Merry Monday 127

Monday, September 22, 2014

I have been a bad stamper because I've been neglecting my stamp room all week!  One thing after another prevented me from getting in there and doing anything productive but Sunday I marched myself in there, sat down and made three cards!

The first is a card for the Merry Monday challenge where Kathy has given us a little Christmas Bingo where we get to choose the elements we want.  I went diagonal and chose Sparkle, Ribbon or Twine, and Buttons or Brads.



Now, you're going to have to believe me when I say that there is sparkle on this card because I know it doesn't show up in the photo.  The "merry" was die cut from some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper which is just chock full of sparkle but sadly you can't see it.  And to make matters worse, I stamped the sentiment in white pigment ink then embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and all that shimmer doesn't really show up either.  

Over at As You See It there was a great sketch so I used that as my layout.  It had a nice CAS look and I thought the bottom of the sketch would be a great place to showcase the "merry" die cut.


The Merry Makers over at Merry Monday have some beautiful cards to show you so make sure you check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

It's so hard to photograph sparkle and shine. Love the blue and white and as pretty as this is in the photo, I know it must be awesome IRL! Have a wonderful week, Jen!

Midnight Muse and sparkle is a winning combination and I love how you've give the blue so much "white" space on this gorgeous card.

I just love what you did with our sketch over at As You See It Challenges! I can just imagine how gorgeous it is with the sparkle, because it is amazing without! Thanks for playing with us at AYSI this week!
