To get your MOJO going in the “crafty” New Year, we’ve started up a brand new challenge over at the Sprakle N Sprinkle Challenge Blog for the month of January as well as a brand new monthly challenge over on our Sparkle N Sprinkle Facebook Challenge Group!  We love seeing what you are creating, so we do hope that you will be joining along in the fun with us this month!  Be sure to click on the badge above to see the inspiration from the design team!

I’m also VERY excited to report that Sparkle N Sprinkle has asked me to join their permanent creative design team!  So I hope you’ll look forward to seeing more projects this year from me using their products!! – I’m already excited about what I’ve been making recently to share with you soon!

So… to be festive and join in on the celebration everywhere, I’ve decided to make a special card just for the occasion!  🙂

I’ve used this really fun digital stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Max [DIGI566]  and I have used my Prisma Color pencils to color him in with over some Canson Mi-Teintes Pastel paper.  I cut him out with a circle die and then ran some glue around the edges with a Nuvo Medium Tip Glue Pen [203N] and sprinkled some Copper Jewel Glitter [G1059] over it.  I mounted another circle behind it that I’ve cut out with some  Tonic Burnished Rose Mirror Cardstock [9488E] .

For the background of my card, I’ve used some Sparkle N Sprinkle Super Adhesvie Sheets [SAS02] that I’ve cut out in different sized circles and then added some of the same glitter that I’ve used for around the frog image panel.  I cut a few more circles out with the same mirror cardstock as well.

Bfore attaching the circles, I’ve heat embossed the sentiment over the A2 sized top folding black card base with some Sparkle N Sprinkle  Bronze Rose embossing powder [EP335],which I thinks matches up beautifully with that mirror cardstock!  Right underneath the embossed sentiment, I added some SNS 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape [SAT16]  and sprinkled on some more of that pretty glitter that I’ve used all over this card.  Then I added all the circles in the background including the frog image panel and cut off the circle part sticking over the edge on the right side.

Taking a closer look at the “party Max frog”, you can see better how he’s colored in and a few other details that I’ve added to him.  For the olive shine, I’ve used some Nuvo Morning Dew Crystals Drops [677N] and for the “liquid” glass he’s sitting in, I’ve taken the Nuvo Medium Tip Glue Pen [203N] and sprinkled some Waterscape glitter [G1108] over it.  I’ve also used the Nuvo Gold Coast Glitter Drops [770N] to add a bit of sparkle around Max’s head.  (I’m assuming that it’s a bit of “campagne pops” from the glass!  Tee Hee!)
