Dazzling Diamonds

For this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge   I used one of my favorite products I haven't used in a while...Dazzling Diamonds.  Stampin Up's Dazzling Diamonds is a great glitter to add to any project.  It gives it a perfect iridescent glitter and sparkle.  You can use two way glitter, heat and stick powder, and even a Xyron machine.  To make the whole image sticky you can run the image upside down in the Xyron.  Join in the challenge fun at (
