Nuvo Glitter Paste - 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store

Happy Hello!!! I have a gorgeous card to share today for 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. I have been doing a little playing with the Nuvo glitter paste - it is so stunning in person! It's really hard to capture it on camera but I did my best.

I started off by stamping my flower from Concord & 9th stamp You Are Here. I colored it with my copics markers and cut it out with my Scan N Cut machine. This flower would look stunning in any color! 

Next I started on my background. I adhered a striped stencil down to my cardstock with some painters tape so it doesn't slide out of place. Using a small spatula I started to spread a layer of the Nuvo Glitter paste onto my project. Once I was satisfied with the amount of glitter paste on my project, I removed the stencil and quickly washed off my spatula and stencil. Don't let it sit because the glitter  will stick to the stencil. 

I let the background sit for a few hours (actually 5 hours by the time I was able to get back to it lol) ... and started to put my project together.  My base is 5" x 5" so I trimmed the stencil piece down to 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" so there was a little border of white. I love how this glitter paste looks on the dark cardstock. It's almost iridescent! In the picture above, you can actually see the blue. I stamped my sentiment on a small strip of white cardstock, lined everything up and adhered together.

I have a fun card share video of this to give more of an idea of how the card looks and the products used. Enjoy!

Krafty Komeback - Let Them Eat Cupcakes!

It's time for a Krafty Komeback!!!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps has decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of your faves in CLEAR! And today there's a new one! You all have been loving these, so here we go again!

This super sassy stamp set features TWO fun images from our original A Bit Smart Assy stamp set!

Seriously - aren't these just awesome!?

It's also Frugal Friday and we've got FOUR of our fabulous sets on SALE 40% OFF! But only for the weekend and only while supplies last! So be sure to check them out and make the most of that shipping!

On to my project!! I am just loving this set !! It's one of those sets that is just super fun to have in your stash and I bet someone would love to get a card with any of these sentiments - would bring a bright smile to their face I bet! 

I colored up my image with my copic markers and cut it out with my Scan N Cut. Then I just layered up some cardstock and cupcake paper (too perfect!) and attached my image with foam squares. I also added a few Nuvo Crystal drops because y'all know I love my Nuvo drops. Now head over and grab this set!

Bookmarks - The Greeting Farm

Happy Hello and Good Morning! I almost forgot to share these! My daughter and her friend asked for a new bookmark  (before school ended) so I created these fun ones! They were really quick to put together. I laminated both of them so they didn't get ruined from wear and tear.

Unfortunately, these were last minute creations so I do not have a complete supply list for you.

The background I created with my distress inks. My images I colored up with my copics and cut out with the Scan n Cut to add to the bookmark before laminating them. I used A Lil' Magic stamp set and Little Fairies stamp both from The Greeting Farm.

Thanks so much and Happy Monday!
