Glitzy Elements to Dazzle!

Happy Friday everyone! I'm stopping in for a brief post to go along with a Stampendous theme on a fantastic couple of techniques that you can see here and here (Youtube videos). 

Remember all those fun glitters, flakes and embossing enamels from Stampendous? Use them up and make a magnificent background or accent on any project. For great ideas stop by these blogs!



and me!

For my Polar Bear card, I used the Glitzy Adhesive Technique. You can read about how I made the card below or just click the link above to get the technique idea! Do both if you have time, right? And if you want to print out my card as a project sheet head on over to the Stampendous website here.
