The challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' this month is Glitter, Glitter Everywhere! This challenge is one of my favorites of all times since I LOVE shiny, glittery and sparkly. Here's my card, made with a Stampendous stamp, for the challenge. My best friend, Lillian, gave me this stamp for Christmas and the minute I saw it, I started humming "Frosty the Snowman". Snowmen images are my favorite images, and whether it is a digi stamp or a rubber stamp (like this one), doesn't matter...I love snowmen. I've colored this one in six different color schemes now and have had to pick one for this challenge...the pastel aqua won the coin toss. I hope you like this one, too.
I stamped my image and colored it with Copics. Then I put a piece of double stick adhesive over the entire image and sprinkled Cool Glitter Ritz all over it, smoothed it over the surface with my finger and then poured the excess back into the container. (Note: ALWAYS turn off your ceiling fan before using this very fine glitter!) The Cool Glitter Ritz has a blue undertone which was perfect for this card (and blends well with gray carpet). I used a soft teal glitter paper for my Joy die of snowflakes on the edge and added this pretty teal ribbon with stamped snowflakes that has a touch of silver glitter in the center of each snowflake. The white snowflakes are cut out with a QuicKutz die and layered from white holographic paper. The corner die is by QuicKutz and the sentiment is from my stash and I used an EK punch to cut it out. The pearls, along with the teal and lavender rhinestones, are from my stash.
The challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is sponsored by Stamp Art Design by Kathryne who has donated 5 digital images! The gals at CaSS have created awesome cards for this challenge of Glitter, Glitter Everywhere. My card is posted half way through the month-long challenge so you still have time to get your card done and posted to the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge blog!
