’m improving ūüôā
 
 
The image was fussy cut out after it was dry (TIP: Use a heat gun to speed up drying time!).  I covered the entire image in Versamark Ink, sprinkled on Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It created such a gorgeous shine!
 
The sentiment was stamped onto some white cardstock using Versamark Ink. I embossed with Black Detail Embossing powder. I actually separated the sentiment in half and did a swash of watercolor on the background too.
 
  

 Putting It All Together

To start assembly, I used the Large Nuvo Glue Pen to adhere the embossed doily to the pink layer. The pink layer was attached to the green layer using 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape.I popped the fussy cut focal image up with some Foam Squares.
 
¬†I also created a fun “grass” border simply by cutting a 1″ strip of green cardstock randomly and bending them a bit. Fun, right? ¬†I realized after that I should have grabbed my Grassy Green Flocking to add to the dimension – next time! The border was also attached using 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape. I tied a bit of bakers twine around the panel for added fun.
 
The entire panel was adhered to the card base using 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape. ¬†I used a mini-stapler to attach a bit of frayed bakers twine behind the sentiments and popped them ofn using Foam Squares.¬†
 
   
 
I hope you enjoy this card! ¬†Don’t forget to grab your fave SNS products from the shop!
 
Until next time,
 
Jess

Wishing Ewe a Wonderful Day

Will Ewe Be Mine 813

 

Anne here on the blog today and I’m featuring the new Will Ewe Be Mine stamp set released this month. There are several different sentiments, so it’s for more than just for Valentine’s. I combined two of the sentiments for an all-occasion type of card.

Will Ewe Be Mine 813

I stamped the image twice so I could fussy cut out their heads and pop dot them onto the main image. These cute guys were colored with Copic markers and the hearts and string were outlined with a red Copic multiliner before being covered with Neon Flamingo glitter.

 

The image was then die cut using the new Sizzix/Tim Holtz Snowglobe die set. The strip at the bottom of the globe and the outside edge of the globe was covered with Cloud Nine velvet glitter.

 

As I mentioned before, I used two of the sentiments and stamped them together on one line. The stamps were stamped with Memento Ink (Rose Bud) and then quickly covered with Clear Detail embossing powder. Even though this is a dye ink, if you act quick enough, you can heat emboss with it. (Have you container of embossing powder open and ready to pour as soon as you’ve stamped!)

 

Will Ewe Be Mine 813

The sentiment was then die cut using the Fishtail Flags die from My Favorite Things. I also added a couple of pop dots under the die cut and wrapped a strip of 1/8″ Tear-ific Tape around the end. I added more Neon Flamingo glitter to the top and used the tape that was wrapped underneath the flag to adhere to the card base.

Faith in Wings

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…

Faith in Wings

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.

Faith in Wings

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder.

Faith in Wings

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.

Faith in Wings

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.

Winter Birdhouse

Winter Bird House 803

 

Anne here and today I’m showcasing the new Winter Birdhouse stamp sets.  It is one of the new Bugaboo stamp sets released from Sparkle N Sprinkle this month. This was so much fun to color with my Copic markers.

 

winter-birdhouse1-sns

A Spellbinders die (Labels Twenty-Five) was used to die cut the image. Nuvo Crystal and Glitter Drops were used to accent various areas on the image. White Blizzard was applied to the snow and icicles; a double application of Morning Dew was added to the ornaments (let dry between applications); Ruby Slippers to the pom-pom on the bird’s pink hat and Bubble Gum glitter was adhered to the body of the hat.

 

For the next layer, I used the new Nuvo Glimmer Paste (Blue Topaz). If you haven’t used this product yet, you should definitely put it on your wish/want/NEED list :-). I love using embossing paste, but this is so much easier (even though embossing paste is easy to use) and so fun to use. (It’s really hard to describe.)

 

I placed a The Crafters Workshop stencil (Mini Aboriginal) onto white cardstock and then covered it with Blue Topaz glimmer paste. After it was dry, I spritzed the cardstock with Dylusions Ink Spray (Lemon Zest). The glimmer paste acted like a resist and wasn’t effected. This was die cut using the same Spellbinders die and then cut into thirds. Tear-ific Tape was used to adhere all the layers together.

 

winter-birdhouse2-sns

 

The sentiment is from a different Bugaboo rubber stamp set, Deer Duo. I added more Blue Topaz to a white circle and let that dry. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Deer Duo set with Archival Ink onto the glimmer paste. I used a marker to color in the letters on the ornaments (STOP). This was pop-dotted for added dimension.

Winter Birdhouse

I have a ‘sparkle-y’ card to share with you today,

using the new stamp set Winter Birdhouse.

Winter Bird House

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.

Winter Bird House

It should look something like this.

Winter Bird House C

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,

burnished in

Winter Birdhouse

For the left side of the card,

I cut a panel to fit,

then embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing snowflake folder.

Winter Bird House

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.

Winter Bird House F

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.

Winter Bird House E

I hope you enjoyed my card today and

thank you for visiting with me!

Warm Wishes

Good morning everyone, it’s Belinda here this morning to share a card with you using the new Winter Bird House stamp set.

Winter Bird House

To get my card started I need to create my background panel.  Using the supplies in the below picture, Super Adhesive Sheets, Sparkling Sand Flocking and a embossing folder the panel was create.

Winter Bird House

Here is a finished background panel.  The soft sparkle is so pretty!!

Winter Bird House

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.

Winter Bird House

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.

Winter Bird House

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!

Belinda
