As I mentioned last week I think the Pyrotechnics set is my absolute favorite of the new release!  I’ve always loved watching fireworks and I (ha) had my heart set on having real fireworks (not sparklers) at my wedding until I learned how expensive they were…*sigh*  But NOW, I can make my own with endless combinations of glitter, embossing powders, and layouts! 😉

So, here’s my card:

Man, I LOVE these stamps!!  So, I started off by breaking out the Color Burst Powders!  I taped a panel of watercolor paper onto a solid surface and thoroughly saturated the paper.  Then I squirted a little of the red, blue, and purple powders onto the paper and let them blend naturally.  I used my heat tool to push the color around a little more and then dried the paper completely.  Once the watercolors were dry I spritzed a little watered-down iridescent medium onto the panel for extra shimmer.  I knew I was going to be doing a lot of embossing so I set the panel aside to give it even more drying time and worked on the rest of the card.

I inked up the Lawn Fawn critters with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used a baby wipe to remove the ink from their faces.  I wanted the images to stamp as if you were looking at the back of the animals similar to this adorable card by Yainea!  I colored them with copics and added a little clear wink of stella glitter to the white fur.  I fussy cut the animals and went over the edges with my black copic marker.  Next I die-cut grass from several different colors and textures of cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from I Got You in versamark and then heat-embossed it with WOW Diamond White glitter embossing powder.

Then it was FIREWORK time!  Ha, can you sense my enthusiasm?!  I started off by stamping the largest firework and the smaller matching firework in versamark and heat-embossed it with WOW Diamond White glitter embossing powder.  I heat-embossed half of the smaller fireworks with Enchanted Gold glitter embossing powder and the other half with WOW Holographic embossing powder.

I assembled the card by arranging and adhering two layers of grass onto the card before adding the critters.  Then I adhered the final grass layer with the sentiment on top.  This card is so ridiculously sparkly and shimmery…I LOVE it!

Anyway, thanks so much for visiting!  Check back tomorrow for a Trending post!  Keep sharing with us via Instagram(tag your creations with #theton, #thetonstamps or #thetongilding), Facebook, Pinterest, or our newly created Flickr gallery and you just might find yourself Trending with The Ton!
