Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Let It Shine

This week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge our challenge is to create a card with as much bling as you can add. I had fun with mine. I used my new Plum Purdy Snowglobe Santa. I just loved this image. I stamped it onto a little square called a Twinchie which you can purchase from Stamping Bella. These are awesome. They are thick squares that you can stamp on and color. I used my Derwent pencil crayons and blended with mineral spirits. I clipped the corners with a corner punch to match the roundness of the snow globe. (You have to push really hard, and please do it before you color incase it wreck it). Then I had some fun with it, I added liquid glass to give it a real snow globe look, and while that was still wet, I sprinkled glitter on it. It turned out really nice. I used some more of that paper pack that my good friend Christine from Dol Creations found at Michaels. The colors are just gorgeous in this pack, all blues and reds. I cut a strip of red plaid to look like ribbon, and mounted that onto red cardstock that I punched with my Martha Stewart Snowflake Boarder punch. I tied a bow with the beautiful white ribbon from Papertrey, and put a large snowflake brad in the middle. The word Joy is red metal stick on letters that I had purchased from Michaels previously.

This should be a popular challenge, because what girl doesn't like bling. Our prizes this week are fantastic. This week we have :

A punch from Stamping Up from Emma. She is also offering free shipping on orders of 45 Euros.

Also Paula from our design team is also offering a beautiful Santa Stamp. Isn't he darling.

So try your hand at a card or project with tons of bling, and join us at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.

Hugs xx
