Stampin' Pretty Pals December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with “All That Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine.  Maybe even a little of both.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this card I chose the Star of Light stamp set and coordinating framelits.  I heat embossed the sentiment using silver embossing powder and my heat tool.  Nothing says sparkle and shine to me quite like stars...I have always found it to be so peaceful in looking at the twinkling stars on a clear night.
I used silver foil for the additional stars and the center of the large star.  I love how the silver thread gives it that extra bling!  For a snowy background look I added some white craft ink to the swirls and curls embossed night of navy piece.
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s hoppers. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.  Mark your calendars for Wednesday, January 9, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share projects “From the Heart”. Don’t miss the fun.

    3. Oh my! You have used one of my all time favorite sets and taken it to the top! Everything you did, but especially the white on the embossing , is a WOW!!
