Tuesday Trigger, Shimmer and Shine!

It's time to sparkle!

As a Close to My Heart Consultant I was able to preview the NEW "Whooo' Your Valentine" Kit early! When I first saw the Silver Glitter Paper (available in February 2012) it knocked my socks off! Love at first craft! It really does shimmer and shine! So when I saw this Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World Blog- I had the perfect excuse to put it to use!

Shimmer and Shine, Tuesday Trigger inspiration photo.
Silver and Gold and shiny fancy metallics! It's just one thing I love about the Christmas Season- a reason to celebrate and get glitzy! Here is the card I created while inspired by this photo (and also keeping my most bling loving friends in mind).

I used this sketch from Mojo Monday The Blog as my design. This one is Mojo207. The first week of the month at Mojo is contest week! Play along for your change at the winnings! :)

I used the sparkle paper with my scallop punch and I am happy to report that it impressed me! The glitter falloff on my workspace was minimal and the punch worked without any extra effort! I am impressed with this new Paper!

When I think metallic and shiny I reach for my embossing powders and heat gun right away! This time I COMBINED my silver and gold embossing powders as an experiment to just see what would happen. (Those who know me understand this is very out of my comfort zone- I am usually very diligent to return each respective powder to its own personal vile... I just had to make a new vile for this concoction!) I love how it turned out! It adds more dimension then the flat silver would have been alone. What do you think?

What fancy blingy things have you created this Christmas?
