Sweet Stamps- Shimmery ATC's

Happy Thursday!  I had the good fortune of meeting Stacey at the Tampa Stamp Fest this weekend, and was able to see her demo a sparkly technique- so just HAD to give it a go! I also stayed with the Sweet Stamps Pink/White plus one other color challenge for the Heart ATC.

 Sparkalicious!  I want to show you how this effect was achieved.

I used the Anti-static on my work surface. Apply the sticky tape to your ATC surface. I also used the Anti-static on the ATC stencil, then place it over the sticky side of the ATC.   Pour the Glitter over the top of the stencil, and use your finger to burnish it to the surface.
 This is what you will see when you remove the stencil.  Now, the white is sticky still, so apply glitter, Sugar beads or embossing powder to the surface and burnish that in as well.

 This background uses Cranberry wine Enamel EP, which I did add heat to, but you do not have to add heat.

This one has black EP and no heat.
On this one, I did add heat to melt the black EP- so it gives a shiny look to the EP.

Products I used from the Sweet Stamps Store are noted in my write-up over at Sweet Stamps HERE

Oh sparkly AND fun! And now I know who was in my bathroom on Wednesday - LOL! Seriously, I woke up to find my daugher's bathroom with silver glitter ALL over the floor and of course, no one knew how it got there _ LOL! Glad you had a fun time in FL! ♥

Both of these look great. Love this technique and I'm sure they are even more sparkly in person.

Like all your bling and sparkle! So pretty. I like working with glitter...but I manage to get it everywhere through the house, and I sparkle for a while
