Glittered Dryer Sheet Technique

Not sure why I never posted this? It was the technique challenge I posted on Stampin Addicts a month ago.
It is especially nice with snowflake stamps in winter so you might want to wait to use it until then.

1. Stamp images in a variety of colors on your cardstock. Allow to dry for at least 10 minutes. (I don't recommend Red because it can smear when the glue stick hits it. Maybe you could heat it?)

2. Cover the cardstock with a thick coating of glue from a Stampin' Up! gluestick. (You can also use a Xyron, but if we can do it SU!, then let's.)

3. Press a well used (though not with dark clothes as they can sometimes fade or get dark lint on the dryer sheet) dryer sheet into the cardstock. (The glue will ooze through so be forewarned.) I used Bounce. You might want to ask anyone who has allergies to bring their own dryer sheet (unscented?) if the scent might be a problem.

4. Cover the cardstock with Dazzling Diamonds, and shake off the excess. (I think it might be a good idea to press the glitter into the cardstock at this point too.)
