sweet thing {sparkle n sprinkle}

hello sparkly friends!

 this is my first post for 2014 and i'm very excited that it is a sparkly one!  

i created this layout with SPARKLE N SPRINKLE's newest release - 


as usual i started with a white cardstock and i coloured its middle part with DECOART dazzling metallics "OYSTER PEARL". then i applied modelling paste, using PRIMA marketing STARS masking template.

after the modelling paste was dry, i splashed a bit of pink MEMORIES MISTS to give extra color to my background.

  i punched the two large doilies from patter paper {K & COMPANY} with MARTA STEWART circle doily punches and embellished them with RANGER INK liquid pearls "white opal".

 to create the cute sparkly dresses i stamped them on a white cardstock using the SNS #525 dress up stamp set and STAZON jet black ink pad. then i scanned the images and enlarged them with 50% to fit better in my design.

i printed, fussy cut and outlined the enlarged images using SAKURA glue pen and fiery brown embossing powder. after the embossing powder has cooled down, i colored the dresses with a pale yellow COPIC CIAO and filled in the dots and flowers with glue {SAKURA glue pen}. i heat embossed the dress decorations with cotton candy embossing powder.

then i outlined the circles and the flowers on the dresses, filled in the leaves and the bow with glue and sprinkled orchid rose velvet glitter on them.

to finish off my design i added diamond dust glitter to the bottom of the dress. 

i adhered the dresses with 3d foam squares.

to embellish my layout, i fussy cut different elements from the pattern paper and arranged them around tmy design.

then i stamped the sentiments from the SNS #525 dress up stamp set on a white cardstock with VERSAMARK ink pad and heat embossed them with fiery brown embossing powder. i design them as banners, distressed the edges with TEA DYE distress ink and adhered them to my layout.

 the cute chipboard dress form is from BLUE FERN STUDIOS "sweetheart dressform" and it is available at the SPARKLE N SPRINKLE shop. i heat embossed the chipboard with a mixture of cotton candy and princess rose embossing powders and fiery brown EP. for the sparkly details i used SAKURA glue pen and carnation glitter.

here is a complete list with all the products you can find in the SPARKLE N SPRINKLE online shop:

have a fabulous weekend!

hugs 'n smiles,

Yikes! How did I miss commenting on your blog? You KNOW I love your design, and the pretty ways you have colored the dress form. Gosh, Emmy - I DO remember writing a comment now - because of the dress form - I wonder where it went? I am especially impressed with the textures on each star! WOW. The layers of round punching look fabulous with those designer papers! It's a beautiful LO, but I am smitten with the darling little fairy looking in the mirror. Thanks for a great LO and wonderful write up! hugs, de
