Hello! It's Nancy here with my first post for Sparkle N Sprinkle!
I'm excited to be joining this wonderful team, and promoting this great shop!
I'm looking forward to sharing my projects with you!
For my first project, I've created a card using a digital stamp from the February Release. This is from the new set called Showers of Tulips.
Here's my card:
Sparkle N Sprinkle Products Used:
New May Showers Digital Stamp Bundle, Digi 920-923J
New Showers Of Tulips digital Stamp Set, DIGI923J
New May Showers Digital Stamp Set, DIGI920J
Here's how I did it:
I began by choosing the wreath from the 923J set, and the bow from the 920J set. I used the Print and Cut on my Cricut Explore to print/cut them out. Then could be fussy cut by hand. The wreath could also be cut out with a circle die. I chose the sentiment from the 923J set and printed it out.
I created a 5 1/2" card base from matching green cardstock.
Then I trimmed my sentiment down to 3 1/2". I rounded the corners to ensure nothing poked out beneath the wreath.
Using a grid mat to ensure straight lines, I added a line of 1/8" Tear-ific tape around the edge of my card front. I placed the tape 1/8" from the edge. I crossed over at the corners, as shown in the photo.
I peeled off the paper backing, and sprinkled the diamond dust liberally over the exposed tape. I burnished well with my fingers. It's so sparkly that it messed with my camera focus! lol
I adhered the sentiment to the center of the card front.
Using my fingers, I shaped the bow to give it some extra dimension.
Then I added some Brushable Glue to all the spots where I wanted to add some glitter. I used tweezers to hold it, and liberally sprinkled the Diamond Dust over the wet glue. It will dry completely clear.
I added the wreath in place over the sentiment using foam tape. When the bow was dry, I also used foam tape to adhere it in place on the wreath.
See how beautifully that Brushable glue dried on the bow?
Here you can see all the lovely dimension:
One final look at the finished card:
