Toonie Thursday Oct 7th at Scrapbooker's Paradise

Well I had hoped to have this posted prior to Toonie Thursday.....but it just didn't happen..........but I thought that I would post it, just so you can see what you all

I did a Christmas Glitter Card.........

I used Hero Arts Happy Holiday Trees Stamp Set and Glitter Rittz Warm Highlights for this card. Sorry everyone but the Glitter Ritz is only available in Scrapbooker's Paradise Stores.......but you could substitute any transparent micro fine glitter in it's place.

So here's a short tutorial on how I did the glitter:

First stamp your image onto cardstock of your choice, then over your image apply Sookwang/Score Tape, making sure you remove the brown paper backing and do not touch the tape as it will leave fingerprints. Then cut out using a Die of your choice, you will be able to see your image if you removed the brown backing. Then carefully without touching the adhesive, remove the top liner of the tape, it says Sookwang.

Now the fun part.....apply the micro fine transparent glitter all over the adhesive/image and rub/burnish it with your fingers. Tap off the excess and you have a glitterd image. The more you rub the glitter with your fingers the shinier it becomes, due to the oils in your fingers. Well that's it........pretty you can create awesome glittered cards!!!
