ODBD Sneak Peek, CC342, and MORE!

Happy Tuesday!  I am hosting the SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC342) this week and we are having a Cherry Expresso Party!  Check out the link to find out how to play along and to find out about the fabulous dessert option! 

I am sneak peeking a couple new sets to be released on the 1st by ODBD called Christmas Tree Collage and Christmas Door!  I pretty much stamped the whole image in Ranger Walnut Stain and highlight colored with glitter!    I have started doing some accent coloring with glitter. It is fun and so easy to use with the quickie glue pen! The tree is actually covered in a kaleidescope Recollections tinsel glitter and looks really sparkly and textural.   The tinsel glitter captures different light colors.   The ornaments are glittered colored in some Recollections Bell and Icicle colors. The frame and flourishes are glittered colored in  Recollections silver. SO MUCH GLITTER!

 Here is a close up of the dimension and loads of sparkle.  I just love this new Christmas Tree Collage image for making some quick cards with lots of impact!  I topped this card off with a wonderful sentiment from the Christmas Door set.  I used one of the tags in the Spellbinder's Tag Trio Three.  If you are looking for flatter cards for cheaper mailing, the sentiment can be stamped inside.  I dusted off my crimper for some added background texture.  I added a few layers and popped up the collage panel, but those extras can be eliminated for easier mailing as well.  I finished with a seam binding bow and silver metallic bow with curly ques and silver pearl!  Try as I might, I am not sure I can personally eliminate the bow! LOL!  

While I may not always list the Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, and Scotch ATG adhesive, these are part of my cardmaking and are as basic as cardstock and ink for creating finished cards.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
