Art philosophy Sparkle and Shine card

  Hello, friends!



Today I have a card that I made using the Art Philosophy cartridge and the November stamp of the month. There is a lot going on here with heat embossing, stamping, and paper piecing. I also used a smattering of bling. This card was a ton of fun to make!

For the lantern, I first stamped the candle. Next, I stamped the flame. Last, I stamped the lantern. For the bow and holly, I used the Yuletide Holiday stamp set and stamped on patterned paper with black ink and then cut out the bits I wanted to use. The 'Sparkle & Shine' sentiment was stamped in ruby and then I stamped it in juniper on a scratch sheet of cardstock and cut out the ampersand using micro tip scissors.
