Shimmer Glimmer Sparkle and Shine CD Blog Hop!! by Judy Jackson


Welcome!  Do you love shimmer and glimmer and shine? Then have we got a Blog Hop for YOU!!

Today is a big day for  the Technique Junkie community!  The Design Team has the pleasure of  showing our Blog readers a few of the gorgeous techniques on the newest CD!  So hop along and enjoy the journey through our Blog HOP.  This blog post is the beginning of the Blog Hop and we all hope you will enjoy the hop! 

My first card (above) is the Foiled and Glittered technique.  This is one of those techniques that made me say, "Oh wonderful!  I have that gold leafing and I haven't used it in years!"  There  is no stamping but I used a embossing folder and a die cut on this card.  The shimmer is just beautiful on this card!

My next card (above) uses the Distressed Pearls technique.  Stamp credits belong to Artistic Outpost.I also used the Cuttlebug Smoosh technique from November 2007. I used Distress Stains instead of brayering ink. Oh so shimmery!


This card (above) uses resist technique called Distress Shimmer Resist. This is one of my favorites on this CD.  You never know exactly how the card stock will look when you are done, and I love the variations of colors and the shimmer on this card.   Stamp credits go to Stampers Anonymous and Stampin' Up! Just gorgeous shimmers!



My last card (above) for you today uses the Distress Marker Shimmer.  It is a wonderful way to create an unusual background.  I also used some scraps of designer paper for additional interest.  Stamp credits go to Stampin' Up. Such sparkle!

I just love this Glimmer Shimmer Sparkle and Shine CD.  I know you are going to love all of the cards and projects from the Design team on this Blog Hop!  Make sure you visit every blog on the Hop.
