Seriously...



I LOVE this stamp set, have had it for several weeks, and am just now getting around to using it. SERIOUSLY!! I started with a Basic Black card base and added a piece of Pumpkin Pie that was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. White dots were added with the Signo Gel Pen from SU! The main image was stamped on Whisper White CS in Taken With Teal classic ink. Once that dried, I covered the entire piece of CS with Versamark ink (turn your Versamark ink pad upside down and just blot it all over your CS) and Heat & Stick Powder. I used my heat tool and melted the powder. I immediately added Dazzling Diamonds while the Heat & Stick was still warm and sticky... hence the name. SERIOUSLY!! I "flicked" (that's a technical term) the excess Dazzling Diamonds off and used my heat tool to heat the Heat & Stick and the Dazzling Diamonds again just to set the glitter. While that was still warm, I used a scrap piece of paper, laying it over the top of the image and gently rubbing to make sure the glitter was set firmly. I added my main image and a strip of Taken With Teal to another piece of Basic Black CS and tied a piece of traitor ribbon in a bow. ("Traitor" is any product that DIDN'T come from SU! for you newbies.)
Here's a closeup, at a different angle, so you can see the glitter a little better. These photos still don't do this card justice. SERIOUSLY!! I love, love glitter, so this card was right up my alley! I hope you like it, too! Toodles!

Hi Jen
Please don't show anymore samples using this set as your sample is making me sick. Yes, you guessed it, your giving me the dreaded iwannagitit disease. :)
