Baby, Oh Baby

Hi everyone! My card today is showing a new Baby, Oh Baby #857 Digital stamp set. 
It was time then I loved to color all the images myself. It has changed and now I really enjoy using pre-colored digis. Then you buy a Digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle you will not get only an outline image but also a colored version. So you can choose, which one to use. 
Originally this beautiful mom is looking to left. I took an advantage of digital stamps and flipped her to face right. To add a little sparkle to the image I 'colored' flowers with Sakura Glue Pen and covered glue with Merlot Microfine Glitter. Same thing is done with the word 'Joy'.  Sentiment is part of the stamp set. To add more bling to her I also added dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow) and Nuvo Glitter Drops (Pink Champagne) to her wreath. 

Decorative layer behind the sentiment is die cut with Spellbinders die (Lacy Ovals). I covered it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Squash Embossing Powder. I added another layer of Versamark ink and Squash EP to get even thick layer of this lovely marbled embossing powder. Some dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow) was added to the frame.


I masked upper part of the background and did some stamping with stamp from Demo Donna's Stylin Sayings #777 set and Versamark ink. Image was stamped repeatedly side by side with variation in how low or high it was stamped.  It was heat embossed with Squash Embossing Powder. White lace was adhered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Rest of the revealed tape was covered with Merlot Microfine Glitter.

Background papers are from Watercolor Papers Purple & Pink Digital Papers set. Pink one is cut slightly smaller then yellow paper. I inked their edges with Distress inks (Picked Raspberry for pink and Mustard Seed for yellow paper). Butterflies on the card are punched from same yellow paper I used for bottom layer. After I adhered pink paper on top, you can't even see that it has holes in it.

My favorite stamp set from June reveal is Swallowtail Butterflies #856. It has very beautiful butterflies in two different size and also matching silhouette stamps and many lovely sentiments. Love it!
I stamped detail image of the large butterfly to the Vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Black Detail Embossing Powder. Before stamping I prepared the Vellum with Anti Static Bag to make sure that Embossing Powder only sticks where it should.  Back side of the Butterflies is colored with Yellow Promarker and Lilac Blossom watercolor brush pen from Nuvo Aqua Flow set named Spring Meadow. Right side of the wings are covered with Nuvo Glitter Drops (Honey Gold). After it was dry, I fussy cut it out with scissors. His body is covered with Dimensional Glue and Night Sky Sparkle N Soft.


To make the layer underneath the Vellum Butterfly, I stamped the big silhouette butterfly to the white cardstock with Memento Dandelion ink. Color of the ink is not important because it won't show on the card, unless you peek underneath the butterfly wings. I thought that yellow layer under the Vellum butterfly would be nice but after I cut out the silhouette butterfly I changed my mind. I turned the wrong side up and covered it with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Citrus Green). Loved this color more, so green side became my right side. Vellum butterfly is adhered to it from the middle.



Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink to the Black Cardstock. I used White Detail Embossing Powder to heat emboss the sentiment.  Black Cardstock was prepared with Anti Static Bag before stamping.


I adhered White heart to the piece of white cardstock which was covered with  2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific TapeOceanic Glass Glitter was sprinkled to part of the heart, rest of it was covered with Margarita Microfine Glitter.


I had so much fun with this purple background. I played with Nuvo Aqua Flow and Glitter Markers. First I applied water to the watercolor cardstock and then added a light coat of  Lilac Blossom with Aqua Flow pen from Spring Meadow set. I also scribbled some purple from Northern Lights Glitter Marker set to the craft mat. I diluted it with water and applied on top of the Lilac Blossom layer. It gave it very nice shimmer. While watercolor paper was still wet I stamped some small butterflies on top with silhouette stamp. Instead of Ink I used same Lilac Blossom Aqua Flow pen.  



Background layer is matted on top of the cardstock. It's edges are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Suede Microfine Glitter.
To add a bit more decorative elements, I adhered paper doily on top of watercolor background and made some dots with  Nuvo Crystal Drops (Neptune)

True Beauty

Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed in the beginning of May a stunning new stamp set named True Beauty #844. I used Digi version of the same set on my card. 


Wonderful thing about SNS Digi stamps is that they also include a pre-colored images. I added some shine and sparkle to this lovely Peacock. His wings are covered with light coat of Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (diluted with water). This gave to his wings a slight golden shimmer and didn't covered original color. Same Mousse is also added to his feathers. For more sparkle I adhered Priceless Peacock Glitter with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to some places and also dots of Dazzling Blue Nuvo Glitter Drops.


Sentiment is printed to the white cardstock and it's cut out with Spellbinders die (Radiant Rectangles). While paper was inside of the die, I inked the background with Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean). Golden frame is drawn with brush and Indian Gold Mousse
A strip of lace was adhered to this panel as well. I added Nuvo Glitter Drops (Dazzling Blue and Sunlit Meadow) to the inside of the holes of the lace. 


