Is this the loveliest tree you've ever seen??

Stampin Up and Lovely As a Tree
Don't ask me why it has taken me so long to open my jar of heat n' stick powder as it was so simple to use & I only hope the photo does justice to how beautiful & glimmering the tree is. I am being dazzled by all the iridescent colours that are sparkling at me.

Stamp sets: Lovely As A Tree, Seasonal Greetings
Ink: White Craft Ink, Creamy Caramel
Card stock: Kraft & Real Red or Old Olive
Other: Heat n' Stick powder, heat tool, Dazzling diamonds glitter, dimensionals, sponge

Cutting dimensions:
Kraft: cut an A4 piece in half vertically, & 2-1/2 x 4"
Old Olive or Real Red: 2-3/4 x 4-1/4"

And believe it or not this week's SBS challenge was to do a new technique - so without knowing it I've achieved Challenge 2 (& one day early!) - so I've no excuse not to finish off challenge 1 with two more crab cards.

The reject card on River Rock:
The dazzle is amazing/blinding but the white just isn't white enough!

And the Lovely in Real Red version:

Stampin Up and Lovely As a Tree and heat and stick
(Debbie stamped hers just on the red card stock mat & that looked pretty incredible or should that be INKredible!)

Do you have any tips for Heat n Stick Powder - I haven't had much success with it yet.

Thanks Sharon this was my first attempt & it was just stunning ,e everyone's in my class worked too, we used white craft ink instead of Versamark and as you can see the choice of card stock to stamp on made a big difference, the red did look amazing & will post one soon.
