Post#139 Happy New Year 2016

2015 seemed to have flown by….and a brand new year has begun….Happy New Year to you and yours and wishing you the very best in 2016….
My new year card has a gold cardstock base…and the top layer is in aqua green cardstock on which I stamped various size circle stamps with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder…I then cut a 2″ strip of vellum paper and used a border punch on both sides before attaching it to the top layer…
On one side of the top layer I attached one strip of gold glitter adhesive tape and another in purple…next to it I threaded a few sequins on a gold string and wrapped it around the top layer a few times….
For the sentiment I die cut the Happy New Year word twice from purple card stock and once from gold foil paper and glued them together before attaching to the card…
Hope you liked this card…Have a great 2016….

Post#97 – Flower And Glitter Card

I haven’t had much luck with any of the techniques for using a bit of glitter in projects….the glitter usually shakes off…..or it only partially sticks….So after trying out lots of different ways to make glitter stick and not shake off the card..I have finally came up with one technique that works to create this splatter background…
I just mixed a tiny bit of Tombow multi liquid glue with a few drops of water and a bit of glitter…mixed it well with a brush and splattered it on the front of the card…

Once the gold glitter splatter on the white card dried up,I cut out a stamped image of a flower and stem from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamp set and stuck it to the card….Finally I added a gold foil paper banner with a sentiment stamp on it…
The glitter splatter looks great doesn’t it??And it doesn’t come off…yay….
Hope you liked it…
