On World Card Making Day Rich and I took a little drive to a nearby coastal town where we visited the cheese factory and picked up a few goodies, then took the dogs to the beach on the way back. We’ve been having weather that would make summer jealous. So it wasn’t a stamping day for me, but it was certainly a very nice day.
I did, however, want to make a sample for Power Poppy’s World Card Making Day Challenge, so I did that on Monday. The challenge runs till Saturday, Oct 10. The random winner will have their choice of three digital stamp sets or one clear stamp set. Good stuff! I used one of my favorites from last year: Bottlebrush Holiday.
There are three rules to this challenge:
- Use the sketch provided
- Make it a holiday card in non-traditional colors
- Add sparkle or bling
Then link it up here and keep your inky fingers crossed! Check out the sparkle:
Coloring of the trees was done with Copic markers and sparkle added with Stickles Stardust glitter glue. I colored the inner circles of the doily and glued a die cut snowflake over top. The doily assembly was pressed into my Tsukineko Essential glue pad and sprinkled with microfine glitter. Most of the effect of the microfine glitter is lost in the photo, but up close and personal it’s so very soft and snowy and delicate, as well as quite sparkly.
Play along, have a good time and maybe win something fabulous. Thanks so much for stopping here today!
