Bling It On!

Yes, that's right, we're still "Blinging on the Holidays" for our special crafty crossover challenge with the lovely ladies on the Double Trouble Challenge Blog. Which means you can make ONE (new, blingy, holiday) CARD and link it up at both sites... with a chance of a fun little prize at each!

Here's how we were inspired to use bling this week:

Lauren's Other Card

Lauren says, "I'd been trimming up papers from Photoplay's North Pole Trading Co line for a Christmas in July class I'm teaching at Paper Anthology, so I had lots of weirdly sized little strips of pretty paper -including metallic gold and glittery red- and whenever that happens, I tend to want to use them to make backgrounds like this one I did a few years ago. For a focal point I used the round tag (and one of the cut-outs) from Pinkfresh Studio's Classic Tags with Fillable Elements die set to make an ornament from a scrap of older red moire paper. I backed it with Copper Non-Shed Glitter Paper adorned with Eyelet Outlet Pearls, and an oversized red Pearl Brad; dangling from a Champagne Bling Strip hung on my Tim Holtz Holiday Greens Thinlits."

Stephanie says, "Lauren gifted me some of these lovely Penny Black Masterpieces Made Simple.  It was so lovely, all I did was mount it on a white cardstock card base and add some Eyelet Outlet Fancy Wide Bling and a sticker sentiment to complete the snowy scene."

Scroll down to our original "Bling on the Holidays" post to link up your card for a chance to win our wonderful blingy prize package AND don't forget to also link up at the Double Trouble Challenge Blog.
