A few weeks ago I bought a Palette Stamp & Stick ink pad... it's basically a glue pad that you can adhere glitter to. Sounds like it should be awesome, but I couldn't get it to stick!! I contacted the company to get some more information on what I might be doing wrong and ended up gettin a new pad and refill. I was so dissapointed in the original product, but the new one has really made up for it! I just love it!!! The glitter on this card is from Martha Stewart and as you can see it stuck to the glue pretty good! I'm planning on sealing future projects with Kryon spray, but for this one I'm gonna leave it alone to see how the glitter stays adhered.
I would give the new pad two thumbs up.... it worked great! If purchasing this pad I would reccomend buying the kit that has the refill with it and making sure the pad looks nice and white... my old pad was a bit yellowish making me think it was old.
The second card was made for today's sketch challenge on SCS. I used flowers from an Autumn Leaves set. They are stamped on dp, the I added glitter to with a Martha Stewart glue pen and irridescent ice glitter. I love the color combo I used for this card... wasabi, blue bayou and soft sky with coordinating designer papers. It really makes me look forward to spring!
The third card is one I actually did awhile ago and found face down on the floor behind my photo tent! I love the color combo and the striped paper for the fower. This is such a simple and quick project to make, yet it looks really funky! I added faux stitching details to the background paper with coordinating ink.
The last card was made for a color challenge, until I realized I used the wrong colors.... DUH! The flower stems are made with gold cord. I heat embossed the leaves with gold ep so they'd match. I added 1/2 a scalloped circle as a mound for the flowers to grow out of.
Which one do you like best?
