Bling on Autumn

OVER THE TOP BLING BLING is what we want to see at Cowgirl’s Sunday Stamp’en Challenge.The more sparkle and glitz the better.Who doesn’t deserve a bit of glamour in their lives.So pull out all things glittery,shimmery and bejewelled and get busy!! 

We also have Delicious Doodles sponsoring us this week.

So there are lots of prizes up for grabs.The winner will receive 3 images of their choice from Delicious Doodles plus a winner’s badge.The top 3 will each receive 1 image of their choice from Cowgirl-Up Digital Stamp’en Ranch.No excuse not to pop along and play!You will also get the chance to see the beautiful creations by the DT.


For my card I’ve used the adorable Fall image from Cowgirl-Up Digital Stamp’en Ranch.It even has 15% discount.There are many other images included in this offer too – so what you waiting  for go grab yourself a bargain or few!!This is a fantastic image if you love colouring as much as me – there are so many fabulous details.

I created the pumpkin embellishment from Core’dinations Gemstones card using a Nestablities Classic Scallop Oval die and Sizzix Sizzlits Elegance Decorative Strip,trimming off the parts that weren’t needed.

As per usual I don’t seem to have captured the full sparkle on this.Apart from adding a generous amount of Stickles I’ve also sprayed the patterned paper and raffia lace ribbon with Crafter’s Companion Spray & Sparkle Gold Glitter Varnish – it really glitters IRL.I’ve also used Core’dinations Gemstones card which has a lovely pearlescent sheen and I think you can just make out the tiny gems twinkling away.I had a brainwave of using this Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set so that I could set them around the edge.Boy were they fiddly to handle,even tweezers were useless.Why,oh why do I set myself up for these things?!Still I got there in the end!!
