Question Need a little help

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction~~My grandaughter's 2nd b'day is coming up and "Tea Party" is the theme~any good stamps for this? Also, cherry blossoms. I want to make a card with them for a friend who loves them. Finally, is there anyone in "Stamping Land" who can give me a good glue for glitter?? I just tried embossing paste, hoping that would stick, but alas! I like to put glitter on my envies when I send them, but so far cannot find something that sticks! TFH!

There is a little teapot with cup/saucer and spoon in the "Buttons, Bows, and Twinkletoes" set.

Use Stickles for glitter, it's a very fine glitter suspended in a clear glue base. The bottle has a fine tip for thin lines. Comes in lots of colors. You can find it at many craft stores and websites.
Here's a link to the manufacturer for info.

Papertrey ink has an ADORABLE tea stamp set... http://www.papertreyink.com/stamps_teafortwo.html

Also.. I would third stickles.. however if you really like lose glitter, I would suggest the red sticky strip (or terifically tacky tape) or the heat and stick embossing powder from SU.

Thanx so much for all your help! I have used Stickles, but like the look of loose glitter, I had no idea SU had such a thing as heat and stick embossing powder! I will check out PaperTreyInk this evening. I just ordered some adorable teacup brads from HOTP! Y'all are awesome! (I am from MA, practicing my Southern drawl!)

If you'd prefer your LSS than wait for next time you're doing an SU! order, look out for Stamp n Bond (made by Stampendous) which is the same kind of stuff. I confess that I'm not convinced that anything is going to keep loose glitter on an envelope through the mailing process though, lots of friction forces going on through all that machining and transportation!

I have found that 2-Way glue and SU fine glitter work well together.
The 2-Way glue comes is different size points. I like the results better than Stickles, but if I'm in a hurry, I do use Stickles.
