Re-Blog: Ruby’s Sparkle and Shine Post

Happy Monday Night, everyone!  Today we’re re-blogging Ruby’s amazing Sparkle and Shine blog post – sorry it’s a little late (been busy today). Ruby has two beautiful cards which she created with the Round Diamonds set. You can visit her blog to check out all her amazing cards. I’ll let her take it from here 😉

Good morning! I have a fabulous post today featuring stamps and sequins from The Ton! My project includes layered stamping from Round Diamonds. I would love for you to visit their blog, share with friends, and spread some love! Feel free to use the social media icons at the bottom of this entry to share/repost!  ♡ ♡


For my first card, I tried some masking with the gem outline stamps and did some watercoloring with Distress Inks in Pickled Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Evergreen Bough on watercolor cardstock. I added a top layer using some Gansai Tambi watercolors. I added a bunch of splatters using the same Distress Ink colors and stamped “you are a rock” in Ranger Archival Jet Black ink since it is waterproof. Of course, I added matching color sequins to finish off the card. I finished it off with some Wink of Stella in clear!





Can you see the shine?



For my second card, I decided to tone it down and use neutral colors. I created a multiple circles shaker card filled with Shotgun Grayand black sequins. The gems were stamped using Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink in Charcoal and Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. I separated the “sparkle more & shine bright” sentiments and stamped them on opposite sides.


I finished it off with Glass Slippers sequins in different sizes and more Wink of Stella. It works so well with these gems since gems sparkle, right?! 🙂


You can find all the sequins here! There are so many different colors and sizes.

The Ton is available on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram. Please SUBSCRIBE for details! As I mentioned before, we have some great news to share a few weeks so stay tuned!

I can’t believe I’ve had over 10,000 views on my blog. That’s so exciting! Currently there’s a giveaway on my Instagram. I wish I could do it more often but shipping adds up for an unemployed student 🙂 Happy crafting, my friends!
