Glittery Ornament card with Hero Arts

Here with another Holiday card today. I'm not sure what I'm going to do once the Holidays are over, I feel like the only cards I can make right now are Christmas cards and I really don't need anymore to give to family and friends but I keep making them anyways:P Oh well:).

I will be participating today's card in Simon Says Stamp Bling it on challenge. Such a fun challenge! I love glitter and sparkles so it was very much for me:)

I made this card using Hero Arts products.
I started with a white card base and stamped the three ornament. I wanted kind of an ombre affect on them, which doesn't pick up that well in the photos but to do this I added some white ink on the bottom part of the stamp and then simply stamped over the color for a slight shade difference.
I then stamped the snow flakes in the background with a light blue ink and then the sentiment in Memento tuxedo black.
So the complete glitter background sadly does not show in the photos nearly as much as it does in person of how wonderfully glittery it is but I did this by pressing Versamark ink all over my paper and then covered in clear glittery embossing powder ( I used Iridescent Ice by Stampin up) I then set it with my heat gun. I did this step twice to make it extra glittery:)

Stamp set: 
Decorate your Holiday by Hero Arts (Images, Snowfakes in background and Sentiment)
Colored ink: Old olive by Stampin up
Pool party by Stampin up
Fired brick Distress ink

Embossing powder: Iridescent Ice by Stampin up
