It's Tips and Tricks Thursday over at Skipping Stones and We are Going to Play with GLITTER!

I am excited to be sharing a SUPER stinking fun tutorial today over on the Skipping Stones Design blog! It is all about pulling out that glitter and having some fun!

You're Amazing!  (Multi colored Glitter technique card)


This is the card I created for the tutorial and you can see the full step by step over at Skipping Stones! I hope you stop by and let me know what you think!

As for the answers to some questions that came up yesterday...
...Yes, that is my real hair and yes, I really did dye it blue. I love it. It suits me beyond measure. The Hubbums encouraged me to go ahead and do it after talking about it for a super long time and I am so glad I did! It works for me.

...The photos of the street are taken from the Museum of Science Parking Garage roof. The Museum offers this fun event to members every year allowing us to participate in the crazy fun festivities of Boston's Fourth of July celebration without having to deal with the crowds that you deal with down at the Esplanade. It is SO fun and you get an AWESOME view of the fireworks.

...Yes, I mentioned not taking any fireworks photos and there are a couple in the street shots....funnily enough, a town over was doing theirs while the Pops and Martina McBride were doing their performances prior to the Boston fireworks and I caught them way in the distance in those shots. I kinda love that! I didn't take any of the ones we actually went to see because I just wanted to sit back and enjoy the show!

So, there you have it! And...always know that you can feel free to ask questions here! Just remember to put your email address in when you leave your comment so I can reply! I always feel bad when a no-reply blogger leaves me a question and I can't find a way to contact them!

Ask A Question

Hee-hee! He's from the museum, too. I love gnomes. Just say'n.

I saw someone in the store yesterday with firecracker red hair! Great project--the glittery butterfly is awesome.

What a delightful card. Unfortunately, I have a HUGE phobia when it comes to crafting with glitter. I can barely walk by it in the craft aisle without my body starting to shake with fear.

Okay, sweety-girl! I DEFINITELY have a question! How on EARTH do you manage to control the glitter so well? It doesn't look as tho' a single PIECE of glitter escaped. It's contained and BEAUTIFUL! The card is just wonderful! But then, you make ALL things wonderful! You know I'm your biggest fan! HUGS!

Marlene said...

Of course I love the glitter, but I really love the bow on the side like that.
