Happy Fourth 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 patriotic cards to share with you today featuring the new Baxter Pup 901 stamp set.


Isn't he adorable??!! I am so super-excited that Demo Donna used my card to create the June Video Kit available HERE from Sparkle N Sprinkle!!



To create the flag background, I used Super-Adhesive Sheets on cardstock and then covered one sheet with Gypsy Red glitter and another with Diamond Dust glitter. After brushing cardstock with a Anti Static Bag, I used Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the Sentiment with Versamark Embossing Ink Pad and then heat embossed it with Red Apple embossing powder.


I then cut the the papers into strips, attached Tear-ific Tape ½” to the back and layered them together.


Next, I covered a sheet of cardstock with Super-Adhesive Sheets and sprinkled on Blue Lightning glitter. The stars are an old punch and I used Tear-ific Tape 2” over cardstock and then covered them with Diamond Dust glitter.


After brushing cardstock with a Anti Static Bag, I used Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp Baxter Pup with Versamark Embossing Ink Pad and then heat embossed it with Black Detail. Baxter was then watercolored and cut out with a Tonic Mixed Edge Oval. Below, another Tonic Mixed Edge Oval was cut from cardstock covered with Super-Adhesive Sheets and then sprinkled with Liberty glitter. I then adhered Nuvo Golden Years Confetti stars.

For this card, I placed Super-Adhesive Sheets over two Tonic Mixed Edge Oval dies. On the bottom one, I sprinkled Frosted Juniper embossing powder and on the top I used Cotton Candy embossing powder and heat embossed them. I printed out the pre-colored digi from the Colorful Cosmos Blooms stamp set and die cut it with a Tonic Mixed Edge Oval. The edges of the oval were inked with Pink Sherbet from Nuvo Diamond Hybrid Ink Pad Rose Garden. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops Party Pink.


I printed out a slightly larger version of the flower, fussy cut it and popped it up for dimension. I used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Midas Touch Glitter Gloss Pen for shimmer and shine.


I used a Karen Burniston Twisted Pop-Up die for the inside.


On the pop-up panels, I used Tear-ific Tape 2” and then covered them with Forest Green embossing powder. The next layer was covered with Luau Green glitter. The flower panels were adhered with Tear-ific Tape ½” and the edges were inked with Dried Oregano from Nuvo Diamond Hybrid Ink Pad Rose Garden.


On the banner, I used Tangerine and Sugar Plum gliter and Golden Sparkle and Cotton Candy embossing powder.
