Pink Sunset Season's Greetings

I knew as soon as I saw the Silent Night prompt at Merry Monday that I would use my favourite tree stamp of all time to create a night scene. I decided to go a different route with it by including the Kraft Journal's glitter challenge and the Jingle Belles' Pink Christmas theme.


Supplies: Stampin' Up Lovely as a Tree; Stampendous dots & sentiment; Versamark; Pirate Gold and Kaleidoscope embossing powders from Stampendous' distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Antique Linen,  and Worn Lipstick; kraft card stock; Tattered Angels gold glimmer mist; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Studio G clear glitter glue


It's SO SPARKLY! I began by masking an area for the moon and blending the distress inks together. I stamped the trees (using generational stamping) and then stamped the greeting & the snowflake dots & embossed them. The snow drifts were made by tearing paper, inking the edges, and then painting them with glitter glue. I very lightly sponged Antique Linen ink across the sky. The kraft cardstock was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and then generously sprayed with the Gold glimmer mist. It is truly super sparkly :)

xoxo,
Jessi

oh HOLY WOW!!! it's not gonna be a SILENT anything whenever this amazing card is in the room, missus! there will be waaaaaaaaay too much "oohing" and "aaaaaahing" and possibly the sounds of someone trying to erase your name and put their own on b/c they are SO JEALOUS... but that would probably only be at my house lol!
