You Brighten My Days

Something unexpected happened on a Tuesday (October 25th) morning 5 AM, then my cat woke me up just to let me know that dog wants to come inside. I opened the door and balcony was covered with snow. So pretty. 
This card also reminds me a first snow fall in cold Autumn night. I love how it turned out. 


I used Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas Candles Digital Set 807. The rose is printed three times. From one of them I fussy cut the rose and big leaves, from second copy only the rose was fussy cut. To cut the last one, I placed a Spellbinders die template from Labels Eighteen set on top and traced the inner frame and fussy cut it out with scissors. It's much easier then Out of the Box Die Cutting technique if you have several delicate parts which goes 'out of the box'. All coloring is done with Promarkers. On top of the tiny circles I added a White Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Matting layer is die cutted out of white cardstock with same Label die I used before. I covered the edges of the label with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and added Reflection Glitter on top. Image layer is placed in center and fussy cut images was adhered with foam tape.


Can you guess from where did I got the fence image? No...? Its from same Christmas Candles Digital Set. Now you say: "But there is no fence image". You are right. I used candles instead. I placed several of them next to each other, stretched them vertically and cut off the top. What a lovely fence I got :) It's colored with Promarkers. I also added some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. Loopy Lace die cut from Die-Versions was adhered behind the fence.


Background is inked with Faded Jeans and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. I sprinkled some water droplets on top, let them set a bit and then dried them off. Speckles of Super Thick White Embossing Powder was added to all over the background (including the fence). EP was melted from underneath the cardstock.


Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and  Reflection Glitter.

Christmas Tags Set With a Box


Hi! Here is a little project I made with Sparkle N Sprinkle new Christmas Tags #1 Stamp Set 805 - a box with four gift tags.
I kept the box clean and simple. Images are stamped with Versamark ink to a White cardstock. I added Silver Lightning Embossing powder on top and heated to set. They are cut out with Circle die from Spellbinders. To the pattern paper I drew some lines with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen, covered it with Blueberry EP and heat setted the powder with heating tool.


To make the lacy edge peeking underneath the pattern paper I die cutted two strips of white cardstock with Die-Versions Loopy Lace die. They are covered with Versamark ink and Silver Lightning EP, which was heat set with heating tool. To finish up the decoration I added some Silver Lining Nuvo Crystal Drops.


 Inside of the box has two compartments to hold four gift tags.


I stamped each tag image with Versamark ink two times. One of each image was heat embossed with Blueberry Embossing Powder and others with Silver LightningBecause of my bad language skills It's difficult to explain what I did but I hope you understand... I ended up with eight stamped and heat embossed images. I used Spellbinders circle die to die cut for of them (one silver and one blue with bauble, one silver and one blue with tree). Rest of four images was colored with markers and I fussy cut inner circles with scissors.



Silver Lining Nuvo Crystal Drops was added to top part of the baubles and to the trees stars. Christmas trees are covered with Emerald City Nuvo Crystal Drops. To assemble tag fronts I adhered image with blue center to a silver base. 


To make the tags complete I die cutted four more circles, inked them with Broken China Distress Ink while they was inside of the die template, and stamped the words with Versamark ink. They are heat embossed with Blueberry and Silver Lightning Embossing Powders. Between front and back sides of the tags I adhered little tags, which was die cutted with Spellbinders Back To Basics Tags set.


Here's one more photo of the box and all tags.

Elephant Christmas

Hi! Today I show you a card made with new Sparkle N Sprinkel Elephant Christmas Tree Digital Stamp Set 802.


Best part about digital stamps is that you can make them as big or small you need. I sized my elephant to fit behind the window. Image is colored with markers. I added a layer of glue with Sakura Glue Pen to his hat trim and covered it with Crystal Ice glitter. Same glue was added to the ornaments on the tree. Stars was covered with Aztec Gold glitter and some parts of the bigger baubles with Crystal Ice glitter. All Tree Ornaments was covered after glittering with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to give them a glass effect.


To make the window frame I used a piece of white textured cardstock and cut a square holes with one of the dies from Nellie Snellen Photo Frames set. Top part of the window is partially cut with largest die from Spellbinders Labels Thirty-Six set. I covered window frame with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Apparently some speckles of Gray Nuance water-soluble powder was picked up in that process... I like it! Happy accident. Speckles of gray in crackled frame looks very nice. Behind the frame I adhered a piece of Acetate. To make it look like it has been snowed, I added Dimensional Glue to different places on the window and sprinkled Bridal glitter on top.


I found this glittered poinsettia flower and holly branch from my leftover basket. To make them I covered piece of paper with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Branch is cut with Creative Expressions Holly Sprays die and flower with same company die - Classic Poinsettia. Branches are covered with Lator Gator and flower with Gypsy Red glitters. Same red glitter was adhered with Dimensional Glue to the branches. Flower center was made with Dimensional Glue and Aztec Gold glitter.


Background was so much fun to make. I took a piece of watercolor cardstock, placed Want2Scrap Bricks Stencil on top and used White Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to make the brick pattern. After removing the stencil I covered embossing paste with Bronze Rose Embossing Powder. I let the paste dry and used the heat tool to melt the embossing powder. Apparently the paste wasn't completely dry, it started to bubble up in some places. I'm ok with it. Actually it gives more texture to the bricks. Space between the bricks was colored with Gray Nuance water-soluble powder. The wall was made before the window. Next time I try to remember to clean up the craft mat a bit better after using Nuance powders :)

Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Aztec Gold glitter.

On this card I used Turkey Dish stamp set. Image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers. 


I used Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to cover her classes and the plate.


To make the background I smudged Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks to the craft mat, spritzed it with water and placed watercolor cardstock on top. After paper was dry, I placed it back to the ink to get some colorful splatters to the background.


Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink, covered with Pebbled Copper embossing powder and heat set. The sentiment which was stamped directly to the background didn't show up very well, so I used a white gel pen to outline it. Now it's good.



There must be some colorful leaves on Autumn card... I don't have any leaf die, so I used Silhouette machine to cut them in different shapes and sizes. Leaves are inked with same Distress Inks as the background. I also sprinkled some Cranberry EP to half of the them and Pumpkin Pie EP to rest of the leaves. 


Edges of the matting layers are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Bronze Splendor glitter. I used a die from Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles set to make the piercing holes to some layers.
