Bling!

This was for this week's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS, BLING! and for the Sketch Challenge. The Ways To Use It Challenge was to use anything sparkly on your card and "glam it up." I used the Winter Wonder set from Verve Visual's latest release! I just love all of the different snowflakes in different sizes in this set. The fonts are so classy too. If you haven't checked out the new sets, go and do that. . .you won't believe the price!

I stamped the snowflakes in Taken With Teal ink on patterned paper from the DCWV All Dressed Up Stack. I overstamped some of them with Craft White. I added Icicle Stickles on top of the snowflakes for sparkle. For the focal piece, I stamped the sentiment in Taken With Teal 3 times without reinking. I stamped some snowflakes on that piece with the Tsukineko glue pad and sprinkles Dazzling Diamonds glitter over that. As a finishing touch, I paper pierced the inside edge of the card. Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Winter Wonder (Verve Visual); Ink- Taken With Teal, Craft White (Stampin' UP!), glue pad (Tsukineko); Paper- All Dressed Up Stack (DCWV), Basic Black, Taken With Teal, Whisper White (Stampin' UP!); Accessories- polka dot organdy ribbon (unknown), paper piercer, Icicle Stickles.

Do you use a real sewing machine on most of your cards? Do you just poke holes or use thread? Inquiring minds want to know....

Charmaine, this is so pretty! What a great challenge, I might need to carve out some time for that one. And a glue pad, that's been on my list for a while. Thanks for pushing me over the edge!
