Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop



It is that time of the month again when we get to hop all over Blogland enjoying a buffet of Papertrey products!! In addition to the Hop I want to include my Happy Birthday wishes to AAA Cards Challenge blog who is 2 years old!!






I created a balloon mask from a scrap of clear acetate and then inked up my three balloons individually.  I then went back over each one with a different stencil : )  I drew a fine "string" down to my hand at the bottom of the card and then added my sentiment : )   Next I tried something new -  I have always wanted to spray my card with a spray adhesive and toss glitter on it.  It worked even better than I hoped : ) I used a super fine Crystal Glitter by Stampendous!  It does not show really well in the picture but this is one sparkly card!!



Any place that had too much glitter I simply rubbed off with my adhesive remover. After it completely dried there was no sticky residual left at all!

Thank you for joining me today at the hop for PTI and in congratulating AAA cards for two fun years of challenges!

I have to be gone all day today but I promise I will get to each of your blog in the next couple of days!

Patti

Supplies:
Balloon Bash die used to create stencil by PTI
Misc stencils from my stash
Hand die from "In The Bag" by PTI

Patti, this is absolutely beautiful. I love the softness of it. Can you believe I completely forgot about the blog hop. In fact don't even remember seeing this one.

Spray glue and glitter sounds, and looks, like a fab techique. Pretty subtle colours on your card and I can just imagine the real life shimmer. Thanks for joining in AAA Cards birthday celebrations.

This is beautiful. Love the close up that really shows the shimmer. Can't go wrong with balloons. And, thanks for the offer of those tractors. Well, I checked my stash, and it looks like I do have that stamp set! (skulking away with shame face....) You have just given me more incentive to pull them out.

Adorable card Patti. Great job with the glitter. Glitter and me dont always get along. It invades my hair, skin and my craft table takes weeks to be free from its grips. But it makes a statement of "I am special" on our cards and so we deal with the mess it makes. Your cards are adorable and I am glad you are now in the "glamor and glitter" world. Thanks for mentioning the spray adhesive. will have to try that too!

Asha said...

Oooooh sooooo pretty! You know I ADORE glitter and this card added extra sparkle to my day! LOVE it, Patti.
hugs, Asha
