OCCC, IC154 Silhouettes and Sparkles


Happy Saturday!!!

I was so excited when Denise asked me to be the Guest Stamper for this weeks OCC Challenge!!! Thank you Denise for inviting me!!!

Today she has made my dream come true by using *Silhouette* Stamps and by adding some *Sparkles*!!! How cool is that???

I always had a passion for *Silhouette* Stamps, but I think I really fell in love with them when I was a Guest Designer for *Innovative Stamp Creations*. (If you like you can click here and look at the cards I made).

Anyway - for this card I used a *Stampendous* Stamp called *Agapanthus Cluster* (P107).

The colors I chose are - Whisper White, Real Red and Old Olive CS. The whole image was inked with Real Red. Next I used a Q-tip and wiped off the RR from the stems which I then colored with an Old Olive Marker.

Then I used my brand new *Curved Rectangle* Nesties - I bought them at *Stamper's Dream* (Thanks Michelle for the super fast delivery!!!) I also used the CB folder *Tiny Bubbles* on the longer Real Red panel. I raised the image panel with Stampin Dimensionals and added some Silver Brads on the right hand side. At the end I bedazzled the Clusters with Dazzling Diamond Glitter.


I think I was a bit to excited, because I couldn't go to sleep last night.....I was waiting to see what Stef has cooked up for the IC154 and of course I was hooked immediately on those pretty scraves!!! I chose this one for my card. I must admit knowing today's OCC Challenge.....I just had to use a Silhouette Stamp.....This one is from *Penny Black* and it's called *Constellation* (3867K).

I used Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango CS and the DP is from SU *Haiku*.

The image was inked in Tangerine Tango and I also used an Old Olive Marker for the stems. The sentiment is from *All Holidays* and I inked it in Chocolate Chip.

Sorry the picture is a bit blurry - I think it is all the DD Glitter and since it's late I had to turn on all the available light....LOL!!! (click on the little photo to see a close up).

I used a lot of Stampin Dimensionals to layer the different panels. Next I finished it off with some Gold Brads (Making Memories) and the yummy-licious Satin CC Ribbon.

Hope you like it??? If you have time please play along I can't wait to see your favorite *Silhouette* Stamp!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend !!! ~TFL~vderful weekend!!! ~TFL~
