Celebrate the Season for Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello, everyone and happy Tuesday!! It's my turn to post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog and I have a card to share with you featuring the new Cardinal and Holly stamp set.

To start off, I applied Tear-ific Tape ½” to the edges of cardstock and then covered it with Cloud Nine glitter. The next layer was covered with Luau Green glitter.

Tonic Jasmine Sunset Layering Dies were used for the next layers. The bottom layer was brushed with Brushable Glue and then covered  Gypsy Red glitter.

The beautiful cardinal from the Cardinal and Holly stamp set was stamped with the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform using Versamark Embossing Ink Pad and then heat embossed with Black Detail embossing powder. It was then watercolored and once dry, brushed with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen for shimmer. I then cut it out and popped it up for dimension.

For the leaves, after they were watercolored, I used a Nuvo Glue Pen Smooth Precision and then added Luau Green glitter. The berries are Nuvo Crystal Drops Red Berry.

Using Tear-ific Tape 2” over cardstock, I cut out a Tonic Mixed Edge Oval and then covered it with Red Apple and heat embossed it for a cracked look. The sentiment is from the Christmas Baubles stamp set, also embossed with Red Apple.
