I worked with both of the stamp sets for this reveal and I am super excited to share my creations with you!  This is my first time as a Guest Designer with SparkleNSprinkle and I am so honored to be a part of this fabulous team!

For my first card, I used the Cool Chicks DIGI725B Digi Stamp set. For the gold background, I used a chevron embossing folder with Zeus Gold Paper layered on top of a pretty pink cardstock.  I printed the digi image on white cardstock and fussy cut her out.  I added some Ballerina Pink glitter on her shoes and her flower, adhered with glue pen. 

 I used Versamark all over the entire image, covered with Clear-Detail embossing powder and heat set.  I took another smaller piece of white cardstock and added 1/2 inch Tear-ific Tape all around the edges.  Then I added Ballerina Microfine glitter to make the sparkly border.  To attach our little chickie, I used Foam Squares and popped her up for more impact. The sentiment was printed out and cut to shape with paper snips.  I then used the Glue Pen to line the edge and sprinkled Raspberry Soda glitter for a little extra pop!  Once again, I used Versamark and Clear Detail embossing powder to make the sentiment really shiny.  

I finished if off my tying a pretty yellow ribbon around the top, attached the sentiment with Foam squares and added a few glitter gems from my stash for detail.

1/2" Tear-ific Tape [SAT04]
Foam Squares [01612]

Sakura Glue Pen [quicky]

For my second card, I used the Birds of a Feather Digi Stamp set.

 I once again used the Zeus Gold cardstock, but this time used a "bubble circle" embossing folder to give it texture.  I fussy cut the fancy "chick" after printing it off.  I added Terrific Blue Glitter to her pearls using the Sakura Glue Pen. I also added the glitter to her shoes to make them pop. For a fun twist, I took some Brushable glue and painted it in a random pattern on a small strip of the Zeus Gold paper.  I the added Poolside Embossing Powder and heat set.  It made it puffy and fun! I attached all the layers onto a light blue cardstock background using Tear-ific tape of course!

I used a Demo Donna technique to empahsize the sentiment on this one.  In her most recent Video Technique club, she taught us how to add embossing powder using a ball-point pen.  I used this technique with Silver embossing powder. I added the sentiment and the chick with foam squares. 

The next stop on our blog hop is Ani.  I had so much fun working with these images and I hope you enjoy them too. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
