New Stamps at Sparkle N Sprinkle!!

Today Sparkle N Sprinkle is introducing two new stamp sets today.

I absolutely love these new images as I am partial to hummingbirds. I love to sit by my bay window during the summer and watch these adorable tiny creatures as they visit my hummingbird feeder.  They are so fascinating.  This is the inspiration for my card.

For this new image I decided to use a new technique I have been playing with.  I stamped and heat embossed it in white on watercolor paper and colored it with reinkers.  It has such a soft look but the colors are still so vibrant.  For more details on how to make this card, visit the gallery on the SNS website here.

Now head to the SNS blog to see more lovely cards inspired by these new sets.
