Hi! Today I have a sparkly creation for you – I hope you like it!
I just love how this tree sparkles like it is in the midst of a snowfall. To achieve the look – stamp your tree (I colored my tree with markers – Garden Green and Chocolate Chip) and stamp it in the center of your card stock. Without reinking, stamp again to the left and right. Sponge Night of Navy around the tree for the sky. Next, apply Versa Mark over the entire image by running the pad directly over the paper. Sprinkle Heat & Stick Powder to the VersaMark and then heat gently to melt. Quickly sprinkle on Dazzling Diamonds glitter, tap off excess and then heat gently to adhere the glitter. Pretty simply and oh so pretty! I did use a retired die from the Apothecary Accents set to die cut my tree but you could easily do this with the Layering Ovals set and/or if you were able to purchase them in November, the Stitched Ovals.
If you still have a crafty friend to buy for this year, consider giving them a gift of Paper Pumpkin – this is a sweet box that arrives once a month to their door filled with a little crafty break – complete with stamps, ink, papers, card stock and embellishments. Each month is a different kit. Subscriptions can be for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months. Stampin’ Up! will even send you an email with a gift certificate that you can print out to give to your recipient! Can’t get any easier than that!
Thanks for stopping by!
