All That Glitters

09-15 challenge closeup 2

The last couple days have been very busy and I haven't gotten any stamping done at all!    And although I don't do well stamping late at night, before I went to bed, I really wanted to try this technique of applying glitter with Versamark and Heat & Stick Powder that was today's SCS challenge.  It is messy, but the end results are awesome.  My photography just doesn't capture how really pretty this is!

The base is Whisper White, front panel is Baja Breeze stamped with Versamark, sprinkled with Heat & Stick powder and then heat set.  The backgrounder is Leaves #3 from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I applied some Fine Cosmo glitter  and heat set it again, then bushed off the excess.  I did the same for the snowflake, which is from SU's Best Wishes & More, except that I stamped it in Craft White.  I mounted it on a plain circle of Baja Breeze and attached it to the card with some retired silver cord.  Very simple but you need something simple with all that glitz! 

Now hopefully tomorrow I will get to play some more and will have some fun stuff to show you!


  1. Heat & Stick Powder - I don't believe I've heard about that yet. Is it the same as embossing powder?

    Loved your card - even if you made it late at night, your talent still comes shining through.
