This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Bring on the Bling...

Here is one of the blingy cards I had my Grace Stampers make last Monday. Our class was about having fun glitzing up your cards with glitter and embossing powder. Our first card uses Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The glitter is held on with clear packing tape applies behind the punched out shapes. Easy, fun and not so much mess! The whole card front is elevated with Dimensionals to give it some definition.



Supplies:
Stampin' Up! Heart to Heart punch, Real Red ink, Regal Rose card stock, Heard From The Heart stamp, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, White get pen, and strip of DSP- Raspberry Tart (retired).

Gorgeous! I haven't used this technique for quite a while! I love how you used it with the hearts punch! These colors are so pretty together along with the Raspberry Tart DP! I'm hoarding what I have left of mine!

Wow, I am glad I stopped by tonight. I have seen glitter done with tape, I have just never tried it, it looks amazing, and I bet it is easy! Great card.
