I’m talking about Art Glitter and Globecraft Memories. And, it just so happens I’m on each of their design teams so how much fun is that!
For this cross-promotion I almost made another ornament. I love how quick and easy they are to make and they just mesmerize me. I love the way the light shines through the glitter shards. But, I decided to put some extra effort into it and try my hand at another Globecraft Memories Easel Greetings.
There’s really nothing fancy about these greetings. They come five to a pack for under $5 and they’re white. That’s pretty much what I like about them. They’re plain so I can paint, spritz, ink or cover with pretty paper, they stand on their own, so my recipient can put it on display, and they fit into a standard-size A2 envelope (unless you get a little heavy-handed like I tend to do!).
On this Easel Greetings I actually incorporated Xyron as well. I ran my corrugated heart (yes, I used it again) through the Xyron 2.5″ Create-a-Sticker and rubbed away part of the adhesive before coating it in Art Glitter and tapping the excess off. Remember the faux lace technique from May? Well, rather than use a tape runner I discovered the technique works just as well with the Xyron. It gives it a roughed-up appearance which I tend to like.
That adorable birdcage on the card front is also from Globecraft Memories. It’s from the Piccolo Vintage Bird Cage Charms. Hop on over to Art Glitter’s blog and you’ll see the steps involved to make this card yourself. While you’re there, check out the posts from the rest of the team. There are some adorable and creative projects!
I’ve been busy working on projects this weekend and just wanted to take a minute and share this little Halloween Boo Boo ATC with you that I made with Globecraft Memories products. The clip art is from Red Lead Paperworks (a free download) and the ATC is constructed on an ATC-size Globecraft Memories Card Decor punch-out.
It’s my first ATC that I can remember ever making. I’ve avoided them like the plague because of the smaller dimension but actually enjoyed creating it and watching it come together very much!
For the most part I used Globecraft Memories Glastique for the adhesive, sealer and dimensional finish along with the company’s new Cool-Set Enameling Gels. You can find complete instructions in a tutorial on the Globecraft Memories Blog and you can shop for the Globecraft products right from my blog if you cannot find them locally (just click the Globecraft Memories ‘shop’ button on the sidebar).
Products I used:
Piccolo Card Decor Set #5
Piccolo Card Decor Set #6
Glossy Glastique (adhesive, sealer and dimensional finish)
Mars Black Piccolo Cool-Set Enameling Gel
Cobalt Turquoise Cool-Set Enameling Gel
Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black Paint Dabber
Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink
It really isn’t that hard to work on the smaller surface. I just found that I had to edit the embellishments down so I wouldn’t detract from that gorgeous face and those haunting little goblins! This could also be used as a knob hangar for a door, cupboard or window by adding ribbon or wire to the top for hanging. It would also work well as an embellishment on a scrapbook page.
