Stampendous Saturday **BLING** Challenge!!!

It's the very first Saturday of the month (wait - it's actually the first Saturday of the year!!), and that means the fabulous ladies at Stampendous have a brand new challenge to play along with. This month we are all about bringing in the New Year with some BLING! Glitter, rhinestones, sparkly stickers...you name it. Just make it shiny and get it on your project!

I had a great time this week playing along with our **BLING** challenge!! This card was created while preparing for a class that I am having in Blackfoot, Idaho, on February 3rd.
I used a new to me template called the “pleated front” card. I used a tutorial from the 3D and Fun Fold CD from Technique Junkies.
StampendousM&HClass(3)

Start by stamping the card base before the scoring. Stamp the GORGEOUS border from the Cling Jumbo Romantic Border set with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. Score the card front and added a bit of Zig Glue Pen to highlight a few areas with my favorite Glitter, Silver Halo Glitter. Add a bit of Boss Gloss to the edge of the bottom fold and sprinkled Vintage Plum Embossing Tinsel.

On a separate piece of kraft cardstock stamp the Perfectly Clear Time Flies Set and emboss it with Vintage Plum Embossing Tinsel. Cut out the image and add a light colored cardstock underneath the image. Adhere it to the card front.

Embellish as desired.

Supplies:

Stamps: Perfectly Clear Time Flies Stamp Set, Cling Jumbo Romantic Border (Stampendous)

Paper: Kraft, Natural (Bazzill Basics)

Ink: Boss Gloss (Stampendous); VersaFine Vintage Sepia (Tsukineko)

Extras: Vintage Plum Embossing Tinsel (Stampendous); Silver Halo Glitter (Stampendous); Magenta, Stardust Stickles (Ranger)
