December Challenge at UnstampaBelles - Sparkle & make us smile!

The UnstampaBelles December challenge is Sparkle & make us smile! Remember: no stamps!

This will be our last challenge until February 6th, so be sure to play along!

This was my first time playing with Karen Burniston's "Holiday House" die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Her Pop-It-Ups are so fun, and I adapted this set to create a little lantern.

I used watermark ink to stencil the brick pattern on the outer houses, heat-embossed them with sticky powder & covered them with peach glitter. The door- & window-frames were cut from a paper I made myself with a red gel pen & a ruler!  I colored the light strings with metallic pens, and used Marvy embossing markers & more sticky powder to cover the bulbs with glow-in-the-dark glitter.
