Rock the Block Holiday Card

I know I didn't post much last week, but I have been stamping my block off - my Rock the Block set that is! Today I have a quick Christmas card made with my Rock The Block set. I used the polka dot background stamp on my background, stamping tone on tone with Crystal Blue Ink. Then I sanded the stamped CS with the roughest side of my sanding block.

I cut some Ornaments with my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and stamped them with the grid background and flower corner images. Then I filled in the white spaces on the ornaments with Stardust glitter glitz gel. It made the grid ornament so 3-D like those frosted ornaments from the store. I also popped some silver glitz onto random dots in the background for more sparkle.

I used a sketch from Heart 2 Heart Challenges. My color inspiration came from the Moxie Fab World: Inspired by Fashion challenge. I loved the blue and white jacket with the bit of sparkle with the vintage brooches! So I added those awesome Rhinestone Brads to my ornaments and my snowflake center. Then I stitched my ornament strings on by hand.

Rock the Block starts on the 15th, and you get an E sized totally adorable stamp set ($29.95) plus a set of 9 alterable blocks with display tray ($14.95) for just $15! More projects are coming throughout this week, culminating in a consultant Rock The Block Blog Hop on the 20th. I can't wait to see what everyone else is doing with their blocks...and order another set for myself!
