I have a brand new SparkleNSprinkle card to share with you today!!! This adorable puppy is from the New Release Stamp Set called "Sophie Pup".
Here is my complete supply list from SNS:
Alrighty! Let's get creating this gorgeous HANDMADE CARD!
First, I started by stamping my adorable puppy image with Versafine Black Ink, then colored it with the NEW Nuvo Marker Pens!!! I didn't record which colors I used, I completely forgot! Sorry :) I will try to remember next time. These markers blend beautifully! I am new to Alcohol Marker coloring, but I found them very easy to work with. Then, using the Clear Mark Embossing Pen, I added some SILVER Embossing Powder to the flag pole :) I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and embossed with Red Apple Embossing Powder. I also added a hint of the Red Apple Embossing Powder to the maple leaf on the flag.
I trimmed the image out and used some red textured cardstock as a mat background. Of course I used 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to adhere all my layers! For the EMBOSSED gold background, I actually had the Embossing Folder Version of the Fireworks Stencil! BUT you could make the same background with the mirror cardstock using the stencil - just dry emboss it from the back!! Isn't it a simple, yet GORGEOUS way to create a background? I figured that a celebration like Canada Day (or the Fourth of July!) can always include fireworks, right?
All of the layers were adhered with the 1/2" Tear-ific Tape! Finally, I used the Red Berry Crystal Drops and Silver Moondust Glitter Drops were added to finish off the handmade card.
Clean, elegant and ready to celebrate all things Canadian!!! I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial! Have a great day!!!
