Q&A Spring Bling with Glitter Options

 Q&A

Glitter Technique
Q: I really like glitter but I’m never sure about the best way to add it to my projects. Any suggestions?

A: Got to love glitter! But using the right adhesive for the job is important so that you get the best effect for your project without having glitter everywhere! We have several great adhesive options for glitter depending on the look you want to achieve.

Fast
If you are looking for fast glitter, the 2-Way Glue Pen (#100425) along with Dazzling Diamonds (#102023), Fine Galaxy (#114286), or Fine Supernova (#114287) Stampin’ Glitter will be your quickest drying option. The fastest glitter in the west, though, is Glimmer Paper. This heavy-weight paper is available in Silver (#124005) and Red (#121790). Cut strips or use punches to create the ultimate in glittery accents with no glue required!

Silver Glimmer PaperDazzling Diamonds Glitter

Detailed
When you want precise glitter placement, say when you are outlining an image or creating a row of small dots, you’ll love using Dazzling Details Glitter Glue. Dazzling Details is a bottle of super-fine glitter pre-mixed in a clear liquid glue. You simply squeeze it from the narrow tip of the bottle to add fine glittery lines, dots, highlights, or accents. Dazzling Details comes in the traditional iridescent glitter (#124117) or Cherry Cobbler (#125585). You will want to give projects with Dazzling details an hour or so to dry depending on how much you add. You can also use Dazzling Diamonds (#102023), Fine Galaxy (#114286), and Fine Supernova (#114287) Stampin’ Glitter with the 2-Way Glue Pen (#100425) or the fine tip of Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755) to add glitter details.

Large Areas
There are three great options for adding glitter to larger areas. Sticky Sheets (#114300) and Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#120805) are 12” x 12” sheets that are great for cutting out, punching, or die-cutting, and then adding glitter. Or you can heat emboss a stamped image or cover a piece of card stock covered with VersaMark ink (#102283) using Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#101930). Another option for adding glitter to larger areas is to use Heat & Stick Powder (#100625) and the Heat Tool (#100005). Simply stamp your image with VersaMark ink, apply Heat & Stick Powder, heat with the Heat Tool, add your glitter, and then heat again.

Glass Glitter
Glass Glitter is available in Champagne (#120997) and Silver (#120995). It is beautiful and chunky and has great texture. But, because of the size, it needs a strong glue to keep it where you want it. Sticky Strip (#104294), Sticky Sheets (#114300), Crystal Effects (#101055), and Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755) are all good options for adding Glass Glitter to projects. Just note that, since Glass Glitter is actually glass, you may not want to use it on projects for children or projects that will be handled a lot. I think Glass Glitter really shines on d├ęcor projects where it will actually age and develop a bit of tarnish over time - beautiful!

Be Dazzling
Now that you know some of the basics of glitter and adhesives, you are ready to create dazzling projects! Whether you are adding super-fine Dazzling Diamonds, bright Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, Glass Glitter, or heat embossed Iridescent Ice images, your projects will really shine. Have more questions? Contact me today, I’m always happy to help with your creative process!

Something Sweet Baby Bouquet


I was excited to attend my friends baby shower a couple of weeks ago, but I wasn't quite sure what to get her for a gift. I decided to play it safe and give her a gift card, but I wanted to dress it up a little.

I used the Something Sweet stamp set (118589) with the Circle Treat Cups (116802) to make a gift card holder. I added it to a bouquet of washcloth roses, in the appropriate color and voila! Sweet gift that mom can hang onto for a while and enjoy - even after she has used the gift card for the nescessities.
