Glitter-fied Shoes

Hello, my stamping friends!  It's Thursday, which means it's time for another CCEE Stampers' challenge.  I am the challenge hostess for the entire month of August.  For today's challenge, it's all about shoes.  You can get all the details about my challenge on the CCEE Stampers' blog, plus see all the MAHVELOUS creations my friends, Cindy, Joanne, Shirley, and Frances made.  I hope you'll join us!

When I was employed, I worked in an office, which meant I wore business attire.  I use to wear high heels with my suits, and a lot of times I would buy a pair of shoes that I loved in various colors.  That's what I used for my inspiration today:  shoes of every color!  I also had to gussy my shoes up by adding glitter.  This card is FULL of glitter and so is my stamp table and room!  ha!  ha! 

I stamped the shoes in their respective colors and then I used a two-way glue pen on them to adhere the glitter.  See those glittery brads?  They are faux brads!  Yep.  I wanted glitter brads to match my shoes, so I made my own with my 1/4" circle punch.  I punched each color three times and glued them together.  I applied Glossy Accents on top and then added the glitter.  Attached to my silver ribbon is a pewter flower I found in my stash, and I just had to glitter-fy it, too!  I sprayed Krylon Preserve It on top of my card to help reduce the amount of glitter that will flake off so that my recipient doesn't have glitter all over them, too.

Well, that's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by and your comments.  I really do appreciate them!

people who know me in my later years would never believe that this now Birkie girl used to wear spike heels to school every day for decades......I find it hard to believe myself. Now, the only spikes I have are stamps of spikes......and I am loving YOUR glitzy heels....beauteous for sure.....comfortable, probably not

fabulous sentiment, Bertie
