How to create your own “Glitter Paper” …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I’m back today to put a little “sparkle” in your day!  My card share today is an easy technique that I love to do when I need a quick card but want to jazz it up!  I will see how easy it is to make your own glitter paper.

I used the “Watercolor Wonder” Designer series paper, it is so pretty I just can’t keep my hands off this stuff!  Cut your designer paper to the size you want.  I decided to use it as my card front, so it measures 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Place this on a scrap piece of paper and dab the entire VersaMark Ink pad directly onto your designer paper.  You could brayer the VersaMark on, but this is much easier.

Now I move the designer paper onto another scrap piece of paper, or you can use an embossing powder tray, because you will now cover the entire piece with “Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder”…. tap off any excess powder.  Now grab your heat gun and emboss!  You now have a beautiful …. designer … glitter paper!

My greeting comes from the “Friendly Phrases” stamp set, and I stamped it the the Crisp Cantaloupe ink.  This is also the color I used for the base of my card.

I repeated the embossing steps on a scrap piece of designer paper (is there scrap designer paper?  Maybe not) … I then punched out a butterfly using the “Elegant Butterfly” punch.  To finish it off, I added a small string of Rhinestones to the butterfly.

The greeting and the butterfly were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed the card share today.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  And a “Happy Birthday” to my daughter Sarah today!
