IMG_0097Here in my neck of the woods the snow is falling and my kiddos are playing in their winter wonderland.  We’re expecting nearly 2 feet of snow today!

Snow and ice have a beautiful effect on nature…the way they cover the trees is breathtaking.  In the same way, when we create a card or other paper craft, applying some bling to our projects adds an easy wow factor.  Today, the Sisters In Stamping are sharing projects featuring anything that sparkles – a perfect enhancement to the wintery scene I’m seeing outside my window!

One of my newest favorite “blingy” thing from the Occasions catalog is the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.  I really do love all the glimmer paper options SU! offers.  It is such an easy and mess-free way to incorporate glitter to your projects.  And the Balloon Bouquet Punch makes creating these cute birthday balloons ready for the party!


Here are all the items used to create this birthday card:

As always, be sure to coordinate your envelope with your card.  It makes the receiver feel the entire package was deliberately created for them!

Every month my customers have an opportunity to earn Bonus Blessings. Here’s how you can participate and what you need to know:

  • When you place a qualifying order and use the monthly Hostess Code, you’ll automatically be added to my Bonus Blessings list.
  • Bonus Blessings are mailed around 2 weeks after the end of the month.
  • Check back monthly for details on the Bonus Blessings gift and qualifying order amount (as it may change each month).
  • Smaller orders may qualify when you place multiple orders throughout the month, using the hostess code, if the combined totals equal or exceed the qualifying order amount.
  • If your order is $150 or more, please omit the hostess code so you can select your Stampin’ Rewards! You will still qualify for my Bonus Blessings program.
  • Limit: one gift per customer per month
