Crafting Technique

Recently I came across a technique that piqued my interest. It involves glitter, wide double sided  tape or sheets, cardstock and your favourite dies. Doing this technique was both easy and fun. The result was beautiful and very festive. Check out the video below to see just how fun this technique is.

The second video shows how to use alcohol inks with shimmer sheets and embossing. These techniques are so very beautiful and easy to do. I think they make awesome Christmas cards.

Disclaimer:

The videos I choose to use are meant to show the technique only. Products used in the video are not the same as what we have in our retail store. We do carry everything you will require to do the technique, just not the name brands.

Nuvo has thought this product line out very well as there are spray bottles, water brushes, adhesive and adhesive pens. There is also a Crystal Glaze that will add that special sheen to your Christmas cards your friends and family will love. Sparkle Dust and Glitter Paste are new products and they are as they sound, a fine sparkle glitter and a paste made with tons of glitter. Both these products come in many colours.

Just when you thought I was done I have one more thing that has many colours in the sets and that is Creative Pens. The Copper, Gold and Silver are water based but the rest are alcohol based. These markers have a nib end and a brush tip, both on one pen WOW!

I think I have them all but just in case you should pop in and check out the whole line. Don’t wait too long these are going fast.
