heat and stick powder


A few of my stamping friends have asked "what do we to do with Heat and stick powder?" Well, here is a card that I had sooo much fun making for my bud Leslie-Ann.
Here are the directions for making this great card inspired by another stamper.
Cut a piece of whisper white cardstock the size that you would like to have the glitter background. Take your Versamark stamp pad, and coat the piece of paper with it. Holding the paper over your glitter tray, sprinkle the heat and stick powder over the entire surface. Using your heat gun set the powder until the paper is sticky. Once again, holding the paper over your tray sprinkle with dazzling diamonds until coated. Heat set again. Be careful not to over heat at this step as you may burn the glitter. When it appears shiny, it is done. At this point you can stamp on the glitter using Stazon ink.
I used black Stazon for this project, and then coloured in the image with markers.
