Kindness is Always Beautiful for Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello, everyone!! It's my turn to post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog and I have a couple of cards to share with you today featuring the newly released Bearded Iris stamp set.


SNS is starting something new this month. Instead of a traditional blog hop, the designers will begin showcasing the new stamp sets on the 5th of each month, and a winner of a $20 gift certificate to shop at SNS will be chosen at the end of each month. The winner will be chosen from comments left on both the SNS Blog and a mystery designer's blog.


For these cards, I used the new Bearded Iris 889 stamp set. Using a Tim Holtz Stamp Platform (1707E), I applied Versamark Embossing Ink Pad (VM001) to the stamp, and then heat embossed it with Black Detail (EP171) embossing powder. Next, I applied Super Adhesive Sheets (SAS02) to cardstock and cut it with the Tonic Double Detail Jewelled Crown (1143E) die. It was then covered with Crystal Ice (G1058) glitter. A Nuvo Crystal Drop SimplyWhite (651N) was added. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from DL.ART.


For the corners, I used the same technique, applying Super Adhesive Sheets (SAS02) to cardstock and cutting it with Tonic Double Detail Jewelled Crown (1143E) dies. This time, I heat embossed them with Super Thick White (EP355) embossing powder. I love the texture!!


I colored the Bearded Iris 889 with watercolor paints and then I went over it with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen (888N) for sparkle. Using Tonic Spring-Cut Fine Tip Detail Scissors 6.5” (404), I cut around the bloom and popped it up for dimension.


I absolutely love the Glitter Stencil Background Technique Demo Donna showcased in the video HERE and had to try it. First, I applied Sticker Paper (99558) to cardstock and cut it with Tonic Mixed Edge Oval (1456E) die. Then I ran a bar of Hawaiian Coconut Oil Soap (SOAP) over the back of a Stampendous Moroccan Mesh Metal Stencil (FMS4086) so it wouldn't stick to the sticker paper. Then I placed it on the sticky paper and applied Sugar Plum (G1096), Lacy Lilac (G1033), and  Purple Fig (GM2047) glitters. The next step is to peel off the stencil, which comes off easily since the Hawaiian soap was applied, and then cover the remaining sticky paper with Crystal Ice (G1058). I encourage you to try this technique...it's addicting!!


A Taylored Expressions Banner Die was cut with vellum, and the using Versamark Embossing Ink Pad (VM001), the sentiment was stamped and embossed with Gold Detail (EP168) embossing powder.


Be sure to leave a comment both here and then head on over to the SNS Blog and leave a comment there as well for your chance to win a $20 gift card to SNS!! One lucky winner will be chosen from one of the Designers' posts on the last day of each month!! There will be new projects on the SNS Blog every day to increase your chances of winning!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

  28. Lisa, thanks for letting me know the pkg arrived safely, and I'm so happy if you can use the items! I didn't have your email address either to alert you that I'd gotten it mailed. This is one beautiful card. Love that rich deep purple, and my goodness, you certainly did get so much texture on the 'corner crown'. At first I thought it was a 3D embellie as I've seen you use in the past. The layers are lush, with lots of eye candy - one keeps looking back to see what else you've tucked on. Your flowers always look so lovely & arranged. TFS & hope your snow has gone. Hugs

  29. Lisa, these are just stunning! The fun embossing and amazing colors of glitter are just awesome! The texture and sparkle are spectacular! The colors are so vibrant! I LOVE the beautiful design...so fabulous Lisa! I have been staring at it for 10 min looking at all the sparkle and of course all the product you used. Like I said before, you are such an enabler..I want it all!! Haha, I would if I knew I would be in my craft room a bit more. I have so much I haven't had a chance to use yet because I haven't had the time..boo! I hope to get back to it on a more regular basis soon. I sure am missing it :(
    Hope you have a great day!
    Hugs,
