A glittery hi

Fine Cosmo glitter... £12.95. Heat & Stick Powder... £3.25. Cat’s bottom covered in glitter... priceless.

Yes it was my glitter class on Monday night and I’ve only just managed to get rid of all (ok, most) of the glitter from the floor. Despite the tribulations of being in my house for the class, I think everyone had a good time.

This is one of the cards we made; another which uses Neutral cardstock – but you simply can’t beat Kraft. Do you know we now sell it in a single colour pack of 12x12? Very handy for scrapbooking but equally useful if you’re a huge fan of Kraft!

To create this glitter effect, take some chipboard and press into your Versamark pad. Sprinkle with Heat & Stick Powder (I keep mine in a plastic pot so can dip the chipboard in and out easily) then heat until the powder has melted. Sprinkle (or dip) with glitter – in this case it’s Fine Cosmo Celery for the letters and Fine Cosmo Turquoise for the heart. Then heat again to set.

The stamping is done with Versamark, too – it really is a useful pad to have around.

  1. Ha glittery cats bottoms - I must use that for my next trying not swear euphenism.

    Of course I love the kraft but it looks great with the glitter ;D

  2. ha ha very funny!! I don't use much (if any!) glitter and so my cat's bottom is safe!! (for the moment anyway - I may experiment with glitter one day!)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
