Simon Says Challenge - Sparkle

Good morning ! Goodness, what a wet and blustery one it is too ! How things change so quickly. I was scraping the ice off the car yesterday morning !

Anyway, snuggle up warm in your craft room and come and join us in our challenge over at Simon Says Challenge ! We have a lovely one for you this week, SPARKLE ! The DT are showcasing Whiff of Joy stamps this week and also heat embossing. If you have any Whiff of Joy stamps and/or the equipment for heat embossing, we would love to see what you can come up with but its not necessary for this challenge.

The DP's are by Memory Box.

The image is a Whiff of Joy image. The swirls around the outside edge are also by Whiff of Joy.Simon Says Stamp has a great range of Whiff of Joy stamps including lots of Christmas ones. I added some picket fence stickles as snow and also dabbed some on the holly.

The holly was punched from a Martha Stewart Holly Punch. The berries are red wooden beads I found in my stash.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances transfer. I see that you can also buy the same sentiment set in a set of clear stamps too which would be really handy. You can see the stamp set here.

The heat embossing is around the edge of the patterned paper. I inked the edges with Versamark ink and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. It is so sparkly in real life !

There is a fantastic prize of a $25 shopping spree in the Simon Say Stamp Store for the lucky winner so I hope you can come and join us !

Thank you for your visit today and for any comments you may leave, they always mean so much.

Take care and be *sparkly* !

Love 'n' hugs,
