I’ve gone all sparkly today! Well…. it is getting pretty close to the ‘Sparkly Season’ isn’t it?

I couldn’t resist making a card full of glitter and sparkle because the theme for this months challenge in the Visible Image FaceBook Group is ‘Make it Sparkle’.  We love you to share the gorgeous things you make with your Visible Image stamps with us in that group, and there is great prize for the winner. So, if you haven’t requested to join that group yet…..what are you waiting for? Head over and join in with us.

I have 2 versions of this card to show you, one where the angel is black and one where the angel is white. I’d love to know which one you like the best.

This is a 6 second video showing the sparkles:

Here’s the details for this card …

Texture comes from the card stock that I used: Hopsack card for the base and linen for the angel.

Techniques used:

  • The double Glitter Technique
  • Ink Blending
  • Heat Embossing

Stamps and Stencil Used:

A step-by-step for this card

Die cut a circle in a piece of A5 hopsack card and blend distress inks from the lightest around the circle to the darkest at the outside edges.

Let this completely dry then heat emboss the Angel word in white embossing powder.

Stamp the circles from ‘You Are Not Alone’ in Picket Fence, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire distress inks.

Die cut some double sided adhesive sheet with the same large circle die. Remove one side of the backing and centre the ‘Strobes’ stencil onto it. Take the blue glitter and pour some onto the stencil and work it into the adhesive with your fingers. Remove the stencil and add the white glitter to the adhesive sheet in the same way.

Die cut a small circle into the centre of the adhesive sheet – small enough to be hidden behind the angel, but large enough to take some foam squares.

Stick the ombre background onto a card blank and then remove the other part of the double sided adhesive sheet and adhere that into the opening.

Heat emboss the angel image onto linen card stock with a sparkly black embossing powder and fussy cut it out. Stick 3d foam pads to the back so that they stick to the card and not the glitter.

Here is an alternative version with the angel in white..
