Paper Smooches Holiday Card!! =)

Pin It

I'm stopping in to share a Holiday Card I've made for two different Challenges going on over on the Paper Smooches Blog!! I'm entering this into the Guest Designer Search - December Challenge and the Anything Goes Challenge on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog!! =)

I started by using one of my New Favorite Paper Smooches Stamp Set "A Blessed Christmas"!!
I LOVE EVERYTHING about this set and have SO MANY Ideas with the Images/Sentiments in the Set!! Now if I only had an EXTRA 4-6 Hours in a Day to be able to make them ALL!! HAHAHAHA!! =)

I wanted to use the Angel Image and I wanted to give her some Dimension by making the Wings 3-D!! I LOVE to add dimension to my cards and this was SUPER easy to do just by stamping and cutting the Wings out a couple different times!!  I cut the entire Wing Section out and then cut just the Large Single Wing Image out making sure to color around the edge of the Wings with a Black Soot Distress Marker to give them a seamless and finished look once all of the pieces were layered together!! I used my Color Pencils and Gamsol to color in my Angel and then I added some Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the wings for some added Sparkle!! I Die Cut a Stitched Frame 1 Die Cut from some White Neenah Solar Cardstock and stamped and Embossed the Holy Star Image using some Ranger Platinum Gold Embossing Powder!! Then to make it POP I stamped over it again off setting the Star alittle bit this time using my Versa Fine Black Ink and I LOVE the way it looks!! I added some Clear Embossing Powder over the Top just to finish it off and to make sure that I didn't end up with a smudge from Ink transfer!! =) I then took some Vellum and a White Neenah Solar Cardstock Panel and stitched across the top with my Sewing Machine and some Platinum Metallic Thread!! I then masked my Sentiment so I could repeat the same Platinum Embossing Powder treatment to the Peace word and then I stamped the rest of the sentiment in plain Versa Fine Black Ink and again covered it with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder to make sure I didn't have any Ink smears!! I added some Clear Crystal Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in 4mm size along with some Platinum Sequins from Hazel and Ruby!! I LOVE the little bit of extra Sparkle and FUN that they add and my Card was finished!!

Hopefully you Like my card as much as I do and I hope you'll think about playing along with one of these challenges too!!?? The Guest Designer Challenge ends tonight November 19th at 11:59 pm and the Anything Goes Challenge Deadline is Saturday, November 22nd at 11:59 pm PST !!
