Stampendous Add a Little Dazzle Blog Hop

The finale hop with Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets alongside Stampendous Stamps and Essentials! 

Today we have a full line up of inspiration pieces for you to grab some ideas and comment on each blog for a chance at one of three prize packages that include Metal Sheets, Stamps and Cutting Dies, you've seen throughout this week

We have enjoyed working with Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets this week. They were new to me and it was easy to dive in and try new techniques.

The team over at Add a Little Dazzle has created a special featuring the metals from this blog hop for those of you who have already realized you're going to need these products. You can find it here - Add A Little Dazzle Stampendous Hop Special.

This ornament was my opportunity to have fun with the mixed media side of my art. I love to layer and get thick into the paints, glitter, embossing powders to mke a collage look. There is glitter on kraftboard. Copper embossing on metal sheet on top of kraftboard and then it's all smudged with Metallic Lustre wax paint. There is also tissue paper embossed snowflakes dancing around a Christmas Diamond embossed image of Santa. The Christmas tag is nestled in by Santa and the bow is tied through two holes punched with the Crop-a-Dile tool.

Product details are at the bottom of my post because I'm sure you'll want to move forward on to more fun projects.
