Hello glitter friends! It's Vicki here and I'm so excited to be sharing my very first post with you for Sparkle N Sprinkle! The October release was stunning and I'm excited to share with you something I've created using the digital set called Memory In Our Hearts:
The great advantage to using a digital set is that they come with pre-colored images as well as outlined images to create many different looks you're wanting. In addition to that, you can also manipulate the size and structure of your image as I have done with my card here. (This is a great way to come up with a unique design!)
I have taken some of the pre-colored "sprigs" in the fall theme color and sized and moved them around in a Word doc. to create my own Fall wreath with it! I then added the beautiful sentiment to the center and placed where I wanted it and then printed it out along with a couple more sprigs that you see on the inside of this design.
To step things up a notch, I've used a protractor to draw a circle around my wreath image as well as a larger circle for a mat behind it and cut them out. I took my ink blending tool and some Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks to add some color around the edges. Since I made a Fall wreath design, I wanted to add some glitter to the leaves. So I took the Nuvo Precision glue pen and added some Waterscape glitter over them. For the "berries", I took some Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Crystal Drops in random areas around the leaves. I made a bow with some natural twine and added it to the top of the wreath. (I did this same process for the smaller "sprigs" on the inside of the card as well.)
For my card design, I have made an "easel style" card (more on that below). My card size is a 5 1/2" square. I have used the same cardstock color that I've used to print out my wreath image and separated it in two panels to fit on the front of my card base. I took an embossing folder from my stash to add some texture to my design and also used the distress inks again to add some color around the edges. I used the Sparkle N Sprinkle dimensional glue to add some "dots" in the corners and then sprinkled some "Autumn Medley" glitter over them and let it dry. I have also taken some 1/4" Tear-iffic Tape to the middle edges of the card base and burnished some of this same "Autumn Medley" glitter to that. I think it really brings in that pretty Fall color theme with some added sparkle!
And for the inside of my card, you can see that those extra "sprigs" that I've printed and cut out create an easel style "stopper/display" funtion for my card design. It's easy to create this look with a score mark made in the center of the card front base as you can see with the circle wreath shown fully.
I have used some of the same colored cardstock as the printed out wreath for the inside of my card with some more distress inks along the edges as well as another strip of 1/4" Tear-iffic Tape along the bottom edge burnished with some more of that "Autumn Medley" glitter. I've used some foam tape to pop up the "sprig" cut out images so that they create the "stopper" for the front card base to rest while being displayed.
