This is one of the glitters I received to create with and I have to say, I'm a big fan of crystal glitter.  I love it because you can change the color and still be just as sparkly as if you had used color glitter.  Here's what I did to create my card.  Using a piece of Double-Sided Mounting Paper (aka Sticky Paper!) trimmed to fit my stencil, LL3036.  I covered the entire side with Crystal Art Glitter, taped my stencil on and airbrushed the stencil with my Copics.  I created my card base using Bazzill and my patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Apple Cider Collection 6x6 paper pad.  I trimmed a second piece of Bazzill and adhered my sticky stenciled piece to the Bazzill.  I layered all my pieces on the card base adhering them with Beacon Zip Dry.  Using Tiny Alphabet Perfectly Clear™ Stamps and Happy Messages Perfectly Clear™ Stamps from Stampendous! Stamps®, I stamped my sentiment with Memento® Tuxedo Black, layered it, trimmed it and pop-dotted it on!  Very easy to create and so very sparkly!

Check out the rest of this week's awesomeness which includes our super sparkly guest designer and previous Dream Team member...

I hope you've enjoyed my card today and that it has given you at least a little inspiration.  Don't forget about the two sales mentioned above!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll have a new post tomorrow as we wrap up the week with Maya Road and Stampendous!
