Razzle Dazzle Blog Hop



Hello there:)
I'm posting two cards today that I created for the Razzle Dazzle Blog Hop with Denami!
If you are interested in following along and potentially winning one of TWO $20 gift certificates to the store, then start at the beginning (here), and leave a comment at each stop along the way:)


Since I'm the second stop, right after the amazingly talented, and incredibly sweet Paulina, you probably aren't lost yet *grin*. But I know she opened the hop with jaw-dropping perfection. That girl can CREATE!
As you can see, I created two cards, basically the same LO, only using different colors and supplies for the "razzle dazzle" part. Both used white embossed pine trees and brown embossed winter trees. 

I love the tree stamps from Denami. Love. So I thought adding some glittery snow and/or sparkle decorations would make these trees shine!

Supplies used:
Quickie Glue Pen (LIFESAVER FOR ADDING GLITTER!)
and


 Can you see how those gorgeous sequins pick up the colors and lights around them? Amazing, if I do say so myself. And the magenta glitter garland and "snow" just make me so happy:) Who doesn't like a little glitz now and then? :) White christmas trees are happy, even if cutting them out takes a while.


Here you can see just how good that flock looks. Especially when combined with touches of that extra fine silvery/white glitter! And the gold glitter made that Star Burst stamp come to life!

I hope you were inspired by visiting me today. Although living in the snow belt of NY state can leave much to be desired, seeing all that beautiful, glittery snow on the evergreen trees, and weighing down the branches of the leafless winter trees makes me thankful for all the seasons I get to experience here.

The next stop in this hop is LYNE! Go see what inspiration she has for you, and be sure to leave a comment before you go to increase your chances of winning a $20 gift certificate!

Thanks for hopping by,
XOXO
