I Love All Things Sparkly! (and sprinkly too!)



As I announced a few weeks ago, I am the August Guest Designer for Sparkle N Sprinkle.  If you have never been to their website or blog, you MUST go!  There are videos and samples, tips and tricks! They have the most wonderful colors and textures for Embossing Powders and Glitters (sparkly and sprinkly!) and their stamps are such high quality and deeply etched.  There are designs to please everyone!


For my card today I used one of the new SNS sets: Ocean Treasures. This dreamy ocean set has wonderful sentiments and some beautiful artwork. The circle sentiment says "Ocean treasures left on the shore, Nature's gift to adore." The sand dollar is stamped twice and popped up.

I stamped the image in VersaMark ink, then embossed with Ocean Spark Embossing Powder, also available at Sparkle N Sprinkle. It has a beautiful glittery sheen, which doesn't show up in the photo. I colored my image with Copics.

Check out the SNS Blog today to see this card and some super fun games and challenges to play!

After growing up within earshot of the sea, I always love sea/beach themed cards. The colours in this are so gorgeous, they make me feel I could almost smell the salt air.

It's a wonderful card! I'm ready to go on a beach vacation NOW despite the heat! LOL It's wonderful the way all your magnificent elements capture the essence of a day at the sea.
