Thinking of You Card & Stamping with Glue Technique

Hello blogging friends!  I hope you are all had a wonderful weekend!  Today, I have a card and another tutorial to share with you using the Stamping with Glue Technique with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue from the The Rubber Cafe`.

Here is the card that I designed using the Script Background stamp and Scrap Happy Sheer Glue along with a couple colors of You're So Fine Glitter to create the sparkling script on Bo Bunny pattern paper.   

To start I apply some of the Scrap Happy Sheer Glue to the Script Background using a makeup sponge.  I make a little puddle of glue on some scrap paper, dab the sponge into the glue and apply to the stamp.  If you have never done the Stamping with Glue technique you might want to try it on a scrap piece of paper a couple of time.  
You want a nice coat of glue, not too thick and clumpy because you won't get a clear image and not to thin because then your stamp might stick to the paper.  
note  Be sure to wash your stamp/s right away.  I just use some soap and warm water with a little scrub brush.  Here's a little tip--a tooth brush is great for scrubbing stamps--it has small softer bristles and can get in to all of the little spots on the stamps. ;-)  
Don't worry about your glue drying and not having enough time to apply the glitter.  The great thing about the Scrap Happy Sheer Glue is that it drys tacky so it is prefect for the Stamping with Glitter technique!  

This is what the pattern paper looked like after I stamped it with the glue.  Can you see the script pattern?  

Next, I applied some of the You're So Fine Glitter-Bronze Medal in a few areas.  I took a little pinch of glitter, sprinkled it on the paper and then used my fingers to rub it in.  Real technical--LOL!
When using  more then one color of glitter work in small sections, rub in the glitter and tap off the excess as you go.  This will keep the glitter from getting on all of the areas of glue.

Next I used You're So Fine Glitter-Princess Pink to apply the second layer of glitter.  

Here is a close up of the glittery script background on the pattern paper.  As a reminder you can click the images to enlarge them.

Here is a close up of the center of the card.  I used Fabulous Phrases and Daisy Splash to stamp the sentiment and flowers.    Then I used the Artisan X-Plorer and Petite Labels One Die D-Lite to cut/emboss the little label.  I added some Natural Crochet Lace Trim and a Sun Rose Seam Binding bow.  The butterfly I spritzed with Pssst! Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle and added Diva Pink Jellie Dots from The Rubber Cafe'.  I used my handy Rubber Cafe' -Stick "EM" Up Tool for perfect placement of the Jellie Dots.  It's a great little tool for picking up small embellishments.  
To finish off the card I added some ivory roses and a handmade stick pin.

So what do you think about the Stamping with Glue technique?  Is it something you would like to try or have you done this technique before?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
