Sparkling Festival of Trees

The Festival of Trees stamp set and the coordinating Tree Punch are so much fin to play with! Pair these up with Endless Wishes and the possibilities of what you can create truly are endless!

I created the scene by stamping my little pine forest on Soft Sky cardstock. I added snowflakes from Endless Wishes stamp set with the coordinating ink. For some pretty sparkle I painted over the entire thing with Dazzling Details. Look how sparkly it is...
To do this I just squeezed some out right onto my cardstock and used a wide, soft bristled brush to distribute it evenly. Be careful to brush over your design carefully...only once or twice to cover it should be enough, as it will start to make the ink bleed if you over work it too much. You just want a light coat. I set it aside to dry while I worked out the rest of my design. I was surprised that it dried quicker than I thought and I didn't even need my heat tool.

The DSP is from the All Is Calm Specialty pack...such pretty paper! The ribbon is Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta tied with one of the silver All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishments charms...all these items are now available in the 2014 Holiday Catalog.

Enjoy your weekend! It's beautiful here...with thankfully no snowflakes in sight!

I absolutely love this card and am CASEing it for a Christmas card class, but changed a couple of things. I love the dazzling details wash that you described, thanks for that info.
