Scrapy Land Challenge #88

I used this very pretty die from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson to create my Mother's Day Easel Card.
 
 
 
To create this card I started by die cutting the background die out of white cardstock and folding to make by easel base.  The layer was then cut again out of sticker paper.  The inside layer was cut out of white cardstock.  Using distress ink and a sponge dauber color was added to the die cut. 
 
 
 The backing was removed to expose the sticky side of the sticker paper and the colored layer was placed on top of the sticker paper.  Sparkling Snow glitter was then sprinkled on top of the sticker paper and burnish well.  This really create a pretty sparkly card base.
 
 
 
Drops of Dandelion Crystal Drops were placed on the flower centers, Rhubarb Crumble Crystal Drops were added to the butterflies.  Small drop of Ebony Crystal Drops were placed on the birds eye.
 
 
 
For the inside panel the die was cut a second time and colored using the distress inks and sponge dauber.  I cut apart the die cut an only used the section with the bird and flowers along with the butterflies.  The flowers were covered with Morning Dew Crystal Drops and small drops of Rosewater Jewel Drops were placed on the panel.  Strip of 1/8" Tear-Ific Tape was placed on the card and Pinkerbell glitter was placed on the sticky side of the tape.

Eclipse Technique Cards


Good afternoon all, hope you are all having a wonderful day!!  Today I would like to share my Eclipse Technique cards with you. I have been seeing this beautiful technique and had to give it a try.  These turned so pretty I will be using this technique again.  Let me tell you how they came together.





Dies from Anna Griffin were used to create both of these cards.  The sentiments were die cut first out of white and then cut 3 more times from black cardstock.  Leaving the white die cut in place the card was stamped with the Corner Garden Stamp Set from Sparkle N Sprinkle on both corners and on top of the lettering.  The images were then colored with Tombow makers and blended with the Glitter Gloss Pen from Nuvo. 


Once the coloring was completed the die cut was removed and layered together with the black die cut.  This was then placed but onto the card base using foam dots.  The black die cuts gave the letters a pretty shadow.  The small butterflies were stamped and colored using the Tombow markers.  This stamp also comes from the Corner Garden Stamp Set.  Small drops of Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were placed in the flower centers on the Hello card and Honey Gold Glitter Drops were place in the centers on the Blessed card.  Using a small glue pen Sparkling Snow glitters was added to the images to give a pretty little sparkle. 
I love this technique and will definitely be using it again.  Hope you will try it also, you can find a tutorial HERE for more details.
Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful weekend and remember....Keep Stamping!!

My card today was made using the beautiful Holy Crosses die from Tutti Designs. 
 
 
I started my card by die cutting the crosses once with designer paper, then with gold mirror cardstock and lastly with back cardstock.  The pieces were layered together with a slight offset.  This really give the crosses a lot of dimension.  Small drops of Violet Galaxy Crystal Drops were added.

ScrapyLand Challenge #86

 
Good morning everyone it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge  The theme is always ANYTHING GOES using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  In addition, we have TWO WINNERS for each challenge.  One will be a random winner and the other is chosen by the Design Team.  Each winner will receive a generous $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.
 

Let me show you how my Easter card came together!  To start the card base I used the pretty border die from Crafter's Companion .  You can find similar border dies Here.   Using the 3d embossing folder from Crafter's Companion along with Nuvo Mousse the background layer was created.  I love using the mousse and this embossing folder!  I did place small drops of Dandelion Crystal drops on the small flowers.





My lily panel was then die cut using heavy weight cardstock using the Easter Lilies Window die.  By using the heavy cardstock the die did not cut all the way through.  By doing this I was able to color the lilies using Nuvo Glitter Markers.  The glitter markers gave the lilies a beautiful sparkle shimmer.  I then cut around the outside of the die.  A second die was cut using black cardstock.  This was placed on top of the white cardstock using spray adhesive.
 

 
The butterfly was die cut using Elizabeth Craft Design die.  I used the tutorial from Elizabeth Craft Design to create my glittery butterfly along with Sparkle N Sprinkle glitter.

Happy Birthday Stained Glass Card

 
 
Good morning all, hope you are having a great week!!  Just wanted to let you know you still have time to join us over at Scrapy Land for the Challenge #84.  Be sure to link up your project to have a chance to win!!   I would like to share a 2nd card I made with the beautiful  Sue Wilson Designs Stained Glass Collections - Sail Boat die.  I just love this die!!
 
             
To create the colorful background I used Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders, watercolor paper and water. 
 
 
These colors are so vibrant!!  Once the background was dry, adhesive was added to the entire background paper using spray adhesive.  The die cut sail boat was placed on top of the sticky background paper.  To complete the card Sparkling Snow glitter was sprinkled on top of the open areas and burnished with my finger.  This gave the finished project a pretty sparkle.
 
 
The shells were stamped using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Tropical Stamp Set.
