I think you'll agree we've got the best title ever this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash, and possibly you've already guessed that you have the choice of making a card that incorporates either light source (the sun, a lightbulb, a chandelier) OR some bling. Or, if you're me, you might choose BOTH!

SOS484: Shine Bright Like a Diamond
Hambly Screen Prints has been out of business for nearly a decade, but... having been a huge fan AND having cool friends like Stephanie and Amy, who've managed to keep finding some of Hambly's divine transparencies here and there, I still have some, which I treasure and try NOT to hoard. I made this not-quite-A7 Chandelier cardbase from a leftover piece (hence the odd size!) and used a few of the offcut chandeliers on top of my collage of vintagey papers and postage. That is an actual Sewing Pattern Lady (from a vintage pattern envelope) and she's surrounded by older bejeweled Prima Flowers and wearing a necklace that's clipped from the very edge of an Eyelet Outlet Swirl Bling. I'm quite smugly claiming extra points for having found an ancient but un-cut piece of Tim Holtz patterned paper with a coordinating sewing pattern lady on it to use as my photo background. :)
Head over to SOS to see what the rest of the team have made and start planning how YOU will, "Shine Bright Like a Diamond"!
