Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Glitter Paint Embellishments

Hello crafters! Thanks for stopping by today for my newest Studio Monday video! This week I wanted to share a technique I am calling “glitter paint embellishments”. If you love glitter without the extreme mess, this post is for you!

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

I’ll be making use of Hero Art’s Sparkle embossing powder for the glitter. Since the glitter is in the embossing powder, you eliminate the mess of loose glitter. While I love the look of loose glitters, sometimes I want something more simpler, and this is where embossing powder glitter shines!

But I’m going to be stepping up the glitter embossing powder and pair it with Dina Wakley heavy body acrylic paints. By pairing the two together I can create a faux enamel effect that looks fabulous. It’s also extremely easy and doesn’t require any dry time… how cool is that?????

You can see the fabulous dimension and glitter you get with this technique…

The globe image you see in all these cards – plus the sentiments – are from another one of my favorite Hero Arts products. This is the You Are Loved stamp set; a collection of wonderful and uplifting sentiments of love and encouragement. Since getting this set when it first was released a few months ago, I’ve wanted to use the little globe. This card turned out to be a perfect use of the image, along with some of the hearts also included in the set.

As you can see, I ended up with a total of four cards because they were so fun and so easy to make! I hope you will be checking out the video below to see the technique in action! Thanks for stoping by and spending time with me today… be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new video tutorial from me!

  1. I love the dark navy blue background on top of yellow card stock. It really helps the card to stand out.

  2. Nice cards, cool effect! You should also try using embossing powder with gel medium and gently heat it when completely dry. Super cool effect.

  3. What a sweet set of cards! Love how the colored globe pops against that tone on tone background!

  4. Really like that card! What you did with the background and the glitter paint, too. When I see that stamp set, I’m not particularly attracted to it, but when I see what people do with it, I might “break down” and buy it!

  5. Love this idea Nina! I must see what I have that I can use this treatment on. Your colour choices are fabulous!

  6. Cute card – love the dark card stock – it makes the bright details pop. Adore the subtle glitter on the hearts and the sewn detail on the edges.

  7. I LOVE THIS STAMP SET! Perfect example of why I need it! These mini Earths with hearts are so cute!

  8. What a fabulous set of cards – love the colours you’ve used. The way you’ve used the glitter is something I’m going to have to try too!

  9. I have the Dina Wakley Heavy Body Paints, but have never tried them in this way before, love the outcome!! You always think outside of the box and I love that about your projects!! I love the cards and I love what you did with globes and hearts! I’m going to have to give this a try!!! Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait for the next what you come up with next!!!

  10. Thank for the tip of the paint with glitter embossing powder! I am definitely going to try this. Your cards are awesome!
