TLC458 Sparkle and Emboss


Hello everyone!! I hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving and survived the Black Friday craziness!!! I only went to one store in the afternoon and regretted it the minute I got out of the car...LOL!!! I think I'll do most of my Christmas shopping online....let the UPS man do all the driving for me!!! Anyway....

It's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast this week and my challenge is sooo easy yet holds a big punch!! We are going to add a little glitter to embossing powder and emboss an image. It really shows up if you use a lighter embossing powder on darker card stock but use what you have and have fun!!!


My card features the poinsettia stamp from Uniko Studio Stamps called Pure Florals: Poinsettia. It was stamped with Versamark onto poppy parade card stock and embossed with a mixture of opaque white embossing powder and glitter. Another poinsettia was stamped, embossed, and the inner part was cutout and popped up over the first poinsettia with foam tape. The sentiment from the same set was embossed with the same mix and the silver pearls and silver cording finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!
