All That Glitters Is Gold...or Silver or Orange or Black!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today it's all about the GLITTER! All of my projects today include glitter. I'm showcasing several different levels of glitter coverage from subtle to in your face everyplace ;) I Hope you enjoy the projects and are inspired to use some of these ideas to bling up your own cards.

On the first card I wanted show how subtle sparkle and shimmer could be. This monochromatic card is jazzed up just a bit by using Iridescent Ice embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I added just a bit more bling with the basic rhinestones and 1/8" silver ribbon.

Supplies: Soft Sky CS, Festive Flurry & Joyful Christmas Stamp sets, Iridescent Ice EP, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Versamark Ink, Basic Rhinestones

On this card I wanted to show how well our gold and silver glitter works with line images. I just stamped onto DSP with versamark and applied heat n stick powder and gold glitter. I stamped twice and popped up the smaller petals to give the poinsettia dimension.

Supplies: Gumball Green, Old Olive CS, Season of Style DSP, Christmas Joy stamp set, Season Of Style Washi tape, Gold Glitter, Versamark Ink, Square lattice EF, Heat & Stick powder
This is one of the best ways to glitterize something. Non-messy Glimmer Paper. Just cut and adhere to surface. This card made maximum use of both the main lattice bit and the tiny extra bits leftover. This ha amazing sparkle in real life.

Supplies: Chocolate chip, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry CS, Champagne Glimmer Paper, Tags 4 You, Autumn Accents Bigz Die, candy dots, lattice die, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Sweater Weather DSP, Early Espresso Ink
This one here though is my favorite because I LOVE GLiTTER! I used sticky strip to glitterize the whole entire car front. It takes time but isn't it fabulous :) All this card needed was a simple stamped image and a bit of ribbon

Supplies: Orange and Black Glitter, Tags 4 You stamp set, White taffeta ribbon, basic black re-inker, sticky strip, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie CS & markers, Adorning Accents Edgelits

Happy Stamping!
