Make It Glitter!

That's right!  MAKE IT GLITTER!

This month's challenge at Die Cut Divas is to make it glitter.  Interpret this as you will, just make it glitter or shine, glitter paper, glitter dust, glitter with Perfect Pearls, glimmer sprays, Stickles, Glossy Accents. Surprise me!

And who better to start the year off than one of the top stamp companies in the world. 


I fell in love with Jennifer McGuire's technique of double and triple stamping of the same background stamp on November 17, 2013. Sometimes a design is just perfect and it was!  I used a different background and loving how it turned out.  The Hero Arts Zig Zag (CG422) creates a great pattern stamped in triplicate in 3 distress ink colors, Broken China, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire.  I wish you could see the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls spray mixture on the entire card.

 Close-up of the butterfly.  As you can see, my stamping wasn't perfect, but this design is very forgiving.  You can see a little of the sparkle on the body of the butterfly.  To see the video of how this design was created, visit Jennifer McGuire's November post here.  Also, it would be best to attached the solid color strip to your panel prior to running your zig-zag panel through your machine.

So hard to capture glitter or shininess sometimes.  I love this card design.  I'm sure many of you have already cased Jennifer's card.   Here's the leftover of the triple stamped zig-zag background.

I hope you can see some glittery Stickles on the edges of those stars and the edging on the panel.

Be sure to enter the Die Cut Divas' challenge this month.  Enjoy the new year!
