Mixed Media ATC Tags

Hi Y'all,
Today I wanted to share with you my most recent ScraPerfect Design Team Project.  In making these Artist Trading Cards, was able to put them together pretty fast with the help of my ScraPerfect stash.  I will go into some detail of what I used and how I used these items in my project.  For gluing all my paper, chipboard and wood, flower, grass, glitter and lace embellishements using Best Glue Ever.  I always use it sparingly. A little goes a long way, trust me :)  When it came to using my pearl flatbacks I was able to lift them easily with Embellie Gellie. Using the Embelli Gellie I am able to pick up tiny pearls with ease.  Before I do any stamping or glitter effects I use my Perfect Crafting Pouch.  The Pouches special powder gives inks a more clear and precise stamp and for the glitter this little Pouch will become your best friend. I swipe the entire card once and then apply glue, then glitter my heart away. Once I am finished, I tap off the excess and there is no glitter where I don't want it to be. It stays only in the area where I applied my glue. Isn't that amazing?? I know I hate it when glitter gets out of control.  Now I just need Amy to come up with a giant pouch for my floors in my craft room so that the glitter doesn't stick there either, lol.  I really enjoyed making these ATC Cards for my swap partner Renae in Mini Album Swaps and more. :)
I hope you will find the time to watch my video below.  This video goes into a little more detail of how I made my cards and how I used my products to make this a super fast and easy project.
Thank you! ~ Kimmy
