At last ... the nifty glitter trick

I mentioned that, at the Birmingham Open Night, Shelli Gardner had a really nifty glitter trick. Well here it is at last.

See those blingy brads? Look expensive, don’t they? How wrong could you be?! Take a mini glue dot and mould it around an ordinary silver brad, then simply dip it into your glitter pot: glittery brads!

I’m not a big fan of glitter but even I love this trick – especially as it doesn’t leave you covered in glitter for days.

The stamp set is Alison’s Simply Said. I’m enjoying using this while I can because, pretty soon, she’s going to realise I still have it and demand that I return it.

Cardstock: Regal Rose, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red
Accessories: Gingham ribbon – black (p86), Brads – silver (p85), Stampin’ Glitter – Dazzling Diamonds (p82), Mini Glue Dots (p81).
