CASology 51 - Fireworks!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Fireworks!



Isn't this DeNami stamp amazing? And it's so easy to get this sparkly, fireworks effect  by using embossing powders that have glitter in them. Using Versamark I stamped the centre one first and embossed it in Egyptian Gold ep. Then I moved on to the lower right and embossed with Dragon Red, and finally the lower left and embossed with WOW! Platinum Sparkle.

I grouped the three 'bursts' closely together, to create one larger focal image. I love how they overlap and interact.  I kept the (Stamps of Life) sentiment generic and small, so that this can be used for many different occasions.

So now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you all come up with! And don't forget to stop by the blogs of the DT members for even more inspiration! (especially our newest members, Gillian and Kimberly - I know you'll want to welcome them!)

Very dramatic! I love the glittery embossing and the discreet little sentiment.

That certainly is an awesome fireworks stamp and the embossing powder is much much more glittery than mine! LOL! The little sentiment is so totally perfect.

And thanks, I'm glad to be back! :D
