Glitter, glitter and more glitter!
Barbara, Soni and I are back from Boston, where we attended the Collins Group Trade Show. We had a great time taking LOTS of classes, learning new techniques, seeing lots of new product, making plenty of samples and meeting such talented people in our industry.
One of the things that WOWED everyone was this new, micro fine glitter. It was the hit of the show.
And here is Els van de Burgt, owner of Elizabeth Craft Designs with a sample board of the beautiful cards she made with this fabulous glitter.
I took her class and made the following two cards. Unfortunately, the pictures do not do the cards justice. The technique is quite simple and you end up with a gorgeous card that sparkles to the hilt yet feels so smooth to the touch! And so the name of the technique - the burnished velvet technique. You end up with a truly elegant card.
Stop by the shop and see these cards in person - you will not be disappointed.
I can't wait for the glitter to arrive so we can have some classes in making these stunning cards!
Thanks for stopping by,
