Shimmer, Glimmer, Sparkle, and Shine Blog Hop

Welcome! Today, the Technique Junkies Newsletter Designers are sharing some great artwork from our brand new CD, Shimmer, Glimmer, Sparkle and Shine! This CD contains 45 pdf tutorials in step-by-step pictorial format -- all printable to 8-1/2” x 11” paper.  Tutorials and card ideas for using glitter, shimmer mists, glimmery paints, gold leafing, foils and so much more!  This CD also includes primers for making your own shimmering paints, colored glitter, and glimmering mists, too!

You should have come from Ann Clack's blog to arrive here.  Ann created a wonderfully glittery butterfly on her card, didn't she?  It's gorgeous!  If you haven’t started at the beginning of the hop, visit Judy on the Designer’s Blog so as not to miss a thing! 

Before I get started with my projects, I want to let you know that a prize will be given away!  To be considered for this drawing, leave a comment on each blog in this hop.  One lucky winner will get a brand new Shimmer, Glimmer, Sparkle, and Shine CD!!  Wanna see what tutorials are on this CD?  Click here to see the Table of Contents with pictures of each technique.

I was in a purple mood when I was creating these cards for this blog hop.  My first card uses the awesome Glazed Chipboard technique.  The glitter that I used on this flower was a nice match to my Razzleberry cardstock, and the sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I have fallen in love with this Glazed Chipboard technique!  It's so fun and easy, and I have tons of chipboard and glitter that will be put to good use!




 My second card utilizes the Embossed Stickles technique with some sweet lavender flowers.  I love the way this turned out - so shimmery and glittery!  I added extra shimmer by covering my punched butterflies with Star Dust Stickles and scattering them randomly on my card.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.


I know you want to get your hands on this CD.  Click on the button below to buy it now - it's only $14.95.  That's a fantastic deal!  You get 45 step-by-step tutorials with samples for each technique.
