Corner Garden Shaker Card for SparkleNSprinkle

Hello Friends!
 
I'm back with my final April project for SparkleNSprinkle!  I used the beautiful Corner Garden Stamp set to create this fun shaker card.  It was actually a pretty easy card to make - and the Champagne Glass Glitter makes the perfect "shaker" material!
Supply List:

 To start the card, I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped my flower images using Versamark Ink, then embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder.  I watercolored the entire panel, adding pinks and blues to give a soothing vibe.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with Flashy Flamingo Embossing Powder. 
I stamped the butterfly image a few times onto a piece of scrap paper using Versamark Ink and embossed with Daffodil Embossing Powder. 
Next, I punched a window using a flower handheld punch.  I added a piece of Embossable acetate behind the cutout using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape.  Then I took some 3D Foam Tape and made a border around the window and the panel- on the back of course (sorry for the lack of pictures - they disappeared on me when I uploaded to my computer!). I filled the window with some glass glitter, and attached my background cardstock.  Phew!  That was a mouthful. 
 
I attached the butterflies with some extra pieces of foam tape and finished the card off with some of the Limoncello Jewel Drops!  Next time I make a shaker, I will try to double check my photos to ensure they all saved! LOL  I'm going to try to make a video too.
I hope you enjoyed this month's creations and can't wait to share my reveal card!

SparkleNSprinkle - Girlfriend Support 2....part 2!

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for me to share another card I created for SparkleNSprinkle!  This one again features the Girlfriend Support 2 Stamp Set.



Supply List:

Sweet Lilac Crystal Drops 668N
Black Detail Embossing Powder EP171
Pale Periwinkle Jewel Drops 649N
Impulsive Purple Glitter G1069
Medium Nuvo Glue Pen 203N

This was an awesomely fun card to make! :)

First, I started by stamping the main "undies" image onto a piece of watercolor paper and grabbed my watercolors.  I did a light wash on the background and painted the individual images.  Once it was dry, I brushed on the Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse around all the edges. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. I splattered on some more watercolor paints for a cool effect and let dry.



I applied the Impulsive Purple Glitter to the "undies" using the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen. I love how fast the glue dries!  I used the Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse one more time to the background cardstock.  Strips of ruffled ribbon were added to the back of the cardstock using 1/8" Tear-ific Tape.  All the layers were attached with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape too!




Finally, accents were added using the Sweet Lilac Crystal Drops and Pale Periwinkle Jewel Drops!  Man, I sure love those neat little drops!

I hope you enjoy this card!  Can't wait to share again next week!

SparkleNSprinkle - Girlfriend Support 2

Hello friends!

I'm here today with a new card creation for SparkleNSprinkle featuring the 


First, let me share the full supply list (if you click on each product, it will take you straight to it in the store!).

Supply List:


My first step was to make my background. I used the Stampendous Stencil Cathedral Windows and taped it down over top of a white piece of cardstock. Using a spatula, I spread over the Pink Flambe Embellishment Mousse until the stencil was completely covered. I carefully removed the stencil and immediately washed it (don't let it sit too long or else you will have to get your scrub brush out!).  I set it aside to dry and started to work on my main image panel.


 



I stamped the main image using Versafine Ink and watercolored (my new fave technique!). Once it dried, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Flashy Flamingo Embossing Powder. I adhered the white panel to a pink background cardstock using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. To add the lace underneath, I used 1/8" Tear-ific Tape (it works PERFECTLY!). 


To add some extra shine to the background, I rubbed on some of the Mother Of Pearl Embellishment Mousse and adhered it to another piece of pink cardstock with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. A piece of ribbon was added to the background and then I adhered the main image to the background using some foam dimensional squares.  Finally, I added Tonic Jewel Drops in Strawberry Coulis and Rose Water. 


I hope you enjoy this card - I had a lot of fun making it!  
See you next time!
