Stampendous and Add A Little Dazzle Blog Hop Day 5

Hello Everyone and welcome to our Grand Finale Blog Hop Day 5!
The Add A Little Dazzle and Stampendous Design Teams have one last round of inspiration for you today!  Hop along for a chance to win!


This card was a series of happy accidents!  I started by stamping the gorgeous evergreen bough in Versamark on Cherry Cobbler cs, and embossed it in gold.


 I wanted to make my branches snow covered but when I poured the Frantage Embossing Powder on the cs, it rolled around.  I was going to gather it back up, but noticed how much the large granules looked like a snowfall!  So rather than have snowy branches, I added falling snow.
I stamped the Stampendous Sentiment in Versamark on Glimmering Gold Craft Metal and embossed it in Early Espresso ep.  I wanted to get my metal nice and smooth, so I decided to run it through the Big Shot. What I did not realize is that when I did this, it would press my sentiment into the metal, giving it a wonderful etched or engraved look. Well, I LOVE it!  As this is a Christmas card, I am linking it up to the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog- "Holiday"

Make sure you visit the rest of the DT team blogs~
 

And you still have time to take advantage of Add A Little Dazzle's Stampendous Special- you get Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets in the colors that the Add A Little Dazzle Design Team used in their projects this week.  In addition, you will also receive 1 pack of 25 gift package pillows in either large gift size or party favor size.  If you just have to try out these metal sheets, you can shop HERE.


And lastly, we cannot forget about the prizes!
