Best Wishes

This is my post for the Sparkle N Sprinkle
blog today.

Hi, Diane with you today with a stamp set perfect for March

Products Used:
StampsLucky Charm 776
Glitter:  Shamrock GM2041
Embossing Powder Gold Detail EP168

I have a  quick and easy tutorial showing how easy it is to add
glitter to an intricate die cut.

Using the Ribbon & Bow dies set (this has 12 dies in the set) 
I first cut the intricate die, then a background matching die
by first applying a super adhesive sheet.

This made it super easy to then peel back the paper
and carefully lining up my intricate die,
leaving  the open places 'sticky' to apply my glitter.

I used the Nuvo Craft Spoon to add our new
Shamrock glitter, perfect for the image I used.
This spoon gives you great control to add the glitter
almost exactly where you want it.
I used my 'finger tool' to rub it in.

I stamped the image from stamp set Lucky Charm in Versamark
then embossed with Gold Detail embossing powder.
To get a perfect stamped image I used the
The image was then colored in with Copics.
Using the Sakura Glue Pen on the shamrocks,
I added more of the Shamrock glitter.
I also used the Nuvo Aqua shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen on the horseshoe.
This pen is remarkable and I wish you could really see the sparkle it adds,
let alone how easy it is to apply.

I finished by adding a few shamrock gems from my supplies
and a stamped sentiment using Nuvo Hybrid Ink Metro Grey.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Leslie Miller said...

That's a beautiful stamp and I absolutely LOVE it! I had to go look. Oh, my, so tempting. It has some useful sentiments with it for versatility. Love the embossing and the green glitter on the frame and in the centers of the shamrocks. Those little clover rhinestones are so cute, too! I saw pink clover blooming the other day. They say if a horseshoe faces downward the luck will run out.
