VIDEO - Creating Sparkles Glitter Embellishments with Jenny

Hi Everyone!




Have you been having fun playing along with our Embellishments Challenge?   Did you know you can also use WOW! Sparkles glitter to create shiny glossy embellishments for your projects - I show you how in this video which you can check out over on the WOW! YouTube channel.



These are so sparkly in real life!  Here's how I created the cards.  For my first, I used an A2 panel of WOW! White cardstock, and overlaid the Altenew Milky Way stencil.  I did some easy quick ink blending with Catherine Pooler Stone Blue ink -  I chose this ink as it co-ordinates really well with the Twinkerbelle WOW! Sparkles.  I flipped the stencil to the other side of the panel and inked again. I wasn't super careful to get a perfect blend as I wanted a little fade here and there.



I then created my own glitter paste with the Twinkerbelle Sparkles by mixing it in with some transparent embossing paste using a palette knife.  I LOVE doing this - WOW! carries such a diverse range of glitters, some with amazing chunks of holographic material, and this really works with any of them.   I overlaid the stencil again (using the smaller stars, and lining them up over the top of the bigger stars) and smoothed over the DIY paste.  I then flipped it and did the same at the top, then set it aside to dry.



To create my stars, I first created my own Sparkles glitter cardstock.  You can do this by taking a scrap (or sheet) of cardstock, and adhering strong double sided adhesive to the entire piece.  I then peel off the release paper and (using a sheet of paper to catch the excess) sprinkle Sparkles all over it. I used Ice Pop Sparkles which is from the Melon Ice WOW! Trio.  You can rub it in with your finger or use a bone folder.  You can then tip the excess back in the pot and use a swiffer to clean up!

I die cut the DIY Sparkles cardstock with the My Favorite Things Inside & Out Stitched Stars dienamics - but you could use any star dies (or any shape!) you have in your stash.   I die cut them again three times from white cardstock and adhered them all together.

The secret is then to coat them with a layer of Crystal Glaze or Glossy Accents.  When it dries it magnifies the Sparkles and is just stunning. 

To finish, I stamped a sentiment from the Altenew Reason to Smile stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink directly onto the card panel and adhered my dried stars.


For my next card, I used the same DIY Sparkles paste and DIY Sparkles cardstock.  I took a panel of pale blue card stock, and smoothed over the remainder of my DIY paste using the Altenew Illusion Spiral stencil.

While it was drying, I created a sentiment embellishment using the My Favorite Things Hugs dienamics.  I did this in the exact same way as I created the stars!



I had intended to adhered the Hugs directly to the centre of my paste panel, however I thought it needed something else. I decided to heat embossed some blue colored vellum in WOW! Metallic Platinum using a flower from the Altenew Hennah Elements stamp set, and then fussy cut it out.  I adhered it to the back of the Hugs embellishment before adhering it (this hides the glue!)

I just love how these turned out!  Creating embellishments with WOW! Sparkles is my new favorite thing - why don't you go try it with your favorite dies?
