SparkleNSprinkle - Leafy Spring Flower Wreath #2

Hello friends!

I have another gorgeous card for SparkleNSprinkle today featuring the Leafy Spring Flower Wreath Stamp!

Supply List:

Memento Ink - Angel Pink

As I always say, this card was quite simple to make! ;)

First, I stamped the wreath image using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder. After it was cool, I used a sponge to apply the Angel Pink Memento Ink all around the edges of the card front as well as all over the embossed wreath. This sure made the wreath pop out of the page! 


Next, I grabbed the Woodland Green Crystal Drops and squeezed some out on a palette.  I took my aquapainter, carefully picked up some of the drop, then diluted with the water and painted the leaves of my wreath! Such a neat technique!  You can water it down as much as you want to get the desired effect.


I stamped the ribbon area out on a piece of white cardstock using Versamark Ink an heat embossed it with Fabulous Grape Embossing Powder. I used the painting technique once again to paint the ribbon using Rose Water Jewel Drops.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with Berry Bliss Embossing Powder. Angel Pink ink was used again to make the sentiment pop out. The sentiment was fussy cut out and attached using foam squares. I added a piece of ribbon for a bit of extra effect (adhered with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape of course!)

Finally, to finish off the card, I added Rose Water & Limoncello Jewel Drops!

I hope you love this card as much as I do!  See you next time,

SparkleNSprinkle - Luck of the Irish Enchantress #1

Hello friends!

Today's SparkleNSprinkle card is all about St. Patrick's Day! :)

Supply List:

Palm Green Embossing Powder EP372

I just love this image!  She's totally adorable! I stamped the image using Versafine Ink and then watercolored. A bit of Velvet Rose Gold Gglitter was added to her hair and the shamrocks using the Small Glue Pen. I cut a the image out using the Cockle Shell Die from Tonic Studio and stamped a few shamrocks using Versamark ink.  The shamrocks were embossed with Palm Green Embossing Powder. The background was cut using the ZigZag & Floral Motif Tonic Die and all the layers were adhered with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. To finish off the card, I added a few accents of the Sunlit Meadow Glitter Drops and some ribbon.  The sentiment was stamped using Versafine Ink.

I hope you enjoyed this card!  I had a lot of fun making it.

See you next time!

SparkleNSprinkle - Pansies in Teacup #2

Hello friends!

Today's SparkleNSprinkle post is another card featuring the "Pansies in Teacup"
Stamp Set!

Supply List:

Platinum Detail Embossing Powder EP 326

This card is simple and gorgeous (in my humble opinion! hehe).

First, I stamped the Teacup image onto pink cardstock using Versamark Ink.  I embossed with Platinum Detail Embossing Powder.  To make the "cup" part, I simply followed the same process - stamping the image onto patterned paper this time and fussy cutting out.  I did a little paper piecing and voila!  There was my pretty teacup!


I added a frame of 1/2" Tear-ific tape to a piece of white cardstock.  After removing the protective backing, I sprinkled on the Robin's Egg Embossing Powder, burnished it with my finger tool and heat set.  I set this aside and continued onto my next layer. The flower image was stamped onto a pieces of patterned paper and I embossed it with the Robin's Egg Embossing Powder! Since it is Semi-Transparent, it leaves the pattern of the paper showing through and a hint of the design!  I love it.

I did the same thing to a piece of pink cardstock that I had previously ran through my Big Shot with an embossing folder and distressed slightly.

The sentiment was Embossed with Platinum Detail Embossing Powder.

Finishing Up

All of the layers were adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape.  I just love how elegant this card turned out, don't you?

Until next time,
