Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen and Farmhouse Christmas card in a box that sparkles and shines by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

When this blog hop asked for something that Sparkles and Shines, I knew this card had lots of both!  This is a custom card in a box that I made for a client.  This Blueberry Bushel card in a box was covered in Sparkle Glimmer Paper. She wanted it to say something specific and it was customized to her needs. (That’s why some of the words are blurred out). So, the three side panels were printed from  my computer onto Whisper White CS and sponged the edges with Blueberry Bushel ink using a sponge dauber. I then added some snowflakes that were die cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Big Shot and the Blizzards Thinlit Die. (The blizzard die, just happens to be on sale *wink wink*). A few clear faceted gems added just a little more sparkle and shine.

I stamped the snowmen from the Stampin’ Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Memento Black ink and colored them with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. The snowmen were then fussy cut and adhered to the box using glue dots. I also added a few extra snowflakes around them.  The snowflakes are attached to clear acetate strips and the card with glue dots.  I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink and cut it out with a circle from the Circles Framelit Dies. Behind that I have a piece of Pacific Point CS that was cut with a scalloped circle from the Circles Framelit Dies. The circles were attached to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you are looking for the measurements to all the pieces here, they can be found on this prior post. There you will find a PDF tutorial and a video.
