House of Cards: Use Glitter and/or Color/Photo Inspiration


Hi, friends, and happy 2015!!!  I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that your new year will be amazing, too. :)  I'm here today with my first card of the new year for House of Cards!  This month, we'd like you to USE GLITTER &/OR USE THE COLOR/PHOTO INSPIRATION.  Here's the inspiration for you...

glittered (blues)

I'm not quite done with winter crafting just yet, so I decided to create a card that could be used any time for any reason during winter months, even for a Christmas card.  Here's my card...


I started by stamping the snowman and his winter garb from a set by Close To My Heart with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I chose to stamp on specialty paper and then paper piece the hat and scarf.  I jazzed up these two elements by adding liquid pearls by Ranger, chalk marker by Stampin' Up!, and glitter gel pen by Sakura.  I've got a video tutorial all about that on the challenge blog and HERE on my YouTube channel. :)  He was punched out and layered onto some silver glitter paper that was accented with more liquid pearls.


After the focal image was done, I turned to the sentiment.  I stamped one from Inspired By Stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the same specialty paper.


I then layered these elements onto a panel of turquoise glitter paper from DCWV matted with turquoise card from Stampin' Up!.  This was matted onto a card base made with the same elements.  A few enamel dots from Freckled Fawn finished the card.


That's all for me today!  I hope you join our challenge over at House of Cards and I wish you and yours a very happy new year!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
