It's all about the sparkle today...

>> Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Hi Everyone,

I have a couple of cards to show off today with lots of glitter.  What can I say, I guess it was just the mood I was in.  This first one uses the Silhouette Majestic Pines stamp that was recently released.  They just cried out for some embossing, so I decided to be dramatic and use silver embossing powder on black card stock.  I added a die cut coated in silver glitter and paired it with the I Love You to the Moon greeting. Which was backed with more glitter ;)


I made the background using the Interlocking Stars and added a strip of dry embossed stars and a punched star border too.

I needed to send a birthday greeting to someone, so made this card using one of my favorite flower stamps from DRS Designs, the Dogwood Branch. After stamping it, I colored it with Copic markers and added Stickles to the center.


I added gems and a sparkly flower embellishment after I stamped my Small Birthday Wishes greeting. I actually made a similar card in purple before.  I loved it then, so I went ahead and cased myself.  However, I did get the idea to use the stamp for the background from Pam's awesome card here.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a happy, sparkly day :)

You have outdone yourself girl! I love your midnight trees, but your dogwood birthday card is incredible! I'd get another year older if I could get such a pretty card!
