I also used Bronze Glitter Glitz to add some sparkle. I love how adding small touches like this can add so much to my stamped images. Here are a couple closeups:

Supplies used: Wooden letters purchased at Hobby Lobby, CTMH Sophia Paper Pack, CTMH Sophia My Stickease, CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, Mod Podge, CTMH Sparkles, CTMH Hollyhock & White Daisy cardstock, CTMH Stardust Glitter Glitz, CTMH Hollyhock Stitched Ribbon, and CTMH Sparkle Flourishes.
This month’s challenge at Scrap Our Stash is to LEAP and you can interpret that however you like. For me, I have so many projects that I want to do but never have the time. So I decided to just leap into one of these and get it done! I purchased these letters at least 2 years ago for my scrapbook room with good intentions and never did anything with them. I am very pleased with how they turned out and I’m excited to have new decor to add to my room. I covered the letters first with the Sophia papers using Mod Podge, then added the embellishments. All the diecuts are cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I added Glitter Glitz randomly to the flowers to give them a more real feel.
When I went to hang the letters, they didn’t fit exactly where I wanted them (centered over my dry erase board) so I did the same thing I think of when I’m doing a scrapbook page. I offset them instead of doing a straight line. I thought they fit that way but when I went to actually hang them, they didn’t. But they’re hung now and it’s done. I’m just going to try to not let it bother me that they are not centered.
The backs of the letters were flat and didn’t have anything to hang them. I used Command Picture Hanging Strips. They seem like they will hold now and the letters are not that heavy. I’ll update if they fall down.
Supplies used: SEI Glitzmas paper, CTMH cardstock, CTMH Playful Flourishes stamp set, Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge by CTMH, CTMH Black ink, KI Memories Flourish Borders, Kaiser Rhinestones, CTMH Color-Ready Hodge Podge Alphabet Stickers, Martha Stewart Carrara Marble Glitter, and Recollections Glitter Shapes.
These sparkly pictures needed a page with lots of sparkle. I think I added that. I ordered the SEI paper online and for some reason only got one sheet and when I went back they were sold out. It must have looked different on my computer screen because I love it in person and was wondering why I didn’t order 2 sheets. I stamped the Pacifica blue cardstock with stamps from Playful Flourishes (one of my all-time favorite sets). I used the new CTMH Ruler for lining up the rhinestones for an embellishment border. I pictured glittery white letters for my title and really thought I’d find some in my stash but no such luck. So I had to create my own. I used a Zig Glue Pen to apply adhesive to the alphabet stickers, then covered with glitter and let dry.
Supplies used: CTMH Topstitch Paper Packet, CTMH Topstitch My Stickease, CTMH Colonial White Mini-Medley, and Baby Blue and Cotton Candy Stickles.
This was an easy layout because I used the example on the back of the My Stickease. I added Stickles to the flowers on the B&T paper and to accent the My Stickease.
Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! This month there are 13 of us highlighting the Glitter Glitz Technique as shown on page 35 in the 2011 Autumn/Winter Idea Book! Glitter Glitz is such a great product with so many possibilities! This blog hop will be sure to jump start your thinking on the many different ways it can be used!
This blog hop is a circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. If you are coming from Tonya’s Blog, you are on the right track!
First I just have to say that Glitter Glitz is one of my favorite products. Close to My Heart currently has four different colors available – Stardust, Bronze, Silver, and Red. It is so versatile and can be used to sparkle-up anything including stamped images, ribbon, flowers, buttons, and more. You can also use it for doodling or accents.
Now to my layout…it is made from the Sophia Workshop on the Go Kit and I made it my own by adding some Stardust Glitter Glitz. I love the fine-tipped applicator! It makes it so easy to control for making thin or thick lines. I added glitter to my stamped images, to the pattern paper, and along my scalloped border. I also put some around the edges of my flower. The middle of my flower is a pear-colored button. I added the Glitter Glitz to the middle and around the edge. Once that dried, I poked a tulip-colored brad through the button holes for extra detail.
