Leave a little 'Sparkle'

It's Saturday and that's Just Us Girls Challenge Day
I had a fun and messy afternoon after seeing a 
'new to me' technique on YouTube.
It's Hot Glue Embossing and thought it would be 
something different for our Word Week
hosted by Carol Mc choosing 'Sparkle'

and a closer look at the 'sparkle'

It does look just like a big mess that went wrong but - 
I made quite a few. Some turned out,
others hmm! Just had to pick which one I liked
and go from there.
This was soooooooooo hard to photograph
to show the 'sparkle' (I tried)
I think the sparkly embossing powder 
may have been a little too fine.
Background is smooched Magical's.
Dribbled hot glue and thought I would try and add foil
 which worked out nicely then I smothered it with
very fine sparkly embossing powder.
Added a small frame behind it with the same paper
as my metallic base only a lighter weight.
After much searching I finally found a sentiment
that fitted the challenge perfectly - 
Tim's Small Talk.

 Decided to show another since I had several
sitting on my desk.
This is a little different - not sparkly as such
It was heat embossed in copper and added
Stampendous embossing enamel which highlighted
the sheen from the Magical's background.
Distressed the edges, added a sentiment,
framed in metallic paper and finished with
the bright card base.

What a fabulous challenge. Hope to see
 lots of sparkle in all forms in the Gallery.
Thanks for visiting

Love U

 Welcome to our February Challenges at
Valentine's Day will be in vogue so we have
HEARTS! as our Theme for this one.

Had lots of fun mixing things up here
moving away from the traditional  'heart' type card.
Added heart and love die cuts, dp's,
u die from an old CB  set, cheesecloth.
Background has a patterned cover plate
which is a little hard to see, attached to white card base.
Head over to  Our Blog as
my Sistahs have gone all out creating
an amazing variety of Heart Themed cards
you really are going to love!
Our Gallery will be a flutter of  'hearts'
and I look forward to checking them all out.
Will yours be there?
Thanks for taking time out to visit.

In the 'Pink' at Christmas Craft Creations

It's time for our New Challenge at Christmas Craft Creations
and this month we are going pink.

I love using kraft paper as it goes so nicely with pink.
I saw this card over on Pinterest quite a long time ago
 took my inspiration from that.
Used Spellbinders dies for my snowflake,
inked background in Versafine from retired SU Snow Burst, 
sentiment backed with pink strips, misted with perfect pearls
 and sequins to complete.
Pop over and see what my Team Mates created using pink
and come join in by adding yours to our Gallery.
Love to see you there.
