It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC92)! This week Barbara Anders is the challenge host! Barbara is challenging us to use glitter! You can use actual glitter, glittered cardstock, or items ready made with glitter! So, give your cards or projects just a touch of glitter or go all out with some sparkle! We would love to see what you create!


I am using Flourishes All That Glitters and Christmas Classics stamp sets!   I have been wanting to get me an all white artificial Christmas Tree to put into another room of the house at Christmastime just for fun.   I want to decorate it with some red and blue Christmas ornaments in various sizes.  When Barbara's challenge included glitter and  SCS CC269 colors are poppy, turquoise, and white, I was already thinking Christmas!   However, when I purchased from Mike's the Christmas Tree mini scrapbook shapes in the dollar bin, I just knew a glittery white Christmas Tree Tag was in the making.  I purchased some very glittery cardstock.  I traced the tree because the lines are all straight and it was pretty easy to cut out.  I adhered the glittery cardstock to the Christmas Tree tag.  I stamped several of the round ornaments that come in this set onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.  I cut out and used thicker pop dots on the larger circle ornaments and thinner dimensionals on the smaller ornaments to create varying dimension.  I then went sort of wild with my silver cording and silver beading.  My tree topper was made with a combination of silver cording and May Arts Curling Sparkly Ribbon. 


My tag also complies with a few other blog challenges!
Anything Goes:  Letter B (all my bows)!
Simon Says Challenge:  All White except image to color!
Little Red Wagon:  Use some RED!
Charisma Cardz Challenge:  With Love @ Christmas!
Pattie's Creations Design:  Christmas Card!
CYDA Challenge:  All White except image and embellies!
Paper Play Challenges:  Circles!


 Be sure to check out the blog team designers to see what they created with the glitter challenge!

  26. Talk about a "WOW" card this is over the top! I LOVE it and the colors are just gorgeous!!

    Thanks for the tip about the glitter paper:) Do you get any glitter on your hands touching it? What about when you cut it? LOL I wore gloves and a mask to spray the glimmer mist, I didn't want to cough or breathe to hard and have it fly all over the place LOL.

    Have a great day.
