Stampin'Up!s Sparkly & Bright & SC256

This card is for last Wednesday's Sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. I chose not to cut a curved section opting instead to shape the snowflakes into a curve.

I chose Stampin'Up!s Sparkly & Bright stamp set. This is a great little stamp set. I love the cute little snowflake image and the sentiment in it. (oops, the snowflake is from Season of Friendship stamp set)

The snowflake is stamped on Bordering Blue card stock with Encore's Silver ink and Night of Navy Ink. The layers under neath are Night of Navy and Very Vanilla. The Encore Silver ink takes a while to dry. You can use your Heat Tool to speed the process up and set the ink.

The sentiment is also inked on Bordering Blue using Night of Navy ink. A Very Vanilla oval was punched out with the Large Oval punch and attached to the end of the sentiment piece. I trimmed the oval down after I attached it to the sentiment piece and layered it onto Night of Navy card stock.

The large snowflakes were punched using Very Vanilla and Bordering Blue card stock and the Jumbo Snowflake punch. I sponged the Metallic ink over the Very Vanilla card stock. Heat set the silver ink with your Heat Tool.

To give it some bling I added Square Ice brads.

Enjoy! See the recipe below for a supply list and if you need Stampin'Up! supplies to create your own cards just contact me. Remember to check out Stampin'Up!s Extravaganza sale going on.
