SparkleNSprinkle - The Fish Whisperer

Hello friends!

I'm so excited to be back today with another fun SparkleNSprinkle card!  This card reminds my of my brother-in-law! In fact, I think I'm going to have to make him one. He is the ultimate fisherman and lives for both ice-fishing and summer fishing!  hmm...that get's me thinking...I may just have to put "Gus" into some snow scenes for my "ice-Fish Whisperer". What do you think? Stay tuned!

Onto the card!  First up, as always, my SNS supply list!

Supply List:

Forest Green Cardstock
Light Green Cardstock
White Cardstock
Lawn Fawn Grass Die
Sizzix Circle Dies

Now, this card was pretty simple to create, but I think masculine cards should be fairly simple - not frilly!  Well, my masculine cards anyways! ;)  I started with my "Gus" - that is the Fish Whisperer's name - isn't he cute?  I love this Bugaboo stamp. I stamped him onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed using Black Detail Embossing Powder.  I colored him using various Tonic Nuvo Glitter Markers - these are so much fun to use! 


Next up, grass creation!  Now, I made the grass at the same time as for my last week's card, so these pics will be the same!  I covered the paper with Versamark Ink, then sprinkled on my Stickum Powder.  Once it was heat set and sticky, I added my Grassy Green flocking and burnished in with my finger tool.  Then I cut out the "grass" using my Lawn Fawn Grass Die!  I think it's great when you can make multiple card "parts" from one technique step! :)


The sentiment was stamped onto some scrap white cardstock using Versamark Ink and embossed with Forest Green Embossing Powder. I cut out the sentiment using my Sizzix Circle Dies and cut some matching circles using my other cardstock colors. I adhered the layers using 1/2'" Tear-ific Tape. To add a bit more flair, I rolled the edge of the sentiment piece through my Versamark Ink to ink up the edges, then added more Forest Green Embossing Powder. This gave me a frame!  

All layers were adhered together with my 1/2" Tear-ific Tape. Finally, I used the Bottle Green Metallic Crystal Drops to finish framing the sentiment and embellish the card!

I'm entering this card in the Bugaboo Challenge! :)

I hope you enjoyed my Fish Whisperer card!  Have a great weekend!
