Funky Posy Center

Today my big find is one of our older stamps, (B-647) Poinsettia Center. It was originally added to our collection to be a center to our Poinsettia Toppers if someone wanted to make a card with the Poinsettias instead of a Topper. Anyway.... I found this stamp to be a funky, simple alternative to the elegant centers of the Posies (though I love working with those as well).

Stamp and emboss the center on a colored card stock that would make a good complementary center (I used gold). Drop a small mound of Glossy Accents on each little circle of the Poisettia Center and sprinkle lightly with some glitter. Let dry. You can repeat this if you want the centers to 'pop' more.

Stamps Used: Oval Posy Lg (G-1022), Pointed Posy Lg (E-1042) , Oval Posy Med (E-1023) , Pointed Posy Med (E-1043) , Poinsettia Center (B-647) , Tiny Happy Birthday (AA-839) , Busy Bee Lg (B-82) , Busy Bee Sm (A-83)

Discovering Gala Glitz

I recently discoverd Gala Glitz by Art Glitter! This is a fun product. It comes in 12 colors and it is a blend of various Art Glitter products (glitter, beads, glass shards) that produces a fun, full coating! It can really turn your creation into an elegant work of art.
I've had this idea for making pins with the Posies on my mind for a while, and I finally got to work on it. I only had brown to play with at the time but we have sinced ordered all 12 colors to carry online. I can't wait to play with all the colors!
