Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?
For my card I used Pilgrim Thanksgiving Stamp set and I love it :-) 

Absolutely love this image sitting on the Burlap background!

The font is lovely and the Black Detail embossing powder... Perfect!
Little touches of glitters made it dimensional.
How I created it:
1.     Cut card base at 5” x 5” from Kraft stock, adhere layer of designer paper cut at 4.75” x 4.5” with Tear-ific Tape.
2.     Die cut using the largest SB labels two die from Burlap Paper. Using that same die trace the outside edge on kraft paper and cut with scissors, this is to give your burlap die cut a matting with the same shape. Adhere again with Tear-ific Tape.
3.     Using dimensional foam tape to adhere the die cut layers to card base, leaving space at the top for embellishments.
4.     Stamp, color with water color pencils and fussy cut image from Pilgrim Thanksgiving. Add a touch of Fire Engine Red glitters to the apples and Autumn Medley glitters to the Turkey tail feathers.
5.     Stamp using VersaMark ink pad and heat embossed sentiment from Pilgrim Thanksgiving stamp set using Black Detail embossing powder on Kraft cardstock.
6.     Adhere both fussy cut image and sentiment on the Burlap die cut using Fabri-tac glue.
  1. Die cut Dainty Bow from Burlap Paper and add acrylic apple button as bow center. Adhere top center of card.
Thank you for playing along and check out the other designers awesome projects!

Hi bloggers :-)
Steff here with a card share featuring Sparkle N Sprinkle Daisies stamp set which is so pretty with all its swirls.  

Absolutley LOVE all the sparkle from the embossing powder and glitters!

More close up :-)

What I did:

1.     Choose three sizes from SB Grand Labels Four dies. From the pink cardstock cut your card base using the largest of the three sizes chosen and the smallest for the image. Die cut the white cardstock using the middle size die for the image matting.

2.     On the smaller pink die cut, using VersaMark embossing ink pad, stamp and heat embossed Daisies with Mulberry Star embossing powder.

3.     Color in flowers and daisies using Dimensional Glue with Daisy, Cloud Nine and LuauGreen glitters.

4.     Adhere pink cardstock with image to white cardstock for a contrasting layer. Next adhere to the pink card base using dimensional foam tape.

5.     Stamp sentiment with Versa Magic “Midnight Black” ink. Choose an appropriate size SB labels four die cut to fit sentiment from Daisies stamp set. Adhere to card front using dimensional foam tape.
6.  Accent each layer of card using Ranger’s Liquid Pearl in colors white and pink.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you give these glitters and embossing powders a try :-)

Hi there :-)
It's never too early to think and plan Christmas cards for our love ones, so I have a beautiful stamp set to share with you for inspiration.
 Card created using A Savior stamp set #00-637P5
The image sits on Vellum which I love.
 See the beautiful Cloud Nine glitter!
 Love this Super Thick White embossing powder!

Lovely message from A Savior stamp set.
How I created it:
1.     Cut white cardstock measuring 5”x5.75” and scored at 2.75” Your card front panel will be shorter than your back panel.
2.     On a strip of white cardstock punch border using Martha Stewart’s Floral Vine punch and adhere to the front panel with the border edge positioned off the card front panel.
3.     Using Tear-ific Tape and Cloud Nine glitter to create a glitter background as shown in the SNS “Amazing Striped Backgrounds” Technique on the card front.
4.     To accent the punched border, use Brushable glue with applicator and Cloud Nine glitter.
5.     Cut two frames from white cardstock using Tim Holtz Vintage Cabinet Die/Movers and Shapers, heat embossed front frame with VersaMark ink pad and Super Thick White embossing powder.
6.     Cut Vintage Cabinet die from Vellum, stamp and heat embossed image from  “A Savior” stamp set using Black Detail embossing powder. Color image with Kimberly Water Color Pencils and then adhere between both frames. Adhere frame top center of card front.
7.     Using Brushable glue and Cloud Nine glitter to accent the Halos in the image and Glodenrod glitter for the star.
8.     Stamp and heat embossed sentiment with Black Detail on white cardstock fashioned in a fishtail ribbon and accent both ends with flatback pearls.
