|Spellbinders and Glitter On Parade!|
For those who know me, I don't do GLITTER (I'm a Stickle Person)...I WAS a glitter virgin! LOL!! After I played with American Crafts Glitter Collection (they have many kinds of texture: micro beads, ultra fine and chunky glitter, tinsel, etc.), there was no turning back. ScrapMart folks (love them!!) taught me a cool technique that I'd like to share with you.
|Round About card by Margie Higuchi|
Supplies - Stamp: JustRite Papercraft (Lattice Background stamp); Ink: TSUKINEKO (Black VersaInk); Glitter: American Crafts (Black Pop! Micro Beads, White WOW!); Die: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-115 Round About); Adhesive: American Crafts (Red Line Tape); Other: White Shimmer Cardstock, Black Shiny Cardstock
Then I STAMPED ON TOP OF THE GLITTER! Love it!! I did the same with the navy card (first picture, next to the Round About card on the left) as a border and then COLORED WITH COPIC MARKER!! How COOL is that?!
I was only going to show a couple of steps. BUT since I'm going through all this, I made another card. A slightly different version. To finish the edges, I covered the edges with narrow red line tape and covered with black micro beads.
Are you familar with Spellbinders Cut·Fold·Tuck dies? If not, watch CutFoldTuck video below...
I used S5-115 Round About set for this card. Since I didn't have shiny two sided black and white paper, I stacked white and black paper together to create a similar look.
Then added Want2Scrap's newest color in their pearl collection - Gun Metal! LOVE!!! This is what I created Round About Two card :0)
