Hello! Today I'm sharing a project I made for Die Cut Diva's, following the theme of Glitter (which isn't my favorite thing, as it goes everyone where I don't want it!)-
My image is Puppy Girl (Bugaboo Stamps), colored with Copics. I used this Happy Birthday Sentiment (Spellbinders Sentiment One, but this one at Dies R Us would work well).
The glitter scroll is from Michaels-perfect for me to use as the glitter doesn't come off easily. After I try working with other forms of glitter, my husband always asks me if I've turned into a stripper. How can one person get so much on themselves? There's more on me than my project!
I think we all want to stretch our Christmas/Winter theme craft supplies. Today I used a snowflake die to embellish my card. Let's get right to it.
I colored the Bugaboo Digi Stamp - Puppy Girl image with coloring pencils. The girl has purple hair, I was inspired by the daughter of my friend, she had purple hair at one point and I thought that was cool. I added stickles to her grey pants, and the bow in her hair and on the puppy. And I embellished with some purple glitter paper snowflakes die cut using Poppy Stamps Die - Frozen Flakes.
Remember our July Challenge theme is Make It Glitter, and our sponsors are:
Hi there. Dawn back to share my Glittery Cupcake Christmas card. I've made a slightly smaller shaped card today....
Our monthly sponsors are
Here is my card
My image is a Bugaboo digital stamp - Christmas Cupcake Mistletoe. I printed it onto some Bristol paper and coloured with Tim Holtz distress markers. Added some glitter, Spectrum Noir sparkle pen and some glossy accents before fussy cutting it. My background is some watercolour tags, cut with an older Tim Holtz/Sizzix die (no available at DiesRUs but there are lots of amazing dies there to choose from) and trimmed the sides off. I added some sparkle and shimmer with Sparkle Medium from Imagination Crafts in the colour Welsh Gold. It is super sparkly. My sentiment is a WPlus9 one, cut from some shimmer card in a pretty brown. DiesRUs have an awesome supply of word dies for you.
So looking forward to seeing all your glittery cards in the challenge. You can add your card here.
For today's card, I use the Snowglobe Butterfly (from Bugaboo Digital Stamps) to make a shape card. And I adorned it with Marcel Flower (available at Dies R Us).
I need a birthday card, so I replaced the sentiment by another. The snowglobe is coloured with Copics markers. I used Wing of Stella for subtle shimmer, then I used stickles on the butterflies and bubbles. The flower is die cut using some shimmery paper, and I slightly sponged on some colours.
At Die Cut Diva's, the challenge is to use glitter-yay! Our sponsors this month are the wonderful-
Here is my project-
I used Spellbinders Labels 16 for the image and mat, along with a border I made with my Cricut. The image is Hedgehog Flower (Bugaboo Stamps), colored with Copics. My background paper has glittery stripes, and I added Cocoa stickles to the flower to make it a glittery Black Eyed Susan!
Die Cut Divas' July glitter parade continues. What is more appropriate to celebrate the 4th of July than a nice cake delivered by a lass in red, white and blue? I had such fun coloring this. I always do with the Sun Bonnet lasses at Bugaboo stamps. I just can't resist them. I really can't.
I hope you like my sample of glitter for Die Cut Divas' challenge for July, Make it glitter. You can find me at A Bit of This and That.

July is already here. Can you believe it? Another challenge begins today. All you have to do is make it glitter in some way. If we can't tell it's glittering, you'll have to explain in your post how you made the card to make it glitter. It can glitter in the light (shine) or have glitter on it. Tell us how it glitters.

After embossing the flower up towards the top of my card. The bottom panel is a made using Geo Builders by Catherine Pooler for the StampNation SOA Collection. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set. Love the simplicity of this card.
