Feeling Young at Heart with Sparkle N Sprinkle :)

Hello friends!  Stopping in to share another guest design creation that I’ve made using some of the Sparkle N Sprinkle November release products!  Have you found a favorite yet? I really enjoyed creating with them!   Here’s another I’ve made using the very sweet digital set Doctor at Heart [DIGI3152J] :


Isn’t this image darling?!  My first thought on this set was to try and go a little “vintage” with my design.  I opened up a Word doc. to insert the image and sentiment and sized and arranged it how I wanted it to look.  I printed it out on some cream colored card stock and then cut it out with the Tonic Studios Follow Your Heart die [1918E] using the frame portion only.  (This die was from a past video kit that I had received…love it!)

I wasn’t sure I wanted the image to look “vintage” so in asking hubby, he told me that I needed to color him up with blue shorts, brown/tan shoes, orange top and blond hair!  He was very specific about that!! LOL!  So I colored this cute image up with my Copic markers and gave some “outlining” shadows around the sentiment too.  I took a gel Stardust Pen and colored in the ‘metal parts’ of the stethoscope and then added some Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew (Gloss-clear) [677N] to the heart circle the boy is holding and let it dry.  I then used some distress inks and sponged around the edges of the heart image panel and spritzed it with water, waited a few seconds and dabbed it up with a paper towel.  I love the watermark look it gives to add that vintage flair and tie it all in together.


So when you tilt the card, you notice that the background looks like I’ve used some special glitter paper, but I did NOT!  I made my own glitter paper for the background!  I took another piece of black cardstock and covered the entire panel with VersaMark Ink [VM001] and sprinkled it with some Sparkle N Sprinkle Black Magic embossing powder [EP255]..stunning sparkle!


For the look on the ribbon, I took some cream colored seam binding ribbon and sprayed it with some water and rubbed it in some ink that I smeared onto my TH Glass Media Mat [1914E] and crinkled it up and then let it dry.  I wrapped it around the embossed glitter background panel and added a bow with a button and natural twine for the center of it.  I mounted this glitter panel onto a 5 1/2″ sqaure cream colored card base that I’ve ink blended around the edges in the same colors that I’ve used on the heart.  The heart image panel was then popped up over the ribbon strip and glitter background with craft foam and then the seam binding bow was attached along the edge of the heart.


For the corners of my card, I had a very old corner punch that I punched out from black card stock and attatched them to the corners of the card.  I then used the  Nuvo Crystal Drops Ripened Pumpkin [655N] to add some “dot” in the middle of each punched corner piece to finish it off.  I think that the tiny bit of orange color ties in nicely with the glitter background and his orange shirt.

I really hope that you’ve enjoyed my fun ‘vintage charm’ creation as well!  Thanks so much for stopping in today and I’ll see you soon!

  4. Oh, Vicki, what an awesome card!!! Your hubby gave good advice on how to color the little doctor-to-be. The coloring is perfect, but I expect nothing else from such a skilled artist! LOL. I love how you created the background for the card as well as the seam binding! Love the embossing powder! Great piece of artwork!
