  10. You’ve created some beautiful cards here using some of my most favorite supplies from this great new release. Thanks so much for sharing your talents & giving me so many great ideas.

  11. Yes, here come all those gels and pastes that are in the drawer and not being used. What a great idea and so pretty.

  12. I love that you showed us more on how to use glitter paste, it is something I forget about but love the look. Thanks for reminding us.

  13. Love these glittery cards, Jennifer. My favourite is the Friend Silk card…beautiful! I only have one paste, Nuvo Gunmetal Grey so I’ll have to purchase one that is clear and iridescent to get the same effect. I put Press N’ Seal on the jar opening before putting the lid on and so far it hasn’t dried out. Great PPP release.

  14. The gels add so much sparkly goodness to these cards, thanks for the inspiration, I do have some that I haven’t touched in quite a while!

  20. Thanks, Jennifer! I, too, have gels and pastes sitting around because I wasn’t quite sure how to use them. Now I’m off to look through my cover plates so I can give these techniques a try. . . my stencil, too, because I love the silk look you achieved. I’m also really like the new birthday cover plate from PPP. Thanks for the inspiration!

  21. I love this beautiful, fun technique. I have a couple of glitter gels in my stash (I’ve had them a while — hope they’re not dried out!), and hope to give this a try soon.

  22. I just grabbed a few dies which should be arriving soon for me to play with!!
    Now I can try Jennifer’s new techniques with some old products!!
