At stamp club, I issue a challenge each month, in hopes that the gals will actually use their purchases, lol! This month’s challenge was to “bling it up” in some way. I loved everyone entries – they were all different and creative! But Jean’s card really got a WOW from everyone, and I asked if I could show it here on my blog. I’ve seen a lot of cards made with the most popular stamp at the moment, the Medallion stamp. But I’ve never seen it look this good! You have to know that this photo (and I took several, both inside and outside, to try to capture the true sparkle, and failed) does not even begin to do this card justice! Please click the photo for a larger view.
Jean first stamped in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with Heat & Stick powder and heat set it, then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds while still hot. Then, a quick heating again just to set, and voilà, instant bling! Love it – thanks, my friend! Edited to add by the designer: Just a quick clarification, especially if you want to CASE it. I used White Craft ink and not Versamark. I did try that at first but got more impact with the White ink.
Thank you all for stopping by today!
