Hello from Designer Chris! My card today uses the new Puppy Love, which is one of the stamp sets for the December release. I love this stamp!! I used the pre-colored digi stamp version, and I also die cut the card panel using the Swirling Frame Layering Tonic Die and some tear-ific tape and glitter. Let's check out how I made this card, and what I did to jazz it up a bit with glitter and more!

This puppy stamp set makes me so happy! I sized the digital image, using my computer in a word program. I sized the puppy, then sized the balloons and layered them behind the pup, and added in one of the sentiments. This is one of the things I love most about digi stamps - you can make them any size you want and put anything in the foreground or background. And these Sparkle N Sprinkle digi stamp sets typically come in "pre-colored" options (usually a couple color options) and non-colored option. You can make it whatever you want! After everything was sized to what I wanted, I printed two copies of the image, onto white cardstock, using my color ink jet printer. I fussy cut out one of the pups. I rolled on some Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen to the hearts on the pup's shirt, and sprinkled on Frosted Carmine glitter. I also drew a bit of glue pen onto the pup himself, and sprinkled on Golden Wheat glitter. I swiped some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen onto his nose and eyes, and then covered both with a squeeze of Sparkle N Sprinkle Dimensional Glue. I mounted this pup onto a Mini Action Wobbler and adhered it onto the card panel.
For the big heart, I had also sized the sentiment onto the balloon heart. I squeezed on some Dimensional Glue onto the exclamation point, and sprinkled on Sparkling Snow glitter. I rolled on more Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen onto the heart for some accents, and sprinkled on Tooth Fairy glitter. This gave the heart a little extra pop!
To decorate the image, I die cut it with Tonic's Swirling Frame Layering Die Set and then layered some 3/4" Tear-ific Tape behind the edge. I sprinkled on and pressed Raspberry Soda glitter into the tear-ific tape which adhered to the adhesive that appeared through the frame edge. I burnished in the glitter with my finger tool and then dusted off the remaining glitter with my Glitter Brush. This really made the white cardstock pop too, and is such a fun and easy way to add a lot of sparkle to the card! I layered this over trimmed pink cardstock and then layered all of this over a black card base.
This was a really fun and easy card to make. Those digi stamps really make it easy - and I used the pre-colored digi image as well, so I didn't have to spend any time coloring, I just got to decorate and have fun! I know you will love this sweet Puppy Love stamp set. You gotta get it - perfect for our upcoming Valentine's Day!
And, this is my last post for Sparkle N Sprinkle. I am stepping down from the Design Team. It has been an absolute pleasure and honor being on this company's Design Team since 2015. Margaret, the Queen of Glitter is incredibly generous and an amazing person. Demo Donna is so much fun, and so incredibly creative. I love watching her videos and seeing her awesome creations. All the design team ladies that I have worked with over these last three years inspire and teach me something every day. I am humbled by what they have taught me, and so inspired by each and every project they create. They have all been consistently kind, supportive, and so helpful. I totally cherish the memories I made with these amazing gals. I miss you all, already!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
