Put a little SPARKLE in your heart! :D


Hi! I hope you're having a wonderful week - it's WEDNESDAY! Halfway through the week. Got big plans for Valentine's Day? :)
Well, last night was our Crystal Effects class, and that "stick..." brand has NOTHING on what we did last night!!! You can sparkle a whole BOTTLE of CE with any of our fine glitters if you want - or use an empty embossing powder jar to mix a bit of each in.
We mixed red SU! glitter with CE, then used either a paintbrush or its handle to freehand the "drops", and I did the hearts freehand, too. We do them on wax paper, and allow them to dry thoroughly - no putting fingerprints in them!!! :)
Tonight, I peeled them off the wax paper and put them on Whisper White card stock after I ran the card stock through the Big Shot (Yup, I hear that - I DO love it!:D) with my SU! exclusive Texturz plate. (This is a 3"x3" card.) The sparkly elements are stuck on with a TINY bit more Crystal Effects. The white card stock is 2.75" square, and the Basic Black is 2-7/8" square. The Real Red card stock card is cut 3"x6"; it's a great card for a gift or to include with flowers or candy. ;D
If you try making some sparkly elements, let me know what you do! I'd LOVE to see what you do - and you can always CONTACT ME or CLICK HERE to go shop now and order some more Crystal Effects and glitter! Let me know what you're stampin'! :D
