Playing In The Glitter!

Today I decided it was time to play in the glitter!  Sometimes I feel like such a kid when I have all of my craft goodies spread out on my desk.  I mean, think about it.  Us paper crafters play with glue and tape and markers and paints and paper… just like we did when we were in kindergarten.  It feels very cathartic to be surrounded by the same items you were surrounded by in your childhood only now the quality of our craft items is WAY better!!

So I broke out my Glitter Ritz Glitter by Elizabeth Crafts to play with today.  I made it tutorial about using her glitter a while back and you can find it HERE.  The whole cupcake panel is covered in glitter and then has been colored with markers.  I took the photo outside in natural light, so you can't really see the glittery effect like you can when I take it under lights, but trust me, it's there, and it's sparkly!  I cut out a circle with my Silhouette Cameo and used Peel-Off Stickers for the cupcake, stars, and silver border.  I matted everything in black card stock.

On the inside of the card I used the happy birthday sentiment from the Mark's Finest Papers stamp set called Lighthouses.  I stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark ink, and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, so that it would match the silver Peel-Off Stickers.

Have you ever felt like you've completely reverted back to your childhood when you have out your markers and your scissors and your glue, or is it just me?

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
