    I so love glitter. I hate that it gets everywhere, but I do love it so. I also love options. 😀 So thanks again, ladies, for showcasing such a versatile array of uses for one technique! You all rock!

    Such gorgeous cards and a beautiful technique. Somehow I think I would be wearing more glitter than my card if I tried this one!

    This was my favorite challenge because I love how glitter dresses up a card or element and adds that extra pizzaz.

    Missed most of Stamp-A-Faire do to my work schedule, but did get a card made for this challenge. Betsy’s background technique brought back memories of a card I made in a class years ago & in fact, I included it in my blog post. Thanks for the fun challenge! Still plan to use a lot of the SAF info in the future–so much inspiration!

    Glitter adds so much “pop” to a card and I just don’t use it enough. Thanks for showing different ways to use it and encouraging us all to do it more.

    Great technique. Glitter is so fun, but can be pretty messy so thanks for the tips on keeping it on the card. I really like the phone book tip, too. 🙂
