TJ Blogstravaganza - Got Bling?

I've got a whole lot going on not only with my post for the TJ Blogstravaganza card I'm sharing - but I have a few other posts to share today. I don't normally like to post a bunch of things on any given day, but it just so happens I couldn't combine them all into one post - hope you'll bear with me and continue to read the other post....I'll be sharing another release for Artistic Outpost, and the ISC Challenge for this week - I've also got some ISC Blog Candy to give away!

Now on to my post for today, even this cards got a lot going on. Normally I'm not a glittery gal - quite the opposite I must say! But I started blinging up the Cuttlebug piece, so I thought I might as well carry that through with my whole card. To bling the embossed snowflakes, I smooshed my Adirondack Snowcap White Ink onto my embossing, sprinkled on Heat & Stick Powder (or you can use JudiKins Sticky Stuff), heated 'til it melts (be careful not to overheat or you'll burn your card stock), dump on SU's Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, tap off, then heat again to set the glitter. Use distresser tool to rough the edges, layer on White than Ballet Blue base card. I stamped my image from Starving Artistamps DoodleFactory Santa's Sweet Shoppe in Black on white card stock, then colored using my Spica Glitter Pens....See a pattern here....Layered this onto my Ballet Blue panel that I had done the Torn Frames Technique too, then adhered in place on my card.


Ah....what's a little more bling! I took my Felt Flurries, smooshed then into my Versamark Pad, added some Heat & Stick, tap off extra, heat - BE SUPER CAREFUL when heating the felt - it will melt! Pour on the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, tap off, heat set....Add your Rhinestone Brad and your good to go!

I LOVE the bling, Lisa. That was a clever idea to color the embossing and THEN add the glitter. This is a perfect frosty, glittery, snowy winter card!
