Hi there dear friends!! I am so very excited to share some more Glitzy goodness with you today!!! This time of year, as we draw close to Valentine's day, I tend to feel a little romantic and I pull out my lace, ribbon, buttons and vintage images and put a little shabby chic into my creations! I guess you could say I've got that "Loving Feeling"!!
For my first card, I combined the Hoopla Collection and the pretty pink in the Love Nest Collection and I just love the results!!! This card totally fits my shabby chic mood!
Glitz Design "Hoopla" Paper: Polka and Frames
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Paper: Damask
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Cardstock Stickers: Journaling
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Rub Ons
PTI Cardstock: Rustic White; PTI dies: Victorian Lace Border; PTI Stamps: Love Birds; PTI Felt; Button, Seam Binding and Lace from my stash; Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger: Brushed Corduroy; Copic Marker: E 50 Egg Shell; Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
I colored the white seam binding with a Copic Marker and tied a double bow. I inked the first word in the sentiment and stamped it at the top of the tag. I inked the rest of the stamp and I applied it to the bottom of the tag and then I adhered the birdie rub ons in the middle of the tag. Then, I added a decorative border cut from patterned paper and a pretty button to finish off the bow.
For my second project, I designed a little card for my sweet daughter's birthday. I used the beautiful Love Nest line, a little glitter and added a hand cut banner.

PTI cardstock: Rustic White; PTI dies: Border Builder Collection; PTI Stamps: Make a Wish and Baby Button Bits; PTI Buttons and Button Twine; Glitter Martha Stewart; Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger: Brushed Corduroy and Crushed Olive.
I stamped the cupcake onto two different types of paper and pieced them together. Then I added glitter to make the frosting shine. I colored the cupcake wrapper with Crushed Olive and Brushed Corduroy ink. The banner is hand-cut and I added Glitz Alphas for the happy sentiment. I hung the banner on button twine and added buttons then I stamped the birthday sentiment and I hand-cut it out as well. For the final touch I layered the cupcake onto a Glitz Design Glitzer to add interest.
Wishing you an absolutely fantabulous day!!!
