Sparkle & Shine...oh la, la! 
I adore Sparkle & Shine & love to incorporate it into whatever project I'm working on.

Today, my "sparkly" card, comes from our Cedar & Pine Cardmaking Kit stamp set. 

This EXCLUSIVE stamp set, can only be purchased as part of this Cardmaking Kit.  

Here's a look at this stamp

To add some extra Sparkle, I pulled out our NEW Embossing Pens & our Gold Tinsel Embossing powder. If you look at the stamp set above, you'll notice I added some extra lines to the star design. 

I'm excited to think of the many ways to use these FABULOUS embossing pens!!!

To color in the stable & manger, I used our Tri-Blend alcohol markers. The picture doesn't show it well, but I also used the Gold Shimmer Brush on top of the "hay".  Love that gold shimmer in person!! 

Here's a look at the supplies I used to create this simple card. 
G1192 Cedar & Pine Cardmaking Kit
Z1985 Gold Shimmer Trim
z4194  White & Gold Skinny ribbon
Z3316 Gold Shimmer Brush
Z4249 Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder
Z3548 Embossing Pens
Tri-Blend Markers (Gold Brown, Earth Brown, Grey Brown & Ice Blue)
