Glow in the Dark Stars – Inspiration Challenge #814

Saturday means Inspiration Challenge.  I found this picture that I had the perfect stamp for!

The only thing I really had to think about was how to do the sky. I decided I wanted it to glow in the dark. You can pretty much sell me anything if it glows in the dark, so I had to have this Lawn Fawn EP. Unfortunately, I don’t have success with it as embossing powder. I decided today to just treat it like glitter. I’m happy to report that it worked quite well and glows beautifully.

The background is made with Elizabeth Craft Designs double sided adhesive tape on a piece of cardstock. It allowed both the glow in the dark embossing powder  and the Glitter Ritz microfine glitter to perfectly stick.

The fox is colored with E18, E08, E99, E21, and E51.  The bird is B05 and B24.  The grass is YG13, YG25, and YG17.

It doesn’t get much better than this.  Sparkly, glittery fabulousness in the light and glow in the dark.

This will be my last post for at least a week.  We’re going to take a week long family vacation down the Cape.  I’m excited, but I sure will miss my craft room!

This fits into these challenges:

Balloons and Glitter – Inspiration Challenge #805

Saturday is the Inspiration Challenge and what a fascinating Pinterest board Kia gave us for inspiration today. This photo reminded me that I had this sweet digi waiting on my to do list. It was a freebie from Digi Doodle Studios for the Kit and Clowder Facebook Group. I noticed that the Digi Doodle Challenge is to add glitter and couldn’t resist that. I also couldn’t color up a plain dress after looking at that inspiration site, so I put colorful spots all over her dress to imitate the balloon dress.

Skin: E95, E21, E00, R20 | Hair: Y21, E43, E44, E47

I wanted her to look hip and I’ve noticed a lot of people wearing blue reflective sunglasses this year. They were fun to do. Added some Stickles to them for good measure. Look at the sparkle!

All the Glitter! – Ways to Use It Challenge #836

What’s the challenge today?  Glitter!

Yes, please!  I recently bought some Glitter Ritz Microfine glitter.  It makes this fabulous smooth velvety glitter finish.  But I had to watch some Youtube videos first.  I don’t have the adhesive sheet that she used in the video.  I have Stick-It adhesive, which is the same idea, but different enough that I had a problem.  That problem is that the Stick-It has lines cut through the backing to make it easier to peel off.  However, as you can see in this photo, it leaves behind a break in the adhesive.

So I had to completely change my plan for this card.  I had originally planned to glitter up this design of this Picket Fence Studios die and kind of frame it and let it be the star of my card.  I pretty much always make two cards at a time, so I had one with the “Blush” color in the background and one with the “Sahara” color in the background.  But since I couldn’t solve the problem of that break in the adhesive, I only made one card today.  I die cut the best parts with my Waffle Flower nesting hearts dies.

So I stamped and fussy cut this adorable Art Impressions frog that I won in their December Challenge.  Now what?  More glitter! I wanted to frame the hearts and frog, and I had this leftover gold frame die cut close by.  I stamped the script in the background of the frame and embossed with iridescent embossing powder.  Needs more glitter.  So I die cut a Hello (from PTI) in glitter fun foam.  Needs….more glitter!  Stickles on the frog and flower.  And how about some Wink of Stella on the stem and leaf for good measure?  Look at that sparkle!

That itty bitty frog and that itty bitty microfine glitter needs to be entered into the Art Impressions Itty Bitty Challenge don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
