Sisterhood of Crafters - Make it Sparkle!

Hello dear friends!
Here we are at the start of a new year and that means
it is time for a new challenge over on the Sisterhood of Crafters Blog!

Today, Terri is our hostess and the theme she has chosen is

MAKE IT SPARKLE



Last year while at the Adventures in Stamping Convention
held each spring in Akron, OH, I spotted these beautiful
image sheets and the glitter film that you attach
to the back of them to make them sparkle beyond belief.

These sheets are from Stamp On It 

Here's a link to the Vintage Hues Image Sheets

THIS is the exact sheet today's image came from.

 After adhering the glitter sheet to the back of my image sheet, I cut the four images apart
then attached each individual image panel to white card stock so that the image really
POPS before designing any of my card creations.


 I thought I'd try something a little different in my design
and that was to place my die frame OVER my image vs behind it.
I popped up the outside frame edge which helped
to bring more depth to the overall design.

The die I've used is an older Memory Box Frame Die
called 'Scattered Snowflake Frame' (#99222).

 Here's another angle view ...



I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous creations to help inspire you ... 
be sure to pop over and check them out!

 See you there!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

Stunning card, Darlene! Cardinals are one of my favorite birds, especially in winter. I have one that stays very close to me while I am filling the bird feeders and chirps at me till I'm done. So cute! I really love how you put the frame over the image. It reminds me of a window that we are looking through to the image beyond. Great card! Happy New Year, Sis!!

Wow, these are gorgeous! Love the snowflake die too. It all works so well together, looks like the image and die were made for each other :-)

Absolutely stunning in every way. Great photo design and I love all the sparkle. Adding the die cut snowflakes over it really makes for a gorgeous look.

Such a magnificent sparkle that you captured, Darlene! Love the focal picture of cardinals o the mailbox. Those with the snowflakes make the perfect wintry scene and the sparkle takes it over the top! Love it!
