Add a little Sparkle!

The Art With Heart team are back with our last blog hop for 2019.
Getting into the spirit of Christmas and New Year celebrations, our theme tonight is 'Add a Little Sparkle'.
We have a huge range of sparkly projects to share with you, featuring products such as, Glimmer Paper, Rhinestones, Delicata Ink, Shimmery white cardstock and much more. All of these products are available from Stampin' Up!. If you have any questions about the products, just ask any of the lovely ladies in tonight's hop.

My project features the beautiful 6" x 6" Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Both sides of the paper are equally beautiful, but for my sparkly project I used the silver foil designs.

Silver and White together send out a lovely, bright and happy vibe I believe. The combination can be used for so many celebratory occasions - Engagements, Weddings, Christenings, Anniversaries, significant birthdays, and of course, Christmas.

I made these tree ornaments for each of the ladies that attended my last card class for 2019. Inside is a yummy peppermint Lindt chocolate ball.
It is an Origami fold, and I found this on the YouTube channel of Mixed Up Craft.

A hole, punched in the top of each folded triangle, allows you to thread the ribbon through and gently pull to draw it closed. (The red ribbon shown above is retired).
The hanging loops are made with a strand from the 5/8" Flax Ribbon.
For some extra sparkle, I punched out a 1 3/8" scalloped circle from Silver Glimmer paper. The Real Red sentiment comes from the #Elfie stamp set, this was backed with the smaller scallop punch in Real Red cardstock. A couple of red rhinestones finish off the embellishing.

It's time to thank the lovely Rachel Woollard for stepping in and hosting the remaining monthly Art With Heart team blog hops for 2019. And a thank you also, to our other team members who have hosted blog hops throughout the year. We have a wonderful and supportive team, ready to put up their hand when needed - thank you ladies.

The next demonstrator to share their sparkly project with us is, the delightful and talented Tina Gillespie.
