…must be from Stampin’ Up!! Ok, maybe not EVERYTHING that glitters but there sure are a lot of things from SU that do!! So it seems like the perfect time for SUO Challenges to do this theme – Glitter Galore.
What better to use for a sparkly theme than the Glimmer Paper??!! I love this paper! It is so amazing in person! I cut out some snowflakes using the Snow Flurry Die. Then I simply mixed a couple drop of Not Quite Navy reinker and a few drops of water, using that to color the bigger snowflakes. You can play around with the color until it is what you like (I used a small scrap first). After it dried, I layered a “plain” silver snowflake on top (not really very plain, after all). I love the effect! A Basic Rhinestone was the perfect thing to add to the centers. Now for the sentiment. With all the sparkle I couldn’t just use any old thing to stamp the sentiment. I pulled out my Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. To get a little color behind the sparkle, stamp your sentiment onto a Versamark Pad and then onto a Basic Gray pad. This will make your ink sticky and the embossing powder will stick perfectly (don’t forget to use your Embossing Buddy first).
The team has made some spectacular projects…you might consider some sunglasses for all the sparkle! *smile* We can’t wait for you to show us your glitter and glam!!
So glad you dropped by today. I am still madly working on my Christmas cards but will be back tomorrow with another Freshly Made Sketches card. Until then, have a great day!
