Art With Heart December Blog Hop Add A Little Sparkle

The Art With Heart Team are back with our last Blog Hop for 2019. Getting in the spirit of Christmas and New Year celebrations, this month our theme is ‘Add A Little Sparkle’. We have a huge range of sparkly  projects to share with you featuring products such as Glimmer paper, Rhinestones, Delicata Ink, Shimmery White cardstock and much more. All of these products are available from Stampin’ Up! and any of these lovely ladies would be happy to assist you.

I was so excited to hear about this theme for our latest blog hop, anything that is made out of glitter is my kind of thing and I’m so happy to be sharing with you my latest Christmas Card using Stampin’ Up! products. Plus I’m using a brand new product that is available for customers in January 2020.

Glitter is so much fun to play with when it comes to using it in your papercraft, cards or scrapbooking. The colour choice for my card I've chosen is Whisper White, Silver (all different types of mediums) and Blushing Bride (a beautiful shade of pink).

I started off with a piece of Silver Foil, run it through with the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder and the Die Cutting Machine. Then I die cut the embossed Silver Foil paper with the medium size Stitched Rectangle Dies to give the card a nice finished look. I wanted to give the Silver Foil some sparkle so I ran my Versamark Ink Pad along the raised bumps, added Stampin’ Glitter and heat set with the Heat Tool.

I’ve used the Beautiful Boughs Dies for the labels and the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set for the greetings. Using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder to coordinate the colours throughout the card.

The gorgeous snowflakes and leaf foliage are from the Christmas Layers Dies. I’ve die cut them out using Blushing Bride Cardstock and Silver Glimmer paper which is just stunning to use.

The Blushing Bride leaf foliage needed some added sparkle so I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects and sprinkled Stampin’ Glitter on top, wait for it to dry before adding to your papercraft. The snow flakes add a nice touch to the card too.

The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock and I’ve randomly stamped the words in Blushing Bride Ink, but I like to stamp off before stamping onto the card. I’ve added Silver Metallic Thread under the top label.

Now for the new product which is available in January 2020 in the Mini Catalogue they are pretty embellishments called From My Heart Faceted Gems. They add some pretty pink sparkle to the card. What do you think?

The next demonstrator to share their sparkly projects with you is the delightful….. Rebecca Jacovou
