Christmas Bling


It's time again for another challenge from 

Playing along with Season's Greetings Challenge Blog (which is Christmas all year long) is a great way to get a head start on your Christmas cards, in a relaxed fashion and not in a rush!
The theme for Challenge #3, is as always "Anything Goes" or you can use the optional twist "Wet & or Dry Embossing."

After you check out how my card was made, be sure to go and see what the other talented Designers have for you today!!

This month I picked to use "Anything Goes" to make my glittery my glittery card.

Here is how it was made;
1.  I diecut gold glitter paper with the Holly Die from Stampendous and glued it to a slightly larger white panel that had the center sponged with green ink.
2.  I added red rhinestones for the holly berries and wrapped the bottom with red and white striped twine.  This was then popped up on a red top folding card.
3.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, on a white frame diecut using Fitted Frames B from Stampendous and layered onto a larger red frame.  This was glued to the top of the card.

Stencil Love


This week has sure been fun sharing cards made with metal stencils from Stampendous and different techniques, but this is my last stencil post of the week.  This card used the double glitter technique for the heart and dry embossing for the background.  Here is how my card was made.

1.  Cut a piece of Double Sided Mounting Paper (it's sticky on both sides) the size of the Ornate Heart Metal Stencil.  Remove the backing from one side and stick to a piece of white cardstock.
2.  Rub Ornate Heart Metal Stencil with Coconut Soap and place soap side down on Double Sided Mounting Paper after removing the backing.  This step is a must!! It allows the stencil to be removed from the Mounting paper without ripping it.  Here is a link to the Stampendous INSTRUCTIONS on this technique and it says to use VersaMark as a release.  I'm sure this works great but I haven't tried it. There is also a link to a video on this page.
3.  Sprinkle the stencil with Crystal Micro Glitter and rub with finger.  Shake off excess glitter and return to the jar.
4.  Hold stencil, stencil side down over a trashcan and pull Mounting Paper off of stencil.
5.  Now sprinkle Mounting Paper with Black Micro Glitter, rub with finger and throw out excess glitter (it might be mixed with some of the Crystal Glitter).
6.  Cut heart out and set aside.
7.  Dry emboss Antique Keys on rose paper and sponge with pearlized metallic acrylic paint before removing stencil. Place the stencil in warm soapy water and clean.
8.  Layer onto black paper and glue to a rose colored card.
9.  Glue heart to the card diagonally, glue rose colored ribbon to the center and glue a key charm below the bow.
10.  Stamp sentiment on white paper with black ink, layer onto black paper and pop up on card.

Supplies
Stampendous
FMS4060 Ornate Heart Metal Stencil
FMS4053 Antique Keys Metal Stencil
SSCM5002 Painted Wishes
MG01 Crystal Micro Glitter
MG18 Black Micro Glitter

Plus
May Arts Ribbon
Paper- rose, black, white
Pearlized Metallic acrylic paint
key charm

I hope I have inspired you to try some of the techniques with stencils that I've shared this week, I know you will love the results!
