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.

Lantern Festive Lantern set is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink to the white cardstock. I colored it with Promarkers. To the metal part of the lantern I added glue with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen. After glue was dry I covered it with Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. I also added some shading with Gold and Copper Gel pens. After die cutting it with Oval die I covered glass part of the lantern with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. Edge of the Oval is covered with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Gypsy Red glitter.
Flowers are from same Festive Lantern stamp set. I stamped them six times with Tuxedo Black Memento ink to the white cardstock. They are colored with Promarkers and fussy cut with scissors. I added some glue with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to flower centers. After glue was dry I covered them with Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. Middle flowers are popped up with foam tape.
To make a background I just took an old pattern paper, added glue with Large Nuvo Glue Pen to the Crackle Background stamp and stamped it to the paper. I cleaned the stamp right away and let the glue dry on the paper. Then I took Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes again and placed it on top of the stamped pattern.
Matting layer and die cut label shape behind the oval are covered with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes. It is important to let the glue dry before adding gilding flakes. Nuvo glue is drying tacky, so it’s perfect for gilding flakes. Some White Nuvo Crystal Drops was also added in to corner of my card.

Hi! It’s so much fun to play with new stamps. In September Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed Puppy Girl stamp set 793. It is available as rubber and digital sets. digi version is the one I used on this card. I sized the image to fit my card, placed the sentiment next to it and printed them out. Image was colored with Promarkers.
Don’t you just love this adorable little dog!? To make him even cuter, I added a fur to his body with Sakura Glue Pen and Elephant Gray Flocking. Electrified Yellow glitter was added with help of the Sakura Glue Pen to all bows. To make the dog nose shine I covered it with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.
To embellish my card I added some White and Apple Green Nuvo Crystal Drops all around the card.
I have to admit something… I am not a big fan of Neon colors. For some time I was afraid to use them. Neon colors are bright, glitter is sparkling, combination of something bright and sparkly seems too much. So silly of me. These glitters are awesome! The texture of them is wonderful – so soft to touch. And they are not too glittery. It’s almost like microfine version of Sparkle N Soft. I love them!
To make my card background, I adhered strips of 1/2″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the card base, leaving little caps in between. Tape was covered with Exulted Pink, Energized Orange, Exhilarated Green and Electrified Yellow glitters. They are also available as a set – Donna’s Neon Glitter Set.
Image layer is matted to a piece of cardstock which edges was covered with 1/4″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Suede Microfine Glitter. Mostly I use white cardstock for the matting layer. I just color edges of the paper with marker to mach the glitter. This way no white is peeking from the side.

Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored it with Promarkers. I added Sakura Glue Pen to both ends of the fabric? roll she’s holding and covered the glue with Merlot microfine glitter. Buttons are covered with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to add some shine to them. I cut out the image and left a narrow white border all round. It’s adhered to the card with Clear Foam Roll.
Background was very fun to make. First I cut a pattern paper in little squares, inked their edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink, pierced the holes and draw a faux stitching lines with white gel pen. Then I covered piece of cardstock(slightly smaller then a card base) with a 2 1/2″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. I adhered all the pattern paper squares to the tape and covered rest of the tape with Merlot microfine glitter.
For embellishments I used a bit of white lace and strip of Mon Ami Gabby Pearl Mesh. I also die cutted few buttons with Nellie Snellen Round Lily die out of white cardstock. I colored them with yellow marker and added a coat of Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drop. After it was dry I tied a piece of white thread through the holes.
Background layer was adhered to the card base with thin foam tape.

