DIY Glitter Paste with WOW Sparkles

Hi WOW Paper Crafting Peeps, Jo here bringing to you a very exciting new technique.

Can you imagine making an array of your very own glitter paste?

Well today I show case a technique by using the WOW Sparkles range mixed with Ranger Texture Paste in a Transparent Gloss.

I started off with ink blending some Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart die cuts with Ranger Distress Oxide inks which what I will add my layer of glitter paste on top off.

I made sure the inked die cuts where thoroughly dry but heat setting with my heat gun.

I then moved on to making the paste. To pick up the paste from the jar I used a plastic spatula which is the tool of choice to also mix and combine the sparkles powder and paste.

The WOW crafting mat is really good to protect your surface as well as use as a mixing pallet.

Check out my You Tube on the mixing process.

For the card base I have used white top folding cardstock and black cardstock to die cut the Avery-Elle Horizontal Stripes background die. For the sentiments both hugs dies and add on prayers stampset I have adhered this down on the glitter hearts with either a liquid or foam adhesives.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card creations and would love to hear your thoughts on this technique.

Inspired By Stamping – Designer Stripes

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to today’s blog post. I think you all are getting to know me well enough to know that I love creating my own backgrounds and finding ways on what stamps to use to help stretch them that little bit further.

For the background I have placed all the Background Lines stampset on one huge acrylic block which I stamped twice on the white cardstock to cover the whole piece of cardstock. I blended each cardstock with the same colour ink that was used to stamp the stripes.

I also blended the inner circle stitched die cut & small tag the same shade of the distress inks.

Each dear & sentiment has been stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink which has been coloured in with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Each colours are listed below.
To finish off the card I have accented with enamel dots.
