Christmas 2006 Was All About Elmo ~ Practical Scrappers Stamp Challenge

Hello everyone! It's Friday and that means it's time for me to upload my layout for the Practical Scrappers weekly challenge.  This weeks challenge is Stamps, anyway and anyhow..  I stamped my "Christmas" with VersaMark on some Red Glitter Paper and then embossed it with black embossing powder.  I was not for sure if this would work, but as to see, I think it turned out wonderful...  The only thing is you need to let it cool completely before you work with it, because it did bubble while I was heating it.  But after it cooled, it was just fine.  I also used my Stampin Up Ginoumous Flower Stamp and stamped the back of some Doodlebug Design Ladybug Crushed Velvet CS 2 times, then cut both of 'em out and used the front side, curled the petals and added a black velvet brad. 
Here's my list of supplies:
Doodlebug Design Beetle Black Crushed Velvet CS
Red Velvet Flower Ribbon
Red Glitter Paper
Doodlebug Design Ladybug Crushed Velvet CS
Hero Arts Merry Christmas Stamp
SU Ginormous Flowers
Jolee's Boutique ~ Sesame Street Dimensional Elmo Sticker
VersaMark
Black Embossing Powder
Doodlebug ~ Shin-Dig ~ Beetle Black Letters
Thanks so much for dropping in, and please check out the other beautiful project from the other DT Members over at Practical Scrappers.  And you still have until Saturday at 5:00 PM ET to play and that's plenty of time to create something wonderful... So what are you waiting for!!!  Happy scrapping!!  Be sure and upload your creation so we can all see it!!!  Good luck!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
I love your visits and I would love for you to come back anytime!!
Hugs  :o)

Gotta Love Elmo!! Great page Fern - the Christmas in your title looks stunning, interesting that you stamped on glitter paper and then heat embossed, I'm surprised it worked, wouldn't even have tried it myself, but the finished embelli is stunning....

Love the Elmo sticker, he's soooo dimensional....

Hugs xx
