Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Glitter ATC Swap

  The theme of this ATC swap was glitter. I was so confident joining this swap because so many of the cards and scrapbook pages that I make have glitter on them. So much that I was given the title "The Glitter Queen". I was sure that these would be quick and easy for me. Was I ever wrong. I got a mind block. Me of all people not knowing what to do with glitter!

   For this card I started with a sheet of scrapbook paper. I scanned it and re-sized it so that I could use the little fairy. I then used colored glitter in the same colors that she was colored. I made a small tag writing the word "Bloom" with a gel pen. I then edged the card and tag with silver ink.

   This card started with black card stock. I applied two heavy coats of glitter paint and let them dry. Using a paper punch I punched the swirls and stars out of glitter paper gift bags and glued them in place. I then mounted it on black cards stock. In some sewing scraps I found a black fabric swirl that I glued in place. I thought that it was the perfect finishing touch.

   This card was made from a scrap of scrapbook paper. I applied glue to a rubber stamp and stamped it on the paper. Then I sprinkled black glitter over it. I then ran a line of glitter along the edge and sprinkled it with black glitter. I placed metal entwined hearts in the lower corner and then topped them with a tiny white paper rose.

   I am so happy with the ATC's that I received in this swap. Each is so beautiful in their own way. I love seeing how others interpreted the Glitter theme. Thanks for my beautiful cards.

Take Care
