All that glitters ...

I finally found some stamp time ... yeah baby!  Yesterday afternoon while doing laundry, I had some free time to play in between loads.


I love to participate with the gals over at The Paper Players.  So today's card came from their theme this week ... spring.  While looking at the Design Team's cards, I noticed that Ann, my fellow Pal, had used some Dazzling Diamonds on her card.  Hmmm...I have some of that and haven't used it in a while.  I'll make a card with some sparkle.  Well ....  I'll let my card speak for itself. 


Stamps:  In Full Bloom (retired), Hello Spring (retired)
Paper:  Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa (retired), White
DSP:  Certainly Celery (retired)
Ink:  Black, Close to Cocoa (retired), Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue
Accessories:  CB Fanciful Labels, brads, sponge dauber, Stickles, Prisma Markers, Nestabilities oval dies, dragonfly punch (non SU)
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

Ok, no Dazzling Diamonds but almost a bottle of Stickles...hehehe  I just couldn't stop adding glue glitter or is glitter glue?  This card went from "I like it" to "oh, a bit gaudy".  I still had to post it though.  It just makes me smile and I had so much fun with it.  

The layout came from February's edition of Stampin' Success.  It was on my table so I flipped through it and thought this was a quick and easy layout to use and it was.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Pam, you know... I don't think you can ever have too much glitter :-) Your flower is fabulous and I love the dragonflies. Seeing them on your card reminds me of warm summer days when the dragonflies visit. Which, considering we are expecting another 6 inches of snow, is a wonderful thought! Thank you for taking me to a warmer, springier, place!
So glad you played along with us this week. I always love seeing your creations

Ooh, Pam..love all the wonderful sparkle. Kind of like diamonds, a girl can never have enough.
I really like your Fanciful Label. There is so much out there to want/need/buy. LOL Your card is great!

To answer your question: It doesn't matter which name you use for me. I go by those two or Benz. I have lots of names. LOL Benzi is my SCS name.

Have a good day. I think both of us are probably going to be dealing with a lot of rain, especially tomorrow.

the colors are fabulous and you can never have to much glitter weather it be glitter glue, or regular loose glitter (which never works for me).
