Glitter Glitz Pumpkin

I'm back from my week vacation with my family in Indiana. I had a wonderful time and we had a huge family reunion. If it hadn't been for missing my hubby and critters I'd have not wanted to return.

While I was gone I did manage to get some fun papercraft shopping in and just look what I discovered! GLITTER GLITZ! Oh my...if you love stickles and glitter and lots of sparkle on your cards then you are going to love, Love, LOVE Glitter Glitz. I have the usual home from vacation cleaning and laundry to do but I couldn't help but make a really quick and simple card using a brass stencil and sticky paper and glitter glitz.

The pumpkin brass stencil is an old, old stencil I've had for years which I've used for dry embossing, embossing paste and now with Glitter glitz. The stencil doesn't have a manufacturer's name on it so I can't identity the maker for you. I chose this because (A.) I love pumpkins (B.) I need to make some autumn swap cards (C.) This card was so fast to make that I can get back to my housework and still have a chance to play with my new toys.

I hope this closeup shot shows how colorful and sparkle-y this card is. You are going to see a lot of cards using every stencil in my stash using the glitter glize product. It is so fun! I know...I'm an embellishment junkie.

Until later....

  5. This is gorgeous Jennifer. I recently bought a bunch of older brass stencils for use with embossing paste because of all the wondrous things you do. Now, you are showing me another use for them. Yipppeeee! I'm with Jan I'd love to know more about this product.
