Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: WOW! Glitter Die Cuts with Heat Embossing


Hello everyone! It’s Nina-Marie here with you today and I have a SPARKLY set of cards to share with you this week that feature WOW! Sparkles Glitter.

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

A couple of the most popular ways to add glitter to projects is by using sticky-backed adhesive sheets or with liquid glues. I have done both of these before, and while they work equally as well, I find I actually prefer today’s method most of all. That is, by using Ranger’s Sticky embossing powder.


This powder is just like any other embossing powder, except that has a sticky finish when heat set. In the video below, I’ll be sharing the exact steps I took to use the embossing powder with the WOW! Sparkles glitter.


Speaking of the WOW! Sparkles glitter, have you tried any of it before?? It’s simply GORGEOUS! I am particularly fond of the multicolored powders, such as the one you see in the photo above. I have a few of the Sparkles glitters and chose to work with the Santorini, Fireworks and Peachy Keen colors today. Which color is your favorite? Mine would be Fireworks (the one pictured in the purple card).


One of my favorite aspects of these glitters is that they are static free! This means they won’t stick to anything and everything as badly as some other glitters can. Because of that, clean up was much easier!


The die you see in each of these cards is the Hooray die from Neat & Tangled. Very delicate and perfect for this technique! For inside the shakers, I used Sunshine, Rain, Little Princess and Sweet 16 mixes from Simon Says Stamp. I also used a random mix from Neat & Tangled that is no longer available; however, it is comparable to a mix of both the Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Lavender sequins and Darice’s Iridescent sequins.


I hope that today’s video inspires you to try both the WOW! Sparkles glitter and the Ranger Sticky embossing powder together to see what beautiful glitter effects you can create! The embossing powder would be perfect to use over top of solid stamped images as well for a beautiful glittery image. Lots of ways you could use these products! Thanks for visiting me today; I’ll be back again later this week with another video tutorial for you!
