View Full Version : Glitter, glitz and bling! multi-media Due date: August 27

Due Date: August 27
last postage date for non-Australians: August 13
I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! I normally allow 2 weeks when mailing my swaps to anywhere else in the world - I suggest that you do the same.
cards: 3 for 3
media: any and all
participants: 50


ALL CARDS MAILED SEPT 2ND


This is a swap for all that glitters and shines. I LOVE getting cards that have: glitter (well attached) or glitter glue, Twinkling H2Os, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, pearls and rhinestones, shiny embossing powder, Perfect pearl mists, shiny papers, metallic inks and foils, brads or eyelets, gel pens and. . . (you get the idea ;))

Due date:
Cards are to be in my hands by August 27. I will mail your return cards as soon as possible, but remember, it took 2 weeks to reach me so they will take 2 weeks to reach you.

Postage:
Australian players - please include a stamp equivalent to your postage
International players - a well hidden US$1 bill.
ALL players please include a LARGE address label (at least 2"x2") ,I will provide envelopes and Australian postage for international players.



1. Do your best work - I plan to swap like-for-like, as much as I can.

2。Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards (so you can get fun rep points) and on the back of your mailing envelope. I am running a few swaps and do not want to put you with the wrong returns.

3. Please mail early to allow time to reach Australia.

4. An extra card for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated but is not required.

5. Embellishments are fine. The completed card needs to fit into standard pockets and the embellishments need to be securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping. If it is too bulky it is more than likely that the card may not reach me - either because the envelope has been torn and the card lost, or it is too heavy.

6. Have fun!!

7. I will give iTrader feedback when I receive your cards, and will also update this post showing that your cards have arrived. In return I encourage you to give iTrader to me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points for the artists whose cards you receive. After all, knowing where your cards went is half the fun. (I think)

Is a Global US stamp okay, or do you have to have a $1.00 bill?
...I would prefer not to send cash through the mail.

heidiwork
06-21-2016, 05:57 PM
rapgardenpainter I asked my P.O. if I could send a US global stamp for a return from a foreign country and they said nope...it has to originate in the US in order to use it. I tried too!

ThouArtDelyrias
06-21-2016, 09:49 PM
I must say that I am soooo excited about these cards!!! I am having sooo much fun! I truly have been enjoying the process and playing around, pulling out papers and items that I haven't used in a long time!!! I am so pleased with the two that I have completed and enjoying working on the two that I am still creating. This swap was a GREAT idea!!!!:rolleyes:

Donnacr

welcome ErsatzEpiphany (can there be too much sparkle on a card?! Bring it on!) and rapgardenpainter

A Global US stamp is fine by me as I can then send it as postage for the next US swap that I am in (of which there are many). It wouldn't work as well with me sending you an Australian stamp as there are not that many Hosts down here.
Any country will only accept its own stamps as legal tender for postage (I have some great stamps gained as leftovers from living in various places). I find the different values required by different countries to be interesting - they are all doing the same job. . .

ThouArtDelyrias - don't keep us in suspense. . . I need to SEE these wonderful cards! Glad that you are having so much fun with them.

Have a look in my Gallery - my 4th card for the Washi tape swap is made with some gold embellished tape that I couldn't resist on my last shopping trip. I toned it down for that swap, I wonder how mad I can get when there are no restraints as in THIS swap?

heidiwork
06-22-2016, 10:01 AM
Oh that's a great idea donnacr I hadn't thought about sending you a global forever that you could use as your return postage from a swap originating in the us! It's all becoming clear to me now lol. I will do that for this swap.

ThouArtDelyrias
06-27-2016, 03:17 AM
OH BOY!!! :jiggy: These were fun and I LOVE making anything that looks shiny and sparkly!!! The scan is not great because they have some dimension to them...The black one is one of my favorite techniques!
cover card with super sticky double sided tape, lay a piece of lace down on top. put black glitter on and rub in then pull the lace off and do the same with white glitter. It looks just like the lace but in glitter form!
the other cards have a glitter spray on them that I LOVE!!! I get it from Crafters Companion and it is the BEST!!!
Hope these are ok! :jiggy:

heidiwork
06-27-2016, 09:27 AM
Ooohhhh gorgeous TAD!! I didn't know that technique with the lace love that idea!

