February smART Word Challenge - Glitter!!!

This month on the smART Word Challenge blog it is my turn to pick the Word. What did I pick...well, GLITTER, of course!! I picked glitter because it could be used for Valentine cards but if you were done all your valentine cards, or don't make any, you could always make a birthday or any other occasion card. Any card looks great with GLITTER, right!! I actually made a whole bunch of cards. You see, once I pull out the glitter, I like to make as many cards as possible!! Here are just 2 of the cards that I made. I'll post the rest later in the month!! Keep an eye out for them!!
This first card was lots of fun to make. I started out making the actual heart. I took one of the petals from the smARTworks Petal Power set. Then I colored them in with my red pencil color (Prisma) and blended with odorless thinner. Next, I took these awesome Grundgeboard (Ranger) wings and painted them white. When the paint was still wet, I sprinkled some dazzling diamond glitter (Stampin' Up!). Yum, yum, yum!! Then, I used some designer paper (BasicGrey) and adhered red glue strip around the edge and sprinkled on red glitter. I used the word 'love' from the Birdhouse Trio set (smARTworks).
This next card is actually the first card I created. I started out by stamping the largest outline petal from Petal Power (smARTworks) twice onto some scratch white paper. Then, I made a mask so I could stamp inside the heart. I took some flowers (FL18 - Shorties, smARTworks) and some words (Piggy Dreams) and randomly stamped them inside being sure the do some 'stamping off' for depth. Then I added some Stardust Stickles (Ranger) for that yummy glittery goodness. I also used the stripe and dot lines from the Petal Power set to create the strip that is adhered along the bottom. The small sentiment is from Lock and Key (smARTworks). Both the heart and the strip are distressed with Antique Linen (Ranger) distress ink.
So come and play along!! Pull out your glitter and create something fun. Link your card up to the Mr. Linky on the smART Word Challenge. Remember, you can use any products you have on hand but if you do use smART rubber on your entries you will earn a smART Buck ... very cool!!
See you over at the challenge.