To cover the card base I made a panel (cut with Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies) and colored it with Indian Gold Mousse. I adore this color. To the back side of the panel I placed 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to cover the holes. It also acted as adhesive to glue the panel on top of the card base. Revealed sticky parts was covered with Priceless Peacock Glitter.


Card base is made out of two panels cut with largest die from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles set. To one of them I made a score line about 1 cm from top and glued two panels together above the score line.

Brighten My Day

Can you see that summer is on my mind - warm sunshine, pretty flowers and shimmering blue sea. This card is inspired from all of that. Sparkle N Sprinkle latest stamp reveal is giving you lots of beautiful images to make a summer card.
Background paper is from Digital Rainbow of Pastels Patterned Paper Pack. It won't show very well on the photos but edges of the paper are inked with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Peony Pink) to add even more shimmer.

For the focal image I used pre-colored picture from Flower Girl - Magic in You Digi set. It's die cut with stitched circle die. Edges are slightly inked with Peony Pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I added Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops to the girl accessories and Sherbert Shimmer to the flower center. Sentiment is also from the same Digi set.


Matting layer underneath the image is made from two die cut shapes (Spellbinders Decorative Labels One). Before adhering them together, I covered them with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Ocean Glitter. Two square shapes made a pretty doily. 


For the flowers I used Spellbinders dies (Blooms Four). They are inked with Carved Pumpkin and Fossilized Amber Distress inks. After shaping them I added Sherbert Shimmer Nuvo Glitter Drops to the center. Leafy swirls are also cut with Spellbinders die (Sprigs). They are colored with Nuance watercolor powder (Jade).


Little dots of Nuvo Jewel Drops (Orange Marmalade) was added to the card. Matting layer of the background paper are covered with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Ocean Glitter.

Mer-mazing

Are you ready for summer and beach? I can't wait for warm and sunny weather. We had small relapse in Estonia. No one wasn't prepared for the snow in May. But it's getting better now... 

As a main image on my card I used new stamp sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle -  digi version of Kaitlyn Mermaid set #847. I used pre-colored image and just added light blue to the background. To add my personal touch I colored the sand with Versamarker pen, covered it with Hit the Beach Embossing Powder and heat embossed. Her tale was done the same way but I used Sparkle EP. Her lips and stump was painted over with watercolor brush and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Peony Pink). Waterfall Glitter was adhered with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to her blouse and hair. Top her hairpiece and bracelet I added Nuvo Glitter Drops (Honey Gold).


It was very fun to make the background. Sentiment is from same Kaitlyn Mermaid digi set. I placed it on top of the blue digi paper from Rainbow of Pastels Patterned Paper Pack and printed it out. Paper is ripped in to strips. Starting from the top I adhered those strips to a scrap paper and after that It is trimmed to the size I needed. I scribbled Versamarker pen over the blue paper and heat embossed it with Sparkle EP.  

I brought out an older stamp set named Mermaid Kisses #529. I used Memento (Tuxedo Black) ink to stamp two different small images with seashells to the white cardstock. They are colored with Promarkers. I also added Nuvo Embellishment Mousse with waterbrush to make them shiny: Peony Pink to the shell and  Mother of Pearl to the pearls. I also added Nuvo Jewel Drops on them: Grey Mist to the pearls and Rose Water to the pink shell. Starfish is covered with Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops


Nuvo Jewel Drops, in color of Sea Breeze, was added all over the card. They looks air bubbles.

To make the matting layer I covered the edges of the carstock with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape, adhered top layer in center and covered rest of the tape with Denim Microfine Glitter.

I used Happy Flowers Digi Bundle for my Reveal card. The set includes lots of differently colored images, sentiments, decoupage sheets and digi papers.


This lovely yellow flower is one of the pre-colored images from the digi bundle. I printed two copies of them. One was cut with narrow white border all around. From second image I needed only flower petals. They are fussy cut without any border. I added some Daisy Microfine Glitter to the petals with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen. Fussy cut petals are adhered with glue (from the bottom) and foam tape to flower image with in an angel. 


Sentiment is from the same digi bundle. I used a die from Spellbinders Floral ovals set as a template and draw an oval around the sentiment and cut it out with scissors. This way it will mach perfectly with the matting layer. A bit of Broken China Distress Inks was added to the edges.
To make the matting layer I covered piece of white cardstock with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and die cutted it with Floral Oval die. I adhered sentiment to the center and covered rest with Daisy and Purple Rain Glitters. 


I used purple pre-colored flowers from the bundle to make my own pattern paper. I just placed bunch of flowers in different angle on top of the to light blue background. After printing it out I added Semi-Transparent  Orchid glitter with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen to the flowers.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. To the top and left side of the layer I added Daisy glitter and bottom and left side are covered with Purple Rain Glitter.

To make the background a bit more interesting I added a piece of embossed vellum on top of it.


As an embellishments I used lace, pearl string and few dots of Pale Perriwinkle Nuvo Jewel Drops.


The next stop on our blog hop is Shona with her amazing card.
