Oh my goodness, I just love getting new rubbah!! A very dear friend from FREEZING Minnesota, sent me this set of stamps today. The set is called "The World Over" and is absolutely adorable. It is a 2006-2007 Stampin' Up level 1 hostess set. So that means you can earn it FREE with a 150+ workshop. WOWZA!! Anyhow, I hadn't gotten around to getting this one yet myself, so Miss Stark popped it in the mail as a surprise!!! Thanks Shelly!
Anywho...I sat down tonight and made this card, which I am pretty pleased with. I started with a card made of Old Olive, and stamped the Crosshatch Background stamp on it with Whisper White craft ink and then embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Then I tied some red grosgrain ribbon around, and added a little piece of blue gingham and some silver cord. After that, I stamped the little snow people in Basic Black onto some Shimmery White cardstock, mounted it on a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock stamped with the Linnen background stamp inClose to Cocoa ink, and colored them in with Stampin' Write markers. After that I added some Crystal Effects to the snow people to make them "pop" and sprinkled a little bit on Dazzling Diamonds glitter into the Crystal Effects. A little spritz with a Bashful Blue marker and the color spritzing tool, and I was done. A very simple, very sparkly, holiday card!!
If you click on the picture, it will open it up bigger which makes it MUCH easier to see (more sparkly too, lol)
