A Little Sparkle

Good evening ..........

I have a few cards to share tonight that I have made using a stamp set and dies from Wplus9.  I have had this set ages and never really used it until now, so thought that whilst it was out I would make a few cards. I struggle to take any decent pictures in our caravan awning so the glitter doesn't show up very well

I was inspired to create these cards by the theme this week at


For this card I created a card base from white card stock, and die cut a frame using die namics stitched frames. I cut a piece of acetate to fit and stuck to the reverse of the frame.
The word sparkle was die cut first from funky foam and then again from Dazzling Diamond glitter card, I used the little bit of foam and glitter card to also cut some stars.
After many attempts I managed to stamp onto my acetate in Stazon black ink, using the word Sparkle as a guide for placement. I then added some foam dimensionals around the frame, added some sequins in a small pile to my card front before placing the frame over them. I added some little stars and gems to the panel

My second card was made by stamping the sentiment with versamark ink onto black cardstock, and heat embossed in white, I then used die namics stitched squares to create to panels, and mounted them onto the card front with dimensionls and added some bling. 

I also heat embossed this sentiment, die cut my panels and popped them up with dimensionals adding some glitter stars and gems.

For this card I die cut the word shine from funky foam and dazzling diamond card, the rest of the sentiment was heat embossed and I added some stars and gems.
