Pool Friends Shaker Card

Hello friends!
IMG_0303
Hi there!  It’s Designer Jess back today with a new card.
 This time, I used the new release stamp set called “Pool Friends” to create a fun shaker card!  Let’s go!
 
SparkleNSprinkle Supply List:
 
Step 1:
Stamp image onto white cardstock using Memento Ink and color. I used our Pearlescent Watercolors and an aquabrush to paint mine.
IMG_0187
 
Step 2:
Create your “window”.  To start, I took a 4×5.25 piece of blue cardstock and used an embossing folder to add some dimension.  I took a second piece of the same sized blue cardstock and cut out the window using an oval die & my Big Shot machine.  I cut a piece of Embossable Acetate to 4X5.25.  The colored image was centered where I wanted it to show through and adhered using 1/4″ Tearific Tape to the background piece.  Next, I attached my Embossable Acetate to the underside of the “window” piece using 1/4″ Tearific tape.  
 
I added the Foam roll all around the very outside edge of the base (I cut the roll in half to make it skinnier so it wouldn’t “peek” into my window.  I added my sequins and then attached the top panel carefully so the Foam Roll wouldn’t show through. So far, so good!
IMG_0301 
Step 3: Embellish!
I stamped out 5 beach balls using Memento Ink, watercolored and fussy cut them out.  To add more sparkle,  I took my Quicky Glue Pen and added some Margarita Glitter to some of the beach balls.  I stamped out the drinks & sentiment and followed the same procedure (watercolor, Margarita Glitter and trim). I adhered the sentiment and some of the beachballs using Foam Squares (adds dimension!) and the rest was adhered using Tear-ific Tape. I also added a piece of pull ribbon to the sentiment using a mini stapler. I didn’t pull it, just cut a small piece and formed a small loop.
 
Finally, I doodled around the outside edge using my Quicky Glue Pen and sprinkled on Margarita Glitter.  The entire “shaker” was then adhered to a piece of 4.25X5.5 Zeus Gold Cardstock using 1/2″ Tearific Tape.

See how simple a shaker card can be?  
 
I hope you enjoy this card and pick up some of the supplies I used to create it from the shop.
 
Until next time,

Embossed Wetlands

Hello again!

IMG_0015

Designer Jess here with another quick Wetlands 1 Card to share with you!  I just love this set – can’t you tell? 🙂

Supply List:

(you can click on each product to find it in the shop!)

Wetlands 1 Stamp Set #790

Versamark Ink {VM-001}

Moss Star Embossing Powder {EP430}

Black Detail Embossing Powder {EP171}

Clear Detail Embossing Powder {EP280}

Nuance Turquoise Watercolor Powder {MNU-001}

1/4″ Tear-ific Tape {SAT-01}

Onto the card!  This was a quick, easy but gorgeous design! First I started by stamping the background image (water and trees) using a BLUE Craft Ink.  I quickly sprinkled on the Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set, creating the gorgeous blue background.  This is a super easy technique and a great way to have limitless colors of embossing options – simply by using the inks you have on hand!  I love Clear Detail Embossing Powder.  It is a MUST HAVE in your collection.

I stamped the Crane using Versamark and used Black Detail Embossing Powder to make him stand out against the water.  I grabbed my Nuance Turquoise Watercolor Powder and a water color brush to create some water.  I did use my Heat Tool to dry the paper quickly, but you could easily set it aside to dry for a bit.

IMG_9823

To make the “frame”, I took the leaf stamps and randomly stamped them around the background using Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled on Moss Star Embossing Powder and heat set, creating the beautiful frame of leaves.  Finally, to finish off, I stamped (with Versamark Ink) a few of the ducks flying overhead and used Black Detail Embossing Powder. I used the same technique to add the sentiment. All of my card layers were adhered using 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape and VOILA! 🙂

As you can see, this set is SUPER versatile and I just love how quickly a card can come together.  I hope you enjoy it too!

I used both the leaf stamps along with some craft ink in a light green, then sprinkled on Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set!  I added a second layer of leaves using a darker green craft ink and repeated the same process of adding Clear Detail Embossing Powder & heat setting!  I love that you can use any color craft ink and Clear Detail Embossing Powder!!!  Such a great trick.  I also stamped on the crane with Versamark and used Pebbled Copper Embossing Powder.

IMG_9819

Next, I grabbed my Nuance Turquoise Watercolor Powder and my aqua painter to add some pretty blue water to the lake.  I also stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and heat set using Pebbled Copper Embossing Powder.

The Simple Wild Rose

WildRoses2

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.

