Glitter~Glitter~ Everywhere!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

Can I just tell you how much I love this Ornament Punch? Well I do!!!

I decided to use this for my Stampin 411 sketch challenge this week. I hope you like it.

Here is the sketch…done by our fantabulous Selene!!!


….and here is my interpretation…………

Sketch 124 and 125 003

I first started with my fold over which is 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” and used my Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up! I then cut the two strips to 1 -1/2” by 3- 3/4” and 1- 1/2”x 4-1/4”

My mats are cut to 2” square and 2 1/4” square. I punched an ornament with the Ornament Punch and cut in half. I used lots of dimensionals to make it pop which is sometimes difficult for tone on tone cards but hopefully I’ve achieved it. I did use some Dazzling Diamonds applied with a 2-way glue pen and also some of our Fine Supernova Glitter for the Ornament. The sentiment is from “Berry Christmas.

Okay, now that you’ve visited with me I hope you’ll go on over to Stamping 411 and see what the other Operators are doing and also play along. We’d love to have you.

Thanks for stopping by and as always….

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

Gasp! Selene. this is breathtaking. I love the multiple layers you used - it adds so much interest to a monochromatic card and the multiple twists of the elastic cord are a fabulously luxe touch.
thanks so much for sharing.

Selene Kempton said...

We certainly were on the same wavelength... Maybe cause we both used all white! I love what you did here, all the layers of white make your creation regal.

Lee, this card is breathtaking - I love everything about it. It's so rich and elegant and I love the wrapped gold cord bow on that panel - genius!
BTW, I read your apple story to my hubby and daughter tonight and they were rolling on the floor laughing! Mark said you should send it in to Reader's Digest! Really, it's just hysterical!
