Stampendous and Add A Little Dazzle Blog Hop Day 1


Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Stampendous and Add A Little Dazzle Blog Hop!  
We are so excited to share our creations with you, using both Stampendous Stamps and Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal.

 
I strayed a bit from my norm and went shabby chic with this card.  The Stampendous image used is from the Jumbo Pinecone Boughs Set.


I used the smaller of the 2 boughs and stamped it repeatedly in the form of a pine tree, starting from the bottom and working my way up, to make a Christmas Tree.  I added lots of shabby chic goodness with the Stampendous Frantage Encrusted Jewel Kit in white. 
The background was sponged in pink; texture was added using drywall tape and kraft ink.  The edges of the panels were distressed and inked as well.  The sentiment is heat embossed in gold on a vellum banner.  The finishing touch was added with the placement of a gold star at the top of the tree, die cut from some Add A Little Dazzle Gold Glimmer Craft Metal
I love the shimmer of the craft metal, gold embossing, and Encrusted Jewels paired with the shabby chic colors and distressing.
