Get Your Glitz On Challenge 1

Happy Friday dear friends!! I am so happy it is finally the weekend! Today was a crazy day. The roads were icy on the way to work and it snowed the entire day. Thank goodness it really is Spring and the snow doesn't stay around very long. I have heard that tomorrow it is supposed to be in the 50's which will be like a heatwave and I will be very thankful. Thank goodness that winter isn't year 'round...it just feels like it here in Montana!! Since it is so sloppy outside, this evening is a perfect time to play in my scraproom!! If you are needing a project to work on, I have just the challenge for you!!! The Get Your Glitz On Challenge #1!!!
For my first project, I used my new favorite Glitz Design Collection, Afternoon Muse!!! Check out the colors and patterns in this collection!!! Absolutely beautiful!!I also used the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week which looks like this:
and here's my take on these challenges:
Aren't the little girls as sweet as can be???? I just love it! I added some vintage music banners, a crinkly bow, pearls, button and a rose. This card is one of my favorites to date!!
I cut out the banner out of Papertrey Ink coaster board using the Papertrey Ink Double Ended Banners. I glued the vintage music paper on top of the coaster board for dimension.I used the PTI Banner Builder Collection to trim the vintage music banners and added a pearl to each one.

Supplies used:
Glitz Design Afternoon Muse Collection Paper Layers
Glitz Design Afternoon Muse Collection Paper: Banner
Papertrey Ink Cardstock: Kraft and Rustic Cream
Vintage Hymnal Music
PTI Button Twine and Button
Stamp: PTI Embellisments
Ribbon: MemrieMare
Floral: Recollections

Card #2 is a little different, but fun just the same. My favorite collection from last summer's release is Love Nest by Glitz Design!! So many pretty colors and papers!!! Way fun to work with for sure!! One of my favorite techniques is to stamp on patterned paper to enhance the stamped image and fussy cut. The balloons are from Stampin Up several years ago and the cake is from Glitz Design.I layered the fussy cut images onto patterned paper that was layered onto Lemon Tart cardstock and Embossed with Stampin Up's Square Lattice embossing folder.
So many fun colors in the Love Nest Collection!
I popped up the balloons and added some twine for effect and also some pearls to the cake!! So much fun!! I also had to finish the inside of this card too!
Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Love Nest Collection: Strip and Floral
PTI Cardstock: Kraft, Lemon Tart, Rustic Cream
Stamps: Glitz Design Cake, Stampin Up Happy Birthday, and PTI Make a Wish
PTI button twine
Kaiser Craft Pearls
Embossing Folder and Scallop Punch: Stampin Up

Thank for stopping by!!!
I hope you get a chance to join in the fun and get your Glitz On!!!!
