Pals December 2017 Blog Hop: All That Sparkles and Shines

Welcome to the Pals December 2017 Blog Hop featuring “All that Sparkles and Shines”. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For this card, I chose to use a technique I used this past October for my Splitcoaststamper's Falliday Fest Challenge Tutorial. Unless specified, all products are Stampin' Up!

I used a stamp from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set for the speckles and splatters. The die cut and the stamped sentiment are from the Santa's Sleigh stamp set and coordinating thinlits. The video below explains the process, which is a simpler, more controlled version of the old shaving cream technique that has been around for years. I was very excited when I came up with it last summer. I call it "Not Your Mother's Shaving Cream Technique".    

I really love the Night of Navy color mixed with the gold embossing and glittery deer! Full supply list will be below the blog hop information.
