Glittery Shimmery Birthday Celebrations

Hello Monday!  I have had a busy week and sorry for the no show on my blog.  I do have something really fun to share and a technique because this week we are rocking the techniques at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge.   

How about some bling and I mean really shimmery really messy and really glittery?

Don't look directly into the Luxe it will make it hard to see... :) 

I have to tell you I am in love with the new Stampendous Luxe mixes.  I spent quite some time playing around with the luxe on  a few different cards.

I started on these cards from backgrounds that were splotches of Dylusion sprays with a touch of painted on dots and circles. 

So my technique this week to share is a glittery cascade of bling!
I took some really good glue (Zip Dry)  and smeared it along the top  of my cardstock. I also dragged it downwards to create drips.
Then I pulled out that magical luxe and poured it over the surface. (Make sure to have something to catch all the extra goodies behind it so you can dump it back into the container.)

After that you press it onto the glue with your fingers and shake off the excess. I didn't like how my drips looked so I rubbed them off and just left the top half full of glue.  If you miss any spots or want more of the mica you can always add dots of glue over the glitter and add more mica flakes.

I loved how this one turned out although my girls like the other ones with the color better.

Don't forget that all this month is a party at Simon Says Stamp celebrating Stamptember!

Why Stamptember?  Here is a little info on why Simon Says Stamp celebrates stamping in September.  Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. For more than 10 years we have celebrated rubber stamping and its glory. We work to bring companies from around the world together in a one stop shopping environment. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a “STAMPtember®" event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the delight of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.

  Don't forget to come join in on the fun and rock your techniques!
