So Glossy!

Glossy gel mediums with a stencil, glossy accents, embossing powder, shiny card stock and embellishments - there are a ton of shiny mediums and accents to work with! So find your gloss power and come join us this week in our "So Glossy" challenge!

It's getting chilly around here, which has me thinking of the coming season of holidays and snow!

I had some lovely backgrounds I made a few months ago, and just love the turquoise blue. I used watercolor crystals to create the background. I am having fun with my new Simon wafer dies: Lined Trees and Happy Winter. I must say, these dies are turning me into a fan, I just love them!

I started out by using black die cuts on the blue, but then thought, hey it's winter, so let's try white, and it looks great. As you can see, I've been busy cutting. I'm using my paint trays to sort out the different parts.

I added Diamond Glaze to the tree sections to add my glossy for the challenge. Layer it all up on card stock into a card, and voila!

I know the season will be changing quickly into winter, but I do plan to enjoy the rest of fall and am hoping for some warm days. Hope you are enjoying your fall wherever you are!

I look forward to seeing how you use glossy in your creation and hope you will join us this week in our challenge! 

As always, one lucky crafter will win a generous $50 voucher from Simon Says Stamp - how cool is that!
