Video: Make Your Own Glitter Cardstock with Embossing Glitter!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!  It’s Erica here on the blog, with glitter everywhere.  In today’s post I’m going to be playing with some new glitter powders and make my own glitter card stock for some word dies. You can hop on over to the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel if you want to see this in action. And yes, I realise I have already done this once this month, but these are more of the delicious new colours being released on the 25th!  First I took some spare bits of card stock. I did use Neenah #110 to make sure it wouldn’t turn into a glittery goo, as I was intending to saturate the card stock with the Embossing Pad and then cover it in the glitter powder.

Once I was happy with her size and visual details, I inked her with my Pentel Pocket Brush Pen.   You can watch ALICE come to life in our YouTube video. STEP 1 ~ I used my watercolour paints to assist in bringing our dear Alice to life. STEP 2 ~ With the use of my WOW! Embossing pen and the fab new WOW! Embossing Powders (which are being released on January 25, 2021) we make Alice sparkle and shine! I began with 'Minty', as it was a perfect accent for her dress & hair bow. STEP 3 ~ When it was time to move on to the next colour, I selected 'Earl Grey' along with Marion Emberson's 'Tropical' stamp & the WOW! Embossing Pad.  I used scrap pieces of printer paper to block off
