More Glitter can only be GOOD!

November 28, 2016 |  by  |  Cards, Copics  |  No Comments

One more new product from X-Press It for glittery goodness. Glitter Deco Tape is not new BUT how about wide tape? 1 inch wide to be exact. It tears easily by hand, is acid free, 10 meters per roll and available in gold and silver. 


I stepped away from the holiday creating to add some glitter to an image I created several years back and had yet to add to a card.

I edged the card base with the Glitter Deco Tape and the wide width made it so easy to wrap around all the edges. I laid the tape half on half off the edge of the paper:


Then trimmed the tape right to the corner, I used scissors to keep the line crisp, but if I was adding this tape to a scrapbook page or journal page I would tear it for a nice uneven edge.

Then I clipped the inner corner so that it will not crumple in the fold of the card.


I finished the card with some ribbon and attaching the flower. I’ll be honest I am not sure how I feel about the finished card. But I am a firm believer that completing the card and having it ready to mail off to a friend is the important part!


The Glitter Deco Tape is a fun addition to my crafting tool box. If you would like to see a little more or add some to your collection check it out at Imagination International, Inc.

Shiny new stuff YAY!

New products that glitter and shine from X-Press It! Just in time for the holidays and adding a little sparkle to your handcrafted gifts! The first product is a new line of Foil Deco Tape. It comes in a set of these 10 BEAUTIFUL colors and shines up even simple projects. It is narrow and flexible for easy application not to mention repositionable. There is 9 feet of tape per each roll and the tape adheres smoothly with no bubbles. Even the packaging is well though through, you can take the rolls off and then slide them all back on for easy storage!


I created these fun envelopes with a simple stamp from Essentials by Ellen. I colored this little guy on front with Copic Sketch markers. I fussy cut around him and then added him to my envelope, but FIRST I added three simple stripes of Foil Deco Tape. It just makes the image shine!


The foil is so clean and crisp! The address will look so cute riding between the stripes!

On the back of the envelope I added another little elf and “you’ve been elf’d” from the stamp set. 


This was fast and easy and the Deco Foil Tape added so much to the design. You can check out more about this new product at Imagination International, Inc.

Holiday Stamp #1

Happy Holidays to all my family and friends! Today and the next three Thursdays I have a holiday gift for those who love Copics and coloring. Today’s image is a pair of winter mittens. I created them fairly plane figuring that many would enjoy adding their own designs and patterns.


You can find the tutorial over at Pinterest Here

I colored mine very simply, but feel free to decorate! I would love to see your finished mittens. You can post them over at Copic In The Craft Room!


Happy Holidays Part 1!

Have a Happy Colorful Day!
