Penny Black Hedgehog - Stampin Up Crystal Effects

I made a few cards today. . .I'm so proud of myself!! I've been sort of slow on making cards the last few days because I lacked motivation and I've been so busy doing other things. So. . .to make a few cards really makes me feel I'm back to my old self.

I don't know if you can see it but the apples on this card is shiny. To create this shiny effect, I used Stampin' Up Crystal Effects. It's pretty much a glue that dries clear and give your images a dimensional or raised shiny appearnce to enhance your stamped images. I love using this medium to dress up my cards. Other brands that carry a similar dimensional glue is Inkidinkado "Glossy Accents", Aileene's "Paper Gloss", and Judikin's "Dazzling Diamonds".
