Today's Challenge at All That Scraps is to use glitter on your project. I LOVE glitter so I was quite excited to participate in this challenge. And, anytime you can combine glitter and ribbon I am especially happy. I don't know why I settled on a winter themed card except that the CC Designs set I really wanted to use I can't show you yet!! Maybe I'll do one with that set after all and just post it on July 4 when the design team members can post samples made with a fun new Lucky and Lulu set.
Anyway, enough of the teaser and back to this card and a little chit chat about glitter....
I LOVE this card sketch! I believe it was Beate's sketch last week (but I've been known to be wrong - my husband will probably print this entry out for use against me later)...I wish I knew who made the cute snowflake paper but it is from another stack that my mother shared with me. I stamped the adorable LuLu stamp from Wintertime Fun and added some snowflakes from that set stamped in Bashful Blue. The image was colored with Stampin Write Markers. I added some glitter as snow on the snowman, the ground and a couple spots on LuLu's hood and coat. Under the Happy Winter greeting I used some Robin's Nest Dew Drops. These came from the Water collection. I LOVE the collections of Dew Drops that Christine carries at All That Scraps because there are usually 3 different colors in one bottle, all of which coordinate together. Why bother "making" your own when you can open the lid, pour them out and be done with it?
NOW...as for the glitter discussion....I love the ease of Stickles. It is so nice to just open one cap and put it just where you want it. BUT, when I want REAL glitter and sparkle - lots of it - I go back to my glue and Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin' Up! There really is a huge difference in my opinion.
I hope you have a great day. Be sure to check out what the other design team members have done with glitter later this afternoon on the All That Scraps blog!
