Glitter Heat and Stick

Some friends and I went to a quick and beautiful workshop taught up in St. George at our scrapbooking store, Dandylion Wishes.  (See them on Facebook).   The technique we learned was heat and stick on a delicate paper napkin that we heat embossed and applied microfine transparent glitter to.  On these cards I used SU's heat and stick powder, and SU microfine glitters.  The butterfly is cut from Spellbinders S4-395.  The silver Happy Birthday sentiment is a sticker.  Heat embossing and die cutting sentients for all the cards will complete them.  There is no picture that can capture the sparkle of these very glittery and delicate cards.  Fun technique.  Thank you Marcia (and Gretchen) for the fun. 

Tip:   I have been unsuccessful in adhereing ANYTHING to the surface of the glittered (and heat set) part of the card.  Recommend SEWING  bows or bradding elements  through before Scor-Taping the glittered piece to the cardbase and matt.

This snowman card is a mistake. (And not a "happy mistake!") We grabbed the glittery EMBOSSING POWDER instead of the glitter and the snowmen ended up in quite the blizzard! We got a chuckle out of the almost COVERED snowmen.  Here's my friend with this crazy card!

This "Cheers"  birthday card is for DH on his birthday.  Created with bubbles EF (debossed side), Spellbinders S2-123 Fancy Label Tags 4 set, and Blackberry Bliss paper, ribbons (SU).  The glitter is also by SU.


  1. Wow, what a great technique! Interesting that nothing sticks to the embossed surface. Thanks for the heads up on that....DH will love that card...

  2. I actually like the snowman card! :) They're all beautiful though!

  3. This is a wonderful project Priss. Thanks for the info and I love your cards.
