Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello and Happy Friday!!!  First off I want to thank Lori for asking me to host this weeks Free For All Friday.  For my challenge I would like to see some bling, sparkle or glitter on your project.  It can be something as simple as adding some pearls like I did or you can go over the top and really glam it up!  Most important is I want you to have fun!!  Here is my sample.


I used Merry Tree stamped with Memento rose bud and then cut out with a spellbinders die.  Before removing the image from the die I sponged some angel pink around the outside edges.  The patterned paper is My Minds Eye Be Merry.  The card base is Pure Luxury base weight Ivory.  The patterned paper is matted on Pure Luxury Lipstick Red.  I finished up with some silk ribbon and a pearl flourish. 

Brenda’s Tip:

I like leaving the sentiment off the front of cards if I don’t have a specific person/reason for the card.  That way when I need a thank you instead of say a happy holidays card I can quickly add a sentiment and I am ready to go.

I look forward to seeing your creations!  Remember have fun!!!

Beautiful card! You have set the bar high!

What a gorgeous creation Brenda!  Love it!  And thanks for hosting for us this week!

Loving those pinks AND the bling......awesome to play!  :)

Yeah Brenda!  Bring on the Bling Baby!  WOO HOO!  Love that paper by MME BTW - looks great with that tree, I have both of those items, will have to CASE this!!  Thanks!  Look forward to playing later once my hubby has left on his business trip.

Your card is a beauty.  HERE is mine, with its bling. I hope it is okay!

What a gorgeous card. I only use minimal amount of bling and perhaps I should try to do more with this challenge. We shall see.

What a beautiful card! Great design and great paper choice!

I tried to bring on the bling! Here is my card entitled The Reason. I love the new Stamp TV kit with the two sets of stamps. Wonderful designs.

This is gorgeous! Great idea about the sentiment, as well.

Brenda this is such a pretty card.  I love untraditional colors on Christmas cards and pink fits that bill.  It's cool how your stamped image and DP coordinate.  And that's a great idea to leave off the sentiment so you're always ready with a card for any occasion.

Oh, I love this challenge. Who doesn't like some bling?? Love your card Brenda, hope I have time to play along. Soooo many possibilities!!

Beautiful bling, sponging and bow!!! Congratulations on hosting Brenda!!!
