There are lots of tutorials on using glitter, double sided adhesive and copics.  Here is one 
from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Super fun to do, using the double sided adhesive is a little challenging but just place the peeled off paper over part of the sticky paper when applying the flower stickers.

I cut a piece of the double sided adhesive tape, placed it on card stock the same size and the carefully applied the flower stickers.  Next I covered the entire area with silk micro fine glitter (you really need micro glitter to be able to color) and then colored the stickers using the copics.  It really makes a pretty glittery design when finished.

Elizabeth Crafts Flower Stickers
Elizabeth Craft 2 1/2" double sided adhesive tape

Really quick and easy probably less than ten minutes to make.  I used a left over scallop frame and added a little mounting tape behind it. Then added the black Palace Oval Frame and inserted the Leafy Sprig and Posies.  For a little bling I added the four pink rhinestones.

Garden Bird House

No card today but I just wanted to post this fun picture of a bird nest.  I purchased three of these wooden birdhouses years ago and never has a bird used them. I finally give up on even checking them when I walked by the area.  Last weekend I noticed a bunch of nesting materials in one of the the boxes.  The birds are long gone so I slid open the latch and look at all the nesting materials those birds stuffed inside that box.  It is even coming out of the bottom of the box.  Not sure what type of birds made the nest.

I really like shiny card stock but wow does it make taking a picture difficult.  I first embossed the background and then offset the Dee Distinctively - Border No 3 & Spellbinders Classic Ovals pieces to create a shadow effect.  Then added the Hollyhocks and Lilies.

Still raining, since October 1 2015 until today we have had 42 inches of rain.  We have now set an all time high.  Really I am so looking forward to some dry weather.

I am still playing with my cheap watercolor set, I painted the background using watercolor paper  my set and then die cut the pink and white oval frame and used mounting tape behind the white for a little dimension.  I added the wide tree and tiny pink flowers and dotted them with pink Viva Decor.  Then added the grass, ducks flower and bunny.

When I made the first flower I thought this would be a fun project for kids to make.  All you do is either punch out or die cut 4 or 5 colors of the same flower and then glue them together.  After the design was done it looked like a retro flower to me.

Materials:
Memory Box Norrland Flower (leaves and stem)

For today's design I wanted to create a silhouette which made creating it really easy.  I punched out the grass and die cut the little girl.  Then framed the design in a square pattern starting with the white card stock which is a 4" X 4" square.  The next pink frame is a 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" square and so forth.    

The tiny flower die is my go to flower because it is so easy to use and the flowers always come out great.  I just use the stylus and the pad and press down in the center of each flower to create a little dimension.

I recently purchased a cheap set of watercolors and thought I would try something different. I used Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper but I will need to buy some watercolor paper and try it again.  I took the brush and dipped it in water then used the red watercolor and splattered it on the paper.  I used several colors for the butterflies and once the paper dried I die cut them out.  I used mounting tape behind each butterfly and behind the splattered red piece.

Materials:
Watercolor kit
Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper
Poppy Stamps Delaney Butterfly & Cheviot Butterfly
Impression obsession - Easter Joy die
Mounting Tape
Pink rhinestones
