VIDEO: Glitter Embossing Tips | Layer Stamps, Sentiments, & Tape

Hey guys, Amber here with quick and easy glitter embossing tips using layer stamps, small sentiment stamps, and double-sided tape. Have you seen the new Gemstone WOW! Trios? It's gorgeous and I'm excited to share it today!

YouTube Tutorial | Glitter Embossing Tips | Layer Stamps, Sentiments, & Tape

All the details, tips, and tricks are in the video. Watch here or in HD on YouTube.

WOW! Trios Gemstone

The new WOW! Trios Gemstone is spectacular and inspired by Tracy Scott. It includes Tanzanite, Aquamarine, and Peridot and enough sparkle to rival any faceted beauty.

Tip for Immediate Success with Glitter Embossing Powder

For immediate success with glitter embossing powders, emboss double-sided tape. I used 1/8 inch Scor-Tape in this example.  The double-sided tape holds onto the glitter like a vice-grip and embosses with clean lines.

Reminder Tips for Clean Glitter Embossing Results

Even fine and fancy sentiments like this one from Altenew Fancy Greetings can be embossed with glitter embossing powder. How do I do it cleanly?

Treat with anti-static powder tool. While this isn't new, it's important. WOW! embossing powders are anti-static, but that doesn't prevent the oils from hands and fingers from transferring to your cardstock.

Use the WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink Pad. I have two other brands of embossing ink and I get the best results with WOW!

Use a stamp positioner and double stamp your sentiment, but don't push too hard or it will distort the fine lines of the font.

Game-Changing Tips for Glitter Embossing

These glitter embossing tips were game-changers for me. When using glitter embossing powders, gently tap off the excess, don't flick the cardstock. See the significant difference between the flick vs. tap in my video. It seems like a small thing but it makes a world of difference.

Lastly, heat your glitter embossing powder from underneath the cardstock. Heating from the back will melt the embossing powder and embed the glitter. If you start heating from the front before the embossing powder has melted the glitter will blow away.

How to Layer Stamp with Glitter Embossing Powder

Now that you know all the tips to achieve fantastic results with glitter embossing, layer stamping should be a breeze!

In the cupcake above the Tanzanite, glitter frosting was embossed over a solid layer of Peridot glitter embossing powder. The same tips apply.

I treated the cardstock and peridot glitter with an anti-static powder tool, double stamped the detail frosting, shook the Tanzanite powder, sprinkled, and heated from underneath the cardstock. I was truly impressed with how cleanly the pink layer embossed!

I hope these glitter embossing tips inspire you to get your sparkly craft on! Thanks so much for stopping by. We'd love to see what you're creating! Please tag us @wowembossing and @notableink. Stay tuned for my next post, elegant CAS Glintz embossing cards.

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
