ENJOY-THe Sweeter Things In Life--Sparkle and Shine Challenge

August 1, 2015

It's time for an amazing new challenge at Sparkle and Shine!  This week we have an inspiration photo for you to play along with.  We can't wait to see what you create!  

Our amazing sponsor is Pretty Pink Posh and the winner will receive a $25 gift card to their shop. 

My card was created using a white card base.  I used a piece of patterned paper from the Papertrey Inks-Still Life Summer Kit.  I trimmed it using rectangle stitched dies.  The next layer is white card stock cut with a rectangle die.  I stamped it with the Gorgeous Grunge stamps set from Stampin' Up! with Tangerine Tango ink.  I did use the stampin' off technique for a lighter shade of orange.   I used a stitched circle die to cut a frame from the white card stock.  I stamped three orange slices (in the kit) using Tangelo Twist ink and Tangerine Tango ink on white card stock.  I cut them with the matching die from the kit.

The sentiment was stamped in the bottom corner with black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I stamped Butter to Orange Ombre ink from Hero Arts on a piece of white card stock and cut the "Enjoy" sentiment five times.  I stacked them up to give extra dimension to the sentiment.  Gold metallic thread was wrapped around the card base and oranges slices for extra sparkle.  Gorgeous clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added for shine! 

Hope you are able to join us in this challenge. Check out all of the beautiful cards from the design team on the blog here!
