Glitter Embossing

A month from today Christmas will be over. Wow. Time fleets so quickly - make sure you are doing things each day that you LOVE! And I LOVE to stamp!

Today's Splitcoaststampers Technique Challenge I am hosting is all about sparkle! It's called "Glittery Embossing" and basically puts glitter glue on your dry embossed cardstock.  See details and instructions on how to do this HERE.

My sample is made using Hambo Stamps' adorable Snowmen (0316) and Let It Snow (1518) images.
I stamped on Georgia Pacific White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then colored in a little using Copic markers. I added Diamond Stickles to the sky for snowflakes. The sentiment is stamped with Baja Breeze (Stampin' Up!) ink and both were then cut out with Spellbinders Circle dies.

I hope you will check out the challenge and play along!

Stamps: Let It Snow - 1518 and Snowmen - 0316 by Hambo Stamps 
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Georgia Pacific White, Merry Little Christmas DP (MME) 
Ink: Baja Breeze, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics 
Accessories: doily, pink gems (Studio G), Spellbinders dies, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Diamond Stickles