Thanks for the double sided tape idea. Going to do some glitter fun now. yippy

Donnacr
06-27-2016, 06:36 PM
Those cards are JUST what the Host ordered!! Gorgeous creations and did I see a glitter shaker at the bottom of your 'Life is hard' card?

Super sticky double sided tape is good for filling in die cuts too - that is how I made this butterfly (I used plain paper to cover the parts that I didn't want a particular colour as I sprinkled the fine glitter)

pennydoodles - they are more than okay - they are fantastic!! I love the way that you have used the positive and negative shapes on your 2nd and 3rd cards. Have you used a metal sheet or is it just metal finish card?

pennydoodles
06-28-2016, 06:45 PM
Oh thanks Donnacr I didn't see this till now. I used a sheet of metalic gift wrapping paper. I love recycling old gift bags, gift wrapping stuff, old table clothes, etc. The paper is really thin. there are some sticky rhinestones but they are tiny and hard to see.

Donnacr
06-28-2016, 07:20 PM
Do you mean on the 'fingers' on the 3rd card? I thought they looked great.

06-28-2016, 08:16 PM
the finger shape silver is an old metallic gift bag. it's like it's all sorts of colors when you move it.

Saw this t-shirt the other day with the text: 'I eat GLITTER for breakfast'

I want to play. Someone gave me glitter as a gift. I really thought, WHY? because I really dont use glitter too much. I could have returned it to amazon, but thought I should just find a way to use it in my art.

So yeppers, I want in on this. I might not even use the glitter. I have shinny paper that I love and want to use.

Please stand by for the shiny muse to arrive and create some art.

Went to our local (1,5 hour drive away though) "black market/bazaar"
Found this awesome Chinese shop with the most wonderfull sparkly ribbon with color variation lengthwise... LOVE it !!
Ofc I had to have me some so I bought a blue and green one which reminds me of the colors of the sea, a gold and red one which is like fire, a pretty purple one and one with velvet and sequence on them.... Soooo pretty and only 1 euro for 2,5 meters.
Well pleased with this trip :) we took the trip for a late fathers day outing, cause I didn't know what to get my dad, so I said, you can pick anything you like. He picked an Indian lunch which he enjoyed very much :)
We had fun :)

Donnacr
07-03-2016, 07:03 PM
welcome CastleQueen5 - NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH GLITTER?!? :shocked::swoon: Have fun exploring its uses.:yes:

Daphne75 - those ribbons sound gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you make with them (AND Dad got something he wanted too - win/win!)

Donnacr
07-03-2016, 07:05 PM
Just a quick plug - if you find that you are on a roll with all your glittery things, or find that you make too many cards - have a look at my July PAT (just click on my signature link).
I have continued the shiny theme there and would love to see you join me again

CastleQueen5
07-03-2016, 09:03 PM
I have made that lace technique eons ago. I really have forgotten how to do that technique. I am sure I could google it. It seems like so many people shun glitter that I have not been using it much.

When my friend asked if I liked glitter (for a gift) I thought she meant do I like glittery things. Which I do. She paid $10 for this set of glitters on amazon. I thought that maybe the glitter muse was knocking on my door and I better answer. For that reason I didnt return the set of loose glitter.

I also really like glitter glue (can you say Dollar store) and stickles.

today I was inundated with mail and cards for this swap were among them. I received cards from: pennydoodles, rapgardenpainter, londonont1 and tellurien.

The returns for this swap are going to be amazing! Thanks to all who have sent me a Host card - I know it is just a bribe so that I don't run off with ALL these gorgeous cards, but they are always treasured and appreciated.

Unfortunately it is looking as though the time for mail to get to me is stretching closer to 3 weeks than to the 2 I advised you to allow. So, if you are International (and that is most of you) I would recommend that you try to get your cards in the mail soon.

I like glitter, but not so much that it stays for days. May I be selective with my glitz? For example, an outline or smidgen of glitter gel pen here and there?

