Leave a Little Sparkle!

Oh my goodness! I’m not going to lie! I absolutely LOVE how this card creation turned out. Seriously – it is awesome and it definitely leaves a little sparkle!

Those of you who follow regularly will know I love a little magic, so as soon as I saw this years catalogue I knew that the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set would be the first item added to my shopping basket! Anything mermaid, unicorn or fairy is always on my fave list, so this set was no different.

I knew when I began playing that I wanted a colourful background, and I wanted to compliment the unicorn with the swirls from the Stargazing stamp set. Out came our new Pigment Sprinkles and Shimmery White Cardstock for the background.

Once I started playing with the sprinkles, I found it tricky to get the look I was after, combining all the colours, so I pulled out my offcuts and made individual coloured squares before adhering them all to a background piece and trimming the edges. I then ran it through the bigshot using the Subtle Embossing Folder, before stamping the swirls and embossing them with White Stampin Emboss Powder. Just a tip – you need to make sure your card is completely dry before embossing images!

Once I was happy with the background, I stamped my unicorn in Momento Ink and then coloured it using our Stampin Blends, in colours coordinating with the pigment sprinkles. A ‘little’ fussy cutting later, and my unicorn was ready to ‘colour’ again with the Fine Tip Glue and sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (I LOVE this stuff) for a little extra sparkle!

I hope you love the effect as much as I do!

CTC 180 – Favourite Retiring Project

So it’s been a while as I’m sure you will all be aware, but life has been SUPER busy lately!  But I have jumped on board for CTC 180 – Favourite Retiring Project.

Today was no easy decision at all.  Retiring time always brings mixed feelings of sadness saying goodbye to my favourites and anticipation for all the new goodies.  I honestly couldn’t decide which was my absolute favourite for today’s challenge, so I combined a few favourites to create my project today.

 

I think if I was honest, my absolute favourite retiring item would have to be my Large Number Framelits.  I’m not entirely sure what I am going to do without those….who am I kidding, they haven’t even moved out of my ‘current’ framelits basket to my retired but keeping’ basket yet, so I will continue to use them for a LONG time yet!!!  I truly believe they are a MUST HAVE item!

My other favourites are the Rainbow Builder Framelits and the Myths and Magic Bundle – so I added them all to this project that I created for my niece!
