Glitter embossing is a lovely technique you can easily achieve with Heat & Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter. Here's how!
"All that glitters is not gold"
Making your projects special with glitter embossing is only a step beyond ordinary heat embossing. All you need is Stampin' Up!'s Heat & Stick Powder, a Versamark or Craft Ink pad, and a heat gun. Oh and you need some glitter of course, and the cardstock you want to add your image to.
Here I used Dazzling Diamonds, also from Stampin' Up! to make a wedding image:
It's so hard to capture glimmer and shimmer on a stills camera, isn't it? If any of you know how to help me capture this type of thing better please say so!
Also, this image shows the glitter as being gold in colour. It is really more silver, which I think I captured better at the bottom of this page.
Anyway, on with the tutorial.
To make this effect, just go one step further in the heat embossing process. It's really that simple!
Now you should have a nicely glittered and embossed image that you can add to a handmade card.
Did you know you can change the colour of your Dazzling Diamonds a couple of different ways?
If you have not tried this technique before, I hope you will play with it now. If you do, please do share your project with me. I'd love to see what you make.
Do you make greeting cards? Please do share it with me.
Is this one a better image, or worse? Lol! Now I feel like an optometrist!
I think this one is more 'true to life' as the Heat 'n Stick powder with the Dazzling Diamonds creates more of a silver effect than the gold one shown above.
