A Glittery Hello Card with Imagine Crafts

Creating this Glittery Hello card was super easy and fun to do with Imagine Craft products. I love using glitter but always have a hard time finding the best way to make it stay on my projects. Well, I finally found the perfect way to make it stay. The Tear It! Tape is the perfect solution!

Difficulty - Easy

Time - 30 minutes

Imagine Crafts Materials Needed:
Fireworks Angel Pink
Memento Dye Ink Lilac Posies
Memento Dual Marker Tuxedo Black
Radiant Neon 4 Warm
Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle
Tear It! Tape ¼ inch wide
Craft Mat

Other Materials:
IndigoBlu Rubber Stamp Bubbles Background
WOW! Glitter Cotton Candy
Martha Stewart Glitter Onyx
Dear Lizzy Watercolor Word - Hello
Miscellaneous: White, Pink and Black Cardstock, Sequins


1. Randomly spray some Fireworks in Angel Pink onto a 4” x 5 ¼" piece of white cardstock.

2. Using a stamp and Memento Dye Ink in Lilac Posies stamp onto the white cardstock piece over the Fireworks spray.

3. Slide the Radiant Neon 4 Warm onto a craft mat leaving a color palette of ink on the mat. Using a paintbrush and water pick up some of the Radiant Neon inks and paint in areas of the stamp.

4. Tear a piece of the Tear It! Tape off and attach across the middle of the cardstock. Cut off extra pieces hanging off the edge so it is flush with the edge of the paper. Press down firmly to make sure it is attached well and then remove the backing.

5. Sprinkle black glitter over the tape strip, shake off excess glitter. Attach another strip of Tear It! Tape above the black glitter strip and repeat the process with pink glitter.

6. Outline and color in a few areas of the stamp with the Memento Dual Marker Tuxedo Black.

7. Spray the sentiment "Hello" die cut with Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle, adhere to the top of glitter strips. Layer the white cardstock piece onto some pink and then black cardstock and then add some sequins.

Thanksgiving Feast with Deflecto Crafts

Whether you do your Thanksgiving feast as a buffet style or a formal style, Deflecto Crafts has items to help you decorate your table. Just by adding some beautiful papers and stickers to them and then as soon as Thanksgiving is over all you have to do is remove the paper and stickers and redecorate them with Christmas theme papers and you are now ready for the next holiday.

For the silverware holder, I used the Deflecto Stackable Cube Organizer "X" Divider and attached a VersaGrip Sign Holder to hold a fun little sign I made.

For the napkin holder, I used one of the Acrylic Display Risers and used a 3" x 4" Mini Slanted Sign Holder to create my Happy Thanksgiving sign and the 1.5" x 2" Mini Slanted Sign Holders for my seating tags.
