Bling On the Holidays!

It's a special Christmas in July event at Jingle Belles; we are happy to be partnering with the lovely ladies of the Double Trouble Challenge for exponentially more fun AND a chance at some cool prizes! First, I'll tell you that our part of this event is called, "Bling On the Holidays" and we'd like to see your brand new holiday cards that include jewels, gems, pearls, sequins, glitter or pretty much anything sparkly! 

For the Double Trouble Challenge, it's "Christmas in July", and basically any holiday card will qualify; so if you make a card to link up with us at Jingle Belles, we hope you'll also link it with them to be included in their drawing! Then be sure to check back every fortnight or so, because they have a new challenge every other week and it's a great way to find some new challenges and loads of inspiration!

And now without further ado, here's my super-blingy card:

As you can see, I've added LOTS of Eyelet Outlet Bling, in the form of an XL Snowflake atop my white poinsettias, and also some Clear Swirl Bling that I've cut up and rearranged to fit the space better. All this takes place on top of a diecut holly panel (ancient Hero Arts!) that I misted with glimmery blue spray ink; layered over green metallic cardstock and ...though it's hard to see in the photo... a mat of white glitter paper.

Be sure to pop over to Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's beautifully bling-centric design, then visit the Double Trouble Challenge; oh and did I mention that there miiiiight just be some little prizes at each site? You know, if you like that sort of thing...? :)


  1. Beautiful and blingy for sure... love the non-traditional color of your card and all the sparkle using a string of Swirl Bling perfectly cut and placed on your card, and the bling in your poinsettia is gorgeous. Thank you for partnering with us at Double Trouble, and please don't forget to share your card with us at DTC.

    1. I was just reading About You... me too... we have the same favorite punctuation.

  2. Lauren, what a beautiful card you've created with so many layers and artistic blending! The white poinsettia with all it's bling looks just beautiful against the blue inked background!! I, too love ellipsis.. but try so hard to control myself :-) Thank you for sharing your talent and partnering with us here at Double Trouble for our "Christmas in July" challenge!!! -Donna

  3. This is so stunning!! I absolutely love the shade of blue that you used behind the white poinsettia. Turned out absolutely gorgeous! So glad you partnered with us at Double Trouble and you entered this amazing card in our gallery :)

  4. Lovely card, Lauren! I love the blend of blues. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #116.
