SDC44 Shimmer, Glitter, Glimmer and Glitz.



It's been a while since I managed a post, sorry about that, life and Christmas etc, one thing and another. Still, I'm now pretty much set for the weekend and now must get cracking with putting my images on here over the next few days (I misplaced my camera too amongst all the wrapping up frenzy but have now found it again under all the ribbon and packing!)

Today is the beginning of the second week of the Stampotique challenge SDC44 Shimmer, Glimmer, Glitter and Glitz. The link option on here to place within my post seems to have disappeared (anyone else having that problem?) but you can find the link on my sidebar on the left.

As it was a blingy challenge, something I'm not really reknown for, I went flat out and went TOTAL BLING by swiping the tag with an embossing pad and covering the background with sparkle glitter embossing powder as well as additional sequins and glitter.

Here's a close up to show that using all things 'sparkle' doen't mean it has to be twee.

Kind of grunge-sparkle.



Please join in if you need a crafting stampy fix over the Christmas holiday. You could win yourself a $30 gift certificate that is drawn at random for one lucky participant!!

The stamps I used are all by Stampotique Originals. Daniel's Hearts, 3017 Crown, Enjoy Life and Jill Penney.

Your tag is gorgeous Jo, & my daughter thinks it's 'sooooooo hot!' I now have to make her a Christmas card along the same lines!
I had the same problem with the link button, on my DT blogger site, ended up upgrading, then it appeared again! My own blog is Wordpress, so I got 'V' confused! Lol!
Happy Christmas Wishes,
Alison xx

I think you may have just invented a new phrase :D

Your tag is stunning and I can only imagine how blingy it must be in real life!

You'll be pleased to know that I've finished my sqaush book and am busily working on a few more (well except for when I'm having a little skive on here!!)

Have a fantastic Christmas Jo, see you in the new year (hopefully).
