Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop: ABC, 123 Fun!!

Good morning!  With summer rapidly coming to an end (much too soon in my opinion) I’m getting ready for my holiday catalog preorder to arrive (later this week) and know when it arrives I’m going to be completely distracted with new goodies so I’m continuing to enjoy all our great annual catalog items now.  Today over on the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration blog it’s time for our monthly blog hop and this month’s theme is ABC, 123 which means making a project using one stamp set, two designer series paper, and three accessories.  One of the first sets I had to get was Marquee Messages and I had an idea for this card that is completely blinged out so I decided now was the perfect time.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number #6 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Darcy at Dj's Stampin' Place. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

I started with Smoky Slate cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of DSP from the Pop of Pink Speciality Designer Series Paper package, what was matted with Emerald Envy cardstock.  Next I added another piece of Smoky Slate DSP from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.

For the stamped image I used the Marquee Messages stamp set and stamped the large image using Basic Black on Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Emerald Envy cardstock and then used Paper Snips to cut out all three pieces.  A Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker was used to color in the words on the Whisper White piece.  I used my Gold Wink of Stella Pen (love how easy it is to add a touch of bling with these pens) to color in the elements on the left side of the sign as well as one of the star bursts on the Emerald Envy piece.  I used dimensionals to attach the Melon Mambo sign arrow as well as a star cut out of Gold Glimmer Paper using the Big Shot and Stars Collection Framelits.  The final touch was to add rhinestones to each of the circles on the arrow to mimic the lights on a marquee sign and are really what puts this card over the top.

This card really brings a smile to my face and the sparkle and shine play a huge part (I know, big shocker!!) and will be great to just let that extra special person know how you feel about them.  I know if I received this card (or whenever I get a card with sparkle it seems extra special and makes me happy!