 

WildRoses-Border

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.

 

WildRoses-CU

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.

Watercolored Wild Roses

Hello friends!

IMG_9521

It’s Designer Jess back with another GORGEOUS card for the June Release!  This time, I did a lot of fussy cutting and I think it sure added a ton of WOW factor to the card!

Supply List:

– Crimson

– Violet

To begin my card, I started by watercoloring a piece of Watercolor Paper using the Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders.  I simply sprinkled some of the powder on and created a sort of ombre effect using my aquapainter. I dried the paper using my heat tool (although you could just simply set it aside to dry – I was impatient! hehe).  Then, I used my Wild Rose Stamp and Memento Black Ink to stamp flowers all over my watercolor background. Then I grabbed my paper snips and started cutting out all those gorgeous flowers!  

IMG_9314 IMG_9315 IMG_9316 IMG_9317

Once all my flowers were cut out, I started to create the card itself.  I used a square piece of Watercolor Paper and stamped a full set of flowers in the corner using Memento Black Ink.  I took my Jade Nuance Watercolor powder and painted in my leaves.  Now is where the fun comes in!  I started piecing back together my flowers using my fussy cut pieces!  I popped some up on Foam Squares for added dimension and texture to the card.  I also used my Quicky Glue Pen (a MUST HAVE in your craft stash!) and added some Hyacinth Glitter to the center of some of the flowers.  I stamped the “Happy Birthday” Sentiment using Versamark Ink and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. Simple and elegant I think!

 IMG_9319

IMG_9322

To finish my card, I added some green and purple cardstock layers.  I used Embossing Folders (Diamond Pattern and Brick Pattern) to emboss both my background and my cardbase itself. I also added a natural fiber ribbon from my stash. All layers were attached with 1/8″ Tear-ific Tape.  This stuff holds EVERYTHING together perfectly well. Such a versatile and amazing adhesive product.  I added some layers on the inside as well as another sentiment stamped with Versamark and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder.  I also added an extra color brush stroke with my Aquapainter and Watercolor Powder.  Just a little finishing touch.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.  I sure had fun making it. 

Until next time,

Jess

Feeling “Royal” – Blue and Gold

Hello friends!

IMG_9523

It’s Designer Jess here for SparkleNSprinkle showcasing some new products in the shop! This card had me feeling “Royal” – gold and blue!  I played with the new Nuvo Embellishment Mousse as well as the new release June Stamp Set Wild Rose (#785).

Here is my supply list:

To make this card, I started by taking a piece of blue cardstock and placing my Want2Scrap Fleur de Lis stencil overtop. I like to secure my stencils with some washi tape to make sure they don’t move around. I used a sponge and added my Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse. I like this product so much! It’s easy and fun to work with and leave a variety of textures. It dries fairly quickly too.

To make the background, I cut my piece of Metallic Gold Cardstock to size (4×5.25) and used an embossing folder to add some treadmark texture. I adhered my blue panel using Tear-ific Tape.  

 IMG_9326

Next, I worked on my image. I stamped the beautiful flower stamp from Wild Rose onto a piece of Watercolor Paper using Memento Ink and watercolored it using Nuance Watercolors in Jade & Cerulean Blue.  Then, I cut the image using a circle die.

To finish off the image, I added some Crystal Drops in Bright Gold.  I think they add so much texture and added interest, don’t you?  I stamped my sentiment from Wild Rose using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed using Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a label die and then I added a few more Bright Gold Crystal Drops and let dry. Now came the FUN!  I used my finger tool and added more Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse to the edges of my images.  I just love how the gold mousse adds interest and flair!

 

To finish the card, I tied a piece of Tan 1/8″ Pull Ribbon and then popped up the image using Foam Squares. I adhered the sentiment using Tear-ific Tape for perfect hold and then added the entire panel to the cardbase (also using Tear-ific Tape!). 

 IMG_9338

I love how this card turned out and I hope you do too!

Now, head on over to the shop and pick up some of these super fun products!

Until next time,

Have Faith

Hi! It’s Eret here. Then I saw Sparkle N Sprinkle Nasturtium #1 stamp set #782, I knew I want to watercolor in. I used Digi version (DIGI782). Thanks to that I was able to make the image as large as I needed.

Have Faith

Flowers and sentiment was printed to the Watercolor cardstock. All the coloring was done with Distress Inks. I smudged the inks to an acrylic block and used it as a paint palette. Background is colored with Evergreen Bough, Cracked Pistachio and Spun Sugar. Flowers with Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber, and stem with Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. Stamens are covered with Sakura Glue Pen and  Aqua Marine Glitter.
Little dots of Dimensional Glue was added around the image. This glue dries clear and holds the shape.

