Merry and Bright 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 featuring the New Christmas Baubles stamp set.


On the base of the card, I applied Tear-ific Tape ½” to the edges and then heat embossed it with Gold Detail embossing powder. For the next layer, I again covered it with Tear-ific Tape ½” and then covered it with Gypsy Red glitter.


For the next layer, after using a Anti Static Bag over the surface of the cardstock, I used a Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the holly image from the Christmas Baubles set several times with Versamark Embossing Ink Pad and then heat embossed it with Gold Detail embossing powder. I also embossed the sentiment with Gold Detail embossing powder. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to highlight the embossing.


The berries are Nuvo Crystal Drops Red Berry.


For the poinsettia, I covered a Wild Orchid Crafts poinsettia with Brushable Glue and then covered it with Starfire glitter. Isn't the sparkle amazing??!!


The ornament was stamped with a Tim Holtz Stamp Platform with a Versamark Embossing Ink Pad and then heat embossed it with Gold Detail. It was then colored with watercolors and once dry, I used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen to give it shimmer. I then used Nuvo Crystal Drops SimplyWhite for dimension, and while it was wet, I sprinkled it with Cloud Nine glitter for some added sparkle. Using Tonic Spring-Cut Fine Tip Detail Scissors 6.5”, I cut the ornament out and popped it up with foam tape for dimension.
