Sneaks Day 2: O Holy Night!

Well, if you liked yesterday's Power Poppy sneak peek Bough Wow Wow, you're going to love today's offering just as much! It's a classic image that truly captures the peaceful feel of the season!

O Holy Night, featuring a classic snow-covered church on Christmas Eve, can be stamped classically in one color for an on-the-go creation or can be colored up in its full moon-lit glory! This image is paired with five reverent sentiments, perfect to share the true meaning of the season!  

On to my creation!

I knew when I saw this image that I wanted to stamp it in navy blue AND I wanted to make sure it was really razzle dazzled up with glitter. With that in my head, I decided to dig through my dies and find one that would truly help this image take center stage! I turned to the die called Fancy Ribbon Threader.  from Spellbinders! I stamped the image using Nautical Blue and then matted it below my framed die cut. I will say that this die is normally solid in the center (not a frame). After embossing the die, I kept the die on my paper and used an X-acto knife to cut out that center panel. I threaded the ribbon slots with some sheer, irridescent trim white ribbon and then added a frame of rhinestones! The base was embossed with the Spellbinders Embossing Folder called Holiday Magic. Add some Diamond Stickles glitter glue and.. ta da! Done!

I can guarantee you that the rest of the Bloom Brigade has taken this set and put a whole new and beautiful spin on it! So, what are you waiting for? Stop on by and see what gorgeous creations their ever-so-talented hands created using it!

Well, of course, you know I simply love this all in blue, but the shading you added makes it even prettier! I have always loved this frame when you use it, too. That's an amazing lot of rhinestones and they look fabulous!

Marcella Hawley said...

You nailed it, lil Miss Razzle Dazzle!! This is so very chic. You know how i like the idea for a challenge: "Can this outfit be made into a card?" -- when I see this pretty combination you've created, it makes me think, "Can this card be made into an outfit?" If it could, I would totally buy it in a size 2 petite. Beautiful stuff, Jules!!
