Heat embossing is one of my favorite things to do with a rubber stamp. Stephanie at The Stamps of Life has some truly great solid stamps for that. LOVE IT!

For this card, the pumpkin was heat embossed with P K Glitz E P Max. That is embossing powder pumped full of awesome glitter! When the image is heated, the powder seals in the glitter so it totally stays put while giving this great sparkle. Really neat stuff!

The words are heat embossed also but with regular powder. The strip of green sparkle is Sticky Tape with glitter on it. Oh, and isn’t that punched bat border just too cute?? Can’t beat off-season sales! I think I got that punch in March or something on a clearance rack for like $3! Yipppeeee!!!

The challenge this week at Whimsie Doodles was to make an “off color” card – so not red and green for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween, etc.

Ok, so how about pink and brown for Halloween? Not a bad combination once I got started! A bit retro-ish, this card turned out pretty cute! Now who would appreciate a pink and brown Halloween card? My friend Pam in NH no doubt so I’ll pop it in the mail to her tomorrow to see if it can get there by Saturday. 🙂 Be on the look out Pam!

I’ve been busy using P K Glitz products on various projects that I can now post to show you! P K Glitz has a fantastic variety of glitter, embossing powder and glitzed embossing powder. Her add-on products are equally great like the Sticky Tape, Sticky Paper and WonderFilm. All of those items are terrific for either the glitter or embossing powder. Isn’t that FAB??!!!

I was lucky enough to receive the Vintage Summer May 2010 kit from Dixie Pieces (see the side bar for a clickable link to their store) to create with in September/October. The kit has lots of goodies – cardstock, paper, ribbon, acrylic stamps and lots of embellishments! There is some really fun We R Memory Keepers items and Pink Paislee papers in the kit that offer a nice variety for fun and spunky to more serious for those non-cutesy projects.

I’ll share a couple cards with you today and tomorrow we’ll look at a couple scrapbook pages.

How can you go wrong by adding glitter to a page, especially a holiday themed one?

Taking the BasicGrey Challenge this week, I added P K Glitz‘ Glitter Glitz (crystal, NST copper and china red) and E P Lite (copper penny) to my 6×6 recipe page. Can you see it? Sticky Tape and a glue pen worked great for the bottom section and chipboard ornament. The brads were covered with E P Lite for further glitz enhancement. I love my glitz!
