Altered Tutorial by Kim Piggott

Look what Kim Piggott made for your viewing pleasures! I have always loved the sparkle she gives to her cards and asked her to make a tutorial. Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to share this with our lovely bloggers!

Hello! I would like to show you how I add extra sparkle to my cards.

Here is my card AFTER adding sparkle:

These are the steps I take to get my final result:

Before Distressing

I have distressed my images using the Tim Holtz distressing tool. I love this tool, it gives such fabulous results and is so quick and easy!

Then I added the Ranger Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink to the distressed edge.

I like to distress my flowers with distress ink too. Here is my white Prima flower before distressing:

Here is my flower after adding the vintage photo distress ink:

I now begin adding my sparkle. I use Ranger stickles glue.

So there you have it. I am now totally addicted to using stickles glitter glue. It is so easy and convenient to use and I really love the way it lifts my cards. I am in love with the stickles!


It is with great sadness that we announce the departure of our fabulous designer, Kim. She is taking time off to give child care to her grandbaby. We will miss you Kim and hope to see you soon!

Thank you heaps!
Heidi & the Simon Family

*The lovely stamp Kim used above is from House Mouse and is called Sleeping under the Flowers.

  10. This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I decided to find a good vendor of e-cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for normal cigarettes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
    "Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a variety of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented product offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
    I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

  11. It's so easy to choose high quality [url=]replica watches[/url] online: [url=]Rolex replica[/url], [url=]Breitling replica[/url], Chanel replica or any other watch from the widest variety of models and brands.
