House of Cards



Let’s start 2015 off with a big bright bang and some exciting news! I have been asked to join the House of Cards Design team and today is my very first Inspiration Challenge. On the first of the month, House of Cards will provide an inspirational photo and challenge and you will have the entire month to play along and link your inspired creation. This month the theme is GLITTER! What could be more exciting!? Are you ready for my big, bright card? Here it is!

I was inspired by the glittery ornaments in the bowl pointing up towards the stars. I wanted to capture the very first moment of 2015, when everyone in the room counts down from 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 . . . Happy New Year! At that moment, it’s nothing but a bright blur of color, cheers, hugs & kisses, and confetti! It might be a little messy, but it’s a glittery creation of fun!

I used some of my favorite die cuts to create an eye-popping glitter explosion against a clean white background. The Loopy Rings, Vintage Bottles, Celestial Bodies, Curled Ribbons, and Typewriter Lower Alphabet Set, are all from Memory Box. The glittery Cheers! tag was created with Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags. The tiny circle confetti and little music notes were made with a small hand-held hole punch. I used foam pop dots to give the bottles and the Cheers tag a little New Year’s pop! Usher in the New year all month long!

You can find a shiny boatload of inspiration along with all the details of how to link your creation over at the House of Cards blog here!

May your 2015 be filled with lots of love and glitter!

Live your life in color!
