A Little Sparkle

Are you the type of person who likes to add a little sparkle to each of your projects? If so, the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is perfect for you! My favorite sentiment in this set is ‘Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go’. These words are appropriate for cards for so many occasions, including birthdays, weddings, and congratulations!

The Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set also has two sentiments for encouragement: ‘Believe’ and ‘Make Your Dreams Come True’. The unicorn, star and flourish images are beautiful when stamped or embossed, with or without added color. If you like, you can sponge, color or paint them too!

Here are images of all the stamps in this set, along with a couple of projects featuring the unicorns from Leave a Little Sparkle.

My project today is inspired by items left on my crafting table. I used up a fancy die-cut piece from the Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (Stampin’ Up – retired). If you don’t have this paper, keep reading and I’ll give you a couple of alternative product ideas!

I also have these three Not Quite Navy flowers (from the retired Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy Punch) in my stash. So I chose the coordinating Not Quite Navy card stock color for the card base. The starburst is from a Paper Pumpkin project, and it measures about 1-1/2″ in diameter. It is the ideal size to fit in the indentation of the white laser-cut layer!

Finishing Touches

Finish off the card with a little sparkle! Here I added a couple of blue Glitter Enamel Dots, but use whatever sparkly embellishments you have on hand. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the products for this card. Part of the fun is recreating a project with different items!

Alternative Product Ideas

For example, instead of the retired Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, try the Shimmer Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper in the 2019-2010 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. For the flowers, how about the Medium Daisy Punch and Daisy Lane stamp set? Bundle them together in the Daisy Lane Bundle and save 10% on your purchase! Substitute a starburst or circle punch, or a die like the Stitched Shapes Dies for your sentiment piece. Add Clear Faceted Gems or Glitter Enamel Dots for a little sparkle.
