Outlines Sparkle and Shine Challenge

Our team challenge this week for Outlines Rubber Stamp is Sparkle and Shine.  One of the fabulous products that Outlines carries is Swarovski Crystals and we are showcasing them on our desings this week.  Please stop by and visit the rest of the incredibly talented team and see what they have created for you.



For my card, I started with my Heart Daisy Square, stamping it twice, on gold and orange card stock, with Versacolor black ink and then embossing it with clear embossing powder.  I also stamped and embossed Thank You Square Small on gold card stock.  I cut the center Daisy square out of the orange card stock, mounted it on brown card stock and then mounted that on the gold panel, again layering it on to more brown card stock.  Outlines also carries a really cool product called Picksey Pick Ups, and they are just perfect for use with small gems.  If you have never seen them, check them out here Picksey Pick Tutorial  So using my Picksey, I added size 12 Sun Crystals to the dots around the Daisy square, they perfectly matched the dot size.  Using Sakura Glaze pens, I added some color to the flowers, leaves and dots on the pot as well as the hearts in the corners.  I love these pens as they dry to a shiny gloss finish.  I also added size 9 Sun Crystals to the Thank You Square.  This card has lots of shine and sparkle in person and some dimension as I popped up both stamped layers.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
