Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle “Sparkling Wintry Sensations” blog hop!

For my sparkling wintry card, I created a sheet of faux postage stamps using the pine forest image and a small, rectangular cut out (or reverse mask). I inked the forest w/ several colors of green pigment inks then stamped it inside the mask. I just moved the mask and repeated 5 more times. The wording and numbers were inked w/ a dk pink marker and stamped on top to complete the “stamp” look. I used a perforating blade in between the stamps and cut the outside w/ postage stamp scissors.

The sentiment was die cut and attached to a fancy tag die cut. (Cutting this die is super easy w/ the Grand Calibur!) The reindeer was inked w/ the pink pigment inks, stamped an cut out. I used a glue pen and Sparkling Snow glitter on the reindeer and to add snowflakes to my postage stamps. I used the Mauvelous glitter on the fancy tag and reindeer antlers. The peony colored layer behind the postage was die cut using a scallop border die. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.5.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT323) at Splitcoast, I went the easy route today and used a song for inspiration. I needed a grad card for my nephew and while making it, I kept hearing “Pomp & Circumstance” the whole time, lol. Since I was in the band all the way thru school, I bet I’ve played this song a million times.

All images are Sparkle N Sprinkle. Anyway, I gold embossed the greeting and diploma and die cut w/ a Spellbinders circle. The ruffled gold is two cupcake liners that I split, removed the middles and put them together to form a lg circle. I used a MS diamonds edge punch on the black glitter dp and formed a circle w/ it. The final part of the medallion is just strips of metallic gold ribbon attached to the back. (I didn’t have time for a video, but I did take some pics so hopefully soon, I’ll have them up for you to see.)

The black glossy layer is backed w/ a gold glitter dp layer. On the white layer, I used the CB swiss dots on top and the QK stripe label on the bottom. The stripes are very visible because I used them to line up and attach narrow strips of black and gold glitter dp. I saw some glitter striped dp in the store but it was the wrong color so I made my own to match. Finished card measures 5 x 6.5 (A6).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Best of 2011

I’m going to share two different cards made using the same set, 1900 Cars set 285. For the travel card above, I used two different map papers, a new banner die set and labels 17  from Spellbinders. The antique autos on both cards were colored using a combination of  markers and Prismacolor pencils. For the Travel greeting, I used a bookplate die and bowed it slightly when I attached it.

On the Classic card below, I cut out the roadster and also an extra left side (facing the viewer) and layered it on the base image for a little extra dimension. The background scene was stamped, masked, sponged and then colored w/ markers. The white frame used a lg oval Spellbinders die and a dot border embossing folder which I used a stylus to hand emboss around the frame.  Both cards measure 5.5 x 4.25. The Travel and Classic cards w/ full instructions are also on the SNS website.
