Sparkle N Sprinkle New Release – Kitty Celebrates Up in the Air!

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:

Vicki-SnS-Kitty clouds

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.

Vicki-SnS Kitty Celebrates-Nuvo Drops

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 [99558].

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!

Merry & Bright Kitty

Hello friends!  Hope you’re having a great weekend so far!  I’m back to share another Sparkle N Sprinkle creation that I’ve made using the adorable Christmas Kitty Digital Stamp Set [DIGI921CS] from the October Release:

Vicki-SnS-ChristmasKitty-OctGDT

I wanted this kitty to be the main focus of my card along with the lights and I wanted them to pop out on my design.  I also wanted to add my panel complete with the “extra” light string and greeting.  So I opened up a blank Word doc. to add my images.  I sized and arranged the kitty where I wanted him, then next to him I’ve added the additional “extra” lights and then positioned my greeting from the set where I wanted it, printed it out and colored in the lights and kitty with Copic markers.  To make the lights appear as one continuous string of lights, I took an alcohol friendly fine line marker to draw a line to the existing lights on the kitty.  I just love the look on his face as he was so much fun to color! 🙂

Vicki-SnS-ChristmasKitty-OctGDT1

To get the glowing look on the lights, I added some color around each light with the same color of chalk.  Then I took the Diamond Dust Glitter and added it over the light bulbs with the Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue pen.

I then cut this panel out with a rectangle cross stitch die cut from my stash.  After it was cut, I took some blue colored ink and stamped the pine cone image from the Holiday Greetings Rubber stamp set  to frame in the kitty panel.

I decided to cut out some pine leaves with the same light blue card stock with a die cut from my stash and then I covered them with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with the Vanilla Ice embossing powder.  You will also notice a bit of sparkle around the kitty panel edge too.  I took the panel and pressed the edges into the VersaMark ink pad and then heat embossed the edges with the Sparkle embossing powder.

Vicki-SnS-ChristmasKitty-OctGDT2

Here you can see the design on my light blue card front as well.  This is where I took the same pine cone rubber stamp image and stamped randomly along the edges of the card front and heat embossed it with the Vanilla Ice embossing powder.  The heat embossed pine cone leaves were attached to the edge of the kitty panel along with a sparkly ribbon bow and a snowflake accent.  I layered a piece of black cardstock around the image panel and popped it up with some craft foam and mounted that over the front of the heat embossed light blue card front which was wrapped with some more of the sparkly ribbon.  This was mounted over an A2 sized top folding white card base.
