A Pretty Poinsettia -- for Eureka Stamps

It's Monday, and time for a new challenge at Eureka Stamps.  This week, our theme is "Use glitter".  UGH!  If you know me at all, you know I stay away from the stuff at all costs.  Glitter and I do NOT mix!  This challenge was just that -- a challenge.  However, with some new products I wanted to try out, I managed to make a mess (of course), get glitter everywhere (I always do), AND have fun.  I guess that's what this hobby is all about!

I used the Eureka Stamps digi, Poinsettia (digi16501) and colored it with Copic markers.  Then, the glittering began.  I added several shades of Stickles glitter glue to the Poinsettia itself.  I used gold Frantage by Stampendous around the edges of the diecut, then mounted it on American Crafts glitter paper.  The designer paper is by Echo Park. The "joy" sentiment is a diecut from Lawn Fawn.  The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM. It is from the Ribbon Candy Bundle
The cardstock base is from Close To My Heart.
I had my glitter challenge -- I hope you join us this week at Eureka Stamps and glitter up your own project.  I'd love to see what you make!

  1. Julie, your card is beautiful. I'm like you, I tend to stay away from loose glitter (don't like the mess) but I love using stickles. You did a great job on this card. Merry Christmas.
