Snow Buddy Northern Lights Sparkle Card | Ink On 3

There is Snow Buddy Like You... So cute, I love that sentiment! 

Today I had fun playing around with distress oxide inks to create this northern light's sky for this cute little bear from Ink On 3's Snow Buddies Stamp set. I also finally got the New Liquid Pixie Dust in the snail mail (doesn't help the at Canada post is on strikeπŸ‘Ž) and was so excited to play with that too!

It is so difficult to show you all as today is so cloudy and it was so hard to capture all the shine in pictures, especially on the white. The bottom of the card is completely covered in liquid pixie dust, I just wish you could see it in person 😍

To make this card was simple, but it did take a few steps. I first stamped out the stars using Juicy Ink and then heat embossed it using the Crystal Clear embossing powder. I then stamped out the bear using Blackout Ink and then masked him off to work on the background also masking the snow area. Next, I used various sizes of the blending brushes to add the colors to the sky (see links below for the colors used) I then spritzed the background with water to lift off some of the color and removed the masks. Next, I lightly rubbed the color off the stars using a paper towel to reveal the white of the paper behind the clear embossing.


I then colored my little bear in using Zig Markers and applied a coat of liquid pixie dust to the scarf and hat. I then took a larger paintbrush and painted the whole bottom of the card with the pixie dust to create a glittery snow effect. Once that area was dry I stamped out the sentiment under the bear and finished the card by adding all the embellishing touches. The glossy accents to the eyes and the nose, the white gel highlights and falling snow and finally the strip of Stickles glitter glue along the edge of the snow.

Hope you liked today's Snow Buddy Northern Lights Sparkle Card. I will try posting a video on Instagram later to see if I can capture the shine better. 

Also, make sure you stop by Ink On 3 for more details on this fabulous new product! It is amazing!!! It is kinda like the Wink of Stella pens but way more concentrated and you get SO much more of if it the bottle. Super easy to apply and you can add it to any medium to create a sparkly color or add overtop once you are done the coloring.

WOW! Embossing Powder and Studio Katia Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello Friends and Welcome πŸ‘‹

Today two amazing companies are teaming up and invite you to WOW! Embossing Powder and Studio Katia Collaboration Blog Hop! Our Design Teams members are sharing their creativity with you through stunning and inspiring projects they created using fabulous products from these two amazing companies. Be sure to check every stop on the way to enjoy all the inspiration we have for you and for your chance to win some fabulous prizes! If you have already started on the Hop, you would have arrived here from the amazingly talented Yazmin's Blog. I will share where to go next at the end of the post πŸ˜‰ So let's check out the results of combining products from these two fabulous companies!

CARD DETAILS:
For my card today I chose to use the gorgeous Blooming Bunch floral stamp set. I began by stamping out the image onto watercolor paper and then colored the blooms in using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Once the paper was dry I fussy cut the image out.

The next thing I did is going to sound a bit crazy... but since I wanted to use WOW! Embossing Glitters today and didn't realize I needed a bonding powder (can you tell I'm still a newbie at this), so I had to figure out a different way to do things. Leave it to me to make things harder! Anyways, my solution was to use a quicky glue pen and trace over the lines of each image that I wanted to add a specific color too. This made it easier to control exactly where I wanted the specific colors of glitter to go. Then I would use my heat gun to melt the glitter and set the glue, which I know your not supposed to do with glitter but it turned out beautifully resulting in a rough glittered texture! 

For the leaves I used Green Glitz, on the orange peony I used Sunset Boulevard, for the roses I used Red Glitz,  and for the yellow peony, I used the Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter.

Check out all the pretty sparkly detail!

I then popped this beautiful Blooming Bunch onto a panel I had die cut using the frame from the Dotted Patterns Set 3 Die set and then stenciled on the dots using the Bubbles Stencil. To the bottom right corner, I stamped out the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Birthday Greetings set and then added the hello which was heat embossed in Metallic Gold Rich SF Embossing powder. And that pretty much finishes off this sparkly card!
