Fab 'n' Funky ~ Glitter & Sparkle

Hey there my lovely blog pals, it's time for a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky and I finally am back after my long break. Just in time for us to do our last challenge before the whole team takes a wee break over the Christmas season. Gosh this year has flown by. I can't believe how much we've packed into it! Right, onto the challenge at hand.


I've been caught up in the Christmas rush so chose to make a CAS card for this challenge using a lovely Lili of the Valley precoloured image. I've simply added some glitter to the snow and a simple sentiment from a Lili of the Valley Christmas Sentiment set. I had such fun making this one, I decided to make a whole set! I kept them completely CAS as I wanted to whip up a whole batch in a big hurry. So here's a few I created, all with a CAS similar theme.


I've drawn around the little snowfall spots on both these cards with a glue pen and sprinkled loose glitter over them. There was more glitter on me than the cards by the time I'd finished! This second card, I also added a little strip of gold glitter paper for an extra bit of Christmas glitz. I love how that simple touch elevated the whole feel of the card.


For this card, I used a lovely warm toned kraft card base and added pearl drops to the snowfall and used another lovely LOTV Christmas sentiment to finish the CAS design. Simples!


I made a few more cards using this fab combo of LOTV precoloured image and LOTV sentiment set and pulled together quite a few sweet quick Christmas cards. But I think that's enough pics for now! I was going to add the extras to the bottom of the post, but PicMonkey isn't playing nice right now, so I can't edit any more. But the rest are using images from the same precoloured LOTV image pad and similar layouts and sentiment stamps. So you get the gist. 


Come on over and join us for the last Fab 'n' Funky challenge of 2017 with your own Glitter & Sparkle card. I wonder if yours will be a Christmassy one or perhaps something else inspires you right now. We are being sponsored by the lovely Aurora Wings for this challenge. So there's a lovely prize up for grabs. I hope you'll come join in the fun and I'll see you again soon with another Christmas creation. Big hugs and wishes for a happy and healthy lead up to Christmas, Wends xoxo
