Stampendous January Challenge: Week 1

It's the very first Saturday of the month (wait - it's actually the first Saturday of the year!!), and that means the fabulous ladies at Stampendous have a brand new challenge to play along with. This month we are all about bringing in the New Year with some BLING! Glitter, rhinestones, sparkly name it. Just make it shiny and get it on your project!

I made a CAS card for today's challenge and added the sparkle with some Recollections Charcoal Detail Embossing Powder.

Here's another angle that shows the sparkle a little better.

All the supplies used to make my card can be found at your nearest Michael's!
Thinking of You Jumbo by Stampendous
Recollections black, Kraft, and white card stock
Stampendous Stamp Boss embossing ink
Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink by Ranger
Dots & Dashes ribbon
Recollections Charcoal Detail Embossing Powder
Recollections Mini Round Gems

Take a look at what these Stampendous team members have created to dazzle you today:

We want YOU to play along with us! Just add you direct link to your card (make sure you've loaded it up with tons of BLING) to the Stampendous blog, no later than February 2, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST. You don't have to use Stampendous products to play along, but we sure love it when you do! And as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive this gorgeous Cherub Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set:

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address. We hope you get a chance to play along with us!

Happy Stamping!
