A sparkly card

I've managed (I think!) to fit this into 6 challenges, never managed that many before! It's for Sketch Saturday (following the sketch obviously), C.R.A.F.T. (embossing) first time I've entered this challenge, Passion For Promarkers (Girly & Glittery) hopefully this is girly enough, A Spoonful of Sugar (distressing), Pile It On (anything round - circles, spots, dots) first time entering this one too and hopefully my dotty embossing and flower centres will do, and my last one is Secret Crafter (flights of fancy - wings). Phew, that's quite a list lol!

I've used a digi-stamp from Soft Pencil, isn't it cute? It's the first one I've used from Soft Pencil but I'm sure I'll be back for more. The pictures aren't fantastic but it's a very dull day and I had to use the flash, so it's reflecting off of all the glitter & the sentiment hardly shows at all - it says 'A Special Wish...' (from Little Claire Designs) and it's stamped in pink. Shows up fine in 'real life' but not in the pics.




Materials/ Tools used
  • Digi-stamp from Soft Pencil, coloured with promarkers and with some glamour dust and sakura clear glitter pen added
  • The backing paper is one I've had for ages & I'm not sure of the make, coredinations cardstock
  • Worn Lipstick distress ink used on all the edges
  • Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder
  • X-cut flower punches, craftwork cards card candy dots, flowers edged with distress ink & sprinkled with glamour dust

This is lovely Lisa. At least your glitter shows up! I took a photo this afternoon and there is no trace of glitter on mine. I went out with the dogs and there are puddles where there never usually are puddles so no surprise piccy is not good. Thanks for commenting on it tho. By the way I have a Janome mini which I got for £19.99 plus p&p on ebay and I think it did come from a sewing machine shop. I can check the name of the seller if you want.

Hi Lisa, I checked out that name and it was sewit4u. I don't see them listing just now but they may be out of stock. If you just check out buy it now sewing machines and Janome you would probably find some. Apparently the shop price is £45! You might still get a bargain if you're not in a hurry for a machine.

Love the colours and the digi stamp is so cute.

There are so many about now and you have done a great job with this one. I've had a look at that site and been tempted but held off buying any. Have you had a look at Dustin Pike's blog? He's got some nice ones and does loads of freebies too.
