Paper Hugs - Earth Sparkles

Hi Crafty Friends!  I am so happy to be back with you today to share some awesome products from WOW!!!!!  In today's card I am sharing the adorable stamp set Paper Hugs!  Check out the adorable envelope stamp!  Isn't it the cutest!  I couldn't wait to ink this up!  I wanted to create a sparkly background for these cute envelopes and used WOW Earth Sparkles in the color Sargassum!  So let's get started!  

I started by stamping the envelope stamp from the Paper Hugs stamp set onto Bristol card stock.  I stamped the image using Versafine Ink in Nocturne and then heat embossed the image using Clear Matte Embossing Powder.  I then colored each of the envelopes using a rainbow of colors using my Zig markers.  I used 2 colors on each envelope. I started with a lighter shade and then went in once dry with a darker shade of each color.  Once it was dry, I then trimmed each envelope using my scissors.  I then set them aside to begin my background.  

To create the background I started with a piece of white card stock.  I trimmed my paper for a slimline card.  I placed the Lotsahearts stencil onto my Make Art station.  I wanted to add lots of shine to the background.  I chose to use the WOW Earth Sparkles in the color Sargassum.  These sparkles were so fun to use and they added so much shine!  Did you know these sparkles are a biodegradable glitter?  How awesome is this!  To add the Earth Sparkles to the stencil I applied them with a clear texture paste.  I placed some paste onto my work surface and added the sparkles.  I then used a pallet knife to apply the paste to the stencil.  Once it was coated, I removed the stencil and allowed the background to dry.  

To complete the card I chose a sentiment from the Paper Hugs stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment onto black card stock using WOW embossing ink and then heat set using white powder.  I then trimmed the sentiment into a label using my paper trimmer.  To complete the card I trimmed the stencil background into a mini slimline using a die set, then adhered this to a card base.  I then adhered the envelopes using both tape runner and foam adhesive.  This completes my sparkly paper hugs card!  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  
I will be back soon!
