Glitz and Bling

Hi Everyone,


It is time for a new challenge at Holly Jolly and it is hosted by Paige. 


The challenge is Glitter and Bling.


I decided to use some Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder for the Glitter and some Rhinestones for the Bling.

The layout of my card was inspired by the current layout at Simply Stampin Challenges and the colours are inspired by the Dynamic Duos current challenge which is to use Cherry Cobbler and a colour of your choice.


The colours I have used are Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.


I used the Snow Flurry Die to cut the snow flakes in Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.  The larger snowflake I inked up with Versamark and then added some Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder and heated to get my Glitter sparkle.


The Soft Suede turned a lot darker than I had hoped but the Cherry Cobbler looks great. Plus I added some sparkle to myself – LOL as the little bits of glitter just seem to float around your work space.


I added some Rhinestones to the smaller snow flake and added the Merry Christmas Sentiment from the Come to Bethlehem stamp set which has been cut out using the Bitty Banners Framelits.


Here is my card:






Stamp set: Come to Bethlehem

Card: Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark

Accessories:  Snow Flurry Die, Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder, Glue Dots, Bitty Banners Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



The layout is great for a quick card and I will add this sparkly card to my Christmas Card stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


Simply Stampin Challenge - #79 Sketch

Dynamic Duos Challenge – # 22 Mix Match Week

Frosted Designs Challenge – Embossing

Jingle Belles Rock Challenge – Dashing Through the Snow



We would love to see you at Holly Jolly so please pop over and have a look at what the other team members have created.


Thanks for visiting my little crafty corner and I hope to see you again soon. 


Have a great week… Meg
