Hey! It’s the last #TexturalTuesdays post in the CLASSroom for Ellen Hutson before Christmas and All That Glitters is the card I made today. :)
Today’s card features some beautiful glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs, Distress Glitter, and Glitter Tape to make a “present”. Super easy and super fun!
Most people tend to think of using glitter as messy. Using glitter in this way leaves it feeling almost velvety smooth with almost no fallout. And so incredibly shiny!
The full tutorial for this All That Glitters card is on the CLASSroom blog, so I encourage you to check it out for further photos, steps, and ideas.
The stamp set that I have used is an exclusive to Ellen Hutson.com and is part of the Holiday 2016 Release. It is called Season to Sparkle and it was designed by über talented Julie Ebersole. If you are interested in any of the products that I used to make today’s card I always try to list them below. (They are affiliate links and I will make a small commission from each purchase that you make through me — thank you. ♥ )
So many things to wrap up before Christmas gets here…oops! Bad pun! But I hope that you enjoy today’s card and will head over and check out the full post to really see how I made the card today.
Thank you as always for taking the time to stop by. xo
Wow! Busy day! I’m also on The CLASSroom Blog today with a #TexturalTuesdays post and a cool Fuse-able Thank You card that I made using the We-R-Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!
My Fuse-Able Thank You card was really fun, but took me forever to make. This tool gets extremely hot. Like a glue gun where you scream and your fingers are instantly welded together. (Ask me how I know.) Or maybe it’s just me that screams like a small child with hot tools? (Please tell me I’m not the only one.)
Anyway, I would suggest watching a plethora of videos before even thinking of starting with the We-R-Memory Keeper Fuse Tool. If my card looks vaguely familiar? It’s because I CASE’d Julie Ebersole’s amazing card from YouTube HERE <— (click). Not gonna lie. Her brilliance blew my mind and I loved the way she used the patterned paper and went from there. That Julie is one creative chica!
Without scorching my fingers off I even made a teensy pocket for a few glittery hearts. A hole was punched and baker’s twine was threaded through to attach the small pocket to the larger one.
I can see a lot of variations of the above card, especially for Christmas. How fun would that be? Even making a small version for a little something special for each card. I LOVE that idea!! I might have to start now as I’m a renowned procraftinator. ;)

Yay!! The Design Team of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® is taking part in a Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn this week! And today is day TWO! Make sure to visit the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog AND the Lawn Fawn Blog each day for a chance to win prizes and to be inspired by the designers for each team. (Even me.)
The card I made above, for the Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn, uses beautiful patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Petite Paper Pack. And also the sweet Let’s Polka In the Meadow Collection Pack. It’s still super hot here in Nevada, so the beautiful colors in these collections reminds me of a desert sunset OR sunrise.
I, personally, love Big Hugs! How about you? :)
Use the Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts and die-cut the word “Big Hugs”. Adhere the die-cut using the Adhesive Sheets 4×6″. Stamp the birds from the Big Scripty Words stamp set, color with watercolors, then die cut using the matching dies. Add dimension to the birds with 3D Foam Squares – White Mix.
Attach the sequins using the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini. They stay in place perfectly with no glue or tackiness showing through. The E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser is my very favorite adhesive to use for flat surfaces and that’s what I used to adhere the white cardstock to the card base, and the plaid paper to the white cardstock.
Please don’t forget there’s a giveaway with our Blog Hop with Lawn Fawn so be sure to comment every day for your chance to win. And check out the Lawn Fawn blog for TONS more inspiration.

For my projects today I’m using some really awesome new coordinating new products! I looooove dies that coordinate with stamps, don’t you? I also used one of the new die sets as a stand alone project.
My first card features the oh-so fabulous Santa from the Tis the Season Stamps . I ♥LOVE♥ this Santa!! I used the stamp and coordinating die from Tis the Season Dies to cut this cutie out 3 times. And I used another super cute stamp from Santa’s Flight to really make the card “POP!”
Santa’s shades were made shiny were Black Enamel Accents and White Enamel Accents were used for the pom-poms on the hats. He was colored using Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Art GRIP® Color Pencils.
This is the second card I made and I neeeeeeeded to get watercolor-y. :) So I broke out my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set. After cutting the watercolor paper to size I loosely watercolored a background using colors I thought would be pleasing for Fall/Autumn.
Place a piece of watercolor paper onto a piece of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets, remove the liner paper and burnish well. Place your die on to the paper and run through the die-cutting machine. By doing this you have a perfectly die-cut piece with a sticky side that still has a liner on it — which can be removed when you are ready. I love these sheets!
I then very lightly watercolored the blooms and leaves from the Gourd-jus Dies set. After adding some thin strips of Little B washi, I simply adhered everything down — lifting the liner from the backs of the die-cut pieces and adding teensy pieces of foam to the back of the falling leaf. There’s not much left to completing this card. Stamping the sentiment and adding the embellishments…but the finished result is so lovely.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today as much as *I* enjoyed making them for you. These blog hops are so fun. Make sure you hop on over to the phenomenal SANDY ALLNOCK’S Blog to see what gloriousness she has created!
