November SOTM - Created to Shine Blog Hop


Welcome to our November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. In this blog hop we are featuring Created to Shine. This set includes 7 images! If you arrived here from ScrappinKaty’s Blog you are on the right track. This hop is a big circle. Just look for the next blog link at the bottom of my post. If you are just getting started on the hop, when you get back to me you will know you have completed the circle! If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers HERE

I really liked this stamp when I first saw it, because this has been my motto for the last few years.  I pray every day that I can be a light for someone that needs it.  I had so many designs in my head for this card but it took several tries to come up with one that I was happy with.  And, I do have to say... this end result was not the original design in my head!  

I envisioned the string of lights having ONE light that shines bright than the rest.  To achieve this, I used 2nd generation stamping and black ink to stamp the string of light across the card.  I masked one light and went back and stamped it 1st generation so that it would be darker than the others.

I stamped another light onto a piece of white daisy and hand trimmed it.  I popped it up with 3D foam on the same light that had been stamped onto the card.  To make the light 'shine', I added Sundance Shimmer Brush.

I also outlined the word 'light' with the Sundance Shimmer Brush.  The mat for the tag and the zip strip is from our new November December Mix In paper.  I colored some clear sparkles with the Gold Yellow Shade Tri-Blend Marker.
