Add a Litte Sparkle

Play Here

Hello and welcome to the new Serendipity Stamps
 Sparkle Challenge!

I used this darling Holiday Mailbox stamp again.  HERE I didn’t add the all over sparkle . I told you was having way too much fun using this technique of :all over Versa Mark then adding embossing powder . The image from the stamp still comes through nicely. I used two coats of embossing.

 Take Care!

Hi there! Can you believe its the end of the month and time to say good-by to November, me either! 
Kim sent out this very fun , bright and happy Christmas Kit.
I had so much fun I made my cards as soon as the kit came in the mail.
If you’re not sure what I am talking about please check out the link
below to the 12 Kits Blog. 

For the card above, I just fussy cut the image added a mini wobbler under  Santa, so he moves.

I stamped the Merry Christmas from Concord & 9th

I also added a mini wobbler to the car, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink 

Both of these cards are cut with Lawn Fawn String of Lights
 using the darling papers from the kit that Kim sent out!

 Thank you so much Kim! Hope you can see how much fun I had .

Hi there! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
 (for those  here in America)
We were blessed to spend a beautiful day with family. It's so nice when the house is full and comes alive!

Isn’t this a beautiful inspiration photo!

I am so excited about this new Papertrey Ink - Wrap it Up Die
I love it! You can’t see from the photo but I made this into a fold up tag so 
it can hold a small gift , I used the measurements from Amy’s blog. Here

I used gold glitter embossing powder on these little trees from, Make It Market Mini Kit: Holiday Folk

Create Along With Papertrey Ink

Create Along With Us: November 2016
Hi there! Quick post getting it in under the wire. I made this a few days ago
 but didn’t get around to posting it until now.

I used this beautiful tag by
Laurie to create my card!

I know I use this quilted tag die a lot, can’t help it, I love it! 

When I was looking for my Papertrey Ink candles to stamp I saw Winter Hills and decided to 
use the tree. I altered the die from Present die for the top layer. 
Hope you enjoy your Sunday!

Glass Glitter Shaker

I added a few more pictures so you can see the movement of the glass glitter.

Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #3
: Sparkle and Shine

Hello and Happy Weekend to you all!
I had this in my head,  it didn’t come out quite like I wanted but sharing it anyway. 
Maybe it’s the colors Im not happy with or wishing I would have mixed some tiny sequins 
inside with the glass glitter.

 I do love this heart and the way the glitter moves when you shake it. 
The heart is layered with five layers and one layer of acetate .

I filled the Concord & 9th Heart with glass glitter from
 Germany, it was a gift from one of my daughters.

I’ve been busy again with family birthdays, helping out with some of the grandkids,etc!  
Thank you so much for the visit today and I hope you all have a
wonderful weekend.
