PLUS there's a challenge over at the SCRAP N' STAMP FB Group- the theme is ALL THAT SPARKLES...so get out your glitter, shimmer ...anything that sparkles!!
So here's the card I made using a Spellbinder's Snowflakes Die as a stencil, Nuvo Glimmer Paste and Distress Oxides.
I started with Smooth Bristol Paper and applied Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides. I love this color combo for an ombre effect! I used one of the curved MFT- Basic Edge dies on the lower half.
I then die cut a Spellbinder's snowflake die onto cardstock and used it as a stencil with Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste to create that sparkly effect, I masked off the center before I applied the past so I could add my sentiment. I used "MERRY" from the Concord & 9th Christmas Cottage set and stamped it onto the center of the snowflake with Versafine Crimson Red ink. I then die cut the "Christmas" Sentiment from Silver glitter paper using the Birch Press Christmas Sugar Script Die. I also die cut it out from White CS several times and layered them all together to give it more dimension. I then adhered the 2 panels onto my card base with fun foam and added a strip of the silver Glitter paper in between the 2 layers.
For the inside of my card, I used the same Distress Inks from my card front with TH Mini Weathered Winter Snowflakes stamps. A sentiment from an older Cornish Heritage Farm stamp set.

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:
