I received several prank calls yesterday. The only response to my always-cheerful greeting was heavy breathing. Who would do that to me? Well, the answer wasn’t too far away. It was glitter. Glitter subscribes to my blog and was not too happy with yesterday’s post. She was ticked. To make it up to her, I’m using glitter again today. BUT this time, I am using Dazzling Details to create an easy, mess-less detail on my 3″ x 3″ card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders:
- All that glitters. I used two lustrous products above that add shimmer without the mess. The first is brushed silver card stock. The second is Dazzling Details, which is essentially glitter glue. It comes in a tiny bottle with a long, pointed tip. You just squeeze out the glue and let the gloop (that’s the official word for glittery glue) dry. No dusty residue floating around your craft room.
- Study your stamp sets. Do you recognize the stamp that plays the lead role in this card? I didn’t think so. Just the other day I admitted to purchasing Everything Eleanor just for the cool shape of the largest stamp. Nothing else really appealed to me at all. I went back and studied that set to see if there was something else I could use. Well, here’s another stamp from this set. I can honestly say I’d never paid attention to this one – even though I mounted the stamp when I got it. The circle punch added to the center of the medallion changes the shape entirely. I needed a little definition around the outsides of the white card stock, so I sponged a little Basic Gray around the edges.
