Creation Station Blog Hop - Our Bloomin' Love of Glimmer Paper



I feel honoured to have been invited by an awesome group of International Demonstrators, to be a part of their design team. If you've just hopped over from the talented Holly, then you'll have already seen some amazing creations. With this being my first time hopping with this team, I hope to add to your enjoyment with the creations that I share with you today.

Being February, we can't escape the love that's Bloomin' with Valentines being just a week away … So this month it's all about our Bloomin' Love for Glimmer Paper. 

This Heart shaped Die is quite literally to die for. It's so beautiful with almost the appearance of delicate lace. Thinking shabby chic, I wanted to tone down the glitz of the gorgeous glimmer paper, by teaming it up with Kraft Cardstock and Corrugated cardstock and am really pleased with the outcome.


I've used both Dazzling Diamonds and Blushing Bride Glimmer paper, as I love both of these colours. It's difficult to tell from the first photo that you can actually see through the heart, but hopefully you can see from this photo, that I've omitted any backing and replaced it with Window sheet for protection.


This corrugated envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board and embellished with a die cut heart from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit pack. I've made it so that the opening flap simply tucks behind the Glimmer Heart for ease of securing … a very simple and effect closure. 





I felt that the inside needed a beautiful liner, which I created using Very Vanilla Cardstock, some Marvellous Markers and the Bloomin' Love Stamp Set. 




Valentine's Day often brings gifts of sweet treats, so this gift bag made from the Mini Treat Bag Framelits, is the perfect size. I decided to use the Heart Thinlit as a splash of lace detailing behind the sentiment to help pull the set together.

The Stamp Set and Thinlits can be purchased with a Bundle saving, which is well worth checking out.


I hope you've enjoyed the creations that I've shared with you today and I hope you'll continue the hop to see more inspirational creations using these products.  


Hop on over to the lovely Sara to see what wonderful creations she has in store for you.

       



Happy Hopping
