Add a little Glitter to your life

When making my Tim Holt February tag I realized I didn’t have any red glitter paper and I realized how the heck am I gong to make a red glitter heart?  I looked in my drawers and found my Dazzling Diamonds and a Real Red reinker – perfect!

So I thought I’d show you a step by step process so you can add different colored glitters to your projects.

1. Sprinkle some Dazzling Diamonds into a container and add a few drops of reinker to it depending on how dark or light you want your glitter to be. I used a popsicle stick to mix the color in since the reinker can stain! Dazzeling diamonds died

2. Versamark your piece.

3. Sprinkle Heat & Stick powder onto your project. heat and stick powder

4. Using your heat gun, melt the Heat & Stick powder. grungeboard heart versamarked

5. Sprinkle the colored Dazzling Diamonds onto your piece being sure to get full coverage.applying diamonds to heart

6. In order to have the Heat & Stick set you have to use your heat gun.  I always put my pieces on a tile I purchased at the hardware store to prevent my table pads from warping from the heat.  It gives a nice spot to put your pieces away from your projects.  Here’s the piece as I’m heating it.final heart

I think this opens up a whole new avenue for your projects when you can color the glitter any color you want!!  Give it a try.

Have a Magical Day!

      Its dryer foil tape. It will emboss, border punch and you can paint it. Inexpensive at Lowes. Plus you can use it get full silver coverage om chipboard.

A bit of this. A bit of that.
