GV Blog Hop - Bring on the Bling

Hello My Friends

It is so close to Christmas and life here in my house has gotten incredibly busy.  But I still wanted a chance to participate in the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop this month.

I'll keep this short as, with Christmas on Friday, I still have a million and one things to do in the next day or 2.  But for now, join me and some of my very talented friends as we show you FABULOUS projects that have BLING flashing and glittering from every angle!!   

You may just be starting the blog hop here (I'm Cynthia Millan) - or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup is listed at the bottom.

On to my card - I wanted my project to sparkle and shine like there's no tomorrow so I used silver embossing powder, silver metallic foil doilies and Basic Rhinestone Jewels to light up my card.  

The stamp set is a sneak peek for you.  I used First Sight, a new one set from the upcoming Spring Occasions catalogue.  Love the flourish that I embossed on the front and that I used to add silver embossed detailing to the outer edges of the Smoky Slate card.

And did anyone else notice how perfectly the fancy corners that you create with the Curvy Corner Trio punch (it is held over in the Spring catalogue!!) match the detailing on the metallic foil doilies that we sell?  How cute is that?

The challenge when you use this much bling, of course, is in getting a picture that does the card justice.  This was my first attempt - before I played with the lighting and the angles just a bit. 

Not quite as stunning, is it?!?

I hope you've enjoyed my card.  And don't forget to visit everyone else on the list below.  Hopping is fun and you will be amazed at the sheer gorgeousness of some of these projects!

Have a wonderful, joyful and joy-filled Christmas my friends, and God Bless,    ~Cynthia   <><

Poor Old Frosty the Snowman

Hello Friends.

I have seen a TON of cute snowman cards this winter but by far the cutest one I think is the melting snowman.  
As far as my neighbourhood goes, so far this year there are no snowmen in sight!
Not yet at any rate.
Because let's face it - Despite the fact that I live in CANADA, we just haven't had snowman weather!  The first 2 weeks of December have been unusually warm here (~10 C / 50 F).
Melted puddle below Frosty.....

So here is my version of how December feels right about now.   I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree Builder Punch to create my melted Frosty.  And a sponge dauber with versamark and clear embossing powder did the trick to make the puddle.

I will try to get a quick video up and running in a day or 2 to show you how quickly and easily this card goes together.  For now though, enjoy the card and have a wonderful week ahead!

God Bless,   ~Cynthia    <><
