Glorious Glitter

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today's challenge on SCS was to use specialty papers and so I dug into my hoarded stash and used some green embossed polka dot paper and a stripe with lots of glitter on it. Well, that just wasn't enough glitter, so I added a little more with my glue pen and dazzling diamonds. I wish I could capture that sparkle better in the picture, but . . . it just doesn't happen.

I stamped the cup and saucer (it's being released by Treehouse stamps tomorrow!!) with brown craft and clear embossed before cutting it out and popping it up with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped with versamark and clear embossed, then punched out. Of course I used my glue pen to add glitter around the edges of the oval as well as the scalloped square and those are popped up. One tip I really liked at convention was adding glitter to the edges of ribbon. I did that with my certainly celery ribbon, adding dazzling diamonds, once again.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
