Inspirational #104 ~ Under the tree

I'm so excited to be hosting my very first challenge for the Red Rubber Inspirationals blog! My challenge (Inspirational #104) is to let your stamping sparkle by adding glitter, bling, mists, or Stickles to your stamping, like I did on this page that I made of my nephew peeking under the tree.

I used the Amelia Patterned Cardstock Collection and stamped the the top left and bottom right of the green punched paper using Vintage Script stamp and Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink, which I just LOVE! I used the same ink to cover my chipboard snowflake and then applied Stickles (Goldenrod) over it.

I made the star on the Christmas tree the same way, by stamping it onto white cardstock, cutting it out, and applying Stickles (Goldenrod). I used the tag that came in the collection to stamp my tree on using the Oh Christmas Tree stamp with Memento Cottage Ivy ink. I extended the trunk by stamping it onto the bottom layer of the tag using Palette (Burnt Umber) ink. Then came the fun part of decorating it, which I did by using Stickles for my ornaments. I also used Stickles to make the berries on top.

Be sure to join me and the team for some more inspiration! We'd love to see how you make your stamping sparkle!


  1. Beautiful layout Drea! I love the glitter alphas and how detailed the entire layout it is. I need to use my Stickles more often, thanks for the inspiration.
