Blogtoberfest--Fun with Glitter!

I recently bought a package of glitter made by a la Mode and it's beautiful just in the package! 18 gorgeous colors and they are a great match to our CTMH colors...especially our 8 NEW colors! What a find!  Of course the photos don't to the glitter justice but I think you'll get the idea! Using a glue pad I stamped the images then sprinkled on the glitter. A key part to glitter stamping is to "push" the glitter into the glue so put a piece of scrap paper on top of the glitter, roll a brayer over it a couple times or rub with your fingers, then lift the scrap paper. Now you can tap off the excess glitter. In the top card I actually used two colors of glitter on the flower. It's hard to see but looks very nice in real life. Both cards feature paper from the Olivia paper kit. CS and ink colors are Pear, Smoothie and Sunset.

Happy Glittering!

  1. Great cards! Especially like the 'softness' of the first card. Still surprised at how well the glue pad holds the glitter on.
