Sparkle and shine

Two cards today, as I'm trying to catch up with a few challenges.  I don't use glitter card very often, but it IS nearly Christmas!  All the non-shed glitter card was bought from the local pound shop, a bargain at 10 sheets for £1.   

Beccy's Place Challenge this month is up to the letter 'Y', so my Christmas card has 'Three 'Ys' Men' ! 😉

The stamp is by Lavinia, 'Three Kings', stamped with Versafine' Onyx Black' onto a background made with Adirondack ink pads and Ink dusters.  The image is die cut with a Memory Box 'Stitched Rectangle' die and matted on non-shed glitter card. The panel is die cut with a Die-namies 'Peek-a-boo Stars' die on white card.  A strip of silver glitter card was attached behind, before attaching to the card blank.  The three larger stars are punched with an X-cut punch.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:

Onto my second card.

I've used the same stars die for the panel, but this time attached strips of silver and pinky/purple glitter card behind the star apertures.  The fairy is a Poppystamps die, 'Posing Faerie' which I've matted and layered onto memory Box 'Stitched Oval' diecuts.  This was a quick card to make and I'm hoping there is enough white space for the Less is More Challenge this week.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:

Less is More Challenge #356 ~ Let it shine

  1. The silver glittery card works well with the Lavinia stamp, and what a fabulous scenic background you have made Liz, and the two pretty colours of glitter paper on the second with the sweet fairy is suitably shiny for the LIM challenge, two super cards. x

  2. Christmas does call for a touch of glitter - didn't realise pound shop had glitter card though. Clever interpretation of the three 'Y's.

  20. Your glittery cards are fabulous Liz, and you're right about Christmas needing a little bit of sparkle and shine! I love the wonderful silhouette image of the three Kings astride their camels, the blue is beautiful with the silver border. I also like the lovely pink glitter paper on your second card. I most love the fact that you said it's all NON-SHED. That's the worst part about using glitter... it ends up everywhere!
    Cheers,
    Beccy

  23. Beautiful cards here! What a bargain you got on that glitter card.
    It is very pricey here...over 3 dollars a sheet. Even at the dollar store it is 1.25 a sheet but often it is not non shedding
    The image is wonderful...it looks great with the stars.

    The fairy card is so pretty. I have that die but have not used it yet!
    Thanks for taking part in the November Rudolph Days Challenge.
