I’ve been playing with digi stamps, acetate and glitter again! Here is the first in a series of glittered acetate projects using The Stamping Boutique and Michelle Perkett Studio digital stamps.

The technique is not hard, you just need some patience and attention to detail. Here’s how to do it…

Print a digital stamp on acetate. I use a laser printer and laser transparencies. Using a fine tip on a Crystal Lacquer bottle (the tips are sold separately), choose the first color and sections of the image that you want to be that color, and add Crystal Lacquer to that area on the dull side (back). If you have text, mirror the image before printing. Sprinkle on the glitter and shake off any excess. Repeat until the image has the amount of color and glitter for the design. Set aside and let it dry.

When it’s dry, cut to size. Brush the glittered side with a soft goat hair brush to remove excess glitter. Drop small amounts of lacquer on top of the glitter and adhere to backing paper. Usually white or cream works well to set off the glitter and detailed image. Embellish and you’re done!

Yes readers, I am FINALLY catching up with Project 12 pages! It is nearing year end and I wanted to do the pages so that I could fill in with more detailed layouts later. I’ve had so much fun with this project! I’ve used BasicGrey on every 2 page spread. I figured that I needed to start weeding out my BasicGrey collection, so it’s a good way to go isn’t it?

This month’s sketch is for September. Don’t forget to click on the image for more detail.

I do LOVE the holidays! My Mom was a huge fan of Christmas – just EVERYTHING about it! She would decorate and make it so special for everyone around her that you couldn’t help but put your troubles aside. My love of the holidays is inspired by her, a true believer that life is so precious and should not be wasted. Be happy, have joy and celebrate!

If you started here at my blog, just keep hopping along until you’ve reached every blog.

Michelle’s personal blog (the 1st in the list below) has a question on it. You’ll need to collect letters from 6 blogs to unscramble for the answer. My letter is “O. The first correct answer that contacts Michelle will win Missy the Mistletoe Pixie!

You can contact her through the etsy store or through PCP, CDAC or SNR.

I created this card for P K Glitz last month and thought you would like to see it! It’s a glittered mosaic card coupled with a heat embossed chipboard circle. The circle is double-embossed so that the greeting really has great dimension like the chipboard circle.
