Introducing Sparkle & Shine, NEW! Shaker Shapes dies...

Welcome back to another day of the Papertrey Ink countdown for September! Today we have a preview of the new Sparkle & Shine dies and stamp sets! They will all be available on the 15th of this month at 10pm EST. On the first card, I used the ornament shaped dies and created a shaker card for the holidays. 


Sequins were added into the shaker card for some "shine". In the background, on the Aqua Mist cardstock, I stamped some "rays" with Hello Sunshine and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.



The gold paper on the word "shine" was from the Luxe Letterpress kit. It has a sticky back on it, so it was easy to just peel and stick the word onto the clear cardstock! I thought the gold and aqua were perfect colors to go with the "vintage" feel that the shape of the ornament has.



Let The Light of the Season Shine card:
STAMPS: Sparkle & Shine Holiday Addditions, Hello Sunshine
INK: True Black, Fresh Snow
PAPER: Aqua Mist, White, Clear Cardstock
DIES: Sparkle & Shine: Words, Sparkle & Shine: Ornament, Sparkle & Shine: Circle (stars)
OTHER: sequins by Pretty Pink Posh, white embossing powder.

The second card uses the circle dies. But this time, I didn't make a shaker card with them (although you can!). I simply cut several circles and used them as the focal point on my card. Love how it turned out! This one just makes me happy.

The gold dotty paper in the center is from Heidi Swapp's project life kit that I picked up at Michaels one day. All of the other papers are from Papertrey Ink. The little stars and sequins were cut out using the dies also, along with the circle and the "sparkle".

This one would work great for a birthday card. My daughters get invited to so many parties, that it's nice to have cards on hand just for such occasions!

STAMPS: Sparkle & Shine
INK: True Black
PAPER: White, Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz, Aqua Mist cardstock
Gold paper from Luxe Letterpress kit
