PPA 72 Fashion Inspiration--Mystery Blog Candy

Welcome to Winter White--Our Pals Paper Arts Fashion Inspiration! We also have BLOG CANDY this week, so be sure and participate. For the prize this month, participating Design Team members will each be sending their own package of goodies! It will feel like.... CHRISTMAS for the winner!

For my card this week, I was also inspired by this cookie that I picked up at a cute little bakery on Main Street in Seal Beach. I couldn't eat the cookie until I made my card and photographed it! Torture!

For my snowflake, (which didn't photograph as sparkly as it really is) I popped it out of the Snowflake punch, then inked it up with Versamark. Next, I sprinkled on Clear embossing powder and heated it with my heat gun. Then I inked up just the edges with Versamark again and sprinkled each one with Iridescent Ice and embossed it again. That still wasn't enough sparkle, so I HAD to add Rhinestones!! Bling!!

Supply List:
Card Stock: Shimmery White
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Silver/Jet Black Stazon (I inked up with silver first, then the Stazon)
Extras: Silver Waffle paper, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle XL punch, Word Window punch, Snowflake XL punch, Basic Rhinestones, Big Shot, Movers & Shapers with Punch Windows Magnetic dies,
Versamark, Clear Embossing powder, Iridescent Ice, heat gun
