Let It Shine!

Metallic accents add so much class and bling to any project – I say “Let it Shine!” One of favorites from the new 2019 Stampin’ UP! catalog is the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper. What makes it special is the gold foil accents in the paper. And nothing says Christmas to me like plaid – win/win! Let’s take a look”

Between the plaid paper and the plaid Christmas Tree stamp from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, I’m in Christmas plaid Heaven! And the metallic gold foil accents of the DSP repeat the gold in the Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon. The main focal point is a Christmas tree cropped from a sheet of gold foil and the sentiment is embossed with Gold Embossing powder.

The Paper Players Challenge

I’m not the only one who is liking all these metallic accents – the Paper Players like them too as is evident by this weeks challenge which is all about Marvelous Metallics.

You call see all the submissions for the Paper Players Challenge here.

I love that I could use 3 different metallics (Gold Foil, gold foil accents in the DSP and gold embossing powder) on 1 project and have perfect coordination! The product coordination is what hooked me on Stampin’ Up! many years ago and I’m still hooked! The stamps and punches are perfectly coordinated to crop out those trees. The plaids coordinate and so do the colors.

My trusty paper snips made easy work of cropping out Christmas Cheer from the sentiment after heat embossing it with gold embossing powder.
