CAS Christmas August 2019 - GLITTER

Hello friends.  This months challenge over at CAS Christmas is to use GLITTER!!


I have LOTS of glitter...no problem!!  :0)  And I loosely followed a technique that Colleen showed with her card and came up with this:


I started by using a Poppystamps ornament die cut and blending Sweet Blush, Autumn Rose, & Scarlett Jewel inks in an ombre pattern and then spread VIVA Glitter Paste over it.  LOTS of sparkle!!  Once it was dry, I added the frame around it and the little cap piece (is there a name for that piece???) that I die cut from silver glitter paper, and then added it to the panel that I had very lightly blended some Sweet Blush ink to before stamping the pine bough from SU!'s Ornamental Pine stamp set in the upper corner of the panel.


To finish I added a piece of silver thread through the ornament cap piece and taped it to the back of the panel and then adhered that to a white card base.  My sentiment comes from Penny Black's Yuletide Wishes stamp set.

If you like playing with GLITTER (and who doesn't?!!) and need to get working on your Christmas card stash, then join in the FUN right HERE.  There's lots of BEAUTIFUL inspiration to get you started and this challenge is open till the 24th.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
