Next up, another card for my Birthday SAS that is tomorrow, January 30th! Here is another use of our fine glitter, but this time with Heat & Stick powder. There are some tricks to this technique which is why I'm sharing it with my gals. What I've learned is this:
- DON'T overheat the heat & stick (until just before it is completely melted and shiny)
- DON'T use an embossing buddy. Glitter wiped off more this way.
- DO heat once more, just briefly, once the glitter is on.
- Be Patient and not afraid to experiment!
So what do you think of these colors? You may have noticed that I like to be a little different, a bit unique, march to my own drummer... which doesn't always work for everyone. Believe me I hear it from my customers when I do a pink and brown Christmas card with no red or green in site! But I think they love me anyway (and I them).
The colors started as my first attempt at this week's DCBD challenge (Lovely Lilac, Bashful Blue, Baha Breeze & Pink Passion) but it kind of took a turn towards Lilac, Baha Breeze, Lavendar Lace and Kiwi Kiss!
Anyway, be sure to stop back tomorrow as I'll have my last 3 SAS cards featuring the Love You Much Bundle which will only be available through the end of the day tomorrow!
Thanks for visiting!
