Allison's Jingle Belles Sketch

The fabulous Allison of Stampin' When I Can is the guestie this challenge at jingle belles, and even if I weren't already playing along all year I'd have to hop in & play with her prompt! She's designed a sketch, and I made 2 cards with it:


Supplies: papers from Fancy Pants; Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder; Basic Grey chipboard; sentiment from PTI; Versamark; Moonstone EP from Stampendous; rhinestones from Dollarama; Pearl Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels


Oooooooh, shiny! Sparkly! 


Supplies: papers & chipboard pieces from Prima; sentiment from PTI; Vintage Photo distress ink; rhinestone from Dollarama

The first card is definitely my favourite :) Although the rhinestone strips were an afterthought, and getting them lined up partly underneath that raised strip? Not my favourite procedure, but worth it in the end. 

Here's Allison's sketch: 


Sooooo easy & versatile. I can see me playing again before the challenge ends next Wednesday. 
xoxo,
Jessi

Fantastic cards, and I LOVE the distressing on the first one! Sometimes I have to go back and add something to a card later, and boy is it a pain sometimes--especially when it has to go under something. Great job on that bling! :)

That is a great sketch--may have to play along. Love both cards--totally different looks, but both are really neat! Have to agree, the rows of gems are super!

I love the non-traditional papers and colors used. You always make your cards shine even more than they already do with the bling! Love it!

These are great, Jessi! I really like the colours and the two distinctly different approaches.
