Spring Bunny {12.28.2016}

Hello from Designer Chris! I am bringing you a card today showcasing the Spring Bunny stamp set, which is absolutely gorgeous! Let’s check it out.

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 stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink Pad, and then sprinkled on White Detail embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool.

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!

-Chris

Rustic Flowers – Snapdragons

Hello friends!

It’s Designer Jess here with a quick, fun card featuring Rustic Flowers-Snapdragons.

Supply List:

Rustic Flowers-Snapdragons Stamp Set #DIGI00-816P5

Jewel Drops – Key Lime 645N

Copper Embossing Powder – EP236

Tiger Orange Glitter – GM2003

Daisy Glitter – GM2019

Dogwood Rose Glitter – GM2021

Ballerina Glitter – GM2024

Nuvo Glue Pen – Small 202N

Tonic Die – Simply Screens – Clematis Vine – 1047e

Tear-ific Tape – 1/2″ SAT04

Foam Squares – 01613

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.

See that nifty brush? It’s a set that’s now available in the SNS Shop that helps to pop out all the little pieces from intricate die cuts! I LOVE IT! It’s called the Sizzix Die Brush & Foam Set!

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!)

Cheers!

Jess

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

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!

Stella Grinchy Santa [11.16.2016]

Happy Holidays from Designer Chris! Who doesn’t love Stella? She makes me smile and when I saw this new Stella Dear Santa in the November release, I just had to have her 🙂 Let’s see what I did.
804_stellasanta_01_front
Stella definitely wasn’t a good girl this year, and Santa probably won’t be visiting her. She reminded me of the Grinch, so I had to make her green as an homage to one of my favorite holiday characters! I used the Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and rolled on glue to her hat. I sprinkled on Margarita glitter. Then, more glue pen on her hat ruff, and sprinkled on Exhilarated Green glitter. These two greens together were the perfect Grinch colors!
804_stellasanta_02_stellagrinch
I die cut some snowflakes and jazzed them up. I used my finger tool, and burnished on some of the Pure Platinum Nuvo Embellishment Mousse on some of the snowflakes and Blue Topaz Nuvo Glimmer Paste on others. I used Brushable Glue and adhered the snowflakes to my background. Here is what the snowflakes looked like.
804_stellasanta_03_snowflakes I added some texture to my background. I stamped the Crackle Background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with White Detail embossing powder. Then, I placed some strips of Double sided “Tear-ific” Tape over the background. I laid out a strip from the 1/8″, 1/4″ and 1/2″ Double sided “Tear-ific” Tapes. I burnished in Gypsy Red, Margarita, and Evening Glow glitters in the tape strips.
804_stellasanta_04_backgroundsnowflakes

I rolled out more Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and rolled on glue to the “Dear Santa” part of the letter. I added Gypsy Red glitter to make it a bit more fun. Here it is.

804_stellasanta_05_dearsantaI also decorated the ornaments. Whipped out the trusty Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and used it to add adhesive to the ornaments. I sprinkled on Gypsy Red and Margarita glitters to them.804_stellasanta_06_ornamentedgeHere is another shot of the card. Stella makes me happy, even though she is so grumpy and grinchy! So fun and funny!804_stellasanta_07_last
I hope you enjoyed this. I had a lot of fun making it.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Festive Lantern [11.14.2016]

Hi from Designer Chris! I really like this new Festive Lantern stamp set, which is one of Sparkle N Sprinkle’s new releases in November.Let’s peek at the card I made show casing this fun stamp set!
808_lantern_01_front
For this card, I stamped out the lantern image with Versamark Ink and sprinkled on Tuscan Sun embossing powder and heat set it. I die cut the cardstock into an oval. Then, started decorating things up! I wanted the candle to be soft but vibrant. I used markers to add some light behind and around the candle, and then I did something kinda fun and different … I layered up some embossing powders! I started out by rolling on some adhesive with the Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and dusted on Mediterranean embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I re-rolled out more Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and added more embossing powder. But this time I used Blue Silver embossing powder and heat set it over the original layer. This gave some extra depth to my candle. Then, I squeezed on the Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops over the candle to give it some oomph and shine. I also dabbed on some of the Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flame. Then, I added in a little squeeze of Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops to the inside part of the flame. Here is what the candle looked like, after all this fun treatment!
808_lantern_02_candleflame
      .
To give this card a background and frame it, I decided to use the trusty and awesome Kiss Cut technique. I cut a piece of cardstock, and covered it with strips of 2-1/2″ Double sided “Tear-ific” Tape. Then, I ran this through my die cut machine and pulled away the release paper that was cut out. Here is what it looked like at this stage.
808_lantern_03_kisstechniquetapedie
I rubbed in Night Sky Sparkle N Soft into these negative areas that I revealed by removing the release paper. This is what it looked like at this stage, before burnishing in the Night Sky Sparkle N Soft.
808_lantern_04_kisscuttechniqueglitterAfter I finished burnishing in the Night Sky Sparkle N Soft, I pulled away the rest of the release paper and revealed the actual shape of the frame. I burnished in Ocean glitter into the spaces that were revealed. Here is a close up of what the frame looked like after the kiss cut technique! So pretty 🙂
808_lantern_05_frame
I also stamped out the sentiment in Versamark Ink and sprinkled on Black Detail embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I cut it into a rectangle. I swiped on a bit of Nuvo Glue Pen Fine and dusted on Ocean glitter along the edges. This made it connect to the frame as well. And to make it more fun, I squeezed on some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops along the outsides of the sentiment panel. I also highlighted the “light” in the sentiment with a yellow marker.
808_lantern_06_sentiment
This was a really fun card to make and I love how versatile this stamp set is. Let’s peek at it one more time for good measure!
808_lantern_07_last
I hope you enjoyed this card.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!-Chris

Mr. Snowflake Layout

Hello friends!

img_1329

It’s Design Jess here today with a fun layout, featuring Mr. Snowflake (DIGI3127) – a DIGITAL only release this month!

Supply List:

SO this was super fun for me to make!  I started out by printing the colored Digital images onto white cardstock. I used the Wreath, the Snowman and the sentiment.

I fussy cut them all out and then started having fun with my Nuvo Small Glue Pen & Glitter! To add the glitter, I simply drew on the area I wanted it to be using the Glue Pen and then sprinkled on the glitter.  Brush off the excess and voila!

 img_1263

I added Sugar Plum to the wreath, Mr.Snowflake’s scarf and the wreath he is holding. I used Tiger Orange on his carrot nose and Luau Green on his hat!  Blue Haze added a touch of glitter to his gloves & pipe smoke and Sassy Silver on his bells and the sentiment. How easy is that?

 img_1264

Next, I added the Moonstone Glimmer paste to the base of Mr. Snowflake. I used a small spoon to dab the paste on and make it piled up like snow.  Such a fun product!  I also added a row of it to the top of the piece of patterned paper where I put the icicles.  I set it aside to dry (took about an hour). 

I assembled my page layout using various pieces of patterned paper.  I added 2 rows of 1/4″ Tearific Tape across the length of once piece of paper and used Luau Green to add some extra sparkle. Then I tied the Pull Ribbon around the piece of patterned paper.  All of the layers were adhered to the base using 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape. I should mention that this is an 8×8 Layout! 🙂

 img_1262

To finish off the page, I added tons of dots with the Nuvo Crystal Drops!  I used the Morning Dew and Crushed Grape to add tons of dimension and fun. I even “drew” on some icicles!  What do you think?

 img_1330 img_1331 img_1265

I hope you head over to the shop to pick up this fun digital stamp!  Until next time,

Jess
