Everyone needs a bit of sparkle!

Well my stamping today didn’t go all that successfully.  I didn’t end up using the colour combo I intented to, and after making one card I can’t show you as it’s off to a friend who I was told today reads my blog DAILY (do you think she realises I update my blog about once a month? LOL), I decided it was about time I used some of the Sticky Cuts I have.  Actually I have both packs and have used none, other than for demoing!!!  So with the child free hours disappearing, I made a quick card, full of SPARKLE!… I’m rather partial to a bit of bling! 🙂  Both the white rub on greeting (yes I know it’s a little crooked LOL)  and the white jumbo grommet are in our current Summer Mini…

Glitter doesn’t show up all that well in pics, so here’s another look…

This card is off to one of our team members.  Now I have a bit of a tip when using the rub ons…  I couldn’t work out why I just couldn’t get them to stick very well and would press so hard I’d leave an indent in the cardstock….Well I think I’ve worked it out!  I usually stamp on a pad of Stampin’ Up! grid paper…  this is never an issue, but today I realised that it you use your rub ons, with your cardstock directly onto a table top (so there’s no spongyness), there’s hardly any pressure needed and the rub ons adhere EASILY!!  Well derrr I hear you say!  🙂   Hey, I love having a moment of discovery!

 

Well that ends my third post in three days!  I won’t be in tomorrow as I’m off for lunch with my good friend, but let’s hope I’m back early next week!!

    Hi again Kim. I’m sure these pictures don’t do this card any justice. Just love it. KarenC
