Stampendous Saturday - Sparkly Things

Today is the first Saturday of the month which means it is time for a new Stampendous challenge.  This month's challenge is all about bringing in the New Year with some BLING!  Glitter, rhinestones, sparkly stickers...you name it.

I decided to create an anniversary card that could easily be used for Valentines Day as well:


My bling is on the flower. I dipped it in the beautiful Halo Gold Glitter. The background is stamped with a combination of stamps from the Eiffel Tower using brown ink. The cherub is from the Cherub Wishes set.  I used the Amore sentiment from Amore Frame.

The seam binding was died pink using glimmer mist. The edges of the panels were sponged with a pink and brown dye ink. The images were stamped using Ranger Archival Coffee Ink.


The DT has some fabulous projects to share:


To play along with us: add you direct link to your card (make sure you've loaded it up with tons of BLING) to the linky tool below (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than February 2, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST.  You don't have to use Stampendous products to play along, but we love it when you do!  And as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive this gorgeous Cherub Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set: (Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address)

I hope your weekend plans are going to be fun.  We have one more family celebration for tomorrow and then our holiday celebrations will be finished. The kids will be sad but I will be glad to get the decorations down and all cleaned up.

Thanks for stopping by.
