CTMH Sparkle N Shine Cards

Sparkle N Shine
Totally worth repeating, I LOVE our WASHI TAPE!!  The Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape adds so much to my projects and unlike many types of washi tape, the CTMH washi tape doesn't roll up, it sticks where it's placed and rocks any project!!!  
 The Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape includes 3 rolls of washi tape: 1" Juniper, 1/2" Ruby and 1/2" metallic Silver (each with 15 yards*) 
*note the Holidays from the Heart gift guide indicates 5 yards; however, each roll actually contains 15 yards of washi tape!!
The Ruby mini-medley assortment...I wasn't sure what I thought of those flowers...but it's the perfect addition to this card, along with the glitter buttons!  I put a little juniper reinker with water into one of our spray pens and "spritzed" the white card stock card base to keep it from being plain and a strip of washi tape on the inside of the card to dress it up!

Originally this 2nd card was a standard card, but then I fell in love with the "ticket" card I created, so I used a circle punch to clip the corners off this card to make it another ticket card!  Some silver shimmer trim and pearl opaques add a little extra zing!

Do you see the bling around my tree!  Hopefully you know that I wouldn't sit and individually place 25 bitty sparkles around a tree for 1 card!  Nope!!  CTMH has introduced 2 Sparkle Shape assortments that MATCH 2 of our stamp sets!!  The tree is from our Sparkle Holiday Shapes, which includes 18 adhesive-backed rhinestone shapes that coordinate with our Trim the Tree stamp set AND our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge!  Which means you can cut the image from the cricut, stamp and bling!  Or cut the image in patterned paper and bling!  Super quick, easy and so adorable!!
Don't forget, when you order $100 in products from the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book or Holiday Gift Guide, you can choose one "star" product FREE (shown below)!!
