Get your sparkle on… PbD05

This week’s Ink It Pink Challenge is all about SPARKLE

You can use whatever form of sparkle or bling that you choose…. metallic paper, Viva Decor, rhinestones, glitter and the list goes on.

I chose to use Glitter Ritz, my favorite glitter as my sparkle.

I started by stamping , Pink By Design’s Cloudy Day Background stamp in Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink.

I then cut out some clouds in different sizes in white and dark blue, using the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. I then stamped my sentiment with Pink By Design’s Simply Everything.

I pulled out my Martha Stewart Balloon punch and punched a bunch of balloons out of Sookwang Be Creative Tape.

Then punched out matching cardstock to the color of glitter that I chose to use and stuck the tape to the cardstock.

I pulled off the paper backing and glittered away using several different colors of Glitter Ritz and let me tell you…I got glitter everywhere….even on my face.. lol.

Here is a close-up picture of the balloons… I used small punches for the heart and star and attached them Glossy Accents.

I added  some Pink By Design Divine Twine in Black Licorice to tie the balloons together.

For the inside of the card I used the clouds that I cut out earlier and used the Pink By Design October’s Stamp of the Month – Friends to the End in Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.

You should head over to Pink By Design’s Blog and take a look at what everyone has been up to. Hope your day is full of sparkle and bling.

Hoppy Easter

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter and show you a card I made recently.

I used orange, green and brown Bazzill Cardstock for the base and the layers of this card. I stamped the Bunny in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on White Recollections Cardstock and used my Copics to color it, then cut it out using my Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large

I just love this cute little set of stamps from Hot off the Press called Hoppy Easter. I used the mini carrot stamp and made my own background paper. First I stamped the carrot in some Memento Bamboo Leaves Ink and then colored them in with one of my Copics. I just love how it turned out, I will have to try this with some of my other small stamps.

For the Carrot I used the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge cut out at 3″, along with the shadow layer. The carrot is my favorite piece of the card…. I just love it. The sentiment comes from Pink By Design’s Hoppy Easter stamp set….. isn’t just perfect. I gave the carrot some dimension by adding some popdots.

For the inside of the card I stamped some more carrots and rounded the corners with my corner punch. The sentiment also comes from Pink By Design’s Hoppy Easter stamp set.

Wishing you a Hoppy Day

Hope everyone has a great Easter with Family and Friends.
