Shopping Our Stash #138

Hello friends!  It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another fun challenge at Shopping our Stash.  This week we have a fun one!  Our theme is "Oh Shiny!"  To my daughter that says "glitter"!!!! lol So that's the way I went.
 I love DP from MME!  This sheet had the word LOVE all glittered and set off with the scroll work which is also glittered.  I added some tulle, pearls and one brown rose.  I added stitching to the background papers like I almost always do.
If you look at the portion of the scroll in the top right of the picture you'll see a little "blip" of red glitter.  This motif was actually near the edge of a 12x12 sheet and the right side of the scroll work was cut off.  After I fussy cut the whole thing I laid it on a scrap portion of the script paper and drew in the missing red glitter.  It's not perfect but until you really look you don't notice it :)  I never make my cards with elements extending beyond the edges but this one just had to be.  And I like it!

Now it's your turn.  Dig into your shiny stash and play along this week!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,



  1. very classy and stylish! Love it!

  2. Very nicely done, Michelle! I love bold design and this project has wonderful bold elements. Great sentiment and bold designer paper in the background!

  3. i love glitter, too, and MME use it as well as ANY paper co ever has, imo! LOVE that this "overhangs" the main card... one of my favorite tricks. this is a show-stopper, missus!!! <3

  4. Oh, you've gotta love paper that does the work for you! I completely forgot about all my glitter paper! HA! And yeah, this oen needs to hang over the edge. Love it!

  5. Wow, this is really a stunning card! Love how the glittered panel goes over the edge, and oooh tulle! So pretty!

  6. Glitter is my friend, amazing how easy it is to use as a "cover that mistake" . I wouldn't even have noticed until I scrutinized the card. Fabulous job.

  7. GLITTER! Love the fussy-cut motif - and if you'd never fessed, we'd never have noticed!

  8. Ohhhh Michelle, this is sooooo beautiful!! Love all the extra bling you added!

  9. Stunning card. I would never have thought to put these colours together, but they work so well
    and your red glitter is fabulous.
