Ink Blended Stencil + Dry Glitter Paste Scraping with Kristina Werner

Hello, all! Kristina Werner here with some card inspiration! And this card was a journey to create!

I first started by ink blending onto white cardstock. I used the Layering Hearts stencil set and four colors of Simon ink: Doll Pink, Hot Mama, Sunshine, and High Dive.

After ink blending, I applied some Cosmic Shimmer Paste in Aurora Sparkle and Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel from Gina K Designs on top. I wanted to apply a thin layer of the glitter pastes, however both were a bit drier than usual. I thought I had ruined my project and started to scrape off the glitter pastes. However, that’s when the magic happened!

When I scraped the drier glitter paste off the surface of the cardstock with the palette knife, it left behind awesome distressed glitter areas. The texture and sparkle was unexpected and beautiful! I decided right then and there to continue with my card!

This surprise technique could be replicated with regular glitter paste by applying a thin layer and letting it dry just a few minutes. Then scrape some of the paste off with the edge of a palette knife (or whatever you’ve used for spreading out the glitter paste).

To finish off the card, I diecut the Love Your Guts dies from CZ Design with holographic cardstock and white cardstock. I then adhered the greeting to the front of the card.

Thanks for stopping by! You can grab all of the supplies I used today on this card at Simon Says Stamp!

  1. This is a classic case of not discarding something that you feel didn’t work. Like you sometimes I find that if I walk away for a time then I can get a brainstorm on how to use it and not discard hours of work. Thanks for sharing this with us!

  2. Oh I love when that happens… love the card and all that glitziness! Great stencil and Cathy’s chunky words are too cool. I love Valentine’s so much.

  3. Love this–I’ve learned to let stuff “rest” before I throw it, I often end up coming back later and liking it or figuring out a way to make it better. Thanks for showing us this happens to even the pro’s!
