Friday Mashup & Bling at Simon Says!

Friday Yay!!!! That means it's time for a new challenge at the Friday Mashup! This week Cindy is our hostess and she's having us use Silver and Grey together for a project and we're Mashing it up with some Embossing. And the new Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is all about the Bling!!

I decided to use the December Simon Says Card kit which featured this fun set called Sparkle & Shine. Along with sequins and some fun embossing powders, all of which I used on my card. 

I created a front panel with a piece of SSS Slate card stock and then I embossed the triangles across the front at an angle using the Ranger Embossing powder in Liquid Platinum. The challenge calls for silver and this powder is more of a cross between Gold & Silver.. It's very pretty in real life. Then I cut out an opening with a 2 1/2" circle punch and set that piece aside. 

I stamped and embossed the Sparkle & Shine and the fun circle image onto the vellum with the same embossing powder and cut it into a square. Then I adhered it to the underside of the circle so you could see it from the front. Then I added some sequins and glass glitter and enclosed it all with an additional piece of vellum creating a pocket. I wanted a strip of silver along the edge but it didn't match well so I embossed a strip of card stock with the same powder so it would match. Then I added the panel to a Slate card base with some dimensional adhesive. 

This really sparkle & shines in Head over to the Friday Mashup Challenge blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created and link up! The challenge is open until Wednesday @ 6pm EST.
