Hi there,

Today I want to share a couple of new products over in the Sparkle N Sprinkle shop: Gilding Flakes and Glimmer Pastes along with one of the new Reveal Sets: Christmas Tags 805.

I took a Super Adhesive Sheet and trimmed off a little on the length and stuck it down on to a half sheet of white cardstock. I ran it through my machine with the Sizzix 657586: Card, Circle Flip-its Die.

I took the backing off the left front and the back front. I placed the backing from the left to the right edge of the back front, before applying the Silver Bullion Gilding Flakes to the sticky surfaces.

So then the two remaining background taken off and the Radiant Gold Flakes were applied to the stick surfaces. 

End result:

I cut the circle piece out of a Super Adhesive Sheet from the Circle Flip-Its die and applied it to the back of the circle. I pulled back the backing before applying the Silver Bullion to the right side

... and then peeled off the remaining backing and applied the Radiant Gold to the left.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Gold Detail and Silver Detail. It was cut out with Spellbinders Standard Circle die. Then I rubbed a little Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse around the edge of the circle.

I applied Moonstone Glimmer Paste to the entire piece and set it aside to dry, while I did the "to and from" tag for the back of the flip in Silver Detail embossing powder.

Nuvo Silver Lining Crystal and Silver Moondust Glitter drops were applied to the gold corners. Honey Gold Glitter and Bright Gold Crystal drops were applied to the silver corners. Once the Glimmer paste was dry the image was attached to the front panel with Foam Squares to finish off my project.

Hope you've enjoyed my share today.
