SparkleNSprinkle - Christmas Candles Pop Up Card

Hello friends!

I'm here today with some more Christmas Card inspiration for you, featuring the amazing SparkleNSprinkle product line up!  Today, I have a pop-up card featuring the new Stamp Release, "Christmas Candles"

Supply List:

Create your Pop-Up!

I used a die from Lawn Fawn to create my "steps" on my insert.  I just used a simple white cardstock for this step.  I also printed off the digital stamp version (already colored!) of the flowers and the candles. Super easy, right?

Next, I set about embellishing my images.  I took the Silver Moondust Glitter Drops and added thm to the melting wax portion of the candle (it really looks like wax!).  I  used my Nuvo Small Glue Pen to add some Daisy Microfine Glitter to make the candles "glow" and some Tiger Orange Glitter to add to the flame!  I used the Red Berry Crystal Drops on the berries too.  Finally, I used the Nuvo Small Glue pen to trace some of the flower and added Sparkle Embossing Powder (heat setting of course!) to make the flower pop!

Once everything was dry, I added the candles and flower to the "pop ups" using small bits of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape.  Then I adhered the entire "pop-up panel" to a 5X6 Cardbase made from pretty patterned paper!

I added 2 strips of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape along the bottom and sprinkled on Fire Engine Red Glitter to embellish the inside. Finally, I stamped the greeting using Versamark Ink and adding Christmas Fire Embossing Powder, heat setting to finish.


I decided to leave the outside plain, but tied the entire card up with a pretty bow - just like a present! 


I will definitely be making a few more of these for my Christmas Card stash! :)

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time,

SparkleNSprinkle - Christmas Tag Card

Hello friends!

I'm here today with a gorgeous Christmas Card inspiration for you, featuring the amazing SparkleNSprinkle product line up!

Supply List:

Step 1 - Create your background
First of all, I took a large strip of 2.5" Tear-ific Tape and adhered it along the middle of my card.  I then took a piece of the 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and adhered it on the top and bottom of the 2.5" Tape.  I trimmed my card panel to resemble a large Christmas tag.

I ran the Silver Mirror Cardstock through my Big Shot machine using the Christmas Strips - Ribbons & Bows die and cut out the gorgeous bow pattern.  I then removed the backing of the 2.5" Tear-ific Tape and attached the bow. I made sure it was well burnished and attached.  I took my Denim Glitter and sprinkled it all over the remaining exposed adhesive, burnishing well, then removing the excess.

Next, I removed the backing from the 2 strips of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and added the Blue Haze Glitter - again, burnishing well and brushing off the excess.  Voila!  Background completed!

Step 2 - Complete your image
I took the Ornament tag image and stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock using Versamark Ink. I embossed it with Black Detail Embossing Powder and then colored the image with my Twin Touch Markers.  I used a large circle punch to cut out the image.


After it was colored, I used the Small Nuvo Glue Pen to add some Mediterranean Star Embossing Powder to the center of the ornament (making it look like an old-fashioned Mercury Ornament).  Next, I used the Large Glue Pen and ran it around the edges of the ornament tag, then sprinkled on the Blue Haze Glitter for some extra sparkle!

Step 3 - Assemble!
So, for the final step, I popped up the image using 3D Foam Tape and added a bit of White/Silver Pull ribbon for a "tag" effect.  

Such a simple card, yet it turned out sooo gorgeous!

Until next time,

Creative Corner Challenges - Black & White ONLY

Hello friends!

Welcome to another week at Creative Corner Challenges!  Our theme this week is Black & White Only.  We did not have a sponsor, so we had complete creative freedom!

Here is what I created:

I used my Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cartridge to make this card.  I added some glitter to the flowers.  The sentiment was embossed using Black Embossing Powder and some Magic Speckle for detail.

I hope you will come along and play with us this week!
