Yesterday I got the stamp sets I was so lucky to win from the new release that Sparkle N Sprinkle has out and so today I made a card using one of the sets. Most of you who follow my blog know I am pretty much a CAS card maker and this is pretty much the case with this one but I did bling it up some with some glitter all over the surface of the card.
I stamped the design with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the image with Copic Markers. Once I had it all colored I die cut it out with a Die-Namics Blueprints set. I stamped the Thanks separately on white card stock and cut it out with one of the dies in that blueprint set. I cut another one out as a layer for the one with the sentiment on it and used some of the Copics to match the card stock. Normally I would have used card stock that matched the card base but I did not have a little snippet to work with so I instead tried to match the Copic ink.
Using a Versamark ink pad I swiped ink all over the front panel and those layers for the Thanks sentiment and added some Sparkle N Sprinkle embossing powder to give a glittery look. Once this was heat set I then assembled the card together. I finished it off then by adding a pearl heart to the sentiment and a pink and white polka dot bow.

I am so thrilled to get the newest sets from the release and I hope to make a card from each of them and post them on my blog.
Over the weekend I did not do any card making but instead got my Christmas tree down and some of the other decorations put away. That always takes some doing and alas, no grandsons to help with the project like when we put the tree up. But Grandpa and I managed to do the job!
