Glitter Blog Hop

Welcome to this months Lorby's World of Hops blog hop and our theme is GLITTER. Who doesn't love a little sparkle in their life? This hop is taking sparkle to a whole new level with all the creative glittery projects these crafters have made just to put a little (or lot) of sparkle in your life today so please take a few minutes to hop through and leave some kind words for each person participating.

Lorby's World of hops is offering one lucky winner a $10 gift card to Michaels and to get entered into the drawing all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog, become a follower and check back on Sunday to see if you won. 

In my creative world if all fails, add glitter or glitter mist to bring out the best in your project and that's exactly what I did with this Christmas card. Yes, Christmas card. I'm still celebrating Christmas in July and getting a jump on my Christmas cards. 
I stamped and colored using my Prismacolor pencils and then I decided I needed something more so out came the Stickles. I stamped two of the same image so I could Glimmer Mist in Forever Red the frame and then add that as a raised dimension. I also cut the star apart and used Forever Green Glimmer Mist on the big star and yellow Stickles on the small star and all the other stars. 

I added the dark red background with a snow boarder punch design and decided I needed more...so I added the crafter's cord made from hemp and from Hemptique. The hemp twine has a dark shimmer strand running through it.

Still not enough glitter and shimmer so I started going through my A2 cards looking for something I could glimmer mist when low and behold I found this greenish teal card. Perfect!

The red half pearls are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies and where the perfect last touch I needed to finish this card.

Here's the beauty of this project. It wasn't suppose to be for this hop. I was just playing with a new stamp I bought from Tuesday Mornings for 99 cents and before I knew it the glitter and sparkle had taken over and won!

Thanks for stopping by today and now please continue on to  Edwina
