HSS WOW it UP Challenge #43

GOOD MORNING STAMPERS!!! How are you this morning!? I am so thrilled for this weeks challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I love taking something simple and GLAMIN’ it up a bit. I took a simple card that I had from YEARS earlier and added a bit of glitz and glam here and there to make it a WOW card. :)
If you can see from the side the first thing I did was add a layer of embossed card stock (using the impression pads for the Big Shot). Then after I embossed it I added crystal effects on top of the patterns and THEN I added glitter a top of the CE- you do have to allow like 20-30 min. for this to dry before putting your card together.
You can see that I used the Crystal Effects and the glitter to embellish the center stamped image as well. These images are from my FAVORITE set- Baroque Motifs. I also added a flat back pearl from my retired pretties kit to the center of my image.
You can hopefully see the height that I am able to achieve using the crystal effects which is something that I LOVE!! I usually have like 2-3 bottles of that stuff around at all times!

I finished off the card with an adorable sentiment and punched it out with my wide oval punch and embellished that with 2 oval scallop punches out of real red card stock.

I hope that you enjoyed this weeks project and head over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to play along with us. Show us a simple project that you have created (it doesn’t have to be a NEW one) and then add some WOW to it and share it with us all! I hope that you all have an AWESOME THANKSGIVING, and know that I am SO THANKFUL for all the blessings and adversities that I have had this year. Until next time~ TTFN

We Love to Hear From You
