AAA Cards #105 Sparkle

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great December so far :) It is crazy how fast this year is going. And speaking of, it is time for another challenge at AAA Cards and it is all about sparkle.

I took a break from Christmas cards for a minute and made a couple of birthday cards for my daughters. Their birthday is just before Christmas and I wanted to make sure that I had cards for them that were girly and sparkly just like them.

I stamped the princess and sentiment from Newton's Nook Once Upon a Princes set and colored her with copics. Then I added sparkle with a clear spectrum noir sparkle pen and a few sequins. The sparkle really doesn't come through in the pictures but her dress and crown are covered with it. I trimmed the panel down and added it to colored cardstock to match her dress.

Their favorite colors are pink and purple (definitely girly!) so I had to make one in each color. They are going to be four and love dressing up in princess costumes. They happened to wander in while I was making them so I know they love them already.

Our sponsor is HLS and they are offering a $20 GC to the winner. Hope you can play along :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Snowman

Hello. It is hard to believe it is already December! Have you finished all of your Christmas cards yet? Have you started? I have several but I need to pick a design to make a bunch of because I don't have near enough :) Makes it a great reason to join Sparkles Christmas challenges' last theme of the year, Snowmen. Here is my take on it.

This stamp set from Hero Arts (Holiday Cheer) is so cute. I love the little details in it like the footsteps going up to the house and the uneven letters in the sentiment. I stamped out the scene and then colored it with my zig clean color markers. I added details with a white gel pen to different areas of the house where I thought snow might stick and then used my white Nuvo drops on the snowman's hat (its hard to see in the picture but adds a little dimension in real life). 

I hope you get a chance to join us and if you do, check out the rest of the super talented design team. They have some adorable cards! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I am also sharing this card at:

Thanks so much for taking a look.
