Calla Lily

This is my featured card at the 
Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today 
using the newly released Calla Lillie's stamp set.

This was a pretty easy card to make, though it has lots of pretty details.
I started by stamping the Calla Lillies, coloring with Copics,
then cutting out with Spellbinders Devine Elegance die.
I then used Nuvo  Crystal Glaze on each flower giving it a
beautiful glazed look.
Once completely dry (it dries fast),
I placed it on a piece of SNS Sticker Paper then trimmed around the outer edge.

Gecko glitter was then added to the open sticky areas using my 'finger tool'.
I used the SNS Glitter Brush to brush off all excess glitter.
The entire piece was then adhered to a pink card stock base.
Little dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops Bubblegum Blush were then added
in various/random places around the lillies.

I stamped the sentiment with Versmark, 
then embossed with Turnip Marbled embossing powder.
I then punched the sentiment out and used a second 
slightly larger punched circle to go under.
the finishing touch was a beautiful ribbon bow.

Thanks for taking a look today and be sure to leave a comment both here and on my post on the SNS Blog for a chance to go shopping at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  No one knows who the Mystery Designer is this month (and it might just be me).  There will be new projects on the SNS Blog every day for your inspiration and for increasing your chances of winning.  Good luck!

Hi, Diane! I've got so much catching up to do I could sit here all day. Just look at all I missed while we were camping! Such a beautiful creation with the color, gloss, and sparkle! The glaze makes this look like a ceramic piece. Really love all these cool embossing powders you have. Wow!

Ros Crawford said...

It's beautiful Diane! Love the glossy lilies... I have a stamp like that but never used it... Hope your week is off to a good start .. It's still cold here but lots of lovely greenery around now - Not surprising given all the rain we had!
