Glitter Panel Cards

I've been having a great time this week being reminded, by Sue Madex, of a technique I tried many years ago.  I've always liked adding glitter to a card and preparing for Christmas is such a good time to indulge in glittery activities.  Beware this is one technique where you can't help but wear your dazzling diamonds for the rest of the day.

Glitter Panel Sample

To create the glitter panel you need the following: -

Whisper White or Very Vanilla Cardstock
Stamp Set of your choice
Heat and Stick Embossing Powder
Versamark Ink Pad
Dazzling Diamonds
Heat Tool

 - I stamped my very vanilla cardstock using Tree Trimming Stamp Set and Jet Black Stazon and Real Red Classic Ink.
 - Cover the entire cardstock square with versamark ink.  As versamark ink is pigment ink there is no chance of the classic ink smearing.
 - Liberally coat the versamark covered cardstock with Heat and Stick embossing powder and heat with heat tool.  Once the powder turns glossy stop heating if over heated it loses it's stickiness.
 - Cover the now sticky cardstock with dazzling diamonds and give it a quick blast with the heat tool to set the glue.
 - Embellish as you choose to finish off your card.

The supplies for my card are all Stampin' Up!®: -
 - Stamp Sets - Tree Trimmings, Occasional Greetings
 - Paper - Newsprint DSP, Basic Black and Very Vanilla Cardstock
 - Ink - Versamark, Jet Black Stazon, Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad
 - Punch - Designer Label
 - Accessories - Basic Black Satin Ribbon, HodgePodge Hardware, Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool, Stampin' Sponge, Paper Snips, Paper Cutter, Bone Folder, Snail Adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.
