Hello lovely crafter's, I hope you are all well?
So this week on the blog, I have gone full on bling! I love a bit - well a lot - of glitter, and thought it was a great opportunity how to create this twinkly/acetate technique with a Mother's day card. Let’s hope she's not reading ;). Thirsty Brush stamps are perfect for this technique because they are such a great size and if you haven't managed to collect all the dies yet, acetate is very forgiving if you want to do some fussy cutting. Also, this stamp set is one of my personal faves, so why not bling those blossoms up!
So, let's get started, you will need:
White and platinum embossing powder
Heat resistant acetate
6” x 6” card blank
Silver mirror card
Dries clear glue with a fine tip applicator
Your favourite colours of glitter - more the better!
Distress oxide inks - I used Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender, Tumbled Glass & Shabby Shutters for this gorgeous pastel look
Anti static bag
2 .Mat onto a piece of silver mirror card and adhere to your card blank
3. On a piece of heat resistant acetate stamp and heat emboss the large wreath from the Best Blossoms stamp set
4. On the reverse of the acetate, use the glue to fill in the open spaces of the stamped image. Sprinkle glitter on each area - Top tip: Start with the darkest colour first. Leave to dry overnight if possible (I like to batch make these, then I only get covered in glitter once!)
5. Use silicone glue to stick the acetate to the front of your card to finish
This technique looks really great on patterned paper as well or how about trying a glittery background? Let your imagination run wild!
Thank you for reading. See you next time and don’t forget to share you makes!
