Valentines Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  Maybe you started hopping here at my blog – Esther Gather & Create or may have come from Create Joy Give Joy. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects and don’t miss a thing!


I used Heart Happiness stamp set from the new Spring/Summer catalogue for my Valentines project. The stripy folk heart has my heart! but there are many other cute designs included in the set.







The measurements you need to create this project are:

Smokey Slate card – half of A4 scored at 10.5cm

Real Red and Whisper White cut at 10 x 14.4cm (don’t get them mixed up like I did in the video!)

Whisper White cut at 13.9 x 9.5cm

Strip of whisper white approx 6mm wide

Scrap Whisper white

Sparkle & Glitter! GDP Theme challenge.

Hi Crafty friends

I escaped the very, very rainy day here in the UK and played along with this week’s Global Design Project Theme Challenge. Just to cheer myself up, I added glitter. Glitter can brighten any gloomy day! Right?

Global Design Project #GDP099



This design would work for a Wedding, Anniversary or Engagement, versatility is key!

The camera doesn’t translate the sparkly-ness (a word in my world) of the card but trust me, this card sparkles! The extra dots of sparkle were created with a fine tip glue pen and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The champagne flutes and sentiment were both heat embossed which always a great look for these kinds of celebration cards and adds a professional and classy touch.

You’ll find a link to the products used at the end of this post.

It can be tricky to adhere anything to glimmer paper or to cut it to size. Here are some tips to help you with that.

  1. Scrape a little of the glitter away where you want to glue your layer.
  2. Use a good amount of Multi Purpose Liquid glue and leave it to dry.
  3. Turn your glimmer paper over to cut on your trimmer.


Till next time!
