Okay, if you couldn't tell from the title of this post....
a bit excited over the moon excited to enjoy the fun and honor of being Guest Designer for the next challenge over at
The theme for this new fortnightly challenge is a great one:
It's a Bling Thing!
So get out that glitter, those rhinestones, those charms....
Whatever your heart fancies and bling it up, baby!
I was given Karmi Kornpops to play with for this challenge and I'm completely in love with her. Heather is such a talented lady! Her digis are so original and fun to use. I'm constantly inspired by the little cuties I find in her store. She's just opened an Etsy shop too. You can find loads of her images there with more to be added very soon.
Go check it out here.
|I love the way the glitter paper really sparkles!|
The papers were my jumping off point for the design of this card.
|In this photo and the one below,|
you can see the rhinestone swirls that I used.
They actually began life as one very large swirl that I cut apart
so they would fit in the small spaces available for more bling.
|You can see the dimension the pop dots add to the image and mats.|
|Putting the glitter on the roses quickly reminded me why I very rarely|
use glitter. Not only do I make an incredible mess with it but this time
I got some in my eye too. FYI: That is not a pleasant experience.
