Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle It's a Cultural Thing Blog Hop!

If you hopped here by way of the Sparkle N Sprinkle home blog then you are ready to start.  This is my last blog hop as a designer on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Design team, my card says it all to my fellow Design Team Members and to you the hoppers that participate  and those of you who just look.... YOU'RE FANTASTIC.


I used one of my favorite far east stamp sets to create this thank you card.  You can find the Stamp Set 177 Asian 2 Japanese Lady by clicking here.  I used four stamps from this set to create this card.  I stamped the Japanese Lady on watercolor paper with Stazon and used markers and a water color brush to color her.  I added Celestial Glitter G1031 to her collar and outlined the hexagons on her robe with Starfire Glitter G1017. I embossed the Lanterns with Gold Detail EP168 then colored and cut them out. I embossed the sentiment on watercolor paper with Red Apple EP276 then cut it out with  Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two.  Check out that cool side border.  If you would like to look at the complete instructions then click here.
All of my cards that I have designed for Sparkle N Sprinkle can be found here then type in my name and click on go.

I would like to thank each of you for stopping by and remember to leave a comment to become eligible for  the four great prizes, now I am sending you over to the Amazing Amanda Reed.

I loved your card. I loved all the gold stuff, and I thought the colors were really complimentary to the gold. I feel that the card was an excellent cultural card. I could feel I was in in Asia somewhere. I can't find a correct identity; my email address is danda88@verizon.net and my name is Aileen