It is Christmas In July at Sparkle N Sprinkle with all the new Christmas sets. E. Marie here to share a card using the new Christmas set, Milton Catching Snowflakes. This guy is adorable with his scarves and comes with four great sentiments.
I chose to create a “gap” card since I have seen so many great samples lately. Most of these cards actually leave an actual gap between the top and bottom front sections, held together by an image or sentiment, but I chose to support this one with a piece of acetate.
The image was heat embossed with Detail Black embossing powder and colored with copic markers. Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter was added to the scarves and snowflake using a glue pen. This was layered to the right side of the card.
I used the digital version of this set to print the sentiment and layered this on the inside of the card so the sentiment would show in the open gap. Here is a picture of the inside. I added white layers on the inside top and bottom of the card front to make it look neater and cover any exposed adhesive from adding the acetate.
I know you will love playing with this card style and hope you enjoyed seeing this cute set.
A rose is one of my favorite flowers and since I am in Omaha right now, visiting with my mother, I am really enjoying all her roses. She has so many bushes and even climbing roses. She also has some lovely pink wild roses. There is something about their delicate look that is so appealing. I tried to tie that into today’s card featuring the Wild Rose set and simple white layers with elegant lines.
I started with a white layer with the right side punched by a border punch. A piece of sticker paper was layered behind it and Ballerina Velvet Glitter was added. This was layered on the white card base.
The Wild Rose image was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink on watercolor paper and colored with Zig Watercolor Markers. The sentiment was stamped beneath the image and this was die cut with a Spellbinders’ Labels Seventeen Etched Die and layered on top of a slightly larger white die cut and added to the card front. Dots of Sunny Daze Glitter was added to the flower centers, using a glue pen.
Along with this lovely floral image, this set comes with four sentiments making it great to use for a variety of occasions.
E. Marie here with one more masculine card idea, perfect for Father’s Day. This one features the Gone Fishin digital stamp set.
I started with some lovely designer cardstock and layered this on the white card base. Strips of 1/4” and 1/8” Tear-iffic tape was added to the next layer of black cs and Autumn Spice Velvet Glitter was added.
Rectangular windows, with black frames, were die cut from another piece of the designer cs. This was popped up over the printed image and sentiment, using dimensional tape, and added to the card front.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hi! It’s Eret here. Today I want to share a simple circle step card.
I used Wild Rose stamp set #785 as a focal image. It is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with alcohol base markers. Image is cut out with Spellbinders circle die. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Mulberry Embossing Powder. I draw all around the letters with White Gel Pen to make the sentiment pop out a bit better.
Matting layer is cut out from Sticker Paper with Tonic Trellis Circles die. I also trimmed it with scissors to make it into the shape I wanted. Sticker Paper is covered with Orchid Rose Glitter.
Little butterflies are die cut with Mini Dimensional Butterflies dies by Cheery Lynn Designs. Te are cut out from Sticker Paper and covered with Daisy Glitter. To the center of butterflies I added White Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Card base and green pattern paper are die cut with Trellis Circles dies by Tonic. I smudged Versamark ink randomly over pattern paper, added Sparkle EP on top and heat embossed. After card base was scored and folded I cut the pattern paper in pieces and adhered to the base layer.

Are you like me and can never have enough flower images? Have you seen the new Nasturtium #1 and Nasturtium #2 stamp sets? They are a must have with easy to color floral images and a variety of sentiments included. Today’s card features the Nasturtium #1 digital image and stamped sentiment.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink in the center of a piece of white cardstock and heat embossed it with Sparkle Embossing Powder. Then I stamped it a second time with Versamark Ink and added Merlot Velvet Glitter. When I heat set it the 2nd time, the glitter settles into the embossing powder so it will stay in place when it cools. This way the sentiment color will match the glitter I used throughout the card. This piece of cardstock was edged with 1/4″ Double Sided “Tear-ific” Tape and layered on the white card base. Merlot Velvet Glitter was added to the exposed adhesive to create the look of another layer.
I die cut Tutti Designs’ Butterfly Oval from sticker paper. I slowly removed various sections of the top protective layer to add Merlot, Blue Jewel, Sunny Daze, and Pistachio glitters. This sparkly oval die was layered around the sentiment.
I printed out the digital version of the Nasturtium flowers twice, colored with Copic Markers, and fussy cut. To give them sparkle to go with the die cut, I covered each flower with Versamark Ink and Sparkle Embossing Powder. I used a stencil tool lightly shape the flowers and adhered them over the smaller flowers on the die cut.
