Snowflake Soiree’ and ‘”Sparkle Powder” Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

You know I did a card for Founder’s Circle using a technique I kind of threw together…..several people emailed and asked how I achieved it. So I’ve done another card featuring the Snow Flake Soiree Set using the same technique. Let’s call it “Sparkle Powder”

I cased this card design from Mary Fish but did it in another color and used Embossing Powder. Thanks Mary for the inspiration.


SAM_2353_thumb[4]can you see the sparkle better?

Here is how I did it?

SAM_2329_thumb[3]you will need stamp set of your choice, Heat and Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Versamark, Embossing Buddy and tray to catch your powder.


I poured some Silver Embossing Powder into a small container.


then added some Dazzling Diamonds


cover with lid and shake to mix together


I placed my image piece onto a black piece of card stock as it’s easier for me to see. Sometimes it’s difficult to see white on white and where you are stamping.


Rub image with Embossing Buddy (really well)


Begin with stamping all of your images onto your image piece with Versamark


Then pour some Heat and Stick Powder onto the image piece and heat set……can’t show you that as I only have two hands…hehe


Immediately while the Heat and Stick is still warm pour your “Sparkle Powder” over the image and tap off excess.


You may need to use a soft brush to get stray flecks off. I had a time today with it in Florida as it’s pretty humid.


Now heat set again….heat tool in the background….heheSAM_2346_thumb[3]SAM_2347_thumb[3]

I used a scrap of Brushed Siler Card Stock and taped some white Taffeta Ribbon to the back of it….saving ribbon. Attach to your 4 1/4 x 11 Card Base.


I used my Magic Bow Maker to create my perfect Double Bow. (available for sale at the top of my blog)


Attach image piece with dimensionals


….and bow to the card using a Glue Dot

I then assembled and added my Basic Rhinestones.
