More fun with glitter paste and a stencil...

I am having such a good time playing with stencils and some Martha Stewart clear glitter paste. For this card, I first used three different colors of yellow ink and a stencil to add the design to my white panel.

Once that was done, I left the stencil in place and added a thin layer of the clear glitter paste. The only drawback in doing this is that the clear glitter paste that you are using absorbs some of the ink and takes on a yellow hue, so you really can't put any excess back into the jar. I just try to start with as little as possible and add a tiny bit more if need be.

When the glitter paste was dry, I mounted my panel onto a black mat and then onto my gold card base.

I love the dimension and sparkle it adds to my card.

My sentiment was cut with a die out of black foam board from Dollar Tree, so it is very dimensional, as well.

I left the inside of this card blank, as I will be using it to send a personal note to a family member.

It is a gorgeous day in Minneapolis today, so we will be going for a walk later on. In fact, our BIG plans are to walk a half-mile or so to a service station where a taco food truck parks. We're going to have "dinner out" from the food truck. How exciting is that? Bet you're all jealous. he he

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

So pretty, Cheryl! I don't have any of the glitter paste. Maybe I need some? :) We have not done any take out or food trucks or pick up yet. Still a little bit worried about it. But, maybe soon. We're actually thinking about pizza tomorrow night!

AT first I thought it was a stamp but then I read your post. What a great idea! I can see the glitter in the picture. I'm jealous of the Taco idea but it isn't something my husband will eat. We are in a VERY small town and have been ordering from the local bar once a week to help her stay in business.

Ooooooh that is so pretty Cheryl, bet all that sparkle is fabulous in real life!
Hope you enjoyed your Taco! One of our local restaurants started doing home deliveries so we ordered Sunday dinner in, oh my goodness, what a treat! You wouldn't have got tastier in a 5-star restaurant, nor a more appreciative audience than me and Greg!!

Ok - not you have inspired me to get out my stencils and glitter paste, just never think about it - but the cards are beautiful. And what fun a taco truck, we too are a smaller town and have only one food truck which parks around by the court house. Hubby and I have been having date lunches at Rally's every Friday.
