Stamping on Glitter

Hello stampers.

Today I have a card up on the Paper Crafts Connections blog showing how to stamp on glitter. Yes, it is possible! Be sure to head THERE to read a bit about how it is done.

Here is another idea using this technique, but with a different spin…

First, I covered white cardstock with a piece of Be Creative Tape Sheet (double sided adhesive). I then sprinkled on Warm Highlight Glitter Ritz Micro Fine Glitter and burnished it (rubbed well) with a bone folder. This presses the glitter in good, making it look like shiny velvet and also keeping it from rubbing off. (It really does work! Love this glitter – it is unique!) Because it is micro fine, it gets very smooth and subtle. Lovely.

I then stamped the new Paper Smooches fire image on top of the glitter with Jet Black Archival Ink and added coloring with Copic Markers. When using Copics on this glitter, I just kinda dab the tip to color and it blends quickly and easily when you add other colors. If you color back and forth too much it may bleed a bit. But if it does? No worries. Just “erase” the extra color with your colorless blender. You can also use Sharpies for this coloring, too.

Looks so cool in real life.

The background is the Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock – such a great subtle color that looks good as a backdrop for bold colors. And I embossed it with THIS great embossing folder.

Again, be sure to head HERE to the Paper Crafts blog for another glitter card idea. See you soon.
