SparkleNSprinkle - Kaitlyn Mermaid Pretty In Pink

Hello friends!
It's time for my last May Reveal Card at SparkleNSprinkle!  WOW!  May sure flew by!  My card today features the gorgeous Kaitlyn Mermaid Stamp Set.  Here is the complete supply list:
Supply List:

So this card had a bit of a "mixed media" vibe to it!  Unfortunately, my computer crashed and took most of my design pictures with it, so I will try my best to describe what I did! :)
First up, the background!
I took a piece of patterned paper and brushed on the Aquamarine & Peony Pink Embellishment Mousse around the edges. I added 2 strips of Tear-ific Tape along the bottom edge (1/8" and 1/2") and embossed with Rosa Embossing Powder.  Next, I added a layer of Moonstone Glimmer Paste with a spatula.  I just smeared it on like icing a cake! hehe  I set the piece aside and went to work watercoloring my image.
I stamped the cute mermaid onto a piece of white cardstock and watercolored her in.  I took my Raspberry Soda Glitter and adhered it with the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen.  I fussy cut her out and then went back to working on my background.  
I had this sort of "bubble" Cricut cut image laying around, so I thought it would be perfect with this "bubbly" card!  I embossed it using Versamark Ink and Mint Julep Embossing powder, then adhered it to the background with the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen.  I also did the sentiment in Mint Julep Embossing and edged it with the Aquamarine & Peony Pink Embellishment Mousse.
All the layers were adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and I added some foam squares to pop up the mermaid image. Finally, as an accent, I added some of the Violet Galaxy Crystal Drops!  I LOVE how it all turned out! :)
I hope you enjoy this card!  I certainly loved all the fun release stamps this month.  See you next time! :)

SparkleNSprinkle - Happy Flowers #2

Hello friends!

I'm back again with another pretty card for SparkleNSprinkle featuring the "Happy Flowers" Stamp Set.  

Supply List:

To start making this card, I applied a piece of 2.5" Tear-ific Tape across a piece of cardstock, removed the protective backing and applied Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter to the exposed adhesive. I burnished it well with my finger tool! :)

Next, I had a little fun!  I grabbed my Stazon Ink and stamped the sentiment randomly across the glitter!  How fun is that? It created a fun background and my sentiment in one step! Next, I applied 4 rows of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape (2 on the top and 2 across the bottom) and applied Berry Bliss Embossing Powder.  I heated it and created my border.   For the background piece, I simply ran a piece of green cardstock through my Big Shot with an embossing folder. Then I applied Spring Green Embellishment Mousse AND Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse to add dimension and shine.

I stamped the flowers onto white cardstock with Versafine Black Ink and watercolored (my new fave technique it appears - haha!). Once the flowers were dry, I added a touch of Diamond Dust Glitter, adhering with my Medium Glue Pen AND I also added some Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse randomly on the leaves.
The flowers were added to the card using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and all the layers were also adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape.  I finished off the card with accents of the Bright Gold Crystal Drops.

I hope you enjoy this card!  I'm looking forward to sharing a SUPER cute mermaid card with you next week!
Until next time,

MHKDesigns - Designer Inspiration - May 2017

Hello friends!

It's time to share my May Designer Inspiration for MHKDesigns!

I chose to work with a Stamp Set called "Birds & Branches".  I just love this set!  It is so versatile and lovely.  I printed off the digital stamps and watercolored.

Here is what I created:

All I added from my stash were the buttons and some ribbon.  I used a bit of shimmer spray as well.  I hope you LOVE this card as much as I do!
