Ultimate Glitter Technique Using Napkins!

Ohhhhh Happy Day!!  Why is it so happy, you might ask?  Well let me tell ya.  It's a HAPPY day when there's GLITTER in it, and today, my friends, I bring you LOTS of glitter!  If you've used Stampin' Up!'s Dazzling Diamonds, then you indeed know the meaning of "Happy".  If you have not used Stampin' Up!'s Dazzling Diamonds then you must run over to your computer and order some right now.  I've never used any glitter that compares to Dazzling Diamonds - it's simply gorgeous.

So on to today's fun project.  I learned of this amazing, wonderful, jaw-dropping technique from Connie Ingram, a fellow Stampin' Up! Sister, from her presentation at one of our Regional Events.  So here's a BIG THANK YOU to Connie! 

Update December 2018
