Glitter Explosion Blog Hop

If you have arrived here from Pattern By Sher then you are in the right place! :-)
If you just came to OBX Stamping & Crafting to visit then please consider going to Yolie's and start at the beginning of the Glitter Explosion Blog Hop so you won't miss a single great project!

I have two projects for you today both very Glittery! The first one is in honor of Memorial Day, My Husband is retired from the US Coast Guard, so he is a Veteran and I am very proud of him and his service to our great country.
I bought this tray for $1 at Wal-Mart and I used glitter vinyl to embellish it. I created the
"God Bless the USA" from fonts on my computer and it is available for download over on the right hand side of the blog. I used silver glitter vinyl for the wording and the "white" dots. The dots are created using the basic shapes available in MTC and SCAL I used 1" circles and 1/2" circles, I cut 5 circles in the larger size and 5 circles of the smaller size in each of the three colors and placed them randomly. This tray is hand washable, I vinyled my mailbox over a year ago and it is holding up perfectly! (I did try to dishwasher a vinyled plate and the vinyl stayed but it started to "pick up" on the edges, so Hand wash!!) Here is a close up of the glitter vinyl.

My second project is a super cute card,

I used a svg from Blackleaf Studios' Flying High SVG and Graphics set and the background cloud paper is also from Blackleaf Studios. I used all glitter papers to cut out the airplane, the digi cloud paper and some yellow cardstock for the card base. The sentiment is from Joy's Life "You're So Punny" Stamp set. I really like this card, it is so bright and cheerful!

The next stop on your hop is Melin over at Paper Crafting World.
