My project features the Christmas Cottage rubber stamp from Stampendous and I've used an Add a Little Dazzle craft metal sheet in Brushed Bronze to create the holly leaves.  The image was stamped on some Christmas designer paper.  Although it's hard to see there a bit of snow glitter on the roof and trees.

Then I die cut the leaves and used a stylus and mat to shape them.  Adds great dimension don't you think?  After they were all adhered with foam adhesive, I also added some Stickles holly berries to match the color in the designer paper I've used.  And finally the panel was matted and added to my card base.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Soft Suede, Basic Black and MME Lost & Found Christmas
Stamps:  Stampendous Christmas Cottage
Ink:  Ranger Archival Jet Black
All the other stuff:  Tim Holtz Holiday Lampost Sizzix die, AALD Brushed Bronze craft metal sheet, stylus, mat, Fired Brick Distress Stickles

Normally, this is our weekly challenge day and so to keep with tradition we are doing the Stampendous Blog Hop and Dazzling Diva Challenge #43.  Join us today, be inspired, and show off your beautiful creations this week. Let’s get started!

My project features the Christmas Cottage rubber stamp from Stampendous and I've used an Add a Little Dazzle craft metal sheet to create a panel for my gift bag.   The Scarlet Red craft metal sheet was stamped in StazOn with the Stampendous image.  Once that was completely dry, I used my refiner from the Add a Little Dazzle Embossing Tool Kit to outline all the leaves, berries and pinecones.  Next, I flipped the craft metal sheet over onto my suede and used a combination of the tools from the kit to "puff up" the leaves, berries and pinecones from the backside of the metal.  I then added some of the backing paste (yes, that's in the tool kit too) to both areas.  This ensure that your "puffed up" areas of metal stay just that way!  I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper and then added three shades of Stickles to the "puffed up" area.

The panel was adhered to my burlap bag with a Scor-Pal double-sided adhesive sheet.  A couple of buttons with some twine finished off the bag.

Here's what I used:
Ink:  StazOn Black
Stamps:  Stampendous Christmas Cottage
All the other stuff:  Add a Little Dazzle Scarlet Red craft metal sheet, burlap bag, Add a Little Dazzle Embossing Tool Kit, Corner Chomper, Scor-Pal double-sided adhesive sheet, MFT buttons, misc. twine, Peeled Paint Distress Stickles, Cinnamon Stickles and Xmas Red Stickles

Dazzling Diva 42 Give Thanks

Wednesday, September 10, 2014


Hello my sweet friends!  Time for another Add a Little Dazzle Dazzling Diva Challenge!  Isn't this some gorgeous fall inspiration:


Fall means I can use leaves..and I love leaves on my cards :)  The craft metal sheets from Add a Little look awesome with all the fabulous leaf dies available!

I've started out with a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper and used the Acrylic Block Technique.  Then some drips of gold Color Shine, a smattering of sequins and of course the large die cut leaf.  I've used a Golden Glimmer craft metal sheet.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow and Ranger Watercolor Paper
Ink:  Ranger Archival Jet Black, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, Peeled Paint Distress Ink and Pine Needles Distress Ink
Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations HCPC3327 Rustic Autumn Wheel
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Add a Little Dazzle Golden Glimmer craft metal sheet, Cheery Lynn Designs D135 Dimensional Large Leaves #1, Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine, Simon Says Stamp sequins, acrylic block, large Post-It Notes, ATG

Would love to see you join us for this fun challenge!  Use of  AALD craft metal sheets is not a requirement to play along, but we'd love to see you use them!  There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs.  Add a Little Dazzle craft metals sheets are available here.

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
