Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Glitter without the mess!

Hello Stampers! Do you remember the card below that I posted a few days ago? Have you ever crafted with glitter and found yourself covered in it? Or you have to leave to go run an errand and happen to peek in the rear-view mirror and notice that your make-up seems to sparkle?  I promised a tutorial on how to add glitter to a project that doesn't flake off. Keep scrolling for the tutorial:

You will need to following supplies:
  • Stamped image on cardstock
  • VersaMark Ink
  • Heat & Stick Powder
  • Heat Tool
  • Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter

Using the stamped image, turn your VersaMark Ink Pad upside-down and tap onto your cardstock piece. Cover the whole cardstock with ink:

Sprinkle your cardstock with Heat & Stick Powder:

Use your Heat Tool to melt the Heat and Stick Powder. Make sure your Dazzling Diamonds is close-by:

As soon as you can, after you melt the Heat & Stick Powder, sprinkle the cardstock piece with Dazzling Diamonds:

Turn on your Heat Tool again to set the Dazzling Diamonds and this is what it looks like:

Complete your card!
