STAMPlorations Inspiration Post #47

Happy Friday everyone!  Its a great day to share another card over at STAMPlorations!  Its time for the Inspiration Team to try and inspire you to create.  We hope that our cards will help get your creative juices flowing and you'll join us.  You can CASE one of our cards from today's post or from post #46. Or you can check out the CASEplorations post and CASE Suchi's fabulous card.  And there's always a chance to win a prize if you do play along!  Here's what I came up with...

(All stamps by STAMPlorations)

I first masked off a section of my card then laid my Holly Background stencil on it.  Using clear versamark ink, I sponged over the stencil.  I removed the stencil and mask and embossed it using Vintage Mint embossing powder (Recollections).  I trimmed a piece of silver glitter tape (Darice) and attached it to the card.  I die cut a snowflake (Echo Park), attached it to the card and added some bling.  I found these cool rhinestone type embellishments at Walmart and they only came in a few colours.  I used the clear one and tinted it the green I wanted with a Spectrum Noir marker.  I stamped the sentiment (Holiday Sketches: Christmas Candles set) in Dove Gray StazOn ink.  Really love that Vintage Mint embossing powder.  Such a soft colour and great sparkle.

Well, I sure hope you'll be able to play along with us.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fantastic Friday!  Enjoy the weekend!
