Sparkle All Day

Hi, All! Hope your February is going well and you haven't been over-Polar Vortexed. I'm in Michigan and it's been quite the winter. With all the dreary days, I thought something bright and sparkly was in order. So I created this stunningly shimmery card using a few marvelous TJ supplies:  

And here is the card!

Just look at all that shimmer and sparkle and shine...YUM! It was a simple process with a stunning result. I started with a piece of black CS and the stencil taped to my glass mat. I added the three colors of Glimmer Paste. All three pastes used were from the iridescent family, so you can see a lot of color change and movement as you tilt the piece around. I removed the stencil (and immediately washed it with soapy water), and set the piece aside to dry (doesn't take long!). I took a smaller piece of CS and, using the MISTI, stamped the sentiment with Versamark. I added silver EP and heat set the piece. I trimmed the piece down very precisely using the new CutAlign tool. I love this new tool!

Going back to the first piece, I added a generous spray of Iridescent Shimmering Bliss Topper. You can see how well that shows up on the dark cardstock, and totally enhances the Glimmer Paste!

Once dry (again, doesn't take long!), I edged the panel and sentiment piece using the Silver Glitter Marker. The panel was then attached to a black A2 card base using foam tape to give it some dimension. To the sentiment piece, I added some fibers on the back, along with more foam tape and attached that to the card. A couple of Robin's Nest Dew Drops nicely finished off the card.  

I hope you manage to sparkle all day, even if it isn't a Monday! To help you with that sparkle, you can save 10% off the TJ products used by adding my special code at checkout:
