Glitter Day 2

I have a couple more samples from my All That Glitters class for you.  I'm saving my favorite for tomorrow.  I know I said yesterday that it was my favorite, I can't decide between yesterday's card and tomorrow card which one is my favorite.  Good grief I'm not sure if any of that makes sense so lets just get to today's cards (which I also love!)  :)  The first one is so pretty in person.  The problem with photographing glitter is that you loose alot of the sparkle and shine.  You can see some of the sparkle in the picture but in real life the sparkle is just crazy and you just want to stare at the flower all day!  The flower is made with the Big Shot Adhesive Sheets, we stuck that on a piece of Pacific Point, punched it out and then used the Fine Supernova glitter on it.  So pretty!  Everyone was so creative with their flowers too.  I just randomly sprinkled the glitter on mine but others were very detailed and wanted specific colors in specific places.  They all turned out so beautiful :)  I love this card and I loved seeing every ones card at the class.  I wish I had my camera with me to show you.  They were all different and beautiful!!! 

The next card was fun, it's simple but striking!  After the flowers were stamped we covered the cardstock in Versamark and used Heat and Stick Powder with Dazzling Diamonds!  This card is just so pretty in person!  Almost all of my customers at the class had never used or heard of Heat and Stick powder.  It's an amazing product and probably one of my favorites for adhering glitter.  It's fast and easy!  Use the powder just as you would embossing powder.  For this card we covered the cardstock in versamark then poured the heat and stick over the wet versamark.  Heat the powder until it clear and glossy-don't overheat it!  Once it's clear it's tacky and your glitter will stick forever!  Sprinkle your glitter on top and reheat for just a few seconds-just to set the glitter.  You're done!!!!  If you've never used Heat and Stick powder I encourage you to give it a try and if you'd like me to show you and your friends more about it, I'd love to do a workshop with you! 

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!
