Glittery Happy Birthday

September 15, 2008

Here is a card made for the Try a New Technique challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. Today's technique to try out is to use glitter with your background stamp.

For the background of this card I used a stamp from All Night Media - The Netherlands by Anaa Griffin. Used Palette Stamp and Stick Gluepad on the background stamp and stamped on a Rose colored cs. Heated the image with a Heat It Craft Tool until it got sticky and the poured Rose Copper Glitter Ritz. Tapped out the excess glitter and set it aside for a little bit. Stamped the Azalea on white cs with Jet Black Impress Ink and then colored the flower with Copic markers. Cut it to an oval shape with an oval Coluzzle and then matted it on to a light green Bazzil cs that was cut with an Oval Scallop Nestabilities. Heavily sponged around the scalloped area with Certainly Celery. Then made a glitter panel by using double sided tape and more Rose Copper Glitter Ritz. Burnished the glitter to let the shine come out. Adhered the glittered pieces to a light green Bazzil cs that was sponged with Certainly Celery. Then used double-sided foam tape to add dimension to the Azalea image. Stamped Happy Birthday on another piece of light green Bazzil cs and mounted the whole piece to the Rose based card. For the finishing touch added ribbon between the glittered pieces.

Stamps: Azalea and The Netherlands
Ink: Jet Black Impress, Certainly Celery and various Copic markers
Paper: Rose cs, Rose and Light Green Bazzil cs and white cs
Accessories: Palette Glue pad, Rose Copper Glitter Ritz and ribbon
