Using up your Stash- Glitter and and Glitz Gel

If you are joining us for the "Use Your Stash Blog Hop" you are right on track. WELCOME! You should be coming from Rachel's Blog. There are 9 participants this month. If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on Rachel's Blog.

Let's get started. Today I am showcasing a Joy Fold card I made for a card swap I am in. I used the glitter to highlight within the card.

 This is the front of the card. It is held shut by the surf board. While the picture it is hard to tell I used glitter on the word sunshine. This was achieved by using Versamark over the stamped image "sunshine" then poured glitter over the versamark.



when you open it up I left it clean for any type of message to be written. To give it a little something I took my glitter glitz and put it in the white section of the turtle's shell. (again with the picture it may be hard to see.)

Rockin Hearts Team Blog Hop- Holiday color theme

Today the Rockin Hearts Team is focusing on their favorite holiday color theme . Check out my take on this theme, then simply follow the links below to the other hoppers!


For this I actually dug through my stash to use up some of my old Christmas stash to work on my Christmas cards. Specifically those small pieces of stash that get thrown out if they don't work well on a layout and just sit around forever. 

 I colored in the lights with the Close to my Heart markers to make sure they were nice and bright.

Supply list: 
 CTMH retired holiday paper
Topiary marker: Z2413
Cranberry marker: Z2419
Topiary Cardstock:X5635
Stardust Glitter Glitz: Z1313
Brown and Tan Sparkles:Z1753

Now before you go check out the rest of the team's take on this theme from the links below. Be sure to come back over the next few days to see if other team members have joined in on the fun.
