Bling Baby .... Yeah!

Hi Stampers!

Wanna giggle? Picture Austin Powers saying my title... We got BLING BABY...YEAH!! ...LOL! That is totally what I do when I say it to myself - LOL! Today is a new Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge! This week the theme is... BLING BABY! All you need to do is create a project with some bling on it! Who doesn't love sparkles, glitter, gems...all those fun things...NO ONE! So come play along!

Here is my card that I created for inspiration...

For this card I used the Winter Fairy from the Wee Stamps Collection from Whimsy Stamps. After coloring her with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers I used pink glitter glue over her clothes. I also added Liquid Applique on her clothing trim and sprinkled dazzling diamonds on it before heating. There are some dazzling diamonds on the snowflakes in the sky. My other little snowballs are tiny pearls.To create her wings I used irridescent ice on vellum. I am not too sure about my little bird LOL! I had him all colored red and then after I had the rest of my panel done, decided to try and make him look like a baby cardinal.  I added a little black to his face and now it looks like his little face is just dirty instead of like a little cardinal - LOL! Oh well...live and learn... and give your OOP's cards to your Mom! The snowflakes and the sentiment are from the Chillin' stamp set from Tattered Angels.

I also used for the first time mica flakes for the snow. These I think are a bugger to use! I had them stuck all over my fingers - LOL! But they do make a nice chunky, sparkly snow!

Here is a close up of my little fairy so you can see the sparkles...

See my little dirty bird face? LOL! This card is super sparkly and glittery so at least that distracts you a little from the little dirty bird! At least he is cute though :)

For my layout I used this week's Sketch Saturday Layout #228.

I hope you get a chance to show us your blinged out projects and play along in our challenge this week!

Oh that is exciting news, can't wait to see whatcha make! Love this cute whimsey. I think if you just go all black where the lines are on a cardinal that will work for you. Cool that you tried this though. Love the mica flakes snow and you have inspired me to unpack my unused stuff from last year, lol. She is so adorable with her glittered up outfit. Love it.


Love all the bling on your card and the image is so cute. It´s really sweet card. Thank you for playing us at Incy Wincy Challenge!

This is absolutely gorgeous and LOVE the colors!


"You dirty bird!!" Sounds like and old gangster movie! You are right, all the pink bling on your winter fairy distracts me from his little face, I never noticed to tell the truth! I especially like the teeny pearl snowflakes in that really well done sky!
Glad you are playing the "Hip to be Square" Challenge with us - and I hope I see you again next week at Craft Your Passion!
