New Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamp Set!

SparkleN Sprinkle has just released a new stamp set called Wild Cats and it is fantastic for making masculine cards.  With Father’s Day around the corner, along with my husband’s birthday, I could hardly wait to get my hands on this set.

I stamped the Snow Leopard in black and colored with alcohol markers.  I cut it out with a Spellbinders’ label die and layered it on a Spellbinders’ Circle die cut covered with Log Cabin embossing powder.  I added this, along with embossed rectangles, to two distressed layers on a cream card base.  For embellishment I used parts of a Victorian Romance Flourish die, cut out of sticker paper and covered with Meadow Spark Glitter.  Then I fussy cut three Dark Fern images, heat embossed with Moss embossing powder.  I combined these in the upper corner surrounding the sentiment, which is part of the Courage Set.  It can be purchased separately or as part of this Wild Cats set.  

I was really excited to use some new jewels I just purchased at a local craft store.  It was hard to photograph how neat these look.  They have a leopard print design in them so they go great with this card.

Masculine cards are so hard, but this one is just perfect, I love all the texture and interest on the card, without having feminine flowers and bows. Just perfect.