Have Faith

To decorate my cards I made a glittered ribbon from 1/4″ and 1/2″ Double Sided “Tear-ific” Tape. Tapes was covered with Bubble Gum Glitter.  wider tape was placed around the watercolored panel. I also made a fake bow from that. Bow tales was made from thinner tape. Center embellishment is from Mon Ami Gabby. It is a big mesh with silver flowers. I colored pars of it with Orange alcohol base marker and added Dimensional Glue on top.

Have Faith

To add some more sparkle to my card I made a striped glitter strip to the edge of the card. I adhered 1/4″ Double Sided “Tear-ific” Tape to a cardstock and cut the protective sheet with x-acto knife. Then I peeled every other strip of protective layer and covered the tape with Aqua Marine Glitter. After the glitter was rubbed in good, I removed rest of the protective layer and covered tape with Bubble Gum Glitter.

Have Faith

Watercolored layer was popped up from the card base with foam tape. But before I did that I adhered a die cut strip, which was made with Die-Versions Loopy Lace die and colored with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, under the left edge of the panel.
My watercolor panel was the same size as a card base. To make room for the glittered edge I had to cut one side off from the watercolored panel. This leftover piece was adhered to the card base. Can’t let anything go waste. Then I draw a line to the both side of this strip with Sakura Glue Pen and added Bubble Gum Glitter on top.

Have Faith

Creating the background

gelatos

Using Metallic Mint, Metallic Blueberry and Yellow gelatos, I smeared them onto my craft and lightly misted with water.

paper

Watercolor paper was then placed on top of the colors.  The paper was removed and dried using my heat tool.

 Once the paper was dry I placed the paper back on top of the remaining color and repeated the drying steps.

The colors and shimmer of the metallic gelatos are so pretty!

Next step was to create the pretty butterfly using the products from the above picture.

The butterfly was die cut using white cardstock and and super adhesive paper.  Then it was time for the fun of  adding the glitter.

I removed the outline of the butterfly and glittered using the new Chameleon glitter.

Next I removed the areas that I wanted to be glittered with new Enlightened glitter.  This is a beautiful blue color!!

butterfly2

I removed all the remaining area, except the circles and ovals.  These were glittered with Hyacinth glitter.  This is a new glitter also and it is just gorgeous!  The remaining pieces were removed and glittered using Cloud Nine glitter.

Using the Stampendous Embossing Ink I covered the Want2 Scrap chipboard.

 Covering only parts of the chipboard with the Pineapple EP, I heat set.

 Allowing the chipboard to cool I then ink the remaining areas and applied Cotton Candy and Skylight EP.  I

hope you can see how pretty these embossing powders are.

The lattice was die cut using Spellbinders Grateful Lattice and placed on top of the background paper.  The chipboard was placed on top of the lattice and the butterfly was adhered to the chipboard using a foam dots.

Thank You

Want2Scrap pearls were added to the center of the butterfly.

Thank You

Using a piece of leftover background paper the sentiment was stamped using the Thinking of You stamp set, and fussy cut out.

Thanks so much for stopping,  have a wonderful day!

Anne here with today’s post and I have a mixed media card for you. I used Want 2 Scrap chipboard and the newly released Donna’s Stylin’ Sayings stamp set.

To start off, I cut a piece of watercolor paper to the size I wanted and began playing with my Nuance pigment powders (Hot Pink, Red, Bright Yellow). Once I was happy with that and it was dry, I added some Dreamweaver‘s white embossing paste that I had tinted pink using a bit more of the Red Nuance powder. While the embossing paste was still wet, I sprinkled a little Lavender Iris glitter here and there.

 

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Embossable Clear Acetate and heat embossed using Buttercup Petal for the brush stroke and Outer Space for the word. After adhering, I began to sprinkle on some of the chunky embossing powders (Super Thick Silver, Super Thick White, and Super Thick Gold) in various areas.

 

Next I added a piece of chipboard from Want 2 Scrap (dress form from the Printers Trey Embellishment set). I used Super Thick Silver embossing powder to color the dress form base and Bronze Rose embossing powder for dress form.

 

I pulled out my Mon Ami Gabby pull ribbon thinking I would add a flower bow to the piece, but then I started playing around with it and thought it would make a cute skirt for the dress form. Instead of pulling the ribbon string completely, I let it gather a little to create the look of a skirt and then I tied it around the waist. To finish off the card, I distressed the edges with the edge of some scissors.

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.
