Sweet Stamps- Embossing Folder+Die Cut(s)+ Stamp- use all three

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Embossing Folder+Die Cut(s)+ Stamp- use all three.
 Oh how I loved playing this week. *New* in the store is Microfine Transparent Glitter. This is a close up of the glittery flower:
 You can apply the glitter, color with Copics and even cut out die shapes with it- see:
 Here is how quick and easy it is to use the Adhesive tape and the Microfine Glitter:
1)Take your cardstock- lay it on your stamping surface.
2)Lay the 2" Super Sticky Adhesive Tape on the paper side by side with minimal gaps (see below)

3)Peel off the top layer of the tape to expose the sticky surface
4)Sprinkle the Microfine Transparent glitter onto the sticky surface
5)burnish the glitter onto the sticky surface to make sure the surface is covered well (I used my finger)
6)Stamp on the glitter and color it in with Copics
That is all there is to it- stamp and color and Oh- so pretty!

The first card is layered onto a Polished Stone background in blues. The 2nd card is made on a background called Colorwash Alcohol- both techniques from the Technique Junkies newsletter.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Hi Shelly, these are gorgeous and also I am mesmerized by your fab tutorial! I have never seen this technique before. I wonder how well it would work with promarkers. Definitely worth of a try because the effects are really amazing.
