Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Oct 18-24

This is actually the next to last challenge for Paper Smooches SPARKS blog.  It is sad. :(  I have really enjoyed these challenges because I love Paper Smooches products so much.  I think I read that they may have another challenge blog for Paper Smooches but I don't have any details, but I hope it happens!!  This challenge is Anything Goes, which is one of my favorite challenges because you can really do anything!  HA

I wanted to make a holiday card and this is what came to mind.

There is no stamping on this card!  All of the images are die cuts, using Paper Smooches Ornaments and Christmas Words 2 dies.  After die cutting the ornament I colored it with Copics, and covered it with Wink of Stella and glossy accents.  The top of the ornament (I'm not sure what that is called) is heat embossed with platinum embossing powder.  The sentiment is heat embossed with glitter embossing powder, and I used a colored gem to dot the i. The holly leaves and berries are Copic colored and I coated the berries with red Stickles. This is amazingly shiny IRL, I wish the photo showed it more. This took a little time because of the drying time involved, but I really like the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies: Dies: Paper Smooches Ornaments and Christmas Word Dies 2. Embossing Powder: Ranger Platinum embossing powder and Ranger Red Glitter embossing powder.
