Introducing Sparkly Fun Friday -- Valentine's Day Style

Sparkly Fun Fridays features a sparkly or glittery project using shimmer paints, embossing powders, glitters, rhinestones... anything shiny to welcome the weekend in a fun way!!!

Hi everyone,

We love glitter!!! We love glitter!!! We love glitter!!! I feel like marching down the street wearing a sign, proclaiming my love for glitter. Just can't get enough.

There are so many glittery elements on this card, all with different methods. Unfortunately, it is so difficult to have it reflected in the photos. You'll have to click on the pics to view them larger. Trust me, they're there!!!

I love adding dimension on my cards and a good way to do that is by using the Movers & Shapers dies for the Big Shot. And here's a little tip: before you run your cardstock into the Big Shot, align a piece of DSP at the bottom of your cardstock so you can cut both layers at the same time.

I love how the Movers & Shapers die, the Full Heart Punch as well as the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set all coordinate to give the perfect layering effect.

Look at that heart-shaped peak-a-boo! The heart was stamped with a combination of Classic Ink and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. The scalloped border is also sparkly since I sprayed it with a combo of rubbing alcohol and Champagne Mist as well. So much fun to make! You can change the look of any paper, cardstock or embellishment with a simple shimmery spray. Another bonus: it dries really quickly so you can use it almost right away.

Even the gorgeous Sending Love Specialty DSP is shimmery. Can you feel the love?! I can :-)

Have a nice stampin' day!
