I’m not a huge fan of glitter, but wanted to make a card for my sister for St. Patrick’s Day that was almost all glitter.  The card references the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, so I thought it was a perfect card to play with several different techniques.  I made a water colored rainbow glittery, as well as showed how to alter punches to make them work for you and used the Xyron to make gluing things together a snap.  I created my own matching black paper with embossing powders and in the end, the card is pretty frisky, but only if you like a glittery card.

I don’t usually do a lot with glitter because of the mess, but honestly, I didn’t have any mess (other than the embossing powder I dumped on my background.)  Let’s be honest, we’ve all done that a time or two.

I’m starting to feel better about things as now I’m two videos ahead of Rich and I’m hoping he puts one up tomorrow and I’ll keep the train rolling with more videos so I stay ahead of him.

I thought I’d make a video on the different black inks I own.  I own quite a few and for a variety of reasons.  Some I bought because I thought they would be blacker than the ones I currently owned.  Some I bought to work with alcohol inks etc.  Let’s just say that I have a variety of them and thought it would be a good video for the newer crafter.  Let’s face it, we’ve all bought the wrong inks from time to time and hopefully, this will help people avoid that pitfall.

  1. I decided I should make it when we went shopping because there are so many different varieties and they work differently on different papers and with different mediums, so tonight is the night for the big black ink video. Of course it’s going to be a few days before Rich gets it on as I have the St. Patrick’s Day card yet to put up.
