SparkleNSprinkle - Easter Chicky #1

Hello Friends!
I'm here today for SparkleNSprinkle with fun card featuring the January Reveal Stamp Set called Easter Chicky!
Supply List:
Easter Chicky #820 Stamp Set
Beach Cruiser Embossing Powder - EP224
Nuvo Large Glue Pen - 204N
Hyacinth Glitter - G2028
Green Iris Glitter - G1068
Daisy Microfine Glitter - GM2019
Mesmerized Marbled Embossing Powder - EP175
Magic Speckle Embossing Powder - EP175
Versamark Ink - VM-001
1/4" Tear-ific Tape - SAT01
Foam Squares - 01613
This was a fun project for me to create!

This is how I made it:
I took a chipboard frame and covered the entire frame with the Nuvo Large Glue Pen.  After the glue set (a few minutes and it becomes tacky!), I sprinkled on Beach Cruiser Embossing Powder, then heat set.  I repeated the process a second time to ensure full coverage. Beach Cruiser is probably one of my MOST FAVORITE embossing powders from SparkleNSprinkle!

I set to work with my blue cardstock.  I used a corner scallop punch to add a decorative touch to the corners and then  I covered the entire outside edges of the cardstock piece with Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled on the Magic Speckle Embossing Powder and heat set.  Don't you just ADORE the pearlized sheen the Magic Speckle gives?  You can layer it on your other embossing powders too!  I just used it by itself on the cardstock and LOVE the results!


I took a piece of Sticker Paper, removed the protective backing and adhered my chipboard piece to it.  Grabbing my Daisy Microfine glitter, I sprinkled it all over the the chipboard and exposed sticker paper adhesive to add some extra sparkle!  Using my finger tool, I burnished the glitter onto the sticker paper. 

I stamped the flowers and Chicky Images onto white cardstock and colored them all with Prismacolor Pencils, then fussy cut them out. I added a bit of sparkle using the Small Nuvo Glue Pen to adhered Hyacinth Glitter to the flowers and Green Iris Glitter to the egg. The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock with Versamark Ink and embossed with Mesmerized Marbled Embossing Powder. I fussy cut it out, dipped the edges into Versamark and added more of the Mesmerized Embossing Powder to add a framed look.

 To assemble, I used 1/4" Tear-ific Tape to adhere all the layers and Foam Squares to pop up the sentiment and single flower.

Finally, I added a bit of accent to the interior of the card using the single Flower Stamp, Versamark and the Mesmerized Embossing Powder.

 I hope you enjoy this card!  I love the final result - and I LOVE making some spring things while it's -45C in the prairies!!  Brrrr!

Until next time,

SparkleNSprinkle - Cattelya Friendship #1

Hello friends!

I have a gorgeous new card to share with you from SparkleNSprinkle!

Supply List

Nuance Red – MNU015
Nuance Jade – MNU004
Tonic Studios - Moroccan Mosaic Screen Die - 1049e
Sticker Paper - 99558

How I made this card:

I stamped the image onto watercolor paper using Versamark Ink and sprinkled on Black Detail Embossing Powder, heat setting.  I grabbed my Nuance Watercolor Powders in Jade and Red to paint the image. I set it aside to dry and worked on my background.

I ran a piece of brown cardstock through my Big Shot, using a brick patterned embossing folder. Using my finger tool, I applied the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Indian Gold to the paper, giving it a gorgeous sheen!

Pretty, isn't it?

Next, I created the edging part of the background. I cut out out a piece of Sticker Paper using the Moroccan Mosaic Die from Tonic Studios. I adhered it to a piece of green cardstock and then used my finger tool to add some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Spring Green.

I cut out a piece of light green cardstock using a Big Shot die (I also cut out my dried, watercolored image using a smaller version of the die) and added some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Indian gold using a brush.

All the layers were adhered using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape!  Finally, I used the Honey Gold Glitter Drops to draw a border around the image and add some accent dots here and here.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. I splattered the image with some Nuance Red Watercolor :)

I hope you enjoy this card!  I had so much fun creating it!

Until next time,
