SPARKLE 'n SPRINKLE december release party

hello crafty friends!

welcome to SPARKLE N SPRINKLE's december 1st reveal with FIVE chances to win amazing prizes {at the end of this post}!!! 

this month we are bringing you a pretty new stamp set by artist BECCY MUIR and here is a bit of inspiration from me - 


i used the newest SPARKLE N SPRINKLE stamp set #519 GERANIUMS:

here are some close ups of my project with a detailed product information.

for my silver frame i used white cardstock, HEARTFELT CREATIONS decorative oval window die and SPARKLE N SPRINKLE 2 1/2" double sided tear-ific tape.

i glued the tape onto the cardstock and ran it through my machine. 

then i removed the protective tape layer from the die cut and sprinkled sonic silver velvet glitter [GM2002] on top of it.

i stamped the geraniums two times on white cardstock. i coloured the first image with COPIC CIAO markers and added orchid rose velvet glitter [CM2016] to some of the blossoms. then i decorated the leaves with sage embossing powder [EP351].

i fussy cut the large flowers from the second image and coloured them with princess rose embossing powder [EP387]. i used sakura glue pen to adhere the embossing powder. to finish off my geraniums i added a pink pearl in the middle.

i hope you enjoyed my creations today!
