Three Amigos December 2016 Blog Hop


Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we are using three embellishments on our projects. Lisa has been trying to get me to enter challenges for ages now, so this month I am linking my card to the Glitter & Bling challenge at Between The Folds Weekly Challenges.



This card has been dancing around in my head for a while now. Once I sat down to make it, it came together quite quickly. I knew I wanted to use the shimmery champagne ribbon from the Uptown Ribbon Pack and some Bitty Sparkles for two of my embellishments, but had a hard time deciding on a third. I finally chose the white Enamel Gems (they are included in the Grey Enamel Gems package). I cut the snowflakes from White and Sea Glass Glitter Papers using the Snowflakes Thin Cuts.



Cashmere isn't one of the coordinating colors listed with the Oh Deer! paper pack, but after trying Bamboo and Desert Sand, i found that it gave the card the feel I was looking for. Did you notice something I didn't do to my card? If you know me well, you know that I ink the edges of everything! I wanted to keep this card simple and clean, so I ditched the ink this time. I'm happy with the result!


Here's a detail shot of the shimmer and bling. I love the Glitter Paper!
