Exciting Guest Design News to Share! (Last Post of 3 today)

Hello friends! Sorry to be throwing so many posts out to you at once, but as you can see there are so many exciting things going on the first of the month and I’m happy to be sharing it with you!

I’m excited to finally announe that I’ve been asked to be a guest designer with the folks over at Sparkle N Sprinkle for the next 3 months!!  How cool is that?!  I absolutely LOVE to do a little sparkling and sprinkling so this fits right in with my creating! 🙂  I hope you will enjoy seeing my creations with these products!

I also will be posting my creations on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog too…so be sure to check out all Sparkle N Sprinkle inspiration from the design team over there as well!  (We will be showing creations made with the new release each month!!)   I’m starting out my first creation using some of the latest digital images released at the beginning of October.

I have come up with an easel card design that 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 too!)

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 fussy cut them out. (I didn’t have a circle die large enough to accomodate my wreath image.)  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 know that Demo Donna has created a tutorial from one of the past video card kits if you want to learn more – check it out HERE and subscribe to their channel…you’ll love it!)

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.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my interactive card today and I look forward to sharing many more projects with you during my guest design spot for Sparkle N Sprinkle!
