I Dream of Stamping

The Olympics kicked off last night and so did a new stamping blog called "I Dream of Stamping."  My dear stamping buddies, Jana Weaver, Michelle VanWiggeren and I, wanted to do more stamping and posting on our blogs so we decided to challenge each other to do so. From that a whole new blog was created. I Dream of Stamping is not only for us but for you as well! Bienvenue!

To kick things off, we decided to host the 2010 Winter Card Olympics!
You can read all about this fun challenge over on I Dream of Stamping.

I was a mess last night, trying to get better (physically) and ready to teach my Copics class and Cards class at Memories Live On. I had to delay posting my portion of the torch relay until today. LOL! I remember watching the torch lighting ceremony and there was the malfunction at the end...

Anyways, here's my card to kick off the Olympics:

I created the rings using my 1-3/8" circle punch and 1-3/4" circle punch. I punched these circles on Papertrey's Stampers Select White. Using Copic markers B18, Y15, 100, G14, and R46, I colored the circles with the chiseled end. I ran the Diamond Bling (Bazzill Bling) through the Big Shot with the Snowflakes (Cuttlebug) embossing folder. That's Polar White Flowersoft that is on the cupcake. I added some glitter to it before the glue dried for some extra sparkle. I didn't have any torches and saw this cupcake... it looks like a torch! If anything, it's a cupcake! You all know I love my cupcakes! lol!

Now hop over to see what Jana and Michelle have come up with for the torch relay! Then visit I Dream of Stamping for the deets.
Our first challenge will be posted tomorrow (Sunday) with a prize so be sure to come back!

Happy stamping dreams!

Adorable all that snowy sparkle...and the cupcake is WAY better than a torch, that's for sure! :-) Hugs to you!!!
