Glitter is Glam!!!

Hello everyone and happy Friday!!! First...drum roll please.....I finished my Christmas decorating!!! Whoohoo!!! The tree is up and all the nooks and crannys are glammed up with Santas, Snowmen, Angels, and lots of sparkle!!! Speaking of sparkle....check out the latest challenge on the Moxie Fab World's all about Glitter is Glam!! We are to use glitter in innovative ways. I should enter my face and clothes cause I look mighty sparkly after working with glitter all evening...LOL!!!
On my first card I used scalloped sticker strips....added them to the dp, removed the paper, and added the glitter. The snowflake sticker is from the Tinsel and Twig collection by The Girls Paperie and the sentiment is from the Gingerbread Man set by Imaginisce Snag'em Stamps.
Stamps: Gingerbread Man by Snag'em stamps
Paper: Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Grey
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Scalloped Sticky Strips, Snowflake sticker, Bakers Twine, Round Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Glitter

I used a Martha Stewart sticky wreath from her Glittered Botanical Card Kit and the dark green glitter from the same kit. My DD gave me the kit a year or so ago to use when the Grands come over and want to play in Grandma's craft room...silly girl!!! I usually hide the glitter from the little darlings...LOL!!! The tricky part was trying to get all the excess glitter off the card!! Rhinestones and the sentiment from Waltzingmouse's Complements of the Season stamp set finish it off.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse
Paper: Real Red, White, Prism Classic Green
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Martha Stewart Botanical Card Kit, Rhinestones
I used the Martha Stewart Botanical Card Kit on this card, too, and stickers from Tinsel and Twigs sticker book were used for the sentiment......pretty simple but I love the sparkle!!

Thanks for dropping by....I hope you have a great start to your weekend!!!

Oh my these are sparkly, love how you have them all glittered up using the sticky from stickers. I always end up with glitter on me from head to toe, my DH always laughs at me. You should enter these over at Fresh Brewed, she has Sparkle and Shine and these sure do sparkle. Have a great weekend, I bet your house is gorgeous, if you cards are a sample.

Wow Joan, you really glammed and glittered it up! Great cards and looks like just the right amount of glitter and right in the perfect places! Those ric rac stripes are great on the teeny pin dots dp. Love the red rhinestones on the wreath, I am sure that I would have put too much glitter for them to stay on the card :)
I am working on finishing the decorating today and tomorrow...and working on a glitter card too ;)
