Two More Ideas for Using Fairy Sugar Glitter Glues
by Anne Thompson

I'm not usually a glitter person but I am becoming one thanks to Memory Box and the new glitter paper pads and the Fairy Sugar glitter glues.  I've been trying out lots of ways to combine some of the 2020 Spring Collection products with the Fairy Sugars.  Here are a couple of ideas I've been playing with this month.



I started with a Sweet Corn notecard and some orange dot/striped paper from the COTTAGE STRIPES AND DOTS 6X6 paper pad PP1004.  I cut the paper 4 X 5.25 and then cut it half, taping down the dots on the left and flipping the paper over and adding the stripes on the right. 

I die cut the PRETTY BLOSSOM STEM 94422  using green and yellow glitter papers from the TWINKLING JEWEL GLITTER PAD GP1003.  I snipped off the yellow blossoms and used Glue Dots to secure them on top of the green ones.  I used a glue pen to anchor the stem on the center line between the two papers.

Then I got out the Fairy Sugar in Sour Apple Sparkle 40121 and Goldfinch 40118.   I added a line of the Sour Apple Sparkle beneath the flower for the ground and to anchor it, and I put tiny drops of Goldfinch Fairy Sugar on top of some of the dots on the dotted paper as well as in the blossom centers.

Idea:  Try adding dots of Fairy Sugar on top of dots on any dotted paper for a little extra sparkle.  Practice drawing lines with the Fairy Sugars to add details to striped papers or for grass/ground under die cut flowers.  Add dots of Fairy Sugar to flower centers.




I started with a Persimmon notecard and added a piece of paper cut 4 X 5.25 from the COTTAGE MEADOW 6X6 PAPER PAD PP1003 to the front.  I then added Fairy Sugar glitter glue to some of the flowers on the paper, smearing the drops with my finger to add sparkle to their centers.  I used Lemon Drop 40116 on the white flowers, Goldfinch 40118 on the orange ones, and Pansy 40114 on the pink ones.  I cut some blossoms from scrap pieces of orange and pink glitter papers using the Pretty Blossom Stem die.  I put the small one on top of the larger one using Glue Dots and then used foam dots to add them to the card front.  I added Fairy Sugar centers to them, Goldfinch on the orange one and Strawberry Ice 40109 on the two pink ones.

Inside I added double-sided bright orange paper from the Cottage Stripes and Dots paper pad, stripes side up on the left and dots side up on the right.  I had a strip of the flower paper left from the front which I placed on top of the dots and added more of the glitter glues to the flower centers.  When that was dry I attached a white cardstock square where I will write my message.  I cut out some CHERRY BLOSSOM BRANCHES 94434 from a glitter paper scrap, added Goldfinch Fairy Sugar centers, and put one of them on the message square.


Idea:  Try adding dots and dabs of Fairy Sugar to highlight images on printed papers.

I can't wait to see what you post on this month's Challenge.  I'm sure you have lots more ideas than I do for using these yummy Fairy Sugar glitter glues!

Happy Crafting!
