I played with the silver bundle which looks like this:
From left to right you have the amazing Sparkle Dust glitter, I don't think I've found one finer. Next we have the embossing powder, the Nuvo drops I love so much, then the Glimmer paste, perfect for applying through stencils for a strong glittery finish. Finally the Mousse, which I will confess is quite new for me, but I did love it and it was so incredibly easy to use. And of an undescribable squishy consistency. Gorgeous!
I also used the Tonic Studios layered star dies for this project, and long-time Tonic fans may recognise the Sparkle and Shine sentiment from the 'Girls' Night Out range.
For the glittered card, I used the paste through the falling diamonds stencil and allowed it to dry a few hours. Then I cut my star shape and extra bits to fill the card.
The stars - I covered a piece of white card in a double sided sticky sheet and cut a larger star. I removed the sticky backing and laid a smaller star over it, and applied glitter all round the edge. I did this in a couple of other places too - and on the small stars - that was fun!
The sentiment - I started with white card, die-cut my words and rubbed the Nuvo Clear Mark pad over them before covering in silver embossing powder and heat embossing...twice! The lovely metallic finish is so cool!
Making sure I used every product, I rubbed mousse over some of the smaller die-cut stars, and got an instant transformation of a plain piece of card.
With a bit of spare card it was only right to make a matching gift tag - and besides it gave me a chance to heat emboss a sentiment again...I need to remember to do this more often!
A fun challenge, but loving silver as much as I do, it was great to mix and match all the products together on the one project.
