Staz-On Ink Pad

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.

Wetlands

Hi! It’s Eret here. I was very excited then Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed those two stamp sets: Wetlands 1 #790, Wetlands 2 #791. They are amazing! I used both of them to make this simple card.
IMG_0249

Stamping is done with StazOn Black Jet ink. After the scene was created I took bunch of Distress Inks and started to add colors. For the sky I used Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean. Actually water is also colored with same inks but main color was Salty Ocean while for the sky it was Seedless Preserves.

IMG_0244

I didn’t want to add any embellishment on this card. I just stamped the sentiment with Versamark in and heat embossed it with Gold Detail embossing powder. Matting layer is also inked with Versamark in and heat embossed with same powder to match the sentiment.

Roses

Hi, Diane with you today with a very fun technique to share with you.

I am going to show you how to do a quick ‘stained glass’ Rose.

One of the new June stamp sets is “Roses”, a perfect set for this technique!

Roses

Start by stamping the rose on a piece of embossable plastic with a

permanent ink (I used black Staz-on).  I also tried Memento Tuxedo Black ink

and it worked, though I had to let it dry for quite a while so as not to smear.

Roses

Pour out a small drop, maybe nickel size of Diamond Glaze or Crystal Effects

on your craft mat.  Add a few drops of a ‘dye’ re-inker in the color you want you rose

and mix in.

Roses

Flip your rose over to the back side and start coloring it in with a paint brush.

Let dry completely (it dries very quickly, but be patient), then do the same with a green for your leaves.

I used Distress ink refills raspberry for the rose and

peeled paint for the leaves.  Let completely dry again.

Once dry, pour another drop of the glaze on your mat and once again add to the back of your rose, this time do not add any color.

While still wet, add your choice of glitter to the back.  I used Cloud Nine glitter and it seemed to be the perfect choice.  Set aside to dry again.

Roses

While the rose is drying find a die that will make a ‘window’ over the rose and die cut

on your card front.

You will be using the ‘negative’ part of the die.  I embossed this using a vine

embossing folder.

Stamp your sentiment in Versamark, then coat with Irish Spring embossing powder and heat set.

This is such a pretty embossing powder, all sparkle-y  and glittery !

Place your Rose behind the negative cut out using Tear-ific Tape 1/4″, Then adhere

to a card base.  Add your bow and your sentiment.

 

This is really an easy technique, it is just being patient to let it dry in-between.

Thank you for visiting with me today

Anne here and today I’m sharing one of the new stamp sets revealed this month, Secret Garden.  I started out by stamping the image and sentiment onto watercolor paper using Jet Black StazOn ink.  Then I used Nuance powders to watercolor the image.  Silver Sonic velvet glitter was added to the lock and key and Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the flower centers.

Secret Garden1 - SNS

The background was created by dry embossing a piece of white cardstock with a Sue Wilson Designs embossing folder (Climbing Vines).  Next I covered the surface with VersaMark, then White Spark embossing powder, and heat set it.  The ivy vines are die cuts from the Sue Wilson Designs Trailing Ivy die set.

Ocean Treasures

Hi! It’s designer Eret here. I love the sea. It was pure joy to use a Ocean Treasures #560 stamp set to make this card.

Ocean Treasures #560

I inked the white cardstock with Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress Inks and Summer Sky Memento ink. Then I applied Versamark ink on top and covered it with Velvet Sparkle EP. After melting the powder with heat tool, I stamped the grass with StazOn Jet Black ink. It is die cut with oval die. I matted it on top of the larger oval which was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Satin Velvet EP.

Ocean Treasures #560

All the seashells are stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Satin Velvet EP. I colored images with Promarkers, covered them with Versmark ink and heat embossed with Opaline EP to make them shiny. They are fussy cut with scissors. Some of the shells are adhered with foam tape and others are glued right to the background.

Ocean Treasures #560

For the embellishments I used some twine and Mon Ami Gabby large and small Pearl Mesh cut in parts. Label shape under neath the oval is die cut out of white cardstock Which was covered with 2 1/2″ Double Sided “Tear-ific Tape” and Terrific Blue glitter.

