On Your Mark, Get Set...

...KISS!  This week, Stampendous® is hopping with Glue Dots®, my favorite little dots of glue ever!  There are so many fun things you can do with them, use them to adhere items to each other, add embossing powder and heat, or, my favorite, add glitter! It's so easy, just sprinkle a little glitter on top and, using your finger, burnish the glitter into the dot.  It's the perfect way to add little bits of sparkle here and there!

The card I'm posting today, is actually one I wanted to create last week to celebrate our wonderful Nathalie Kalbach and her amazing stamps she designed for Stampendous!  Unfortunately, I risked the "cooties" and the "cooties" did me in!  Needless to say, my card didn't get finished last week but I've completed it and I'm sharing it with you today, cootie free, of course!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Radiant Neon™ Pigment Ink Refills by Tsukineko in Electric Blue, Electric Pink and Electric Purple
Radiant Neon™ Pigment Ink Pads by Tsukineko in Electric Blue, Electric Pink and Electric Purple
Pink Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Blue Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

Drip refills onto Creative Palette and, using a brayer, spread ink.
Place paper down onto ink covered palette and rub with your hand (or brayer), lift paper and set aside to dry.
Ink stamps and stamp onto various pieces of paper previously inked on palette.
Trim stamped images to desired sizes.
Create an A2 card base with blue cardstock.
Adhere large background piece to card base.
Trim mats for stamped images from pink cardstock.
Adhere stamped images to mats and then adhere to card.
Add a few mini glue dots, cover with glitter, burnish glitter, tap off excess glitter.
