So Grateful Blog Hop

My project today reflects on my thankfulness for friends and family. I am so grateful for their support, encouragement, love and laughter.

Tips & Tricks

Corrugated Paper: I really love the texture of our Corrugated Paper. If you missed my previous project using the white Corrugated Paper, you can see it here.

Sparkly, Spattered Background: You might be wondering how I got such a spatter of background glitter onto the Corrugated Paper. For the Old Olive, I put a drop or two of Old Olive Reinker in the lid of an old button container, picked it up with the tip of an Aqua Painter and then flicked it onto the Corrugated Paper. Note to self: cover your workspace and remove all other projects from the immediate area. The glitter was flicked in a similar manner, but instead of refill ink, I mixed a drop or two of our Multipurpose Liquid Glue with a drop or two of water. Then I dipped the tip of the Aqua Painter into the thinned glue and flicked it. I scattered glitter on the front of the card, tapped off the excess, and ended up with a sparkly, spattered background.

Fine Tip Glue Pen: See that thin strip of glimmer paper? It used to be such a mess trying to glue or tape one of those to a project, but with our new Fine Tip Glue Pen, it’s no problem at all. When you get your new Fine Tip Glue Pen, don’t forget that it’s like a ketchup bottle–there’s that little paper under the cap that keeps it fresh. You’ll have to remove that before using your Glue Pen, or you’ll be frustrated squeezing like crazy and getting no results!

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! I think the texture of the corrugated paper is great for lots of different looks–from soft and sweet to rustic.


  1. Such a beautiful card! I keep forgetting we have that corrugated paper–I need to get some! Thanks for explaining the glitter splatter technique for those of us that didn’t get to convention! I love the subtle sparkle it creates! I’m so thankful for your friendship and encouragement! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  2. Deb, I love the look of your new blog – so great to see you here. I love this project – your arrangement of leaves is gorgeous, but the texture from the corrugated paper and the glitter makes this card super-appealing. I’m so happy you could hop along with this month’s InKing Royalty Hop – glad you did.


  3. Your card is absolutely beautiful! I love the glitter splashes. I have been wanting to try that since convention. I am so grateful that you called me 12 years ago and that our friendship and businesses have bloomed together into something so special and meaningful.
