i {heart} papers.... i {heart} bling!

Today we have a really special blog hop and challenge going on all around the Planet! It's all about BLING! You can call it paper make-up, jewelry, bling, whatever -- it's that little bit of glaze, glitter and dazzle that you ad to your cards to give them that "finishing touch". The Supernovas are using the new Petal Press stamps, Summer Garden, for our projects from i{heart}papers and we'll show you just how versatile one stamp set can be!

For my card, I used the jar and roses, coloring them to match the Fancy Pants papers I used. I applied a little bit of Glossy Accents to the jar to simulate the glass. There's a lot of distress ink sponged on all the edges here, because I thought it was a great contrast to the pretty Prima pearls I added. The layout was inspired by the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #120.

OK, now it's your turn! Make a card with a lot of dazzle and you could win the new Petal Press stamps, In The Garden, from i{heart}papers. All you need to do is tag your card "iheartbling" and upload it to the Planet. We'll be keeping an album for everyone that shows off all the entries so far!

Looking for some inspiration? Check out what the other Supernovas made!
