Just add Sparkle


I used part of the tree stamp from White Christmas
and stamped with Marina Mist.

The snowdrifts were sponged over some torn sticky notes used as masks.

When all the ink was dry, I smacked the whole piece with VersaMark, 
sprinkled Heat and Set Powder, heat embossed and sprinkled
Dazzling Diamonds over the sticky. 
I heat embossed again to make sure it was all melted together.

It's very sparkly!

Merry Monday

This is just lovely Bonnie! I had forgotten all about that technique of putting the whole image against your Versamark pad and then heat embossing with the Dazzling Diamonds...definitely VERY sparkly!! :0) Love the soft blue color too...makes winter almost seem lovely!

Liz said...

Beautiful card, Bonnie. I've never tried this technique to add all the sparkle - now on my 'to do' list! xx

LeAnne said...

Ah, one of my favorite techniques that I haven't done in AGES! Just gorgeous!

Pat said...

This is beautiful Bonnie and the technique is something I haven't tried either so will be giving it a go I think. I love the falling snow embossing in the background and the little tags with the baker's twine too. x

Di said...

Wow Bonnie, a stunning card. And a trick I've never tried either - such a sparkly result.

Hi Bonnie! LOVE this sparkly creation, especially as I sit here in this humidity and heat today - makes me feel cooler just looking at it! And the red and white twine is the perfect embellishment with the cool blues and whites! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

Yay for the sparkle on this beauty. Bought some of the SU Diamond product, and keep forgetting to try it. Looks so lovely on this one, and a wonderful choice of stamps to use this technique. TFS

I can see the sparkle from here! It is a fabulous card... almost makes me want to start on Christmas/winter cards. I guess I'll resist the feeling since I have all the H'ween stuff out right now.
