2012 Sparkle and Shine

I was quite excited to see that this week’s Friday Mashup Challenge was a New Year inspired card with lots of “sparkle”! We had a very low key New Year and did not actually stay up late enough to ring in the New Year so it was great to be able to express the glitz and glamour of New Year’s Eve with this week’s project.

With January in full swing at Stampin’ UP! we are retiring the Holiday Mini catalogue and launching the NEW Occasions Mini catalogue AND starting a little later this month Sale a Bration. Being a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator has countless benefits one of which is being able to preorder NEW items before they are available to the general public. I could not wait to take them for a test drive and used two such new products on this card (Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details from the Occasions Mini and Sprinkled Expressions Stamp Set from the Sale a Bration catalogue).

My Challenge:
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:

  1. Make a project that "Sparkles".
  2. Or Make a project "Celebrating the New Year".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "Celebrating the New Year that Sparkles".
My Card:
Tiny Tips:
Dazzling Details glitter glue is a beautiful addition to the Stampin’ UP! arsenal. The only thing to remember when using this fabu product is that it does take a little extra time to try. You want to make sure you give yourself plenty of time to let your card dry before sending it off. I also find it is best to fully assemble your card and then add your glimmer look as a final touch.

Thanks for stoppin’ by!