Donnacr
08-08-2016, 09:31 PM
redwheelbarrow - I agree with you - I don't like glitter that stays with me for days either so selective, well stuck down glitter is definitely the go. I find that Stickles brand and other glitter glues work well for not shedding everywhere but still giving that wonderful look of glitter and glitz.
The idea of this swap is not to be too subtle with your glitz but not to have me wearing it either. :yes:

cinlan - not in today's mail but I will tell you as soon as they arrive

Daphne75 - sorry for the delay but your cards arrived just as I was leaving to catch a plane to spend the weekend with my grandson for his 2nd birthday - thanks for all the extras
Dreamwood's butterfly - your cards arrived in today's mail but I haven't had a chance to open them yet. I will give iTrader when I return from a friend's birthday lunch.

Yes, I apologize now to whomever gets mine.... first time working with glitter and I have no clue how to get it to stick better.....

PS - I am still waking up looking like a fairy sprinkled me while I slept

Donnacr
08-09-2016, 05:30 AM
tellurien - don't worry too much, I think that I am covered in most of the glitter that came loose in your cards' travels. :D
I have found that you treat glitter very much like embossing powder, except instead of the wet ink used for embossing powder you use wet glue. Cover the area you want to glitter with a decent amount of glue, sprinkle liberally with glitter then, using a scrap piece of paper, press firmly all over the area that you glittered. Turn the card over and, again over a scrap piece of paper, tap sharply to dislodge all glitter not stuck firmly to glue (this excess glitter can now be returned to its container). If you find that there are some bare patches add more glue and repeat the process.

Or you can use glitter glue like Stickles.

Does anyone else have a different way of avoiding the glitter explosion?

nancyjb
08-09-2016, 07:02 PM
That's pretty much how I stick my glitter too. Stamping Up has a Heat and Stick powder that really makes it so nothing flakes off and I love my Stickles too! But then I also don't mind glitter all over the place either!
Donna, can you PM your address to me? I didn't save it somehow. I'll get my cards out by the 13th!

nancyjb - address sent

heidiwork - sorry you have to go but thanks for telling me

Barkesm - I can't wait to see those cards in real life - they look amazing! I love the flourish swan in your 3rd card - is it a die cut?

I dreamt about glitter last night... I was at work and one of my colleagues came to ask me something. Her whole face covered with a sparkly white/yellow glitter. I said: oh! I love your glitter! And she said thank you, as if it was the most common thing, like regular make up. I remember not finding it weird myself, just beautiful....

That is fantastic! There should be more glitter in the world as it IS beautiful! :D :yes:

ersatz epiphany - your wonderful cards have arrived (they are modelled on Pacman, aren't they?). I love all the different ways that you have added glitter and glitz AND bling!!

I really love the envelope you sent everything in as I am thinking of making my next swap about using the security linings of envelopes and I have never seen a pattern like yours. Once you start looking it is amazing how many different patterns and colours are used as security linings - start collecting now!

quick reminder - ALL CARDS should be in the mail NOW if they are to reach me by the due date.


If you need my address please send me a PM as I check those every day, whereas I don't check the thread every day.

My letter box was very glittery today - 2 envelopes for my shiny PAT and 4 for this swap. Cards received from: catb, cinlan, crafty3790 and Rainey day.

I know that 1 more envelope is in the mail to me but ALL cards should be on their way. I don't like giving neutral iTraders but it is not fair to those whose cards were mailed on time.
If you need to withdraw I will be sorry to see you go but that is fine, just tell me.

2 sparkly envelopes arrived for this swap today from: Barkesm and nancyjb.

I have sent PMs to Meborn and SueStultz (the only people whose cards I do not have) but neither of them have been on the site since the end of July so I am not going to hold my breath.
If they have not replied by Monday I will swap the cards and mail them on Tuesday. You will LOVE your returns!!
I have to keep telling myself: I CAN'T keep them all. . .I CAN'T keep them all. . . I CAN'T keep them all. . .

I am very sorry for the delay in mailing your returns but I have been sick as a dog for the last week and unable to leave the house.
You should be very pleased with your returns which were mailed on Friday, Sept 2, by my husband.

More returns have found their way home! Don't forget to leave iTrader for me and rep points for those people whose cards you have received.

I find the easiest way is: within the swap thread, go to the very top of any page and click on 'Search this thread', then choose 'Advanced search' (or you will only be given posts where you mentioned the person). Enter the person's name and you will be given a list of all that person's posts in that thread.
