Sweet Stamps #23 Silver and Gold


 All month long Sweet Stamps is having a Christmas in July sale, all Christmas and Winter stamps are 25% off.  So the design team will be using these stamps all month to give you inspiration.  Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is

SILVER AND GOLD

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree
 This is my first card. I made two for the challenge couldn't decide which one to use. I used Snowflake #2 Bold, Medium Snowflake, Snowflake Small stamping them with Versa Mark and embossing with Queen's Gold on white cardstock. They are cut out and pop dotted. The greeting is Season's Greetings stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with silver.  Cheery Lynn's Snowflake Flurries embossed the silver Star Dreams.  The gold is also Star Dreams.  The snowflakes and gems are from my stash.  The finished size is 4.25" x 5.50".

For my second card I stamped Bells with Bows with Versa Mark and embossed it with silver.  It is colored with markers and glitter glue for some sparkle. The greeting is above but embossed with Queens Gold.  The gold is Nellies Dot Circles and I used a red Viva Decor Pearl Pen for the pearls.  The ribbon is from my stash too!!  The finished size is 4.25" x 5.50".
