"You Tube" Video of the Double Glitter Technique

I have really enjoyed doing this double glitter technique with "sticky paper". I cheated a bit and added the yellow-gold mounting paper to give the pink and black an added kick. Recently I was a guest on the TV show Scrapbook Soup and if you want to watch exactly how to do this umbrella using this fun technique click on this YOU TUBE link to take you to the TV session. I tend to be a visual person and I am sure that at least the majority of crafters are the same, so it is nice to be shown how to do a technique, instead of reading the details. You can also email me at if you want me to email you the step by step process of double glittering. The rest of the card was very simply done. The raindrops stencil (LJ905) was paste-embossed with Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP) onto bright pink cardstock. The Showers of Blessing sentiment (LG738) was paste-embossed with Glossy White Embossing Paste (DGWP) onto glossy black cardstock and then glittered with hot pink glitter before it dried. (Marj Marion was again the inspiration for this rain words stencil.) In the YOU TUBE video the umbrella stencil used is (LG737) and the dots stencil (LJ804) was over-layed onto the umbrella stencil and stenciled in black pigment ink.

One thing the Dreamweaver Design Team has done recently is a blog hop with our sister team in the UK. The theme of the hop was stenciling and creating on things that are NOT paper. So for our upcoming "Call" for a new design team we will probably be asking those of you who are interested in trying out for the team to do the same. Put your thinking caps on and look back at the old posts from a few weeks ago to see what our blog hopping team created for this amazing challenge. My favorite saying is: "No idea is immaculately conceived", so be inspired to inspire!
