CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop: Sparkles, Pearl Opaques, and Glitz, Oh My!

Welcome to the December edition of our Close To My Heart "Product Spotlight" blog hop! This month to help your holidays (and more) really shine, we're featuring our affordable Sparkles and Pearl Opaques. These self-stick gems are truly the finishing touch for any project!

(If you're coming from Sweet Aline's fabulous blog then you're hopping along. Head to Vicki's world of wicked craftiness next for some amazing creations!)

My project began with our plain white chipboard Dimensional Elements Ornaments. On each of the bases, I adhered different patterns of the Jingle Creative Basics paper collection. Then I glued on the girls' picture.

To decorate the front panel, I mixed Juniper reinker with Create-A-Shade pearlescent paint.

For the Juniper border around the date, I applied Liquid Glass and then sprinkled on Prisma Glitter. Did you notice the Glitz Glue border around the edge of the ornament?

Have you ever added a Sparkle to a brad? Give it a try for some pizzaz!

Clustering the sparkles made this ornmanet really shine. Can you see the Glitz Glue inside the open holes along the bottom border of the ornament?

Here are close ups of both ornaments. I'll be keeping one, but the other is a gift. :)

Before you head out to Vicki's blog, be sure to check out peeks at another project I've finished and will be posting soon.

  11. Very pretty (and sweet). I especially love how the paper has a pearly sheen and I never thought of adding a gem to a brad. What a great touch! I agree with Helen in that these will be ornaments to treasure.
