Happy New Year everyone, hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for a new year of crafting fun!!  I choose to use the digi version of Happily Ever After to create a shadow box. For the background and frame around the outside, I started with a piece of sticker paper, removed the backing and placed a piece of lace on top of the adhesive.  The entire piece was glittered using Golden Silver glitter.  The lace was removed and the remaining area was glittered using Silver Dreams glitter.  This is the Lace Background technique, you will find a tutorial HERE on how to create this beautiful sparkly paper.  The shadow box was then cut using a svg file and my Silhouette.  

 The image was printed using the color image and cut out using my Silhouette.  Glitter was added to small areas of the bride and groom using a glue pen, Sparkling Snow and Spirited Green glitter.  

Small dots of Opal Liquid Pearls was added to the bride's hair.

The flowers were die cut using Tim Holtz's Tattered Flowers from white cardstock and inked with Memento Rose Bud ink.  The wedding rings were cut using a svg file from sticker paper and glittered using Golden Silver and Sparkling Snow glitter.  The flowers were layered on the shadow box using pop dots.  A small Pull Ribbon bow was added behind the flowers.  The sentiment was printed, fussy cut apart and placed on frame using pop dots.  Pearls were added to the flowers and frame.

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we do.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.

Season Greetings

Good morning everyone, hope your day is off to a great start!!  Today I would like to share a card using embossable acetate, stamps, tissue paper and glitter.

To start with I stamped the background images on a piece of cardstock.  I used the trees from SNS Winter Swirl stamp set.  Next I used the antistatic bag on my piece of acetate.  The sleigh from, SNS Sleigh Ride stamp set was stamped onto the embossable acetate using versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP. 

Flip the embossed image over and place Glossy Accents over the entire image.  I used a small piece of blue gelato and mixed it with the Glossy Accents to create this pretty blue color.  A light dusting of Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the Glossy Accents.  

I then placed a piece of white tissue on top of the wet Glossy Accents smoothed out the wrinkles and flipped over.  This was then placed on top of the Winter Tree stamped image .  Let dry completely about an hour.  I then die cut the entire piece using Sizzix Funky Label dies.

Using a piece of glitter paper, I created a frame using the Funky Labels.  The background paper was embossed with Anna Griffin's Snowflake Embossing Folder.
The background paper was then layered onto a 5.25 x 5.25 card.  A small line of glitter was added to the edges using a glue pen and Sassy Silver glitter.


I placed a piece of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape on top of white cardstock.  Removed the backing and cover with Cloud Nine Glitter. I stamped the sentiment from the Sleigh Ride stamp set with black ink on top of the glitter.  Fussy cut around the wording.  

The snowflake was die cut using Anna Griffin's die and sticker paper.  The snowflake was glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day and remember....Keep Stamping!!
