Hello friends! Have you checked out all of the December New Release yet for Sparkle N Sprinkle?! Do you have a favorite? I’m not sure I can pick one! I think they’re all fabulous really! But I’m excited to start with this cute one for today:
Tee hee! Kitty got a little “carried away” with celebrating I think! I have used the NEW Kitty Celebrates rubber stamp set [00-926P5] for my card. (There is also a wonderful digital set [DIGI926CS] if you prefer that!) I’ve stamped him over Copic Blending Card paper and colored him in with Copic markers and then fussy cut him out.
So before attaching him to my card, I thought it would be fun to add some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew (Gloss-dries clear) [677N] and apply a layer over my balloons to give them a shinny balloon look! I then set kitty aside while I worked on the rest of the card.
For the background of my card, I made a nice “blue sky” by taking some Sparkle N Sprinkle Watercolor Paper [WC69] and sprinkling some Nuvo Blue Blitz Shimmer Powder [1208N] over it and then spritzing some water over it and letting it run all over the panel until I achieved the look I was going for. (LOVE the subtle shimmer over it too!) and then set it aside to let it dry.
The next thing for me to do was to create some “fluffly clouds” for the kitty to be among:
So I took some cloud dies from my stash and cut them out with some Sparkle N Sprinkle Sticker Paper .
These sheets are sticky on one side, so I carefully peeled the release paper and handled them with some tweezers and applied some of the Sparkle N Soft Twinkling Clouds Flocking [FL207] over top of the sticky side, rubbed them with my finger to secure and tapped off the excess. I now have some really cool soft and fuzzy clouds to attach to my blue sky!
So now all I have left to do is assemble everything for my card! I started by taking the clouds and adhering them to my background with some Sparkle N Sprinkle dimensional Glue. I then cut down the watercolor blue sky panel with a rectangle stitched die that fit the size of my card. Then I needed to add my sentiment, so I took the sentiment from the same stamp set and stamped it with a black pigment ink and added some Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkle EP [EP107] and heat embossed it. (This is a clear style embossing powder that leaves a nice little sparkle over it!) I layered this die cut sky panel over a piece of black cardstock which was then layered over an A2 sized top folding white card base. Lastly, I’ve added the fussy cut kitty over top of the sky background panel with some foam dots and then randomly added some drops with the Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops [758N] over the sky panel.
I think this turned out really cute and I sure had fun making it! Here I’ve laid it down so the light catches the details of the sparkle in the clouds, the sentiment and the glitter drops in the background as well as the shine over the ballons too!
Hope you’ve enjoyed my card for you today! Thanks for dropping in!
