Stampendous! Saturday

Ready for another round of Bling for our monthly Stampendous! challenge?  Bring it!  This morning I am sharing one of the cards for my Birds of a Feather Class I am teaching at Enchanted Cottage today.  (If you are local, don't despair...I'm teaching the same class at The Stamping and Scrapbooking Room next month Feb 18th!)

My featured card today has a TON of glitter and bling going on.  I started with Jumbo Cameo Frame stamped in Aged Copper Embossing enamel on Agua cardstock.  After this was heated I went back in and added some Aged Silver embossing enamel to the centers of the flowers using my Versamarker.  The edges were then embossed using Fran's Embedded Jewel Technique with Aged Copper, Tea Stained Mica, and new Blue Glass Glitter.

On a separate brown panel I stamped and embossed Lone Bird in Aged Silver then colored over it with copic markers.  Then I cut this piece out with a Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles die.  The background papers are from Best Creations (which isn't available for my class so we are duplicating the paper with Vintage Mahogany embossing tinsel and Jumbo Romantic Border).

Here's a peek at the other 3 cards for this class if you are interested in taking the class at Betty's next month, or email me for a class kit!

 The second card in this class features Jumbo Songbird stamped and embossed with Clear Bark embossing powder.  I cut out the bird then colored him with Inka Gold by Viva Decor using makeup sponges.  The background stamp, NEW Garden background,  is stamped in Peeled Paint distress ink.

The frame was cut with Polynesian Sails oval from Cheery Lynn Designs on white cs then embossed with Detail gold powder.  Sentiment is from Rose Branch Border and ribbon is by May Arts.

Next is my Jumbo Songbird tag that I shared a couple of weeks back, also using Music score bg, Aged Gold Embossing enamel, Shabby Blue embossing Enamel, and Gilded Mica Fragments.

And finally another card I have already shared, again using Lonebird and also the Edge It dies from Lifestyle Crafts.
