Party time


Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Fall Inspiration Blog Hop!  For my first card, I used Dani's Garden Swing rubber stamp set #393.  This is such a relaxing set of stamps to "play" with!  I used lots of Sunset glitter #G1040 and some Embers glitter #G1034 on this card.  For my second card I used rubber stamp set #348P4 -- Birds.  I colored the bird with Prismacolor pencils blended with Gamsol.  I used an embossing folder for the back ground and covered all of the fall leaves with Sunset glitter, #G1040 and then used Bon Fire embossing powder #EP399 on the berries.  When I spot cover like this with embossing powder, I first apply glue and then sprinkle on the embossing powder and heat seat with the heat gun.  It will work the same was as glitter!   I hope all of you enjoy the blog hop and try to win a prize!
