Challenge 7: Sparkle

Hi everyone! Thankyou for taking part in last week's challenge. This weeks challenge is - Sparkle! Use shiney card, gems or glitter. Try making an ATC, Card, Tag, Skinny, Scrapbook page, Fatbook Page (4x4) Gothic Arch, Moo Mini card, Skinny, Inchie or Altered Art. The design team have been busy making some ideas for you. We hope you have fun with this challenge!

Kate, Wendy, Lesley, Fifi, Becky & Jo


I stamped the image (unknown source) in black stayzon on to acetate, then highlighted the feather with currant alcohol ink. I covered the back of the acetate with clear glitter glue then mounted this on to tan card then layered onto gold card. I covered the base with Crafty Individuals backing papers and highlighted the white flowers with glitter glue. Lastly I mounted the image on to the top left of the base then added 3 bronze gems to finish.

I used dark & pale pink cardstock, pink primas & white buttons. The ribbons I used are by creative impressions and the paper is MME Valentine - Cupid's Toile and I used a vintage image. I stamped onto pink paper with my paper artsy words stamp and added lots of sparkle with my silver stickles.

For my card I have painted a piece of white card with Ecoline inks in three colours. Once dry I have sprayed with black webbing spray and while this was still wet I have added some black sparkling embossing powder in places and heat embossed. The bird is a Cornish Heritage Farm stamp and I have water coloured the image. I have then covered the piece in embossing ink and added some clear, super sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed. I have embellished with a piece of cuttlebug embossing, added silver eyelets and through this have threaded some shiny silver thread. The image is mounted 3D and I have popped three gems into the corner. Plenty of sparkle!

I stamped the Penny Black image 'Light the Night' and coloured in with twinkling H20s. I then added sparkly purple glitter to the scarf, bag, dress and flowers. I also added some sparkly silver sequins to the bottom of the card to create even more sparkle! I finally added some messages and flowers for decoration.

I stamped a Cuddly Buddly Emmy image and used glitter glue, glitter Sakura pen and pearly watercolour to colour her in! I matted her onto hologram fuschia pink card, and matted the heart paper onto pink glitter card. The I cut some flowers with my Big Shot out of the fuschia hologram, and used stickles for the centres!

I used my cricut to cut the word and the image of me!! Then I added lots of sparkle with gem jewellery. I mounted the girl on brown glitter card for added extra sparkle. Hey presto a really sparkly glittery shiny card !
