Heartfelt Blooms, Thinking of You Card, Glitter Panel Stamping Technique, 2018 Sale-a-Bration

Honestly, I did put this stamp set away!  I actually walked over to the shelf and took it off to make this card!!! I really do love playing with this stamp though!!

I found a fun technique that used this stamp. It's called "Glitter Panels" and they are easy to do.  A bit messy, but easy.  

I took a 3-3/8" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped my image.  Here I used Calypso Coral ink.  The orientation of my card stock was so the 3-3/8" edge was on the top.  Then I covered the piece with VersaMark and then using a mixture of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Mix them in equal parts.  I used about a half a teaspoon of each and I did have some left.  You can adjust accordingly.

Once the piece was heat set you can add more where you see it needs it.  My problem areas were near the edges.  I also stamped the words and glittered them up too.  I die cut those using the oval die and the oval scallop. I die cut the oval scallop from the Calypso Coral piece that was used as a layer on the card front.

Next I cut the stamped and glittered flower in 1-1/8" strips.  I taped those strips to the upper part of a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic Black card stock.  Under that piece is the Calypso Coral piece.  And before those layers were taped the the Whisper White piece, I tied a ribbon around it and made a bow. I used Dimensionals to attach the oval words.

The base of the card is a folded sheet of Whisper White card stock that was cut 4-1/4" x 11".  This card opens at the bottom.

See, I told you it was a very easy technique to do but messy!!!  Especially if you need to add more of the mixture.  The VersaMark pad gets REALLY messy. I had to use packing tape to remove the sparkle from my pad.  And then I proceeded to do the wording and add more glitter to my pad!! UGH!!!  But I use the tape again and got it all off my pad.  

Isn't it pretty?  All sparkly!!  There are well over 100 techniques on my blog. Be sure to check some of them out.  You may find one you love.  Click here to be taken directly to the technique.
