I Can't Stop!

Here are a few more cards I made today. I love seahorses so this stencil was great. I also love the sunflower because it is so versatile. I think with glitter you can mix and match any colors and it will still look great!

When Glitter Happens

I had a glitter accident! I put my glitter in a coffee filter and when I went to move it, well you can see what happened!

I LOVE Glitter

I use to think that glitter was pretty yet so messy. I love the way it looks on a card or a scrapbook page. What can I say, I just love bling! Hidee and I went to the Stampaway Convention last weekend and fell in love with the Powder Keg. Check out

They sell sticky paper that the glitter adheres to. On these cards I used a brass stencil with the sticky paper on the back side then just went crazy with my glitter! I used ultra fine glitter that I also bought at the PK booth. Since the glitter is so fine and the sticky paper is so strong, the glitter does not come off! On most of my cards the glitter will rub off when someone opens it or lays it down, but not these cards! It's great. When I adhere the sticky paper to the layer of my card, I use a brayer to roll over it and smooth it out. Check out the funky paper I used with the fish and my margarita glass!

Do you ever have creative block?

I think that is what I have right now. Of course I never have shopping block! Hidee and I went out on a shopping tour yesterday and had fun. I never run out of things to buy yet I run out of ideas to create. It is so aggravating. So I decided to just think simple. Nothing complicated. I love pink so I used SU! pretty in pink for the base. I used a mat from Mat Stacks with a flower pattern to layer on my base. Then I ran a piece of silver metalic paper (that I bought yesterday at Marco's..hehe) through my cuddlebug. I have had these brads from spare parts for a long time. I thought they were so cute yet I didn't know what to do with them. It just happened that the cuddlebug folder I used fit with my flower brads. So this is a very simple card that was quick to make and made my creative juices flow again! Mission accomplished! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
