SUStars Holiday Hoopla

Welcome to SUStars Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop!  This is stop #6.  You may have come here from Deborah Robb's Thoughts of a Grasshopper.  If you have started here you may keep on going full circle to see all the wonderful projects.  If you get lost along the way, just click here to see links to all the stops.


My first project uses the beautiful Comfort & Joy stamp set and silver glitter paper, both from the Holiday Mini.  The image and sentiment are both heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I added some rhinestones in the corners for a little more sparkle! This is one of the cards my stampers are making this month.  It was very hard to get a good photo.  Maybe because of the glitter paper or maybe because it is so dark and dreary here.  I was using a light box, but outside lighting still plays a part in it.


This project uses Christmas Lodge stamp set, Frostwood Lodge designer paper, and Dazzling Details from the Holiday Mini.  See the close up below for a better view of the Dazzling Details.  Just be careful to dab it on if you are using it on an ink that is not waterproof.  It may smudge the image a little bit, but it is great to add some sparkle to your projects.


Your next stop will be RaissaStamps.  Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy the rest of your journey on this wonderful blog hop.
