Colours of the Flag for Christmas

The latest Sparkle Creations challenge is to be inspired by this photo:

As soon as I saw it, I knew that a new IndigoBlu stamp I recently bought was perfect for it.  Here's what I created:

Both the image and the sentiment are heat embossed, and a scattering of silver sequins added for embellishment.

I also made it for the SCS CAS challenge, "Flag Day" -  make a card in the colours of your country's flag.  The Canadian flag is just red and white, but I did have to add a bit of black for the sentiment and the border as I tried stamping both image and sentiment in red and I didn't like the look of it.

Stamps - Indigo Blu Baubles Flourish, Paper Smooshes sentiment
Ink - ColorBox Cranberry, Versafine Onyx Black
Paper - white and black cs
Size - 5.75" square
Accessories - clear embossing powder, Ranger red embossing powder, silver sequins


  1. This is a pretty stamp and perfect for this challenge! I love all the sequins!

  2. great CAS card, the red really pops with the ornament swirl.
