Love To Scrap Challenge Blog--Bling It On

Hello Everyone!
Time for a new challenge on the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog!!!  This challenge will run for two weeks.
The new theme is:

Bling It On!!

Make a project with some stamping and add lots of Bling.  Link up on the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog.

We have two super duper sponsors for the challenge!!!

Prize: 3 images to winner

Prize: $25 gift certificate to online store (good for digital and rubber stamps)
The Paper Nest Dolls

For my design team project, I used a Holiday image from Scribbles Designs.  And, as you can see, I added lots and lots of bling.

Materials List:
Stamp: Holiday Truck 902 digi from Scribbles Designs 
CS: Real Red - Stampin' Up; white; green
Glitter Card - Kreaxions
Copic Markers
Pine Tree Punch - Martha Stewart
Ribbon - Real Red - Stampin' Up
Gold Bead Trim - Michaels
Stickles: Xmas Red, Diamond, Green, Golden Rod
Dimensional Adhesive

  • Make a square card from Real Red CS
  • Layer with the green Glitter Paper 
  • Print the digi out and let the ink dry
  • Color image with Copic Markers

  • Using the Pine Tree Punch, punch on edge of the white CS with the image--punch on a diagonal line
  • Layer with green and then red CS
  • Wrap red ribbon around the top corner
  • Add to card with dimensional adhesive

  • Attach gold bead trim with liquid glue -- I used Fabri-Tac Glue
  • Tie ribbon in bow and add to flat ribbon
  • Add Stickles to the packages, truck, and pine tree punched edge

  • On the inside, punch another piece of white CS and add a fun Holiday sentiment -- This sentiment is from Stampin' Up "Loads of Love"
