Faith Believes What It Does Not See for Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello, everyone and happy Saturday!! 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 new Aster Garden Digital Stamp set.


For these cards, I used the pre-colored version of the Aster stamp. To frame it, I used a Tonic Mixed Edge Oval die and covered it with Golden Sparkle embossing powder.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from DL.ART.


I used Tear-ific Tape ½” to attach the lace to the top and bottom of the card.


I used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen on the image for gorgeous sparkle. I love these pens!!


The sentiment is from the Aster Garden Digital set, cut out with a Sue Wilson Pierced Banner die. The edges were tapped with Versamark and then embossed with Gold Detail embossing powder.


Using Tear-ific Tape 2” over cardstock, I cut the butterflies out with Fiskars punches. The top butterfly was embossed with Gold Detail embossing powder, and the bottom one was covered with Luau Green glitter.

MY PRIZE!!


I am giving away a Lemoncraft Yesterday 6x6 Paper Stack...the latest release from Lemoncraft, and the papers I've used on my project today!! I will ship anywhere :)

MY PROJECT!!


Since we are celebrating Janis' blog birthday, I created two celebrate shaker cards. I've used Lemoncraft's Yesterday papers, which you can find in my Etsy Store HERE. To cut the frame for the shaker, I used a Frantic Stamper Art Deco Frame. Celebrate is a Penny Black Doodles die.

Tucked under the flowers and cut with Lemoncraft Leaves paper (in my ETSY store HERE) are Memory Box Chloe Stems, Sue Wilson Orange Blossom Leaves, and Concord & 9th Layering Leaves. I added prills for texture, too. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the butterflies have been brushed with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen for sparkle.


I filled this shaker with Tonic Studios Nuvo Pure Sheen Cross My Heart Glitter.


This one was filled with Tonic Studios Nuvo Pure Sheen Peacock Feathers.

A Season of Cheer for Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello, everyone and happy Saturday!! It's my turn to post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog and I have a couple of Christmas cards to share with you today featuring the new Happy Holidays stamp set.


For these cards, I started by adhering Tear-ific Tape ½” to heavyweight cardstock and then heat embossing it with Japanese Lacquer embossing powder.


For my winter-themed card, I used Elizabeth Craft Skis die for the mountains. I applied Super-Adhesive Sheets to cardstock and cut the mountains, and then covered them with Diamond Dust glitter for amazing sparkle.


Here's a close-up of the gorgeous Diamond Dust. The trees are a Tim Holtz Tree Line die, also covered with Super-Adhesive Sheets and then covered with Victorian Christmas glitter. The snowflakes are Impression Obsession dies, and they were brushed with Brushable Glue and then covered with Sparkly Snow glitter. A drop of Nuvo Crystal Drops Red Berry was used in the center of the snowflake.


The gorgeous sentiment was stamped with a Tim Holtz Stamp Platform with Versamark Embossing Ink Pad and then embossed with Winter Berry embossing powder. It was then cut out with a Tonic Mixed Edge Oval die.


The flowers were made with foamiran from Wild Orchid Crafts and shaped with Tonic Floral Crafters Tool. The ribbon is from DL.ART.


To create the red berries, I used beads and hot-glued them to the posts. Once they dried, I snipped off the tops and then dipped them into Brushable Glue.


I then covered them with Gypsy Red glitter and popped them into Styrofoam to dry.

1) Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
