Sending Smiles 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 colorful cards to share with you today featuring the Feathered Friends stamp set, and the Botanical Orchid Flowers stamp set for the sentiment.


I started off by adhering Tear-ific Tape ½” to the edges of cardstock and then heat embossed it with Amethyst embossing powder.


The background was created with Nuvo Shimmer Powders in Solar Flare Atlantis Burst, Violet Brocade and Cherry Bomb. I added a spritz or two of Nuvo Mica Mist Nebula Blue as well.


I had a happy accident when I went to spritz it with Nuvo Mica Mist Fresh Pear. The nozzle was clogged and it dripped out instead of squirting, but I love the look the drops added.


Using a Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and Versamark Embossing Ink Pad, I heat embossed the birds with Black Detail before coloring them with markers. I used Nuvo Hybrid Ink Pad Sea Siren Polar Ice to add color around the birds. They were framed with Memory Box Circles covered in Impulsive Purple glitter.


The sentiment is from the Botanical Orchid Flowers stamp set, and it was heat embossed with Black Detail embossing powder. The layers were adhered together with Tear-ific Tape 2”.


As a finishing touch, I added Nuvo Golden Years Confetti Ice White Circles.
