From Penny Black:
4- 8 1/2" x 11" pieces of white cardstock
A fine paint brush
A 1/4" paint brush
Tear Edger (optional)
Acrylic Stamp Block
Begin by cutting the cardstock in half to create 8 cards that measure 5 1/2" wide x 4 1/4" tall. Carefully tear approximately 1/4" off the bottom front using a tear edger tool or just by roughly tearing being careful not to tear up the card front.
Stamp the designs from the Wishes stamp set by Penny Black onto the front.
Now the fun begins. Time to decorate! Use these simple ideas to add sparkle to any card.
Flood the centers in small puddles with of some with Designer Dries Clear Glue and sprinkle glitter or Black Wing Microfine Glitter over the puddle.
Using a small paint brush spread some Designer Dries Clear Glue into the petal areas and sprinkle with glitter. In this picture, you can also see how great the Black Wing Microfine Glitter looks after sprinkling it on over a puddle of glue. Be sure not to forget the stems! Run a line of glue down them using the metal tip and then sprinkle with glitter. Outline the edges such as the dots on this stamped image and add some glitter to bring out the image more.
Here are some close ups of some of my favorites to show you how great the details of these stamps are with glitter added.
This is using the Diamond Dust Vintage Glass Glitter on it.
These Baby Love Glass Beads are perfect for these small flowers.
The shine of the Crystal Glitter combined with the Lemone Glitter make this stamped image pop.
