SUOC60 - Glitter! (And a Sneak Peek)


If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you know how much I love shiny, glittery things, so this week's challenge at SUO Challenges was a thrill for me. Especially since I got to use some new items from the Spring Catalog pre-order! Oh my, are you all in for a treat when you see it!!!


The first thing that got me excited was the Honeycomb embossing folder....woohoo, we have hexagons which are fashionable now! We don't have a punch that matches, so how did I get all those little hexagons to match? Easy! I put the Champagne Glimmer paper through Mr. Big with the Honeycomb folder. That made it super easy to cut the size and shape needed with my Paper Snips, just by following the lines. It was all short straight cuts, and went quickly.

You may have noticed the Very Vanilla oval behind the stamped image. That was cut using the new Framelits Ovals collection. There are 7 ovals Framelits, the largest being a scalloped oval!

The embossed tag that the tree is stamped upon is from the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit. The kit has tags, fabric covered brads, pre-cut paper flowers and a stamp, but I just wanted to use one of the embossed tags for this project.

Well, there you have it - my sample for this week's challenge, which uses the Champagne Glimmer Paper, and it's soooo sparkly in real life! I hope you will participate in our challenge this week and create something glittery to share.
