Stars and stripes, glitter and spice

 Hi All, I am sharing this card I made for the Gecko Galz design team using this months image from Little Miss Firecracker, this image really spoke to me.  I added some lace Stickles to the stars, I cut a few extra stars for embellishments then sprinkled with some clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.  I mounted it to a Night of Navy blue card stock with my Perfect Rulers, then mounted that to my white card base.  For the envelope I used some tissue paper to make the matching liner.

So where is the glitter and spice you say?  My friend Debbie saved these awesome spice containers from her husbands clearing out spree.  I'm so happy he decided she did not need them any more, but even happier that she knew I would find a way to re-purpose them.  I packaged up the spices and passed them on to my son and his girlfriend, washed out the jars and filled them with GLITTER!  The tops are perfect for sprinkling or pouring and the nice wide mouths make them perfect for pouring the glitter back in.   I just love looking at them, I even mixed a few glitters together, I love the new blue I came up with!  Next week I will show you a card I made with the new blue glitter too.  Well that's it for  today, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane

  7. Hi Diane, what a beautiful care and I love the image. Always love your matching envelopes too. What a fabulous use of the spice rack for your glitters. It is wonderful. I have mine in old salt and pepper jars on a lazy susan but love yours.

    Have a nice evening.
    Hugs and Blessings!

  8. Lots of movement and so exuberant! I like your "glitter tree"- so easy to see what's on hand! I have the Perfect Rulers, too, but I'm left-handed so have to think things through a bit to use them.

  23. Oops I forgot to thank you for the magic eraser tip. Yes I love them too, can't use them for my floor tiles though as I have 3 very large ones and 2 smaller ones. I would be on my knees for ages lol, luckily I have a long stuff brush and gel bleach...I steam them every week too...it's the white grout which is a problem...now replacing it with dark grey :) Viv xx
