merry & bright...

Hello!!  Wow... long time no post, lol!!  Had another one of those weeks.  The spirit was willing, but my ability to get anything done was seriously lacking!  But today was a better day and I actually got the time to make something.  Posting this one to the current Fusion challenge (love the inspiration photo and went with that), CAS(E) this Sketch, Time Out (embossing with a twist of sparkle) and a2z Scrapbooking (anything goes).


I bought this Hero Arts stamp, Color a Wreath, last year and I just love it because there are so many ways you can use this stamp.   Buttons, sequins, coloring... the options are endless.  I decided to emboss the wreath and then fill in all the little circles and bow with Stickles.  I embossed the bow a second time so that I could trim out and pop that one on the wreath.  The sentiment (also embossed) is from the Hero Arts set Joy to All.   There is a whole lot of sparkle going on, don't you think?  For more shine I mounted the finished piece on silver mirror cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; silver mirror; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Ink:  VersaMark watermark ink; Embossing Powder:  Stampin Up! pewter; Glitter glue:  Stickles Silver and Platinum, Stampin Up! Red
