Simply Stampin Challenge Theme Week

 In this weeks Simply Stampin Challenge
 the task was to make your own background paper!  I had some fun with this, using the snowflake stamps with Whisper White, Night of Navy, Ballet Blue and Versamark, Heat and Stick powder and glitter.  I put this card together, but had so much trouble with the photography!  How do you get the light right when photographing glitter cards? I could get the image right, then the background glitter didn't show up, and vice versa! Any suggestions on this would be gratefully received! 

  The card is a biggy! 8" x 8" using the cut away style.  I found a Sizzix frame die in my collection that I had forgotten about and had some fun with that.  I cut two frames out, one in white and one in navy, then mixed them up which gave it an interesting look (note to self: use this again!) Guess what, the Lovely as a Tree set had to be used again!  Oh, and loads of glitter - I just love this tree stamped in white and all glittered up!! The navy paper was just stamped using the snowflakes and white ink - so I have a piece left over - what to do next?!!!

Well, in this very British year of celebration a Red White and Blue Christmas Card!!
Using the Holiday Ornaments dies and Ornament Keepsakes stamps again (I love these) Cherry Cobbler ink and ribbon, with Serene Snowflakes stamps for the background.  Very patriotic!!
Thanks for looking, I had fun, hope you did too!

  1. Wow - I just love your card and all the glitter!! What I like is you stamped your DSP with a consistant pattern which is very similar to some DSP papers.
