CAS Christmas August Challenge

Hi everyone.  Welcome to the start of the CAS Christmas August Challenge - Glitter.  This month I'm hosting and I want to see the gallery filled with sparkle!! :)

We also have a wonderful Guest Designer joining us this month.  Welcome Michelle (Seashell Creations)!


I find that glitter pastes are one of the sparkliest products.  And then I discovered the sparkliest of sparkle with the paste used on the above card.  It's made by Cosmic Shimmer and is called "Silver Chrome".  Not only is it filled with glitter, but it has chunky glitter as well that reflects light to make it extra special.  Love it!

I used it through a new stencil I bought from Magenta.  This is such a beautiful branch and berry image and looks spectacular with the chunky glitter paste on black card stock.

I stamped my sentiment in Versamark, heat embossed in silver and then stamped and heat embossed again over top with Silver Tinsel embossing paste.  Hard to see in the photo, but the sentiment has lots of sparkle as well. :)

Here's a close-up ...
I hope you'll play along with our challenge.  It will be Christmas before you know it!

That is SO classy! Love the black and silver and thanks for the reminder of that technique. I haven't done that this year yet and it's a fun way to make a card. Thanks again for the inspiration!

I love this stencil and I used it and your glitter paste at the retreat. I'm not sure if it's the same glitter paste, but I love the sparkle and need to put it on a card! Your's is gorgeous and the embossed sentiment is so perfect with it!

You completely nailed it, Loll! Goooootgeous card. Super sparkly and stunning against the black. I ordered that glitter paste a month ago from SSS when you sent me the link, and no surprise, I didn’t receive it in time. Maybe for my reminder card. *lol*😂 xx

Wow! That definitely have some brilliant sparkle Loll and I love it. Haven't seen this embossing paste before but it is very shiny and made such a beautiful Christmas card using that beautiful stencil. The black card base was perfect to showcase it, I can't even imagine how beautiful it looks in person. Hugs, Brenda
