Bling it On… and A Christmas Card too!

Today’s cards were originally made for a creative-sketches challenge.  I used the sketch… but then totally forgot to use the technique specified for that challenge!  So… back to the drawing board I went…

This one is CAS in Marina Mist and Whisper White.  CAS, Bling, rhinestones, creative-sketches, sharon_field, get_well, square_lattice, big shot, northern_flurry, dasher, Holiday, Christmas, sharon_Field, createdbyu_blogspotThe Whisper White card stock background was embossed using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Big Shot Machine, and a narrow strip of Marina Mist Card Stock was punched with the open scallop border punch before stepping it up a notch with an 1/8” Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon and bow.   But, the card was just “ok”…I even stamped the inside of the card…

Rhinestones were added along the narrow 1/8” Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon

Even the hand tied bow got a little ‘bling’ of it’s own.

And of course, each stamped flower was blinged at the base of the top bud.

Another CAS quick card… this one features Dasher, one of my very favorite single wood mount stamps!

I made this card while experimenting with the Shiny Faux Metal technique, but never shared the card made with the embossed shiny faux metal sample

Of course, Dasher needed a little bling of his own, so tiny Basic Jewel Rhinestones were added to his graceful antlers.CAS, Bling, rhinestones, creative-sketches, sharon_field, get_well, square_lattice, big shot, northern_flurry, dasher, Holiday, Christmas, sharon_Field, createdbyu_blogspot

And rhinestones added, too for the greeting from the Bright Christmas stamp set.

Really quick post today… I’m writing 6 tutorials and up to my eyeballs!  Tomorrow I’m bringing you a new Utah Divas International color challenge Smile  I hope you’ll stop back by to say hi!

Hugs,

Sharon
