Glitter Tape!!!

By | March 5, 2016

Have you seen the new Sale-A-Bration Glitter Tape?  It’s AWESOME!!!!

You can select this tape for free when you place an order for $50 before March 31, 2016.  The Glitter Tape comes with three separate rolls — gold, silver and clear.  But the best thing is that you can color the clear tape, and it comes out GORGEOUS!!!!  Can you tell that I’m excited?  I got this tape at least a week ago, and I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to use it!

I set out to make an Easter card, so I picked all subtle colors:

Color Combo-001

To color the Clear Glitter Tape, I placed strips on a Silicon Craft Sheet and then colored them with Sponge Daubers.

On a side note, did you know that you can wash Sponge Daubers with soap and water and re-use them?  I do it all the time.  (Same thing with my Stamping Sponges.)

The Glitter Tape was a little messy … it took some time for the ink to dry, so be careful.  So, fair warning, because I immediately placed the strips on my Whisper White cardstock, and I had a few finger smudges to cover up.  Also, when I cut the Oval Framelits Die out of the center, some of the ink got on my Big Shot glass.  So, be sure to check and clean that up with a baby wipe before your next project.

I don’t have a lot of “Easter” themed stamps, so instead I chose a good old Spring classic — Butterfly Basics.  I also used the Crazy About You stamp set for the greeting.  The Butterfly Basics stamp set is one of my favorites.  I did a whole Stamps In The Mail class with it last year, including 12 cards and 6 bonus projects.  It’s that versatile.  I particularly adore the lacy butterfly stamp.  It’s so delicate a pretty.  You can buy this stamp set in a bundle with the coordinating Butterflies Thinlits Dies for 15% off.

To stay consistent with the glitter theme of my card, I used a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to “glitz up” the two butterflies.  I also thought it would be fun to add a few fun embellishments that were left over from my Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.  I twisted the string of pearls and used glue dots to adhere them.  The sequins come from that kit as well.

Before I adhered the layer with the glitter tape, I marked the oval gently with a pencil and stamped the ferns (being careful to mask the outside edges of my card, so they stayed white.)
