Time For The Bubbly - MFT



I recently bought a few sets of these stamps by My Favourite Things, and love them. I found a challenge to use their stamps with two different types of bling on a card. So this one has been paper pieced to within an inch of it's life. I cut out the mirror, ran it backwards through a xyron and sprinkled with Great Impressions sparkling ice glitter (by backwards, I mean run it through with the stamped side down, which applies an even layer of adhesive to the image. Sprinkle this with glitter, then run it through again with the glitter uppermost. Then I added rhinestone gems to some of the bubbles. So lots of glitz and glitter, perfect for the new year.

That's what I need - I have been pulling files and shifting to make room for more files at the job I have been doing, a long soak looks pretty good to me. Great card. Love all the bling
