Just a note + New glitter technique

Happy Thursday everyone!! Here is a quick card I put together last night... When I'm not feeling too crafty I will just stamp a bunch of Greeting Farm stamps and color them in. That way another night I can just go to my pile of stamps already colored and throw together a quick card! :) 

This angel is a Greeting Farm stamp. She is from the stamp set Naughty or Nice. Just a Note is from Pink by Design's "Scripted Year" stamp set. I've recently learned a new technique for glitter. Instead of using stickles I bought a set of Martha Stewart fine glitter. First I apply Glossy accents and then cover that area with glitter and put it aside for awhile to let it dry. I love this new technique! You get a much more even coat of Glitter appose to stickles AND it shows up so much better in pictures. :)  It's also cheaper then using stickles. I used a 50% off coupon on the glitter and got a pack of 12 colors for $10.00! :)


Don't forget about the Pink by Design giveaway. Enter to win here...Have a nice day!
