Did you sprinkle the glitter on top of wet glossy accents? How do you get it to not look like a big glob? I did this at a retreat this weekend and it looked like a gross blob of glittery bird poo! HELP! :)
My helpful tip: After you apply the glossy accents to your stamped image, don't dump on glitter and tap it off. There is where you get the *bird poo blobs*. Instead, take a tiny pinch of glitter from the jar and sprinkle it on. A tiny little bit...just a few little sprinklets...that's all ya need, Becky! Hope this helps!
Happy Ground Hog Day everyone!! I'm hoping for Spring weather soon!! Thank you to everyone for the wonderful comments yesterday. I hope you're THE lucky winner of the Papertrey Piece of Cake stamp set! I'll post the winner on my original prize drawing post when I know who it is. Be sure to visit Nichole's blog for another exciting announcement today....a new guest designer!
Today I have a simple and clean birthday card to show you. I used Karen Lockhart's new Violet Cupcake stamp (ha ha, I first typed Violent Cupcake...I've never met a mean cupcake....although I've probably said "That's one mean cupcake"...then devoured it!) along with some Basic Grey patterned paper. I colored my image using Copic Sketch markers, with a final addition of Ranger Glossy Accents and some pink glitter by Martha Stewart. I love circle accents so I cut and embossed the main image using Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle Die Templates. It's amazing how the embossing and scallops really create a great focal point, in addition to the stamped image.
For the base card, I kept it very simple. I used Papertrey Sweet Blush and Stamper's Select White Cardstock. I used a strip of the patterned paper under the circle accent and then made two embossed lines with my Scor-Pal....such a great look. For the main image, I used a Papertrey sentiment from Heartfelt Basics along with some hand stamped letters for the word *cupcakes*(letter stamps from my local scrapbook store in the $1 bin). This is a nifty little sentiment because you use whatever words you want for a totally personalized card.
Okay chickies, time for me to get to work. The weekend was filled with basketball games, grocery shopping, time in the kitchen and of course the Super Bowl (which I didn't watch much of). So today it's back to the stamp room, laundry(my DH threw an entire load of dry clothes out on the laundry room floor because he needed to dry a pair of jeans this morning....nice and wrinkled clothes, my favorite kind!), more Valentine party planning and orthodontist appointments this afternoon. I better scoot or the day will be gone before I know it. Have a great day everyone!
