All That Sparkles and Shines


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for December 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month our projects showcase products that can add sparkle and/or shine for a finishing touch. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

For this month’s project, my goal was to create a special Christmas card for a friend who loves snowflakes as much as I do. I have to confess, I love going outside during an evening snowfall of giant flakes and catch them on dark colored construction paper under the light, so you can look at them up closely; they are beautiful and very intricate. I had this beauty in mind when creating this card.

StampinUp Christmas Card made with Flurry of Wishes stamp set, Snow Flurry Punch, Silver Foil Sheets, Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper, Rhinestones, designed by demo Lynn Tague. See more cards and gift ideas at #BeyondBeachesandBlessings

The card is as beautiful as I imagined it; just difficult to catch on camera. Did you know you can stamp on Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper? I did just that using Soft Sky ink for the three popped-up snowflakes. They are beautiful and full of sparkles. Using Stampin’ Up! Glimmer paper, along with Foil sheets, Rhinestone Basic Jewels and 1/8” Silver Ribbon is sure to add sparkle and shine to any of your projects. These are all staples in my paper-crafting arsenal for adding sparkle and shine, and I use them often.
