shine on!

we're still celebrating all things sparkly, glittery and/or metallic at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and you're still invited to join the fun!


patterned paper and journal card: sweet peppermint collection, prima marketing + ledger paper packaging with liquitex modeling paste spread through tim holtz's gothic damask stencil; green core'dinations cardstock stamped with impression obsession's "bold vines" cover-a-card in leaf green archival; gold linen specialty paper and edge distresser: tonic studios; snowflake die: echo park; circle dies: sizzix; gold metallic doily from my stash; heart pearls: eyelet outlet; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

this week i've gone all shabby chic with papers and a journal card (from which i diecut the sentiment circle) from prima's luscious "sweet peppermint" collection, designed by frank garcia. so i have lots of distressed layers with wonky machine stitching, and i've added sparkly/metallic elements via a golden doily from my stash and snowflakes diecut from one of tonic studios' awesome specialty papers. i've even worked in a bit of packaging from some older prima flowers, (it's the green ledger paper layer) to which i've added plain white matte modeling paste, spread through a damask patterned stencil. a few eyelet outlet heart pearls top the whole thing off. here's a totally gratuitous detail shot, just because i spent aaaaaaages with the distressing tool, getting elegant-but-natural-looking edges lol:
