Shimmer, Gimmer, Sparkle and Shine- New CD Blog Hop!

I am joining the rest of the Technique Junkies Design Team today to share some great artwork from the brand new CD, **Shimmer, Glimmer, Sparkle and Shine**!  I had so much fun creating with techniques from the CD- I think it is my favorite CD so far!!! 

  You will want to start the HOP at the beginning, visit Judy on the Designer’s Blog so as not to miss a thing!  (The entire Blog Hop list is noted there).
  You have just visited Holly's Blog - she made a couple of fabulous projects, didn't she?  It seems we both had purple in mind for designing!    I love the butterflies she added to her card too.....!

 ( THIS is a link to the PDF from the CD to show you some of the fun ideas from the CD. )

 I used two techniques from the new CD. I started with the Glimmering Gelato tutorial:

   The image (HERE) and the border die are from Sweet Stamps.  I also added Stickles around the opening of the die cut, and added Copic coloring to the rhinestones.  The cardstock is by Coordinations.

 Next, I used a technique called Frosted Dylusions. This technique makes two cards:


  I used an image from Sweet Stamps colored in Copic markers. The BG stamp is (a retired) Stampin Up. I colored the ribbon with Copic Marker. The dies are by Cherry Lynn Designs- available at Sweet Stamps.

  While doing this technique, you will have 'left overs-ink" for a second piece.
The flower (Sweet Stamps) is another sample of Glimmering Gelato's (I used red and pink for the flower head and 2 shades of greens on the stem). The inks for the background are the same as above- Dylusions Purple, Yellow and Red. The layer behind the technique is an Iridiscent Vellum (so does not look green IRL).

  Next on the Blog Hop- using a fun technique with Glimmer Mists is Hetty.

One lucky person that makes a comment on each of the participating DT blogs will WIN one of the new CD's. Pat Huntoon will announce the winner on her blog next week.
