Glitter decor

The current challenge over at The Paper Girls is to use Glitter! As a mom of 3 boys I don't get to do that often enough!
 
My little niece is decorating her room in pink, white, and black so I thought I would make her some 3-D letters in her initials to decorate her room.

I used this 3-D letter svg file from svgcuts.com to cut the letters out of cardstock.
 
I added some black and white paper, and then a layer of pink glitter paper!

I added some black rolled flowers and a bow to the T and a fabric flower to the R.

 
These are so fun and {almost} easy to make. If you make any of these (and I highly recommend you do) please watch the assembly video. And have lots of quick-drying liquid glue handy. Some letters have way more pieces than others and can be a bit tricky. I used this last year to make all the letters in "Merry Christmas" for my mantel. Talk about time-consuming! But it was well worth it.
 
What would you make with these files? I want to make more seasonal words for my mantel. My sad little mantel needs help. I should do this soon.

happy birthday!

These little beauties were made with the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for July.
 I kept them nice and simple. Stamped the background and then added the cupcakes. The cupcakes took a little time. It is a 4-step process to stamp these things. See stamp here.
I just fussy-cut them and added them with foam adhesive.
Another color variation:
 I made about a dozen of these to have on hand. I thought they would work great for an adult or a kid's birthday.

Growing up is optional

Here are my last 2 cards for the Itty Bitty a Day challenge at the Unity {Show & Tell} facebook group.
 
I used Numbers, Etc to stamp the background for this card and added lots of washi strips.
 
This sentiment is from SP & Company. So awesome.
And I added a banner-shaped Epiphany Crafts epoxy.
 (this card is listed in  my shop)
 
This card forced me to use another uninked stamp called You're a real fun-gi. I can't believe I've had it so long and hadn't use it!
I simply watercolored the mushroom. So quick and easy.
