MOMENTS {sparkle n sprinkle}

hello lovelies! 

i've got a brand new SPARKLY project to share with you today – 


i created this layout for one of my favourite companies - SPARKLE N SPRINKLE. their embossing powders and glitters are simply AMAZING!

but on this layout i'm featuring also their new stamps sets, which are ideal for any type of project and work absolutely perfect with all the different types of SNS embossing powders and glitters!

for my background i used stamp set 609 – crackle background with cappuccino opaque embossing powder [EP422]:

and the burst stamp with winter white semi-transparent embossing powder [EP409]. the background paper is from PRIMA marketing JODIE LEE "art journal" paper pad. the pattern papers are from PRIMA marketing FAIRY RHYMES collection.

 to further decorate my page i used stamp set 496 – bird song. i stamped the feathers with VERSAMARK ink and then i heat embossed them with  i used cappuccino opaque embossing powder [EP422].

 for the pink doily i used SNS stamp set 531 – crystal medallion with sangria star embossing powder [EP424].

i added brown pearls and brown lace to finish off my design, the words on the background and some of the embellishments i stamped with brown ink and SNS stamp set 531 – crystal medallion.

 i hope you enjoyed today’s post!

 have a wonderful day!

be happy {merly impressions}

hello lovely friends! 

it is my turn today over at the MERLY IMPRESSIONS' blog and i've got a new project to share with you - 


to create this layout i used the amazing KAISERCRAFT honey chai collection and some die cut embellishments from their wonderful blubelle line.

for my background i used KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock, which i altered with different masks and stamps. i used TIM HOLTZ bubble layering stencil with KAISERCOLOUR paint pistachio

i completed my design using KAISERCRAFT clear stamps “film edges”, “vintage journey”, “blae & ivy” and “kaleidoscope”.

i created the different layers under my picture using HONEY CHAI paper pad and EK SUCCESS double morocco lace edge punch and MARTHA STEWART edge punch. i decorated one of the layers with KAISERCRAFT pearls champagne.

 i used different die cuts from HONEY CHAI collectables pack to embellish my page. i embossed the images slightly and adhered them with mounting foam tape.

i used a stamp from the KALEIDOSCOPE collection clear stamp set to write the sentiment on my tag. as you can see i really love this stamp set!

 and finally i added the paper strips from the BLUBELLE collection.

to finish off my design i added rhinestones split pea and sew easy twine green.

here is a list with some of the products, you can find at MERLY IMPRESSIONS online store:

thank you for stopping by today!

have a fabulous week!

MIXED MEDIA steampunk card {creative embellishments}

hello everybody!

i've got a brand new card leaded with STEAMPUNK chippies {available at CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS'online store} to share with you today. 


to create my card i used a lot of chippies {of course}, GELATOS, embossing powder, stamps, ink, silver journalling pen, embossing folder and a cutting die. 

 i used 10x15cm white card and a layer of shimmering charcoal cardstock as a card base. then i took another piece of white cardstock and i colored it with two different shades of blue GELATOS. i blend them together using water. when the GELATOS have dried, i doodled the silver frame around the edge and finished my design by stamping a pattern with CIRCLES stamp and DISTRESSED CHICKEN WIRE stamp from CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.

to altered my chippies i used black and silver embossing powders. then i began assembling my design. i added embossed silver cardstock behind the window frame {ARCHED WINDOW set of 3 chipboard set}.

 then i created the gear cluster using chipboard (GEARS 1″ and GEARS 1 1/2″) and die cuts. 

here is a list with all products available at CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS'online store:

i hope i managed to inspire you today!

keep calm and create!
