Sparkle N Sparkle Sand Dune Silhouettes ~ SAVE 10% NOW!!

Hi Sparkle Friends,

Today I have a fun project to share. I am using two of Sparkle N Sprinkle's May's Stamp sets together to create these adorable little turtles....

See below for the video showing how I made these adorable little guys!

When I began working with the two stamp sets I noticed how perfectly the silhouette mini turtle stamp from the Sand Dunes Silhouettes Stamp Set #940 coordinated with the mini detailed turtle stamp in the Nature of the Beach Stamp Set #929. The two sets also have the small star fish which also coordinate together.

LDRS Creative ~ On The Move Neighborhood

Welcome back friends,

Before I share my post today I would like to take a moment to wish all of the mothers out there a wonderful Mother's Day. Without all of you there would be none of us. A mother is the best gift a person can have and I thank God for my mother each and every day.

Today to have a fun little card featuring LDRS Creative's amazing Hybrid Inks along with our "Homemade Happiness 6x6" Papers" and this adorable stamp set called "On The Move Neighborhood"

When creating I always choose my papers before beginning to stamp and color. In this project I decided to use the Homemade Happiness 6x6" paper stack, choosing two coordinating papers. Next I stamped my stamps using LDRS Hybrid Ink in Raven. Then I completed the coloring using Copic alcohol markers. 

For the grassy hill I used LDRS Hybrid inks in Four Leaf Green and Key Lime Green. It is so nice the way our Hybrid inks blend so smoothly. Here is another look.

I hope I have inspired you to enjoy your crafty items even more today. Make sure to check out all our new products in our ONLINE STORE? Simply click HERE!

Sparkle N Sprinkle ~ Nature of the Beach ~ 10% SAVINGS for everyone!

Hi Sparkle friends...
I have a really fun project to share with you today. This stamp set is called "Nature of the Beach" and is one of Sparkle N Sprinkle's newest stamp sets just released in May.
SNS Products Used:
Nature of the Beach Stamp Set #929

Steps to creating my card:
The first thing I did was cut a piece of Sparkle N Sprinkle Sticker Paper to cover the bottom of the card. I burnished in The Beach Opaque Glitter G1111and then sprinkled on the Super Thick Gold Opaque Embossing Powder EP235 and heated from underneath to give extra texture and shimmer. here is a close up pic.

You can also see the sun in the above photo. That was created using a 1 1/2" punch with sticker paper cut in half. I burnished it with Cherry Lemonade Semi Trans Glitter G1118 and glued it in place.
The top portion of the card was colored using the Nuvo Aqua Flow True Turquoise Pen. The sentiment is heat embossed using our Gold Opaque Embossing Powder EP169.
For the large stamped images I have colored each of them in Copic markers and then have added Cherry Lemonade Semi Trans Glitter to the large shell using the Nuvo Precision Glue Pen. The Star Fish was colored and then Mediterranean Tuscany Opaque Embossing Powder EP 417 was added (using a stamp positioner for exact stamping. Then I simply added  Clear Transparent Embossing Powder EP120 to the oblong shell and the sea turtle. Here are a couple of close up shots showing how these turned out.


I just love the way this project turned out. So much texture and real life effects.
