  1. I just love to add some shine or glitter to my project so much so that I don’t feel my craft work finished until I do so. Most frequently I add glossy accent for the glossy shine to some elements and like to use WOW glitter emboss powder as well.

  2. I love Elizabeth Crafts embossing powders and score tape to add shine! I try to find more ways to use it.

  3. I love the new foil technique but I have not had the chance to try it yet. I would have to say my favorite way to add glitter is through embossing or even through the perfect pearls. They both tend to add such a lovely outcome.

  4. I was never a “glitter girl”, so my usual method is to add Glossy Accents. I’ve got tons of Martha Stewart, and I’ve just purchased some foil sheets that were on clearance at Michaels. Gonna try and expand my horizons. Thx for everything you do for us!

  5. Great cards Jennifer!………..I love adding glitz and glitter to my cards. Wink of Stella Clear is one of my favorites for a soft glimmer of shine. Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin’ Up! is one of my favorite glitters. Thanks for a chance in the drawing!

  6. I mainly use stickles, but have many other supplies that I will be trying soon, thanks to all your videos.

  7. All that glitters and embossing powders. Thank you for the opportunity! Always learn from your videos.

  8. I really enjoyed the different ideas to add some bling to my cards…gave me some great ideas. As always thanks for sharing so many wonderful techniques.

  9. Excellent techniques and lesson. I’m glad you’re back safe and sound. The easiest way I add sparkle and shine is with Zig’s Wink of Stella or Ranger’s Stickles.

  10. Thanks for the informative video. Need to try that glitter technique. My favorite way to add shine right now is Wink of Stella, because it’s so simple. Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. I haven’t yet tried glitter which is strange as I love to wear lots of glitter. I think that I would start with embossing powder. I love your cards.

  12. What kind of adhesive do you use to temporarily adhere your die cuts when you are heat embossing them? I just LOVE the technique (Thanks so much!) but when I try to use this and heat emboss die cut words, the die cut doesn’t stay stuck when I’m heating it.

  13. I love embossing powders but hate to use them because they make such a mess. Now that I can try your tip using the swifter dust cloth I will certainly use it more often. Thanks for sharing.

    Linda D.
