Shimmer, Sparkle & Shine with Stampsmith!

   It's the first of the month, and you know what that means! It's another fabulous challenge at The Stampsmith! For the month of December, Valerie, our awesome host, has asked us to design something that shimmers, sparkles & shines and to use at least one Stampsmith stamp to be eligible to win the random prize draw at the end of the month!
  Really into tags. Can't stop making them! This lovely lady is from the Flappers #3  sheet at The Stampsmith Online store. I LOVE to use chalk to tint photo stamps! Have I told you that before?!
  The db is from Basic Grey, Jovial 6x6 pad set. I think it came out last year. The green ribbon is from The Dollar Store and the lace is from Michaels. Poinsettia and holly are K&Company. Used DI Fired Brick at the top of the tag.
   Before I attached her, I sprayed the entire tag with Glimmer Mist, Old Lace. Added bling. 
   
   Closeup: I left the flash on, so the glitter would show up better. The poinsettia is from K&Company: Glad Tidings: Poinsettia & Holly Layered Accent stickers. Popped up with foam square. Click on photos for larger images 
      
Here are some photos of the back of the tag. I covered tag with some more BG Jovial paper, then attached a paper sack, which I cut down a bit. You can buy them at Michaels in the gift wrap and bags section. The ticket is TH Journaling Tickets. Covered one side with matching BG paper. Attached an eyelet, added ribbon. On the other side of the ticket, is where you would jot down a personal message. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment stamp is Inkadinkadoo. 
   I was still experimenting with the tickets when I made this. I now make the ticket with TH Mini Ticket die cut set.
   
   Back of the tag:


   Hope everyone is having a creative week, and getting those cards and decorations made! I am behind and starting to stress a little! 
   Make sure you head over to The Stampsmith Challenge and see the entries and have a look at the DT members creative samples. Heck, why don't you enter something yourself?! We would love to have you play along! 
   A BIG thank you to all who played along in last months Stampsmith Challenge and our 1st Anniversary Blog Hop! Great fun! Congratulations to the winners! Have fun with your rubber!


Get inky!
Debbie
