A friend of mine was asking about glitter. Well there are lots of ways to use the wonderful stuff.
On this first card I stamped the large rose onto watercolor paper with stazon ink. Then used the crayons and aqua painters to color it in. After I cut out the flower I stuck it onto sticky sheet and cut again. I peeled off the second layer of backing and added dazzling diamonds to it. Then I adhered it to the card. Looks pretty cool.
For this next card I punched out a piece of cardstock with the ornament punch and traced it onto the sticky sheet and cut out. I cut off the bottom of the ornament to turn it into a vase. I peeled off the top layer of backing and punched a little flower out of it, then stuck the flower backing onto the middle of the vase. Added brown glitter, tapped off extra. Peeled off the flower and added pink glitter. Then made my card. I thought it turned out pretty cool. I think for this one they call it burnished velvet.
*scrapbook day, looks like people are leaning towards the 13th of Feb. Any other comments on the date? Let me know.

If that's the Louis Riel Day weekend, count me out. We'll be out of town that weekend.
