Glitter Glue Dots -- Oh My!!!

Glitter Glue Dot Technique
I used Stampin Up paper mellow moss
Michaels Recollections stamps 
VersaMark watermark stamp pad
Michaels Recollection extra fine glitter - Apricot
3 different paper tapes (can not remember by who)

I saw a video where the lady laid out glue dots and used embossing powder and heat set it.  So I decided to use glitter and use the small glue dots and it came out pretty cool.  I may try this on a larger area or even try the embossing technique.  My goal is to try more techniques that I find in magazines as well as enter more blog competions.

Stampin Up ribbon
MFT clear stamp " Let's hear it for the boys"

I thought I would try my hand using inchies.  So I decided to incorporate it into a card.  The cardstock is from Stampin Up (not sure of the color).  I used old scraps of paper and glued to a card and used my squeeze 1 inch punch to punch out the squares.  I also used metal sheets by QuicKutz.  The lamp rubber stamp is from Unity stamp Itty Bitty called On the bright side (1B-01).  The Kraft paper is from Recollections from Micheal's best to use and cheap to buy when on sale.



This LO marks 12 years that my husband and I have been together.  We had an awesome family weekend.  We drove to Charlotte, NC. to go to IKEA (and it is everything that anyone has ever said about the store.  We can't wait to go back with a shopping list) and to see the Green Bay Packers play the Carolina Panthers.  We stayed in an amazing hotel and the girls just loved the pampering.  Every once in a while you should allow someone else to cook and clean.  For this 12x12 LO I used:
Bazzill 12x12 "butterfly" paper
Bazzill 6x11 bling strawberry cardstock
12x12 Little Yellow Bicycle "floral ledger" paper
DCWV 5x7 blue cardstock
Me & My Big Ideas 5x7 Modern Milan paper
cricut cartridge "Printing Press" for number "1" ans "2" cut at 3.34width x 5.00height using the gypsy and cricut imagine
- the number were cut 6x's.  3x's in the bling strawberry and 3x's in the white (cut at 6x11) and glued together to look like a thicker
BIC mark it markers in the extra fine point to color the flowers on the side and to do the journaling.

The Techie Scrapper

I decided to try more 12x12 page LO's.  They do not come easy to me.  I used mu Cricut Imagine and the "Lyrical" cartridge.  Techie Scrapper cut at 2.0.  I also used my little sewing machine and I sewed down the 6x6 Authentique "Uncommon" paper with stickers from Karen Foster Design.  Paper tape is old and I do not remember the brand name.
