Happy Holidays!

Published by at 8:20 am under Uncategorized

Testing… does this blog still work? If so… and if you are reading this, then thank you very much!!! I hope everyone is well! I haven’t made a “Just because I really wanted to make a card” card in so long that I thought I’d post it.

 

Here’s a close up of the glitter.

 

 

I used the Inkadinkado Clear set, Ornate Christmas. Martha Glitter on the snowman, scarf, hat and black snowflake.  Martha embossed snowflake punch. Paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle.

 

Speaking of Martha Stewart Glitter.. I had alot of fun altering some ornaments for our tree this year. :) I couldn’t bear to throw away a bunch of old gold ornaments I had bought years ago. They were pretty…just gold, which is fine but doesn’t match my things anymore. Although the pictures aren’t the best (I need a new camera..my battery and charger are shot, so I rely on the Iphone for everything) I thought I’d share them with you. I was proud of myself.

Half of them I spray painted a Glossy White and the other Half with Rustoleum’s  Metallic Silver. Once dried and fully covered, I sprayed adhesive onto them, sprinkled with various Martha Stewart Glitter (the coarser snow and crystal like glitter) and then sprayed a clear gloss top coat of spray paint to help the glitter from falling off when touched. I think they turned out ok! I did some wire stars as well, but need to get pictures taken. Here’s a picture of the finished tree. Too bad you can’t tell the wall behind the tree is silver too…it reflects so neat at night.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
