“G” is for…

Glue & Glitter!

Of course, you can’t have glitter without some kind of glue!




This first card features the cute-as-can-be penguin from the Punch Pals set.  I simply colored him in using Basic Black, Only Orange and GdPretty In Pink markers, punched him with the 1-3/8” circle punch and mounted him on a Scallop Circle punch in Pretty In Pink.  The sentiment is from the new Whimsical Words found in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  You can get this set for FREE with a $50 purchase of Stampin’ Up!® products.  See my website here for more information.  The large snowflake was cut using my Big Shot and the Snowflake #2 die (I love this snowflake)!  I then covered the flake with Tombow Multi-purpose glue and topped it with Crystal Iris Chunky Sprinkles.  I have found that the Tombow glue works best with the chunkier glitters.  The card base is Whisper White with a layer of Pretty In Pink and topped off with a Shimmery White layer that I ran through the Big Shot using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.



This next card has been simplified even more…kind of.  It’s a Naturals White card base.  I ran a piece of Bella Blue Designer Series paper through the BS with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.  I then used my sanding block to lightly sand the raised texture on the DSP.  This just brings the detail out on the designer paper a little bit more.  I really like the look…I’m sure you’ll see me use it often.  This time, I covered the Snowflake #2 using a 2-way glue pen and the very fine Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I, also, followed a bit of the detail in the designer paper and added some glitter to it.  The entire card sparkles!  A light blue Rhinestone brad was placed in the snowflake center.  The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black on Naturals White and punched using the Wide Oval punch.  For the scallop oval in Not Quite Navy, I used an old technique of using the Scallop Circle punch to create the scallop to go around the oval.  As I look back through my posts, I haven’t showed this technique.  Be looking for it in the near future, as I’m unprepared to show it here.  Perhaps that would be a good ‘S’ project??? hmm…=)


Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to break out the glue and glitter!  Both of these cards were inspired by the beautiful snowfalls we have experienced here in VA as of late!  I love to see it snow!  So here’s to the glistening snow!!
