Sparkling Peace, Love, and Joy ~ HSS251

Hello stampers! Today's card is for the next Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #251.  It's a sketch challenge designed by yours truly!  I hope to see you play along with us!

I seem to be drawn to blues these days.  The majority of my cards the last few posts have had blue in them.  It hasn't been a conscious decision, but has just happened organically.  I think I'll put some effort for to not use blue in my next card! 
Anyway, for this card I started by stamping Dapper Denim snowflakes onto white cardstock.  Next, I layered a piece of striped vellum foil over the top.  For my main panel, I stamped the Joy & Love  and snowflake and stars from {Holly Jolly Greetings} in Dapper Denim. I added the Peace the silver glimmer Peace diecut after that.  For the snowflake, I sponged Dapper Denim ink onto one of the wooden snowflakes I had left over from last years holiday catalog. I also added the rhinestone snowflake embellishment which is from two holidays ago.  I'm happy to be using up some of my older supplies!
lastly I scattered some rhinestones around for extra bling!

The whole front panel is mounted on extra heavy weigh cardstock just because that snowflake embellishment carries so much weight.

Make sure you hop over the the HSS blog and check out my fellow designers projects.  They are awesome as usual!

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

  1. Stunning! Love how you combined the vellum paper with the stamped background. I'm casing your card. What a great way to use the vellum.
