Stampendous Saturday: Hollyhocks

Another Saturday means another chance to get your bling on with the fabulous ladies at Stampendous .  You heard right, this month we are all about bringing in the New Year with some BLING!  Glitter, rhinestones, sparkly stickers...you name it.  Just make it shiny and get it on your project!

My card today features the brand new cling jumbo Hollyhock stamp - I am so in love with it!  I fussy cut one, and then stamped it again to cut out a few petals and pop them up.  I also added some Tsukineko shimmer spritz (in silver and sparkle) to may card base to help with the whole "bling" effect.   On my diamond shaped light pink panel, I stamped the pretty swirl from the jumbo Romantic Border set in Versamark ink and used some new Shabby Green Embossing Enamel to add more bling (I love that the enamels have glitter mixed in!).

Here is a better look at how I popped up a few petals.  Two are adhered with mono multi glue on one edge, and then given a bit of dimension by putting foam tape under the opposite side (so they are on a tilt).  The top petal is just popped up all the way.  I added some Creative Impressions bling to the flower centers.

It is hard to catch all the shimmer and glitter with my camera - even in natural light AND an Ott Lite!  Check out who else is playing along this weekend:

We want YOU to play along with us!  Just add you direct link to your card (make sure you've loaded it up with tons of BLING) to the linky tool below my signature (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than February 2, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST.  You don't have to use Stampendous products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!  And as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive this gorgeous Cherub Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set:

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you get a chance to play along with us - happy stamping!

Gorgeous card!! I love all the sparkle. And I love those hollyhocks! I just bought the Stampendous Jumbo Rose and Jumbo Hydrangea today and it looks like I'll have to get this one next! LOL!

What a beautiful card, Taylor. I really like how you popped up the flower. Also thanks for the reminder to enter my card. I would have totally forgotten.

This is stunning Taylor! Your swirl is fabulous and compliments the flowers perfectly. BTW, your popped hollyhocks are incredible too.
