New Card Creations

It's been a while since I have posted anything. Well a lot has been going on. First, I have rearranged and added a few new fixtures to my stamping area. It really has turned out great. More room, more storage, and more organized. For me, that's saying a lot.

Next my brother is getting married next Saturday and I attended a luncheon held for the bride to be. It was so nice, her sisters, daughter, grandkids and other friends and family members were there. It was so nice. Next Saturday is their big day. Can't wait.

Lastly what has taken most of my time are the 4 cards that I designed for Sparkle N Sprinkle.I was given 2 different stamp sets of fairies and my task was to come up with two different designs per set. So, check these cards out. Hope you enjoy them. These sets are available at Sparkle N Sprinkle's online store along with a whole host of other stamp sets and other goodies.

This card is from set 395 and this fairy is called Water Fairy. She is so pretty, in fact all the fairies on this set and the next one you are going to be looking at, are pretty and will work for many different occasions.

This Fairy is from set 396 and she is called Sleeping Fairy. All the stamped images on this card are from that set.

Next is Garden Fairy, from set 396 . She looks cute sitting in her garden, doesn't she?
And last but not least, is Fairy Moon and she is in set 395. These sets were so fun to use to design cards. Do you notice that there is glitter all over the embossed background and the purple cardstock under the fairy on this card? Well, it is so easy to make your own glitter paper and you can use any color cardstock. You can punch, die cut and even use embossing folders to achieve stunning results.Here are the easy directions:
Use a Versamark stamp pad and coat the total area of the cardstock that you want to glitter. Next cover the inked area with Shimmer Embossing Powder (EP137) from Sparkle N Sprinkle, tap off excess and use your heat tool to set. That is all there is to making your own Glitter Paper. And it's less expensive to make your own.

Note: Items can be layered on top of you glitter paper, just make sure you use a strong double sided tape, like redline tape or Tear-ific tape.

Well that's it for now, thanks for stopping by, see you soon,

Barbara, love the glitter background, and the hint of glittery mysticism on the darling fairies! Using the combination of punches and dies on your cards makes them very interesting and eye-catching!
