Hey . . . hellooooooo! And Happy New Year!! That's right . . . today we officially close out 2013 so that tomorrow we can ring in 2014!! And to end and start things with a BANG, there's a new challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog where the theme is . . .
"Sparkle & Shine"
w/a Sassy Cheryl image, of course!
So . . . here's what I "whipped" together for my favorite guy to give to some of his fave co-workers . . . the nurses he works with!
OK . . . so here's the deal . . . I just discovered the coolest - and sparkliest - product!!
Here's a brief and easy TUTORIAL . . .
I created and colored the tags, as always . . . but then applied some Versamark watermark clear ink all over the tag. I then immediately dusted the entire surface with Heat & Stick Powder (from Stampin' Up . . . I hear Judikins also makes a similar product). I heated the tag surface with my heating tool . . . then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds (also from Stampin' Up . . . although I suspect any very fine glitter will work as well) . . . and applied heat again, just to set the glitter. And VOILA! Glittery gorgeousness!! I love this stuff . . . and plan to use it often!
Here are some closer views . . .
You may recognize this cutie! It's my sweet Maddie, of course! This image is called "Warm Winter Cocoa" and is available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's. Here's another tag . . .
Say "hi" again to Lucy Lou! She's all dressed up like a Christmas Tree! This little darlin' is one of the images in the "It Takes One to Know One" digi set . . . and can be found HERE in the "Oldies but Goodies" section of Sassy Cheryl's online store. And, next up, a closer look at the last tag in today's collection . . .
This sweetheart is Sassy Sally . . . and the image, titled "Tangled Up Christmas Caroler," is available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's! Such a fun addition to any gift!!
