Your card is so adorable with that cute little hatching chick on it. A great idea for a baby card with the onesie design.

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.

Stella – Happy Meds

Stella Happy Meds 796

Anne here and today I’m sharing a card created with one of the new stamp sets revealed this month: Stella – Happy Meds.  This image should definitely make you smile. 🙂

 

After stamping the image and coloring it with Copic markers, I added Dimensional Glue and Sunny Daze glitter to various letters. I also outlined other words with a red Multi-liner to make them pop a bit more. The pink pills and Stella’s glasses were covered with Glossy Accents for a real shine.

Stella - Happy Meds1

 

 

To create the mat, I used the lacy background technique with Sticker Paper, lace, and Sunny Daze and Blue Haze glitters. This is such an easy and fun technique and with so many variations, depending on the style of lace and the colors of glitter you use. For some reason, this one reminds me of a leopard print, even though the colors are different.

 

For embellishments, I created my own glitter ribbon using 1/2″ Tear-ific tape and Blue Haze glitter and added a few Nuvo Crystal Drops (Navy Blue) as accents. Crystal Drops also accent the corners of my lacy background. The background matting behind the focal point was dry embossed with a Crafters Companion embossing folder (Hessian) for a bit of texture.

Eskimo Kisses

Eskimo Kisses 788

 

Anne here with today’s post and I’m showcasing the newly released stamp set called Eskimo Kisses.

 

After stamping the image onto white cardstock and coloring it with Copic markers, I die cut the rectangle using a Simon Says Stamp die (Stitched Rectangles). The patterned cardstock mat behind the focal panel was die cut using a Sue Wilson Designs die (Noble Dies – Double Pierced Rectangles – Set B).

Dimensional Glue was added to her ear muffs, coat collar and sleeve, and to the top of her boots. Dimensional glue was also added to the pom-pom on the snowman’s hat. Then Swan Song tinsel glitter was applied over the dimensional glue. Once that was dry, I highlighted various areas of the snowman and the snow with a Sakura glue pen and covered the glue with Olaf White glitter.

 

Falling Snow was added to the snowy scene by using a stencil (Simon Says Stamp – Falling Snow) and Dreamweaver White Embossing Paste.  I layered the embossing paste on fairly thick, and after the stencil was removed, I covered the wet embossing paste with more Olaf White glitter.

Eskimo Kisses1 - SNS

For the matting, I added more snow by using a Memory Box stencil (Winter-Scattered Flakes), embossing paste, and Olaf White glitter.  You can really see the dimension of the falling snow as well as the tinsel glitter in the photo to the left.

 

A ribbon imprinted with snowy words is the finishing touch.

Roses Squeeze Box

Roses 784

 

Anne here with a new post showcasing the single stemmed roses from the Roses stamp set revealed this month and the Tonic Studios Diamond Favour Squeeze Box.  The squeeze box die set has a whopping 17 dies included so that you can mix and match inserts as well as cutting edges.  When you squeeze the sides of this box, it opens up into a square so that you can fill it with some little goodies.

 

Rose Squeeze Box1 - SNS

I used some Super Adhesive Sheets and the kiss cut technique for each of the focal panels. After die cutting and removing the background area release paper, I covered the adhesive with Cloud Nine velvet glitter, burnishing it in with my finger tip. After removing the remaining release paper, I covered the adhesive with Sparkle N Soft flock (Glistening Emeralds) and burnished it in with my finger. These panels are so soft and smooth that you can’t help but run our fingers all over them.

 

For the Roses, I stamped both single stem roses that come in the stamp set, colored them with Copic markers, and then fussy cut each of them. I added a bit of Bubble Gum glitter around the edges of the petals.

 

The four triangular side panels were also die cut from a Super Adhesive Sheet. All were covered with Cloud Nine velvet glitter.

 

Rose Squeeze Box2 - SNS

On the back side, I used a different cutting edge for the center panel, but used the same kiss cut technique and products as the front panels.

 

The sentiment, which is part of the stamp set, was stamped with black ink and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder. I also used a Sakura glue pen to draw a fine line of glue around the edge of the die cut and added more Cloud Nine velvet glitter to give it a bit of sparkle.

 

This squeeze box is such a fun die cut and there are so many options for cutting it and so many ways you could embellish it. I think it would make a great treat bag or gift bag. It’s approximately 4 1/2″ tall once it’s assembled (and assembling is so easy.)

Wild Roses

Hello, Diane with you today,

One of the beautiful June release stamp sets is Wild Rose.

I have made a pretty card just by adding a few simple techniques.

Wild Roses

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink,

then colored with Copics.

I then, fussy cut the image out.

For the background of the Roses, I thought lattice would be pretty,

I adhered a piece of Super Adhesive Sheets to a white card stock

and using a Spellbinders Lattice die, cut it out.

Wild Roses

Once cut, I pulled the protective layer off the front and coated it with

Cloud Nine glitter.  I used a Glitter Brush to brush off all the excess.

Wild Roses

It was then adhered to a background paper.

The Roses were placed on next with foam squares.

Wild Roses

I die cut a few butterflies, chose one, added brushable glue and coated with

Bubble Gum glitter.

To finish I stamped the sentiment in Versamark, and heat embossed with

Silver Detail embossing powder.  Lastly a bow was added.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

From My Garden To You

Roses 784; Roses DIGI784

 

Anne here with today’s blog post.  I used both the digi version and the rubber stamp version of the Roses stamp set to create this card.

I used the digi version to enlarge the blossom and stamped the rubber version on white cardstock to create my background mat.  The focal point was colored with Copic markers, fussy cut out, and then I applied Clear embossing powder, followed by Sparkle embossing powder.

Roses1 - SNS

This gives it a different look than if I only used the Sparkle embossing powder. You can see the difference between the blossom, which looks shiny with bits of glitter embedded into it versus the bottom solid card mat, which just has Sparkle embossing powder adhered to it. The blossom looks shiny and feels smooth whereas the bottom mat has more texture that you can both see and feel.

I die cut some glossy white cardstock from a Spellbinders die (Labels Twenty Eight) and then added Distress Ink (Abandoned Coral) over it. To give it a textured look, I used a sea sponge over the base coat. Nuvo Crystal Drops (Gloss White) were added to either side.

To create the patterned mat, I randomly stamped the rose image over a piece of white cardstock using Abandoned Coral Distress Ink. While the ink was still wet, I added Clear embossing powder and heat set it. Next I added color to the cardstock by applying Distress Ink (Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin) with a blending tool.

The sentiment, which is part of the stamp set was stamped with Black Soot onto vellum and heat set with Clear embossing powder. A strip of crinkle ribbon and bow add the finishing touches to this card.

Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing - SNS

 

Anne here and today I want to share with you a card I created using the digi version of the new Gone Fishing stamp set.

Copics were used to created the sky and various glitters were added to give the sky highlights. Starting from the top and working my way down, I added Hyacinth, Fairy Tale Lavender, Pink Jewels, Flaming Orange, Daisy, and Hanauma Bay.

The frame around the silhouette was a Spellbinders die (Labels Twenty-Eight) and I covered it with Dark Night embossing powder. This is such a cool color as it looks different depending on which way you hold it in the light.

I also pop dotted each of my layers, with the focal point being adhered directly to the card base, then the Dark Night frame a little higher, and ending with the white mat being the highest, giving it almost a tunnel effect.

I “painted” the first black mat with Nuvo Crystal Drops (Ebony Black gloss) for a shiny effect and I also added some Nuvo Glitter Drops (Purple Rain) to the sides.

So even though this is a masculine card, it still has lots of shimmer and shine. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t you glitter on a guy card :-).
