I have just received my monthly demonstrator newsletter from Stampin' Up! (yes, another benefits of being a demonstrator - free ideas!!). Anyway, they had this great idea that I just had to try ...

This is a great technique that will really take your images up a notch. While this card looks okay in the photo, it's much more sparkly in real life, so give it a go!!

You can create your own glitter in any of the Stampin' Up! colours very easily. This is how it goes:

1. Put one drop of classic re-inker into the bottom of a empty container (I used an empty eyelet container).

2. Add in a couple of drops of water.

3. Add about half a teaspoon of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and mix. Continue adding more glitter until it has absorbed all the dye and has becoming "fluffy" in texture and is sparkly.

Stamps: Bodacious Bouquet, Stem Silhouettes, French Script (background)

Inks: Versamark, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla

Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Heat & Stick Powder (to stick glitter to image in Versamark), the FABULOUS new chocolate 5/8" grosgrain ribbon!, Stamp-a-ma-jig (for lining up text stamp which I stamped in 2 parts instead of one line)
