Cute simple glittery gifts

This card is pretty enough to give to a good friend and simple enough to do when you think you just don’t have enough time.. although you do need some drying time.

I started with the card (already had lighter circles on darker blue background) by AMuse, and added the little gift stamps, stamped in VersaFine black ink.  The gifts are from a clear Stampendous set, and the ‘happy birthday’ is by Hero Arts.

Next, I just added a touch of aqua glitter glue to the bows and allowed them to dry. 

Tip:  The “professional” glittering technique?  Squeeze and smoosh.  That’s right.  Squeeze out a little dab of glitter glue, then smoosh it around the area you want it.  This way, you won’t get a crazy thick kindergarten looking glob.

This one’s up on my Etsy Store

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
