Blessed


Good morning all, today I am going to share the layout that I promised yesterday!!  I will be using the same Corner Garden stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The images were all enlarged to fix the layout.  It is so much fun using the digi stamps as they can be made as large or small as needed.  Lets' get started on all the details!



First the images were sized and printed out using the color set.  They were cut out using the Silhouette.  Using Anna Griffin's new  Border Dies to cut all the die cuts out.


The frame die is also from Anna Griffin.  Once the die was cut out I placed Pink Opal Glimmer Paste on top.  This really gave a pretty sparkle!


Here you can see how pretty the digi stamps are, they were enlarged quite a bit to fit the layout.  The larger flower was cut twice to add dimension. Sparkle was added to all of the flowers using the Small Nuvo Glue PenSpirited GreenWaterfall, Bubblegum and Sunny Daze glitter.   The butterfly was stamped using the rubber stamp set and the color on glitter technique. The strips of white cardstock were embossed using a Anna Griffin embossing folder and shimmer was added using Peony Pink, Aquamarine, Spring Green and Lemon Sorbet Mousse.  



The digi butterfly was also enlarged using the color stamp.  Sparkle was added using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen, Bubblegum, Orchid, Lavender Iris and Sparkling Snow glitter.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the body of the butterfly.


This die cut is so beautiful, the backing was die cut twice once from sticker paper and once from a dark purple cardstock.  The scalloped piece was placed on top of the sticker paper and the sticky areas were covered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  They were layered together and placed behind the photo.


The bow and sentiment was also cut using Anna Griffin dies.  For the bow I covered a piece of pink cardstock with the Pink Opal Glimmer Paste for a pretty soft sparkle.  

I hope you have enjoyed this layout!!!  Using the digi stamps on your layout is so much fun they can be sized to fit any space on your layouts or cards.  Please stop by the Sparkle N Sprinkle store to see all of the amazing products!!

Have a wonderful day and remember......Keep Stamping!!

Corner Garden

Good morning all and happy Wednesday!  I would like to share a card that was made using only the digi stamp set from the Corner Garden.  What a beautiful set, it is so pretty and can be used so many ways.  I have also created a layout using this set that I will share with you tomorrow.   Let's get started on this project.
 
 

First all of the images were sized and cut out using my Silhouette with the color digi stamps.  The larger flower was cut a second time and layered on top of the corner image.  Sparkle was added to all of the flowers using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen, Spirited Green, Waterfall, Bubblegum and Sunny Daze glitter.  The background paper was printed using the digi papers also included in this set. The paper was lightly misted using Tattered Angels Pearl Mist to give a soft shimmer.  Next the lattice frame was die cut using a Anna Griffin die.  The corner unit was placed on top of the frame and the frame was adhered to the background paper using foam dots.  Small drops of Dazzling Blue Glitter Drops were placed in the corners.
 
The butterfly was printed out twice and layered together using foam tape.  For the sparkle the Small Nuvo Glue Pen was used along with Bubblegum, Lavender Iris, Orchid and Sparkle Snow glitters.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the middle of the body.




The digital papers in the set are just gorgeous!!! 

Here is a quick peek at my layout using the same stamps, be sure to stop back by on Thursday to see all the details!

Every Flower



Good morning all hope you are having a wonderful day.  Today I will share with you a card using the new Corner Garden rubber and digi stamp set.  Come along as I show you how this all came together!



For the layers of my card I used 3 different colors of cardstock , on the white layer strips of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape was used on the edges and Waterfall glitter.  This really gave my card base a pretty sparkle.



To start my card I printed the flower set using the color version.  It was then cut out using the Silhouette.  I did print and cut it a second time to layer on top of some of the flowers using foam dots.  Glitter was added using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Waterfall, BubblegumDaisy, Orchid, and Margarita.  Small Drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the swirls.




Next the sentiment was stamped using the rubber stamp set.  Waterfall glitter was added to the letters using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen.


The butterflies were stamped with StazOn ink onto a piece of cardstock that was covered with a strip of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape backing removed and glittered using Cloud Nine glitter.  The butterflies were then colored using the Tombow markers.  They were fussy cut out and placed on the card using foam dots.


Digi stamps are so much fun to play around with and can be used along with the rubber stamps on your project!!!  

Be sure to hop over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle store to see all the new products!!

Proudly May She Wave


Good morning everyone hope you are having a blessed week!!  This morning I would like to share with you a card using both rubber and digi stamp set Proudly Patriotic from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  To create the base for my card I layered blue and white cardstock.  On the card base layer 1/2" Tear-ific Tape was placed along the edges and glittered using Fire Engine Red glitter.  Next the image was printed using the color version of the stamp set and printed a 2nd time to be fussy cut out.


Sparkle was added to my image using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Fire Engine Red, Sparkling Snow, Sassy Silver and Golden Silver glitter. Ruby Slipper, Dazzling Blue, and Silver Moondust Glitter Drops were placed on the fireworks.  A drop of Honey Gold Crystal Drops was placed at the top of the flag pole.  The fussy cut flag was placed on top of the main image using foam dots.



Next the sentiment was stamped on the card using the rubber stamp.


