Glitter glitter on the floor, glitter glitter on the desk… in my hair and everywhere. I use a coffee filter to sprinkle my embossing powder and glitter over when making something sparkle. Apparently I did not put away the remnants from my last glitter adventure. I don’t believe I have seen an actual glitter cloud before. I made the mistake of snatching up my coffee filter without checking if there were contents…. Thank goodness for my Glitter Clean up cloth, it made short work of the clean up for the most part.

This post is for Clean and Simple stamping FTL154, they have teamed up with Jingle Belles for this challenge. The sketch is fabulous however my little internal jury is still out on my card.

I cut the large snowflake out using a Be Creative Tape sheet and my Cricut Winter Lace, I used Canadian Blue Jewel Glitter Ritz to make it sparkle. I stamped some smaller snowflakes with my glue pad and also sprinkled them with glitter. The remaining snowflakes and sentiment were stamped with various VersaColor mini pads.

  1. LOVE it, my talented Sis, from the teensy little bow, to the scallop and the stamp is excellent. Everything just sings - almost makes me THINK about winter (sitting here in 34 degrees heat) but not quite! You're an inspiration, I will have to pay more too!

    Love ya,

  2. Glad I'm not the only one who sends sparkling things flying through the air ... although it's usually my clear embossing powder that goes everywhere ... love those beautiful shades of blue ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.

  3. Blue and white - so classy! And snowflakes always make me want to have snow NOW! Especially as we don't have a summer worth mentioning anyway.

  4. well tell that internal jury to COME BACK IN and shout "♥HOORAY!♥" b/c this is GORGEOUSNESS by anyone's standard as well as being a wonderful take on both the sketch and the C&S vibe! love it!

    ps: i'm chuckling over your glitter hijinks. there is always a little bit of glitter on me SOMEWHERE... i call it a "lifestyle" now and embrace it! :) :) :)

  5. I wish I'd seen the glitter cloud!! Love this card - the snowflakes are just gorgeous!

    Here's mine!

  6. Nina, this is striking and beautiful!
