Eureka! Stamps Challenge-Make it Sparkle

Hi and welcome to my post for the
This week our theme is
"Make it Sparkle"
For all the particulars about the challenge visit
For my card I chose to use
"Snow Background" (#27301)
"Snowman Balloon" (#11805)
"Snowman To and From" (#23705) and
"Hi!" (#digi4506)
 For the background I stamped
"Snow Background"
onto black card stock with VersaMark ink. 
I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I got some fine craft glitter ready then reheated the embossing,
while it was still hot, I sprinkled it with the glitter.
Since the embossing is hot, it is sticky and the glitter sticks to it.
Both of my snowmen are only parts of the image.
The smaller snowman is
"Snowman Balloon"
I stamped him onto white card stock,
colored him with FlexMarkers,
used a glue pen to cover him with glue,
added Sticky Powder
(also available through Eureka! Stamps)
heated it and while it was hot and sticky,
I added glitter. 
I fussy cut the snowman,
cutting off the bottom, gathered part of the balloon.
I used the same process to make the larger snowman from
"Snowman To and From"
and fussy cut the parts that I wanted to use.
I adhered the snowmen to the black background,
 then layered it onto a white card stock base.
The "Hi!" was printed onto white card stock
from my computer and cut to size, dash lines added
 then adhered to my card.
I hope you can see all the sparkle and shine on this card.
And I hope you won't be afraid to use glitter,
it really perks up a card or project.
Thanks for stopping by today,
I hope you have been inspired
and will join in the fun of the
Eureka! Stamps Challenge.
There is plenty of inspiration from our design team,
so I hope you will take a few minutes
 to check out their blogs and leave a little love
for them while you are there. 
We all love getting comments!
Come again soon!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
