Sparkly Fun Friday -- Newsprint & Bling

Sparkly Fun Fridays features a sparkly or glittery project using shimmer paints, embossing powders, glitters, rhinestones... anything shiny to welcome the weekend in a fun way!!!

Hi everyone,

Ever since I got Stampin' Up!'s Newsprint DSP pack my hands were itchy to make something with it. Today was THE day.

I really like the geometric patterns that the big bold letters of the background piece make.

I had a bit of a hard time photographing the Cherry Cobbler piece of scalloped cardstock above. The true color is quite stunning!

For the bling accent I used a big Very Vanilla Jumbo Brad, added a glue dot and some Red Chunky Essentials Stampin' Glitter. The flower is punched out of the same Newsprint DS with a Scallop Circle Punch, the each petal is cut with scissors. I also inked all the edges of the flower. I really like how the two different sizes of fonts look together.

Inside, another piece of DSP where I've stamped a sentiment from On Your Birthday Stamp Set with Basic Black Classic Ink.

Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee
