Simon Says.........Make It Sparkle!!


It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is to Make it Sparkle!  And the design team are using products from Neat & Tangled or Jane's Doodles.  If you have any of their stamps, we'd love to see you using them, but it's not necessary to enter, as long as you make it sparkle in some way.  I chose some Jane's Doodles stamps and made 2 cards today.

This one uses Jane's Mother's Flowers.  I chose the smaller elements in the set and made a little summer wreath, using Hero Arts inks Green Hills, Bubble Gum, Butter Bar, Orange Soda, and Soft Canteloupe.  For my sparkle, I added some Hero Arts Prisma glitter to the centers of my flowers with a Quickie glue pen.  Here's a closer shot to hopefully show you that detail:

My next card uses Jane's Raindrops set.

I stamped the cute herringbone-pattern cloud in pale grey and sky blue, and for my sparkle, I embossed the raindrops in Ranger silver embossing powder, and also added some pale blue rhinestones.  My sun is a Hero Arts die-cut.  Hopefully you can see the silver embossing better in this picure:
