{Spotlight Project} More Ways To Use Sparkly With Monika

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! I am back today with another set of cards using the small gems from the Sparkly set.

Here they are:

For my first card, I have taken inspiration from my last Spotlight Project post here. I wondered, if I could stamp something resembling a mandala and have the sentiment in the center. Cheery rainbow colours seemed to fit the bill.

I picked a sentiment and die-cut an oval shape to use as a mask.

I the played around choosing the position for my sentiment and decided to put it towards the bottom of my card.

I put the oval in place and stamped the gems around it. Not quite the mandala I had in mind, but I rather like the arched shape.

To finish I stamped my sentiment and added a few gems.

For my next card, I decided to use just one of the gems in combination with my sentiment and the die-cut oval.

I stamped the gem repeatedly and slightly offset in Mer Du Sud Izink ink. It is not very important for the stamping to be very straight.

I then added some more gems in a contrasting Cerise colour.

The sentiment was stamped in Elegant Eggplant on my die-cut oval.

To finish I added some Elegant Eggplant spray, attached my sentiment and a few gems.

Here is one last look at this week's colourful creations:

  1. Fun cards! I particularly like the second one, and am thinking the design would work great for a masculine card by switching out the stamps and the colours. Thanks for the inspiration!
