All That Glitters Is Not Gold!

Especially not at this time of year!  Is everybody ready?  Below is a list of the IO DT members and their Glitter ready cards for our "All That Glitters Is Not Gold" challenge, followed by our customer entries.

This beautiful entry comes from Deloris Thiede, at Stamping At The Lake.  She used Leigh Hannan's Bird Cages to create her beautiful sophisticated card.  You can see that for her metal she used Silver ink for her image, mounted it on Silver cardstock, added very pretty flowers with rhinestones, and then finishing the rest of the card.  Lovely, Deloris, and good luck in our drawing too!

This beautiful entry comes from Vicki Garrett, at Summer Tyme Studio.  She used Squinty With Mittens to create her beautiful and fun card.  What an adorable hat and snow too! Love the bow!  Squinty has such an adorable face!  Really fun and pretty embellishments, Vicki!!

This next entry comes from April Williams.  She chose Espresso for her image.  It can also be purchases as part of clear stamp set Smell The Coffee.  I hope when you click on the card you can see the work she did with alcohol inks on the copper.  It is just wonderful, April!  And look at those marshmallows.
