Wisteria Circle

Hello there! I am really excited to share my project with you today. My card features the brand new Wisteria Circle stamp from Stampendous. I love this stamp, and all imagery of wisteria. I have thriving wisteria plant at the front of my house, and it makes me smile whenever I look at it, especially when it is in bloom. It's just a lovely plant. So this week, the Stampendous team and I are featuring this stamp, as well as the new Tree Circle stamp, which I'll be sharing later in the week.  I tried to make my stamped image look like cloisonne, which is beautiful metal and enamel work. My full instructions are below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
W202: Wisteria Circle
SSC1281: Greetings Galore
DP102: Detail Gold Embossing Powder

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Sky, Winter Lake, Wildflower
Imagine: VersaMark Ink
Artist's Loft: Watercolor Paper, Watercolors
Scrapbook Adhesives: E-Z Runner


Directions:
1. On a piece of watercolor paper, stamp the Wisteria Circle with VersaMark Ink.

2. Sprinkle the stamped image with Detail Gold embossing powder and heat set.

3. Watercolor the embossed image. I used shades of purples, blues and greens, plus 1 brown for mine.

4. After the watercolored image is dried, cut it out.

5. Create the card base out of Sky cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

6. Create a mat using Wildflower cardstock, cut to 3 3/4" x 4 3/4."

7. Cut a strip of Winter Lake to the size of 4 1/4" x 1."

8. Stamp a sentiment from the Greetings Galore set with VersaMark ink on to the strip of Winter Lake.

9. Sprinkle Detail Gold Embossing Powder on to the sentiment and heat set.

10. Tear the bottom of the sentiment strip for texture.

11. Glue all layers to the card base.

I think the Wisteria stamp is my favorite of the 2. This is yet another completely different look. Soft & pretty.

Your wisteria looks just like cloisonné! It is beautiful. Don't have wisteria in my yard, but there are some vines in the neighborhood so get to see it-- so lovely.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…
