SCS536 - It's Sketch Time

Hey peeps.  I'm back with a quick card.  Not feeling my best today but I wanted to make sure you didn't miss out on the new sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  I attempted to make a tutorial for this card but my migraine got the best of me.

I used the Thinking of You stamp set from Simon Says Stamp along with some of their inks.  The paper is an older SEI pack that I have had forever now.  It's one I love going back to.  Don't know what I'm going to do when I run out. 

Thanks for swinging by today.  I hope you have a fantastic hump day!

Making Glitter Paper

Hey peeps.  I love browsing YouTube and Pinterest.  There is so much inspiration and beauty to be seen.  It still amazes me all the creativity we have in this world.  I ran across a video by Kristina Warner (she's awesome) that inspired me to get in my stamp room and create.  So I have a card to share with you today and a quick tutorial.

I know you're saying "well there's nothing special about this card".  And you are right but see that pretty flower with all it's sparkle?  Well I made that with my own glitter paper.  Let's take a look at my tutorial.

So did you like my little tutorial?  I hope you'll give it a try yourself.  I'm heading on line to purchase me more glitter.  I love this technique.

Go forth and be crafty~
