CTC146 – Season of Glitz

What a weekend!!  I went to Melbourne on Friday for a Jamberry conference (yes, I’m a Jamberry consultant as well.  You can check out my site here) and back home today.  Of course, I’m not organised so I’m making a quick card for tonight’s Caseing the Catty hop!

We are casing the Season of Glitz section, pages 20-27 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

There are lots of great cards to case in this section.  I actually only have one set from this section and I didn’t use it!  I’m casing the pillow box on page 23 and have turned it into a card.

I love the snowflakes behind the ho ho’s so that was my main inspiration for my card.  I had a flip through my framelits and found a nice star in the Starlight thinlits that would go well on the card.  I cut out three of the smaller stars in Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.  I used the same Merry Little Christmas dsp as the original sample as I liked to continue the star theme.

I added a strip of black shimmer ribbon which has a nice, subtle sparkle to it.    The sentiment is from the matching Star of Light stamp set, stamped in Marina Mist.

This looks a lot more sparkly in real life!

Next up is the talented Sandra from across the pond in New Zealand!

The Holiday Catalogue is here!!

Can you believe that the Holiday Catalogue is here!!  Surely it’s not that time of the year already.

There are so many gorgeous new products that it’s so hard to chose what to play with first!!

My team is having a Holiday Catalogue swap so I decided to try out the Start of Light stamp set and Starlight Thinlit dies, which you can also purchase as a bundle.   I decided to keep the colour theme simple and went with Soft Sky and Whisper White.  The central star is cut out on vellum and attached to a solid Soft Sky star.  I then added clear wink of stella for some bling.

One of my long time favourites is heat embossing, so I embossed the sentiment in silver.  I also added a twirl of silver metallic thread behind the star for extra sparkle.
