Glittery-butterfly-closed Glitter-butterfly-inside

This is a card using Stampin' Up!'s heat & stick powder and cosmo fine glitter.  Heat & Stick powder is an adhesive embossing powder that's great for adding glitter or beads to a project with precision.

We stamped the butterfly from Sweet Shapes (p. 117 Spring-Summer Collection) with versamark, then coated the image with heat & stick powder.  Remove the excess, heat until the powder melts, then coat with cosmo glitter.  Shake off the excess, then one more shot of heat to the image to help it "set".  THEN use the 1-1/4" square punch – that's the secret to a centred image!

I liked the effect so much, but the card needed more "bling" so we did the same to some antique brads!  Using the tweezers from the tool kit (very important to prevent burns!) – we tapped the brad heads into the versamark pad, then coated with heat & stick powder, heated & coated with glitter!  I think they make a great accent to the strip of elegant eggplant that we ran through the crimper.  This is a long card that fits into Stampin' Up!'s small open end envelopes.  I really like this card shape!
