Discover Beauty

This is my card today on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog
using the gorgeous stamp set 

I had a lot of fun with this card.
I used the new Nuvo Shimmer Powders in the colors of
You basically mist your paper with water
(I used watercolor paper)
then lightly and I mean lightly tap the colors on
until you are satisfied with the results.
You can add more water if needed/wanted.
Set it aside to dry of heat dry it.

Once it was dry I used my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform,
and White Detail  embossing powder and stamped onto
my finished Shimmer piece. 
Then I die cut it with Tutti Designs Stitched Scalloped Circles Die.

I wanted to add a bit of sparkle (or a lot of sparkle_
so I die cut a larger 
Tutti Designs Stitched Scalloped Circles Die
and using a Nuvo Glue Pen Large, I ran it around the out edge of the circle.
Then Sprinkled with  Lator Gator glitter.
This was then added to the bottom panel of my stamped shimmer image.

Wanting even more sparkle, I coated the front side of an embossing folder folder
with  Versamark, added my white card stock and ran it thru my Big Shot,
then embossed it with Tequila Sunrise embossing powder.

Using Tonic 12” Guillotine cutter (I LOVE this thing)
I trimmed it to fit my card front.

Once again using Versamark, I embossed the sentiment using Flashy Flamingo.
(don't you just love the names)
