Hi friends! Today I have a fun card that makes use of double-sided paper (or scraps) and gives us a chance to use glitter in a subtle, yet effective way!
Chose the papers you want to work with and then pick a few ink pads to match. If you don’t have ink pads you can always use any water based markers you have to ink up the rubber. It is so much easier to pick your paper first than trying to find paper that matches your project after you have stamped it. Watch the video to see how this was made and learn the selective glitter technique!

Bonus Technique! You can use the Quickie glue pen with heat transfer foil or foil leaf as well, just make sure to wait til it goes clear before pressing foil to it. You do not need to be as particular with the glitter though. Just look for really fine clear/iridescent glitter and you will be all set. This technique looks really pretty on landscape scenes too so I hope you give it a try on your next project! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
