Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

It’s time for another Blast from the Past Challenge. I just love going back and watching Gina’s Technique Videos and working on the challenge. This week I selected the “How to use it: Colored Glitter” video. I have always loved working with glitter but have to say I was doing it the “hard” way. If you watch Gina’s video you can learn the easy way to add lots of glitter colors and get perfect results, even in the smallest areas. I have an extra little tip that helped me get more glitter back in the bottle: I rubbed my “Anti-Static Pad” over the paper I was working on before pouring the glitter out and it slid back into the bottle a little easier. Maybe I was just all charged up over this neat technique and my glitter was sticking to the paper, LOL!

I hope you will enjoy working on this challenge.

Here is my card.

Geri and Brenda are my guest designers. Here are their cards to give you additional ideas.

Now it’s your turn! Please watch the How to use it: Colored Glitter video then upload your card to the StampTV gallery using the key word stvbpss02. You do not need to use Gina K stamps to participate. A little perk though, if you do use Gina K stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the random drawing twice. Remember you can only enter the card you create for just one challenge. Using one card for multiple challenges on STV is no longer permitted.

You have until next Thursday at 8p.m. CST to upload your entry. One winner will be selected in a random drawing and will win a GinaK Designs stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95.

Here is the gallery link to all cards entered with the stvbpss02 tag.

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas. My next post will be Christmas day.
