The next stop on our blog hop is Belinda. I know she has something incredible to show you, and I know you will love it!

Now, back to my project. I used the  Winter Birdhouse 803 stamp set. Here it is.
I stamped out the image and started coloring with colored pencils. Once it was colored, I die cut the card panel and then started blinging up the images with glitter. Here is the sweet little birdie. I used the Nuvo Glue Pen Fine to roll out adhesive where I wanted glitter, and then dusted on Raspberry Soda on his hat, Misty Blue on his wings, and Tiger Orange on his boots and beak.  

I repeated the same system, Nuvo Glue Pen Fine to roll out adhesive and I used Sparkling Snow for the snow and ice icicles on the bird house, and more Raspberry Soda on his long sleeping cap.

Here is another photo of the snow and more of the Sparkling Snow glitter. Also, it shows the Aquamarine glitter I used on the bird's scarf.

I die cut a frame from blue cardstock.Then, I die cut another frame in the same shape but solid, after I had adhered strips of 1/2" Double sided "Tear-ific" Tape along the edges. Here is what the solid frame looked like.
After die cutting the frame shapes, I burnished on Autumn Medley glitter into the 1/2" Double sided "Tear-ific" Tape. Then, I layered the blue cardstock frame over this, and came up with this. I love the sparkle!

Here it is all layered together. So much fun! Love all the sparkle and the way the colors all come together.

Here is another photo of the full card. Once I layered it all together, I wanted to help highlight the snow flake theme. I die cut some snow flakes from white cardstock. Then, I rubbed some Blue Topaz Nuvo Glimmer Paste into some of the flakes, and Pure Platinum Nuvo Embellishment Mousse into others. I adhered the snowflakes onto the card panel with Brushable Glue. These really made the snowflakes really pretty! Those birds in the bird house make me so happy!

This stamp set is really cool. I love the birds. They look so happy!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
