Saw this on cardmaker this morning! Love it! I have some of those myself and I love the shimmer glitter feeling of them! Have you ever used them to create a negative image? So fun! Thanks for sharing!

Faye said...

These are new to me but would love to try them out on my cards. I particularly like the second set with Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, etc. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Margie said...

I love the look of the top set-I would love to try Angel Pink and London Fog!

richardbreaks said...

I would love to try a "stippled" look with that London fog spray over a vintage looking stamp. These look like great fun!

BRG said...

I love misty look cards ... I think my favourite would be the pear tart.

Lynette Hoelter said...

These look fantastic! I saw your card on the CardMaker Blog this morning -- I've seen the Fireworks sprays but have always been afraid to try them, thinking I'd make a mess. I do a lot of cardmaking and I think I would use them for backgrounds and maybe try them with a resist technique. It's hard to chose a favorite color, but I think Pear Tart and Lilac Posies could look cool together!

Theresa said...

Thank you for the tutorial on how to make the card. I also make cards and am always looking for new ways to make backgrounds. This sounds really easy and looks nice.

My favorite color would be from the first collection and would be rose bud.

By the way, I picked up a three sided box at Sam's the last time we were there and it would be perfect for spraying because it would contain any extra spray.

Thank you for sharing.

Sue D said...

I haven't really used sprays that much although I have a few. I like the technique you used and will be trying that. I like that these match Memento colors.
I think my favorite color would be lilac posies and I would use it to make a card with lilacs.

Saw your card on cardnaker love it. As far as a favorite spray not use I am a little afraid to try them. Thank you for sharing and the awesome give - a-way.

Sandra Strait said...

I love Fireworks sprays. Dandelion is my favorite color!

Becky Dunham said...

Oh my goodness AJ! What an awesome giveaway! I have not used spray inks much as I always get big spots of color on my projects :( But thanks to your tips, I want them all now :) My favorite colors are green and purple so I would have to go with the second set, Bamboo Leavs and Lulu Lavender especially, but that Dandelion looks lovely too! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Tara Lee said...

I would love to use the Grape Jelly on my cards. It seems like lately all my cards are full of purple.

Ravengirl said...

I am most attracted to the purples, Lulu Lavender and Grape Jelly. Realistically, I think I would use something like London Fog or Angel Pink on my CAS cards!

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

ooohhhh so pretty! I love the lilac posies! This would be great for some of my girly layouts and or cards! Thanks!

Rebecca Ednie said...

I think the lavender would be my favourite colour. I'd use it mainly on cards but also scrap pages and since I'm newly into mixed media, I'm sure it would find its way onto an art journal page or canvas at some point! Ooh, and I'd also due some seam binding with it. Yum

Sherry said...

Wow, they are both pretty! I would take either one, lol. thanks for a chance to win.

What fun FireWorks must be to play with. I love the bg you've created with just these two colors. I'm a BIG Memento fan.

Mary Ann said...

Thanks for a chance to win,Your card is awesome!I never used sprays before,but I would love to give it a try,I like the 2 sets!!!

craftydr said...

I love this look of the stippling and I think these would be great for so many projects.
I love the top set and I think my favorite color is Tangelo or Grape Jelly but they are all fabulous. I love color so it is hard to choose.
I would use the sprays for card backgrounds like you did, ATC's, Tags, canvas mixed media, use with stencils and dyeable fabric pieces.
Thanks for this giveaway and I love CardMaker magazine.

Mandee said...

Oh my those are all pretty. I love both sets and would be happy with either set. I love your card and would like try for backgrounds. I would also love to try them on die cuts before I applied them to my card. I can think of several different things I would like to try. Gee I want these in the worst of ways. hehe

LindaS said...

Wonderful card. Love the sprayed background.
I use memento a lot especially London Fog and rosebud so the first one would be my choise. I would love to try them with stencils or bacground coloring.

McStamper said...

The grape jelly looks great - definitely would try a card first. Thanks for the give away.

Becky said...

Great card AJ! All of them are such fun colors, my favorite would probably be Lulu Lavender because I love purple, and I would use it on a flower card cuz I love flowers too!

Carole RB said...

I would love to use Grape Jelly, Lilac Posies, Lulu Lavender when I make cards or work in my mixed media journal. Thanks for the opportunity to win

Jean McGee said...

O WOW!!! I did not know of these sprays before seeing your card (which is very pretttttyy). I know I would use the first set more often cuz those are the color ink pads I use all the time on my cards.

JPScraps said...

I never heard of these. My favorite color is green and I can visualize some really nice mixed media canvases. :-)

Kitty said...

My favorite color would have to be dandelion since you do not have any blues (which are my real favorites. I would use it on my handmade cards.

Blessings,
Kathleen

karenajo said...

Bamboo leaves sounds like a great color to use as a background for some pretty flowers on a card. Greens are some of my favorite accent colors - they brighten so many scenes !

Webster said...

OMG, I just started making my own cards. Don't ask me for my favorite color, because I don't have one. I tend to go for the brights, though.

Sabrina said...

Your card is beautiful! I have just started using sprays and they are fun. I haven't had a chance to try out fireworks yet but sure would love to try them. I always love the purples but oh the green are calling my name too. I just got some new dies so that would be perfect. Thank you so much for the chance to win.

Maria said...

My color would be Grape Jelly, I would use them on my cards, scrapbook layouts. Thanks for the chance to win

PoJo said...

Love what you are doing with these sprays! I am so a "Ladybug" color girl!

Cheryl Putnam said...

Just had a mini class on these this weekend....so versatile!! Would love to have my own sets so I, too, can spray away!!

Carol Gibson said...

I would love the LuLu Lavender. I would use this card for changing
the color of embellishments and
misting on cards. Thanks for the
chance to win such a fabulous prize.

Your card is very pretty.

LuLu Lavender is my favorite. Thanks so much for the chance. I really need more sprays. Your card is beautiful. I forgot to say..I would use it on my cards and on cavas's. Thanks again.

kborus said...

Only one??? lulu lavender then as my favorite color is purple, I love the smell of lavender, and I used to call my daughter LuLu! The colors all look scrumptious! I would love to play and create with them.

kathy said...

What fun to be able to play with so many choices of the fireworks. Cottage ivy seems to be a color I would choose to be able to add some shimmer to my layouts with spring coming. Thank you for the chance to win.

J L said...

This is so cool! I love to spray and I love the effect that comes out.

Sacha said...

Lu Lu Lavender! I love to use colors with a little sparkle and coloring flowers is the best way to do that! I will impress all my friends! (PS my yorkie dog is named Thelma Lu Lu so I could not resist a color with HER name) thanks!!

calamity jane said...

Thanks for the great tips on these sprays! Just the name.."Fireworks" Crafts Ink Sprays sounds like fun to me! I love the cantaloupe and oranges. The greens are ones I'd use too. I have a ton of white flowers that desperately need color!!

Irene Grau said...

This is the first I've heard of Fireworks. Your spray experiment looks like it was great fun!

My favorite colors are greens. I would likely use them to do stenciled sprays on greeting cards.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Carol said...

I am kind of into orange and would use these sprays in my art journal.

I don't know if your prize is available to overseas commenters but I just had to comment anyway! I love the look of these sprays, the colours are so vibrant - love the greens - I'd use the Bamboo and Cottage Ivy to make a gorgeous bg before stamping some leaves!

Kailash said...

My favorite color would be lilac and would love to use these inks on cards. Would be fun to try different techniques!!!
