birthday-flowers-heat-stickThis is the swap that Brandi made for her meeting.  I really love how she used heat and stick powder to make the flowers sparkle.

Heat and stick powder is really quite easy to use.  If you have ever heat embossed than you know how to use heat and stick powder you just need to add two more steps.

First you need to stamp your image.  If you are using the dazzling diamonds heat and stick like on this card then you would want to stamp with a craft ink pad so that it stays sticky.

Next you need to pour on the heat and stick powder just like you would embossing powder.  Be sure to use the powder pals for easy clean up and to be able to put your left overs back in the bottle.  Once you’ve covered your project shake off the excess and tap the back to make sure you have removed all the extra powder.

Now you are ready to heat the powder.  Just heat it up with your heat gun.  You will see it start to melt just like you do with the embossing powder.

Once you have melted the heat and stick powder you are ready for your glitter.  Simply sprinkle the glitter over the heat and stick powder.  Use a another powder pal for this.

After you have applied the glitter re-heat the image for a few seconds just to set the heat and stick powered.

That’s it your done.  You’ve added a fun sparkle to your stamped image.  I encourage you to give it a try today.
