*Add patterned paper strips and glitter cardstock strip to card base and adhere image piece on top.

Our challenge this month is a fun theme.





Products to use: Glitter tapes, Glitter Embossing powders, Glitter pens, Glitter powders, Sparkling Glitter Gems, Glitter pens,Glitter foam sheets etc. You can add as much glitter as you like to glam up your projects.


Card 1:


The first technique is one of the easiest and quickest. This is also a great way to showcase the larger, more elaborate sentiments.




  • Trim a card base and panel from white card stock.
  • Stamp the Special Mini stamp set with embossing ink on a small piece of white card stock. Heat emboss with black sparkle embossing powder.
  • Add glitter tape towards the top of the panel.
  • Pop up the glitter panel and the sentiment panel on foam tape.
  • Add a few sequins for some extra bling.

Card 2:


I love using metallic embossing powders on my projects for some subtle shine. And the Madhubani Borders stamp set is perfect for this technique.



  • Take a piece of black card stock and stamp the borders from the Madhubani Borders stamp set with embossing ink. Heat emboss with a variety of metallic embossing powders. 
  • Heat emboss the sentiment from the Let's Party stamp set on a separate strip with gold embossing powder.
  • Pop up both the panels at an angle on the black card base and trim.

Here is a closer look at the card.

Card 3:

Metallic inks are also a great way to add some interest to simple stamped cards. I used the Floral Fantasy stamp set which was the very first stamp by Mudra that I bought. And I still love it as much!


  • Take a piece of white card stock and stamp the base image with blue ink. Stamp the detail image from the Floral Fantasy stamp set with metallic gold ink.
  • Trim a mat from blue paper and emboss with an embossing folder.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a strip of the same blue paper and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Mount the layers on a white card base.
