 The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flock.


I have a real preference for more spiritual cards at Christmas time so I was excited to use the new 3 Wise Men set.  I used the digital set and, after printing, colored it with Copic markers and cut it out.  Using a glue pen, I added Blue Haze Velvet glitter to the Wise Man on the left, Daisy Velvet glitter to the one in the middle, and Fairytale Lavender glitter to the one on the right.  I also added Aztec Gold glitter to each of the gifts.

They were layered on a darker purple layer that was embossed with an embossing folder and added to a slightly lighter layer.  Both were die cut with Spellbinders’ Radiant Rectangles.  I ran a little Dimensional Glue around the edge of the first layer and added more Fairytale Lavender glitter.  All of this was added to a piece of sticker paper and Bridal glitter was added to the remaining exposed adhesive.  I love the rich look of this glitter.  After another purple layer, all was added to a white card base.

The sentiment was die cut with a Spellbinders’ Back to Basics Tags die and sponged with Memento ink before removing from the die.  Using the Bling Your Brads technique, I added Yellow Spark embossing powder to two star brads, along with the fussy cut star image.  After adding the brads to both sides of the sentiment, it was popped up at the bottom of the image and the star was popped up at the top.

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we have enjoyed creating new projects for it.  We also hope that we have inspired you as well.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  (We love reading them too since your comments also inspire us.)  Last month the winning comment came from Eret's blog.  Who will be the Mystery Designer this month??

The next stop on our blog hop is Ani.
