Shiny Hearts!

So the other day Kristina Werner posted on Twitter that she was making glittery, glossy accented embellishments.  She didn't post a picture, I'm assuming she made a card for her Christmas series she's working on right now, but the image of glittery, glossy accented embellishments immediately came to mind!  Doesn't that just paint a happy little picture?

I got to work over the weekend and tried my hand at some glittery embellishments.  Step 1:  cut out cardstock shape from die Step 2:  put adhesive on cardstock shape Step 3:  cover cardstock shape with Glossy Accents Step 4:  let dry Step 5:  be slightly disappointed because glitter doesn't show through Glossy Accents as much as you thought it would.


It's very shiny and very pretty, just not as glittery as I was expecting.  I still LIKE it A LOT though!  :)

I made three of these and here's the card I made with one of them:



Do you see what is in the background there???  My pattern paper from the other day :)  I layered on a few bits and pieces from my scrap basket and stuck in a couple of stick pins before adding my sentiment.  Loving this happy little card.

I hope you have a fantastic Wednesday!  Thanks for coming by today and I'll see you tomorrow!

  4. Love experiments! I might try it with triple thick gloss glaze and see if it shows glitter from under it. Thanks for the idea :).

  12. Love that you used your heart even though YOU weren't to happy with it. I think it turned out great!
    Did you find out how it was done?
    I have never used glossy accent, but could you put the sparkle on last and then a touch more glossy accent?
