I've been meaning to post for a few days now but classes and nice weather got in the way!
I was going to wait until after my June Technique Classes to post these two projects but I just couldn't wait to!
I was trolling through Pinterest the other day and I stumbled across a technique that I have never seen (how can that BE?? I've been doing this for over 11 years and never seen this??? Sheesh!)
It was a technique done by fellow demo Connie Stewart over at simplysimplestamping.com
Connie called it the Packing Tape Glitter Technique ... makes sense ... since you use packing tape and glitter!
Check out my cards!
I love them BOTH! I'm not sure which one I like better! I love the clean, fresh Fresh Fig-ness of the silver glitter card ... but I'm drawn to the soothing Just Breathe card. It's says "zen" to me ... love it!
Same technique, different thinlits, paper and glitter.
Start with a card layer (I used 4 3/4 x 3 1/2") and cut an image out using whatever thinlits you fancy (I used the Eastern Palace thinlits)
Oops - picture is sideways. Sorry; Turn your head *lol*
I used a Fresh Fig layer of 5" x 3 3/4" and some Fresh Fig ribbon ... and sentiment from Eastern Palace
I embossed the sentiment in gold and added a few gold sequins. Done!
There are SO many things you can do with this technique! Us the butterflies, the dragonflies, and of the shapes .. any glitter! Who doesn't have a stash of EVERY color SU sold in the past ... and maybe a few sleeves of "other" brand glitters??? I have to admit I have LOADS of glitter from my Christmas Glitter Ball Ornament days many years ago. Can't WAIT to use some of them on the dragonfly thinlits!!!
That's it for today - I should go wrap up my email about my Ribbon Share. I spend a few hours this afternoon crunching the numbers but it's not going to do anyone any good if I don't send the darned email OUT!
Hope you have a stampy night!
