ALL Cards Need Glitter.

It's just an unwritten rule. Except for the fact that I just wrote it, so now I guess it is just a rule. ;) I love adding glitter, bling, etc. to cards! Do you see the first card posted? Do you see what is in the background? GLITTER. What's on the candles? GLITTER. And look closely....what is that on the distressed edges? Could it be? Yep. GLITTER! I just love sparkles!

I was needing a few cards all at once for some girls in our church youth group. Two are similar in style, layout, everything except for the stamp used! The third card is for a girl who loves bugs! I thought Bugs and Kisses would be the perfect set to use for her! The final card is one I made for the Monday Mailer program I am doing. I used the faux stained-glass technique on that one. With the stained-glass, you stamp your image on vellum, color the other side (watercolor, whatever you want...) and layer it on top of a piece of white cardstock.

Stamps: Eat Cake. Paper: Whisper White. Ink: Pretty in Pink, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Barely Banana, VersaMark. Accessories: Yellow Stickles, Stardust Stickles, Iridescent Ice EP, Pink Ribbon from either American Crafts or May Arts- I can't remember, Pink Jewel from Heidi Swapp, Distresser.

Stamps: Eat Cake. Paper: Whisper White. Ink: Basic Black, Orchid Opulence, VersaMark. Accessories: Stardust Stickles, Iridescent Ice EP, Black Polka Dot Ribbon, Distresser.

Stamps: Bugs and Kisses. Paper: Certainly Celery, Whisper White. Ink: Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, Garden Green, Ballet Blue. Accessories: Lime Green, Xmas Red, and Waterfall Stickles, Sponge, Scallop Punch, Celery, Red, and French Blue Ribbons.

Stamps: Doodle This, Loads of Love Accessories. Paper: Certainly Chocolate Chip, Vellum, Whisper White, Apple Cider DP. Ink: StazOn Black, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Garden Green. Accessories: Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Antique Brass Brads.

This last picture was just something that made me laugh. I was doing the laundry and noticed that the label on one of my shirts is fading. I just bought this white t-shirt from Motherhood Maternity (I am pregnant, remember...) a couple of weeks ago, and it's one of those shirts where they print the label inside the shirt instead of on a tag. The name of the store USED to read "Motherhood". But after one wash, what does it say now??? Oh, yes.... "Otherhood". I guess I buy my clothes at the Other Hood now! Just made me laugh!
