Silhouette Angel and Dreamy Treat Winner

The way I ended up with this stamp in my collection was a total mistake. I had it on my desk to package for an order. As I was stamping "Thank You" on the customer's invoice in red ink, I dropped the inked stamp on the index of this stamp. Oh well...I think I was just meant to have it, don't you? It IS a beautiful stamp!

I inked the Silhouette Angel with Teal Encore ink and stamped on Teal Prismatics light cardstock. Because it takes Encore ink forever to dry, I embossed it with JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder. It's really a clear embossing powder with beautiful glitter in it. Gorgeous stuff!

I used my Petite Oval Nestabilities to cut and emboss the image as well as the layer behind it. How I ever lived without those I will never know! I used my SU! slot punch to punch through the main panel, then ran May Arts Turquoise Sheer ribbon through the slot and around the card. I first tied a bow there, but I thought it looked funky so gave up on that idea. Instead, I punched 3 snowflakes using my McGill snowflake punches. I smooshed them in the Teal Encore ink, then embossed them with JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder.

I embellished with Kaiser Craft Bliss Pearls . They were the perfect match for the paper and coordinating teal ink!

Here is a closeup of the dimension on the card. I do so wish I could capture the sparkle in the embossing powder! The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Fruitcake collection. I used both the patterned and the solid sides.

So....Do you wanna know who won the JustRite Christmas Ensemble and Harmony Classic Circle III Stamper ? I thought you just came here to see my cards! LOL!

The winner is Lynette! She said:

Your project is awesome!

Hmmm, that is a tough question. If I were being practical, I would say I would like some new Labels Nestabilities. Being impractical, I would say ALL of the new Nestabilities and the few older ones that I don't have, plus ALL of the Copic markers. How's that for a dream? Some more JRS would be awesome, too! :)
