Get Well

Hi Everyone,
Happy Summer!!!! Well I have been busy giving my monthly classes and I also took time to actually take a class over at Scraps Etc.-KY. The class was so great. Karen Burniston was in town and she gave a fabulous class. We made 4 fantastic cards using her easy to use Sizzix dies that she has designed. I will be back in a few days to show you the cards we made.

In the meantime I have also been busy making a few cards for Sparkle N Sprinkle. I want to show you this one in particular.

I designed this card using lots of glitter and some embossing powder. The stamps are on the nicest set, called Swirls (set 497). Love this set

I decided to use glitter as a layering element and after I attached my two designer papers I added a border of 1/2" tape around all four edges of the card. I then covered the tape with glitter. Next I added a trellis piece and layered that on top of the DP.

I stamped the flower, heart and the butterfly using black ink. On the butterfly, I colored it using Spectrum Noir markers and then covered the image with glue and I covered the butterfly with Sparkling Snow glitter.
On the hearts I then traced the black swirls using a glue pen. I covered the glue with Meadow Spark Glitter.

The flower was covered in the center area of the image with VersaMark. Then I covered the VersaMark with  Shimmer EP, tapped off the excess and heat set it.(It's hard to see but its there. LOL)

All of the images were fussy cut and I used dimensional foam to mount the flowers and the hearts.

The sentiment was stamped in the same black ink and I used Spellbinders Labels Three to cut out the sentiment and the bordered piece under the sentiment. 

Here is a review of what I used on this card:

For the next day or so I am purging. Simply Said Rubber Stamps in Loveland Ohio, is having a used stamp sale next Saturday and I am bound and determined to get rid of a lot of stuff (to make room for more). So if you are in the area, ya might want to check out her sale, I know there will be some great deals.

Well I hope you have a great week this week. I will be back soon.
