I created two cards for this collab. Here is the first one..
I used the Sparkle Borders stamp set from Hero Arts to stamp my background. I coloured in all the "bulbs" with a purple, green, and turquoise marker. Then added some sparkle with a Sakura Stardust Pen. Next, of course, came the Glossy Accents!! While waiting for that to dry I stamped 3 presents from the Birthday Lions stamp set from Studio Katia and coloured them with the same 3 shades. I also added some sparkle pen and Glossy Accents to the bow of the presents. For the embellishments, I used the Crystal Clear Sequins Fusion and some Silver Stars Confetti. ( Just a note on the Silver Stars, this is a discontinued item so it is ON SALE for $1.00!!!!). I then added a drop of Crystal Stickles to the centre of each sequin.
For my next card, I had to go with a shaker!! Now the products I used for this card were made for each other!! I started by stamping out the flamingo from the Layering Flamingo stamp set with May's Shades of Pink ink cubes from HA. I use these A LOT!! They are my "go-to" pinks!! I then die-cut the flamingo with its co-ordinating die.
For the shaker window, I used the Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames Dies from SK to cut the centre of a white cardstock panel. Now here is where it gets really fun!! The sentiment is a combination of stamps from SK. The sweet "wishing you a pink" come from the Pink Winter set (which also features a flamingo) and the rest comes from the Duo Talk set, including the stars and hearts that are stamped! For the goodies inside, I used Fruit Punch, Pink Lemonade Fusion, Pink Winter Mix (minus the snowflakes) and Gold Foil Seed Beads.
I had so much fun making these cards!! I hope you have a chance to play along with this super fun, sparkly challenge!! And I should mention that Studio Katia is giving away a gift certificate to the lucky winner of this challenge!! Good luck and have fun!!!
