Flowers & Glitter

Quick post today - it's been a busy start to a busy week.  But I am feeling lots better - thanks for all the get better wishes!  I took a break from Halloween and Christmas projects to make a couple of sets of cards with the Flower Fancy stamp set.  Please excuse the kind of dark cell phone pictures! 

I'm obsessed with glitter on my projects lately, and used Dazzling Diamonds on both these card sets.  I used a two way glue pen to adhere the glitter, it's fabulous because it's permanent, goes on blue and dries clear and has a narrow marker-like tip, so you can see exactly what you're doing and place the glitter exactly where you want it.

I made one set to give as a gift...



and one set to send out to some customers...



Happy Monday!  Have a creative week!

Hey, Joanne! I love the designs you put on the front of the cards, but I'm always at a loss as to what to do with the inside. I have a couple ideas, but I need some new ideas. Any help?

Really, really pretty. A glue pen - that's something I'm not familiar with!

Emily - do you mean stamping on the inside? Greetings? Something else? Lemme know and I will share some ideas!

Anything, greetings, any stamp... usually the layout of the greeting though.

I usually do one of two things, I either choose a larger sentiment stamp and stamp in right in the center of the card, OR - I leave it totally blank (I kind of write a LOT in cards - so I need the room, ha ha!) I very rarely stamp images inside cards, unless they are invitations. There are also some really cute elongated sentiment stamps that would look cute along the bottom on the inside of the card... :) There's no rules - just whatever looks good and works for you!