Drops of Dazzling Blue Glitter Drops were placed under the sentiment.

4th of July

Good morning all, hope your day is off to a great start!!!  Today I am sharing a layout with you using the new digi Proudly Patriotic stamp set, along with some pretty heat embossed stars.  Come along as I show you have this came together.  




To get started on my stars for this layout I cut different size stars using my Silhouette.  Next I used this tutorial to create the embossed enamel look.  The stars were inked using versamark , Silver Bells, Holiday Blue, Sapphire,  and Red Apple embossing powders were sprinkled on top of the stars.  After they were heated using the parchment paper, I was not quite happy with the results, so I inked again with versamark, covered with Clear embossing powder and heat set again.  Once this was dry the stars had a pretty shine to them from the Clear powder.  I loved the look!!  I hope you will give this a try it is really a pretty look for your cards or layouts.



Next I used the Large Nuvo Glue Pen around the edges and glittered using Sassy Silver glitter.  


Strips of 3/4" Tear-ific Tape was placed on top of a strip of cardstock, the protective backing was removed  and a 1/4" strip of Tear-ifc Tape was placed in the middle.  The strip was then covered with Princess Anna Royal.  The protective backing was removed from the smaller strip of tape and covered with Sassy Silver glitter.  For the second strip the step were repeated using Fire Engine Red, and Sassy Silver glitter.



Next the flag image was enlarged and printed using the color set.  I then fussy cut the flag out and inked using versamark.  The flag was covered with Velvet Sparkle embossing powder and heat set.  The flag was placed on the layout using foam tape.





Sassy Silver glitter and the Large Nuvo Glue Pen were used on the smaller stars.   For the medium stars they were cut from sticker paper and glittered using Princess Anna Royal, Fire Engine Red and Sassy Silver glitter.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were placed in the centers.   Small strips of washi tape was placed on the top right corner.


Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have enjoyed my layout.  Be sure to hop over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle store to see all of the new stamp sets including digi sets!!  

Have a great rest of the week and remember......Keep Stamping!!

Are you having fun yet??  There are so many beautiful stamps this month that it was hard to pick one favorite, but I decided on the Proudly Patriotic set for some 4th of July fun.  Come along and let me show you have it was created!!  First I needed to create my background and choose to dry and heat emboss my background paper.  Using a Cuttlebug embossing folder the white cardstock was embossed, while the cardstock was still on the embossing folder I inked the raised areas using a brayer and versamark ink.  The fireworks were then covered using Golden Sparkle, Firecracker Red, Silver Lightening and Cerulean Star embossing powders.  The powders were then heat set.  Wow I really loved how pretty this turned out.  You can find a tutorial Here on how to create this look!




Here is a closer look at the pretty background.  Around the outer layer sparkle was added using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and Sassy Silver glitter.  The step was repeated using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape  for the inner layer with the Princess Anna Royal used for the sparkle.  



The image was stamped and colored using copic markers.  Fussy cut out and glittered using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Sparkling Snow and Sassy Silver glitter. The flag was placed on the background paper using foam tape. The sentiment was stamped with red ink and glitterd by tracing over the letter with the small glue pen, glittering with Fire Engine Red and Princess Anna Royal glitter.  It was then fussy cut around placed on top of the flag with foam dots.  a small red pull ribbon was placed behind the sentiment.


The stars were all die cut using a Sizzix's die glittered using Fire Engine Red, Princess Anna Royal, and Sparkling Snow glitter.  They were placed on the card using foam dots.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the centers.  

I really loved how this turned out can't wait to make this for my 4th of July cards this year!!  I have also created a scrapbook layout using this digi set and I will leave you with a sneak peek of it.  Be sure to stop back by to see the finished layout.


Have fun on the hop your next stop is the Corner Garden surprise !!

Each Day Always Holds Beautiful Moments

 Happy Monday all, hope you had a great weekend!!!  This morning I would like to share my last card using the new stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle's March Reveal, it is using the Bonnet Bouquet stamp set.  I did use both the rubber and digi stamps on this card.



 To start my easel card I used Spellbinder's Fancy Circle dies to cut the card base.  To create the pretty shimmer background paper I covered a piece of heavy cardstock with Nuvo Aquamarine Mousse,  Nuvo Lemon Sorbet Mousse and Nuvo Spring Green Mousse.  Once it was dry It was die cut with Spellbinder's Circle dies.  This really created a beautiful shimmery background for my card.  These mousses are so beautiful be sure to look them up in the SNS store!



Next the image was stamped on top of cardstock that had been prepped with clear gesso for water coloring.  The image was colored using Tombow markers and a aqua brush.  Once dry sparkle was added using Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Waterfall and Sunny Daze glitter. Drops of Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops were placed in the center of the flowers.  The image was fussy cut out and placed on top of the card front.  Small drops of Dandelion Crystal Drops were added around the fancy circle.


For the inside of the card I printed the flower and sentiment from the color digi set which I did enlarge.  The flower was cut using my Silhouette and the sentiment was fussy cut.  Glitter was added to the flower using the small glue pen, Spirited Green and Sunny Daze glitter.  Small drops of Ebony Black Crystal Drops were added to the flower.  


A look at the card closed!
