I have gone subtle with my pink sparkle, and decided to use twinkle embossing powder over the dotted stamp, and small sections on the background paper of the rose. The background has been created with Sarah's background stamps, and a section of Sarah's Kissing Booth paper behind her beautiful digi Rose, coloured with promarkers.

I went for all out pinkness with my card, and used stamps from "Borders, Corners and Banners", "Elephant Tinchie" and "Wish Upon a Star". Full details are on my blog.

I have used  the Wish upon a star set and Be amazing
Promarkers ,Distress inks and loads of sparkly embossing powder.
Full details are on my blog

I used the fantastic hexagon mask to create my pink background on white card. I spritzed this with Diamond Dust glimmer mist for some sparkle. I also used the amazing Large Crackle background stamp - I love this stamp! I then used some paper scraps, a pink die cut tag and a journalling tag and some sequins. Oh and some diamond dust stickles...I really tried to make it sparkle!!

I used my mini me from the 
80's stamp set to make my tag.

 I have used the super fabulous ombre chevron paper from Sarah's Kissing Booth kit and the star stamps are from Wish Upon A Star.

I made this little card for my niece using Sarah's Dream a Little Dream stamp and the little star stamps from Sarah's Odds & Ends stamp set. I've coloured the girl in using Promarkers in Blush, Blossom & Rose Pink, then I coated her dress in pink sparkly flocking powder. I used Magenta & Baby Pink Stickles to add colour to the stars. I also used the speech bubble stamp which was an exclusive stamp from one of Sarah's A Few of My Favourite Things monthly kit.

I used Sarah's Say Cheese! digital scrapbooking kit. I love all the elements and papers on this kit and added a touch of sparkle by using pink glitter in a strip. I also put a pink sequin in the center of the camera lens for additional texture.  


I used papers from Sarah's All Sewn Up A5 Paper pack along with the Baby Feet Clear Stamp set to create this very pink and a little bit sparkly 'New Baby' card. More details on my blog. 

The background was created using the following of Sarah's stamps- Girl Wish Upon A Star, Girl Be Amazing,Borders,Corners & Banners, Doodle Home and the Mini Texture Stamps. Two die cut hearts were added to give dimension.

I used some paper from Journaled365 for the background,sprayed with shimmer spray.The other elements and the telephone stamp are from this month's fabulous My Favourite Things kit.

I used a floral paper from the English Country Garden Digi Kit, pink ombre paper from the Oz Digi Kit, upon which I stamped the cake from Sarah's Love and Marriage Stamp Set, using pink glitter embossing powder.

I used my favourite ever new Butterfly stamps to make a CAS card with pink ink and sparkles
