Glitter-fly

A very good morning to you all!
Hope you enjoyed the lovely posts by my teamies & our GD. This month is all about glam-n-glitter at Color Conceptions with the release of our own brand of glitter in 15 sparkling colors.


Today I will share a very simple technique to make flower stamens with glitter. Let me take you through the pictorial. 
Gather your supplies - Glue gun, glue stick, floral stems, loose glitter. 

 

Once the glue gun is ready to use evenly spread the glue on the tips of the floral stem.


Quickly dip this into the glitter & viola your stamen is ready! Easy, didn't I tell you?


I used all the glitter colors I had & used these to make calla lilies which I'll show you in a bit.


Another quick & easy glitter technique to add dimension to your embellishment.
I first die cut  a MB pippi butterfly in the corner of a CS (will be used later) to create a negative space. Then the CS was embossed & distressed with a blend of these colors squeezed lemonade, peeled paint & salty ocean. After which I stamped a script over it (hope you can see it!) with distress paint (picket fence)


Next glue a cellophane tape on the backside as shown here,


Now sprinkle some glitter over & spread it evenly into negative of the die cut & tap off the excess. This is what it will look like - 


I also die cut the same butterfly in acetate & used the Wink of Stella clear brush marker to add a bit of shimmer to it. The die cut was distressed & both these were layered over the glitter one. This really looks fantastic in real with the glitter peeking from under the butterfly.


Here is the finished card...........hope you like the handmade calla lilies too!
