A Glitter Challenge...

Anyone who knows me knows that I {heart} using glitter on my cards and projects, so when I saw the tacky glitter technique SCS challenge I had to try it! This gave me the opportunity to use some retired SU berry razzle glitter to go with my new fave Raspberry Fizz PTI cardstock as well as my heart-shaped nesties.

I have three (now two) different widths of tacky tape, which allowed me to really have some fun with this challenge even though I used simple straight lines. The main panel used berry razzle glitter and the base was edged in dazzling diamonds.

My main goal in this design (besides the obvious tacky glitter challenge) was to make a cookie that reminded me of my mom's Valentine frosted sugar cookies with cinnamon hearts. I am salivating just thinking about them. I sponged pink pirouette ink on the main heart and stamped hearts in Raspberry Fizz, then glazed the entire heart with crystal effects. I used the heart die to cut a piece of acetate to stamp the sentiment and layer to the heart.

Stamps: Heart Sentiments (PTI); Birds, Trees and Messages ( Hero Arts)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Noir, Pink Pirouette, Stazon Black
Paper: White, Raspberry Fizz
Accessories: Transparency, Crystal Effects, Tacky Tape, Dazzling Diamonds, Berry Razzle
