Chilly and Freezy

Time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamp, this one is to add some sparkle!

I used the Simon and Tim Holtz collaboration dies "Chilly and Freezy"  available with a $25 or more purchase of Tim Holtz products. Love this pair of snowpeople! My sparkle comes from the white glitter card stock and tree die cut covered with Nuvo gilding flakes of gold, silver, and copper. The background was done with the shaving cream technique so the card smells nice too!

For the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of "Holiday Cheer"!
Frosted gingerbread cookies! I used Lawn Fawn unicorn glitter embossing powder on the Simon Says Stamp "Christmas Cookies" and the Sizzix Tim Holtz cutting dies that have the same name.

 I love this nutcracker die by Sizzix/Tim Holtz. Lots of little pieces but worth the trouble.

For my Fun With Foil card I used the Flourishing Bloom Plate wafer die with glimmer foil. I added the Beautiful sentiment die and the Layered Hummingbird die that was popped up on an action wobble. The gold matting and strip for the die cut are by Concord & 9th.
