Another Friday has zoomed around which means its time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week our theme is:
JUST ADD GLIMMER
You can interpret this any way you like. Maybe with a pearl sheen or glittery glitter on your project. Its totally up to you!!
I decided to combine two of my favourite techniques as they both add a bit of glimmer, shimmer and shine:
How I love heat embossing, especially with silver or gold, its so magical!!
I started this off by stamping and heat embossing the snowflake in silver in a random pattern on the card front. I die-cut two rectangles from white CS and then used a smaller rectangle to cut a window in one. I stamped the ornament and heat embossed the snowflake in silver and stamped the sentiment in black on the still intact rectangle piece. A piece of acetate was glued behind the window and lots of foam tape added around the back edge.
I put a nice big pile of turquoise and clear sequins with some silver stars and circles on top of the ornament stamp and put the window piece on top, sealing the shaker. The shaker was then adhered to the card front. I haven't added much stamping to the inside of my shakers before, its such a good idea, will definitely do it again!!
All of the stamps are from Simon Says Stamp 'Presents and Ornaments' and the sequins and rectangle die are from Pretty Pink Posh.
I have three challenges I would like to enter:
Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge (Love that Technique)
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Die Crazy)
Simply Create Too Challenge # 94 (Early Holiday Wishes)
