Challenge #208 - Sequins or Glitter ♥

Hello everyone!  Renee here with the new challenge for this week.  I'm not sure about you, but I fell in face first to the sequin/glitter craze.  Consequently, I have a ton of it in my craftroom.  Lately, I have been looking for a way to use lots of it up at a time.  So, the challenge for this week is to pull out some of your sequins or glitter and use it on a project.

For my take on this challenge, I used my Fuse tool, another of my supplies that often sits unused, and made a bookmark for my planner for the month of January.  Because I was custom fusing the bookmark, I was able to put in a ton of sequins to add sparkle to the bookmark.  

Okay, your turn.  Lets see what you can come up with using sequins or glitter.

I used some old book pages for the background. I stamped my image and placed it behind a "frame", actually a leftover from a Lace-Up Picture Frame, which I colored with gold, brown and a tad of green acrylic paint. 

Since I didn't have any sequins I added distress glitter to a heart.

To create my card, I used a Fancy Heart die cut from DieNamites as focal point and a stamped background in the same tone on my card base. Also I added three different colors of sequins gold rose, antique rose and white and a little touch of glitter represented on the bottom border.


I used one sequin embellishment on this layout, it's the yellow bow on the bottom left of the layout.

I've had this big stack of glitter paper for awhile and so I've been trying to use it on a variety of projects.  It worked just great for this Valentine's Day card I CASE'd off of Pinterest
