Wanna Party?

DSCF4930

Hey everybody! Today is Sharon's Stamp Simply's 100th challenge! Woohoo! To celebrate, we're making birthday stuff--cards, gifts, you name it! And there are presents, and blog candy, and all kinds of fun things on lots of blogs! I have chosen to make a glittery, clean & simple-style card that is quick and easy to do! It's a fun technique many of you have probably tried before, but it's always fun to have a refresher:

Cameras and glitter just don't seem to get along---the colors of Martha Stewart glitter I used were Kunzite, Garnet and Carnelian....just pretend you can see all the pretty glitteriness here! And they really match my ink much better than represented here! LOL!

To get this glittering effect, punch out some stars, then the circles around them. Put some wide, clear packing tape on the back of each opening and liberally sprinkle on some glitter! That's it! I know that SU has a Sticky Paper (of course, I don't have any!) and there are other products out there that would be easier, but I used what I had! The sentiment is from PTI's Star Prints, stamped in Pixie Pink/Melon Mambo; the little star has also been colored with a Gelly Roll pen. The big ribbon (gasp!) is from my stash...I would have liked to have had a better edge cut on it....but it just wouldn't behave!

So be sure you check out all the other designers that Sharon has today---they've been busily creating and gathering blog candy goodies, so grab a tall iced tea and check them out! Have a great weekend!
