New Challenge #168 at Glitter N Sparkle

Merry Christmas,
and a Happy New Year to you all.

This will be the last Post I do for Glitter 'N' Sparkle this year,
as we are all taking a well deserved break over the Xmas Holidays.
So I wish you all the very best over this holiday season.

I will be back in 2016 with a New Challenge
and some good news!

The Theme at

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Sami Stamps who are offering
a $12 Gift Certificate for their store.

Cute As A Button who are offering
2 Images from their store

My Project this
week is:-
Curious Gifts Digi Stamp
(One of our sponsors)

To begin with I used an A4 Sheet of Dark Green Card
which I then folded in half to make the Base Card.
Next I matte and layered it using 
Red Glitter Card
(The Range)

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Lipstick Red
Berry Red
Meadow Green
Warm Grey 1
Ice Grey 3

Next I die-Cut the Image out using
the large Ornate Frame
(X-Cut - SCU503043)
To make it 'Sparkle' I added
Xmas Green and Xmas Red Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Ribbons.
I didn't think it was enough so I then added
Holographic Embossing Powder
to the Presents and Paper.
I think it slightly changed the colour of the Glitter 
that was already on when I added the heat oops!
Note to self always add the loose glitter last.

I used a strip of 6cm Sparkly Red/Green/Gold Striped Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
and wrapped it around the corner of the Red Card Layer,
so that It looked like a Wrapped Present.

Next I  Die-cut out my Sentiment
Using a scrap of Dark Green Card
using the Merry Christmas Die
(Creative Dies)

Finally to the Bottom Left Corner of the Image
I added a 2cm Red Rhinestone Flower
(which I found in my Gems Stash - so not sure where they came from)
and to that I added 6 2mm Green Rhinestones
