Glitter Heart Design... and what might this be? Well, it's a new blog dedicated to handmade cards and papercrafting. Some people may know that I run my own handmade soap company, http://www.iamhandmade.com and know that I simply adore making soap, love fragrances, colour and glitter. Because my ethos is everything handmade, I started to get interested in papercrafting because I make all my own packaging for my soaps. I use a LOT of card doing this and, well those who are papercrafters will understand that once you start buying a lot of card, it's a slippery slope into cutters and scorers and glue and inks and stamps and ..... glitter! My glitter of glitter is nothing new, I am a magpie at heart .. a glitter magpie if you will... I am attracted to great scents, fun colours and anything shiny and new. Hence glitter heart, because, at heart, I'm a glitter girl!
And so Glitter Heart Designs was born. This will be my brand for card making and other papercrafting. And to start us off on what I hope will become a happy and successful blog, here are some images from very recently made Valentine's cards.
It was the first time I'd used embossing paste or my stencils so I was pretty happy it worked out. I love the glitter on them but the pink didn't seem to hold as well as the red for some reason. Oh I used some Glossy Accents on the birds glasses... I love the shine it gives (glitter and shine, oh boy!).
I hope you like the first look at my cards... I'm pretty much starting out on this and learning as I go (as I have done with soaping) and I hope I can achieve the designs of some of the card markers I watch on You Tube all the time.
Hope you like, would love to hear back from you!
