While there was a lot of stamps & pieces to this card; it was so much fun to create (sensing a trend here?!) It was a blast mixing & matching all the great Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps & sets. And three of the sets are from the newest releases which makes them even more fun to design with! The main element that ties everything together are the beautiful Copper embossed frames that surround every image. These are from the new Thoughtful Frames - Set 436. They make such a perfect accent for so many different things & there's two more great frames on this set as well as a bunch of lovely sayings as well. A really useful & versatile set to own.

Of course, the really fun thing about a waterfall card is the movement. If you've never done one of these cards before; give yourself a treat & make one or two or three! (Full instructions for this card can be found here in the art gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle). In order to flip through all the great "pages" of the waterfall, you pull on the pretty "pull tab" made with ribbon & a Spellbinders Parisian Accent die. While doing that, you'll flip through fun sayings & images from the new Bird Swirl - Set 432,
new Fancy Butterflies - Set 437 & Thoughtful Frames - Set 436,
and many other favorite sets such as Nikki's Romance - Set 400 , Love Is Sweet - Set 401, and Solid Butterfly - Set 391. It's so much fun to pull together all these different images & sayings to make a really special card for that special someone in your life. As a matter of fact, this card was so much fun that I already have ideas for a bunch more waterfall cards from all the great stamp sets at Sparkle N Sprinkle. Hopefully I'll have some more of those to share with you in the coming months; so be sure to stay tuned for those. In the meantime, don't forget to check out the SNS Art Gallery for the full instructions to this card.