Ocean Treasures #560

Background is covered with 2 1/2″ Double Sided “Tear-ific Tape”. I used x-acto knife to cut the protective sheet of the tape in parts. Then I started to “paint” the scene with glitters: Terrific Blue to the frame, Florida Beach to the sand, Waterfall to the sea and Cloud Nine to the sky.

beauty in simple things

Hi everyone! Ashley here with my first guest post at Sparkle N Sprinkle. I’m excited to share a card I created with one of the new April release stamps Spring Window (704).

I wanted to reflect on the simple part of this sentiment. So to keep my card sort of simple, I stamped the image with StazOn Jet Black  onto vellum and set it aside to dry.

Then I used a mini brick stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop + Dreamweaver white embossing paste to create a brick background. Once the embossing paste dried, I used three Tim Holtz distress inks to color blend the brick background in shades from pink to yellow. I adhered the stamped vellum image over the top of the inked brick background.

Next I added 1/2″ Tear-ific tape (SAT04) around the edges of my vellum piece and sprinkled it with Sunset opaque glitter (G1040). Finally I adhered my vellum piece to a pink cardstock base and then used the same color of cardstock to stamp my sentiment. I used Black Detail (EP171) embossing powder for the sentiment.

All Things Grow Better with Love

Hi everyone! It’s Anita here today and it is my turn to share a project with you using fabulous Sparkle N Sprinkle products!

I have a layout today that I created using some very young photos of DD2 and some very pretty stamps!

The Garden Fairies Stamp Set was just so cute- I knew as soon as I saw it that I needed to create something with it!

I used the vine to create a border above and below my cut papers- a subtle but effective way to add detail.

I stamped my tags with Crystal Medallion and heat embossed with Lilac Spark EP. I added some Memories Mist in Bright Gold to bring out the embossing. I used Super Adhesive Sheets and Spellbinder’s dies to cut the frames behind the photos, then burnished them with Dogwood Rose GL- LOVE this color!!

I stamped the mushrooms and fairie from Garden Fairies multiple times, colored and cut out. I layered them over and under my chipboard piece using pop dots on some for more dimension. I used Pear EP on the chipboard piece.

Here is a close up of the vine stamp- I used a chalk ink to make it really stand out.

To see all the details on this project, please visit My Gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Have an amazing week!

Hi everyone, I hope you had a fabulous weekend!

It’s Anita here today to share a project with you.

This photo is my beloved Gussie in 1930- she was 15 years old!

I started by layering and distressing my background papers and fussy cutting some elements from another sheet of patterned paper. I stamped with Flourishes 2 in the upper right corner.

For this piece, I masked off the inside of the image and stamped the outer edge with the Crackle Background stamp, then heat embossed with Pearl EP.

For the birdcages I stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Shimmer SP. The butterfly is from stamp the new Fancy Butterflies set- I love it!

For directions and supplies used, please see My Gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week!

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far.
It’s Anita here today to share a project with you.
This month the new stamp sets were amazing!
Here is my little orphan kitty that we adopted last year. He wandered up onto our porch with two broken hips, poor little baby! He had been hit by a car. Of course we ran him straight to the vet, and worked on getting him healed. He is a bit rambunctious these days and you would never know that he had both hips broken at only 9 months old.
I have used Bazzill cardstocks, Pink Paislee Journal cards, Tim Holtz grungeboard letters,
punches and wood from American Crafts on my layout.
I cut this film reel with my Cameo, and I added a thin line of Velvet Glitter down each side using 1/8″ Tear-ific Tape.
I used Stickum and Glitter on the punched border behind the photo. I have a tutorial on how to use Stickum HERE. I used the new Leafy Flourish Stamp behind my photo strip.
Here is another look at the Leafy Flourish stamp, I embossed with Detail Black EP. I inked the squares behind the letters, and embossed the letters themselves to make them standout.
I used two colors of Embossing Powder on the wood banner. I masked off the top portion to emboss the flags, then reversed the process to emboss the top. I also used the circles from the new Journal Mixed Media set.
My sentiment is from the new Camera Life set, and I used the Stickum technique on the chipboard swirls. I finished off by dripping some ink on the background.
