You can stamp on glitter!
I've seen posts online that say it's possible to dye glitter with ink refills and I've watched Jennifer McGuire's video on making glitter die cuts. So *obviously* I began to wonder - can you stamp on glitter?? Answer: why yes, darling, you can!
Step 1: Cut your shape out of double-sided adhesive paper or foam paper.
Step 2: ADD GLITTER! Jennifer likes to burnish the glitter in, but I find it easier to sprinkle glitter onto some paper and rub the sticky surface into the glitter. Do what makes you happy.
Step 3: Stamp! It helps to have a MISTI stamping tool for this step because the impression is very light at first. You can stop at one impression if you want a pastel shade of your ink color, otherwise stamp the image several times until you're pleased with the result.
You may want to buy some small cubes of ink and use them just for glitter because you will get some on your ink pad. It cleans up fairly easily though.
There you go! Hand stamped glitter stickers & embellishments! My MISTI is now a hot glittery mess, but I'm so pleased with myself I don't even care.
TIP: Choose stamps with bold designs because fine lines get lost in the fabulous sparkle-fest.
Much love & happy crafting!
