Pals December Blog Hop: All That Sparkle and Shine

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for December 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects showcase products that can add sparkle and/or shine for a finishing touch. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Seriously...I'm in love with the deer die cut from the Santa's Sleigh Dies Thinlits. Using the deer as a focal point makes this somewhat glitzy, but elegant card quick to make. 

I used my #foolproofwatercolor technique for the background, before stamping the pine image from the Christmas Pines stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink. If you missed the post regarding this technique using baby wipes to create a background, click here. I used my most loved splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and Gold Stampin' Emboss powder to add some interest behind the deer. I finished the card off with some gold metallic thread, gold sequins and a word cut from Bermuda Bay cardstock using one of the dies from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits. 

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Do you have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator? If not, I would love to be your source for these amazing products and hopefully give you a good dose of inspiration from time to time. This is not just a hobby for me, it is a passion! 

Please use the hostess code shown in the top right corner when ordering online, unless your order will total $150 before shipping & tax. At that point, you become your own hostess and get all the rewards! 

As always, let me know if you have any questions about the project or the products used. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Artfully Yours,
