|Ritz Glitter Class card|
Today's card share is a class sample made in the Ritz Glitter class I took with a stamp friend on Friday evening. Oh what fun did we have at
Scrapbook Creations in Spartanburg, SC, with the very talented & very patient Anita as our teacher. As you may -or may not- remember, I've have this class before, but I always learn something new - or refresh something I've forgotten. Happens a lot. LOL. Anyway, this sample is the reason I took the first class some time ago. DH saw the sample in the store and said "This is beautiful...you need to take this class", so I did. In the other Ritz Glitter classes I've taken, we've made many different cards using different aspects of the Ritz techniques. Anita had us do this sample again as one of our several Friday night class projects. She said it is the most requested of the projects, and I understand why. It's my favorite of all the things I've done in these classes. Ok, here's the specs:
Sookwang tape on lightweight c/stock
Ritz Glitter - remove backing from Sookwang on the c/stock, dip piece in Ritz cool white highlight. Brush off excess glitter. Then burnish well, becomes like velvet, won't fall off.
Elizabeth Craft Outline Stickers - holly. Place carefully on the white glitter, tap down well.
Copics of your choice to color holly leaves. Touch copic nib lightly to the glittered surface to shade; use blender pen to pull color towards holly leaf tip.
Elizabeth Craft Jewels for the holly (although I colored underneath my jewels with a red copic as well)
Brown copic for leaf branch.
Holly piece adhered to dark brown c/stock
Dark Green Bazzill textured card base
Gold Shimmerz sheet for bottom trim, after having been embossed with a Provo folder. We had several from which to choose, & I don't know the name of this one.
Gold trim adhered to c/base, holly piece adhered to card front.
There are lots of Youtubes available on this technique, so if it is of interest to you, search on Ritz Glitter. A very fun technique that gets awesome results. Hope you enjoyed this share, and as always, thanks so much for stopping to visit. Have a Blessed afternoon.
