CRAFT STAMPER~Holiday Sparkle

Woohooo! It's time for another Challenge over at

This month, "anything goes" as long as you have used stamping somewhere on your project. Easy peasy right? 

Our prize this month is

For this month's challenge, I created some Christmas Winter Scenes with a whole lot of sparkle!! I must admit, it was hard to capture the glitter in photos, so I did manage one with the flash on...not top quality, but it works. lol

I started with a Bridge roadway stamp from my stash (sorry I don't have a company name as it was from a Goody Bag at a crop)- stamped it onto Bristol smooth  with Memento Toffee Crunch. I then stamped trees (Stampers Anonymous Tree Line and CTMH Frosted Kit) in different shades of greens (Versamagic  Spanish Olive and Versafine Olympia Green) to finish off my scene. 

I then added the panel to a sheet of Sookwang Adhesive and pour on the glitter. I burnished the glitter in place. For this card, I then took a sheet of white CS and used Spellbinders ovals to create the window and adhered it to the glitter panel. A poinsettia and greens from the TH Funky Festive Die set and  a sentiment from Penny Black in Versafine Sepia finished off the card.  

Here's the inside of the first card:

For the second card, I created the same scene the same way as above but kept it to the one layer and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx and used the greens and pinecones from the same Funky Festive set.

Here's the inside of the second card:

Here's my attempt at capturing the GLITTER..Lol:

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today!

PLUS Scrap N' Stamp will also be donating 10% of net sales today (Hop Day) to the Movember foundation- so be sure to check out the main Blog Hop Post for more information on this great cause!

 AND there's a new challenge starting over at the SCRAP N' STAMP FB Group- the theme is to create a MOvember card which features mustaches or a masculine theme! The prize for the challenge this month is a $50 Gift Card for the SCRAP N' STAMP STORE!! Woot Woot!

So here's the card I made using the Impression Obsession Retro Masculine Die  and the Tim Holtz Hipster Cat.

For my background I die cut all the mustaches in the Impression Obsession Retro Masculine Die  set from Kraft and black cardstock that had Stick It on the back. I found it easier to keep them all together, the way they came in the package, to run them thru my Big Shot, instead of handling the smaller dies. I ran them thru about 5 times each. With the Stick it, this allowed me to adhere them to my card panel easily, as I just had to remove the backing paper. 

I then stamped the Hipster Cat onto White Cardstock with Memento Black Ink and colored him with Copics. I then fussy cut him out as I do not have the coordinating die. I die cut two circles using my Stax Cirles from Black and Kraft cardstock and then stamped the Hipster Cat onto the Kraft circle to get all the details I may have lost when I fussy cut him out. I then adhered my Hipster Cat onto my circle piece. I stacked 3 of the mustaches I had die cut from black cardstock together to get some definition- this was quite easy as the pieces still had the Stick It on the back. I then used one of the hats in the die set to give him a sharp hat to go with his retro hipster look. lol. I added  some white gelly roll highlights and added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to his glasses. A Small Talk Sentiment finished off my cat. I then adhered the circles to my card with foam tape. 

For the inside, I kept with the same relative design that I used on the cardfront but used a Tim Holtz Random Thoughts sentiment and another stach and glasses from the die set. ;o)

I hope I've inspired you to get crafty and play along with our MOvember -stache and/or masculine challenge this month- don't forget there is a $50 gift certificate up for grabs for one Randomly chosen participant in the challenge!
