VIDEO | Sparkly Snowflakes

Hello there, today I have a trio of cards that I made using the new Tonic Nuvo Sparkle Dust. Tonic Studios kindly sent me some of these to use and I have to say, I love them! They are really super fine glitter, hence why they are called a dust and not a glitter. They do not feel gritty like glitter but soft and silky like.


I started off by adding some Stick It adhesive sheet to some scraps of white cardstock. I removed the top film off of the Stick It and then applied the Sparkle Dust on top. Once it was adhered, I ran my finger over it to push the dust into the adhesive and then ran my bone folder over it. It's really difficult to capture the sparkle in photos or on camera but let me tell you, this stuff is gorgeous!
 
 
I used three shades of Sparkle Dust for my cards today - Paradise Blue, Cosmo Berry and Raspberry Bliss. The pieces were run through my Cuttlebug using one of the dies from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflake die collection. Since the Sparkle Dust is so fine, you can still see the stitching detail on the die cuts which I love.


Whilst die cutting, I also embossed a SSS Stitched Frame die on to A2 white card bases. If you are not sure how to emboss with dies. You see my video about it here.
 
 
The sentiment, from the SSS Arctic Christmas stamp set, was stamped on to each of the card bases using my Mini MISTI. The snowflakes were then adhered to the card with thin strips of clear foam tape.

 I apologise that the lighting isn't great in the video, but here is a look at how I made the cards:

I love how these came out. Clean and simple but I like the added shimmer that the Sparkle Dust gives. You could make them in lots of different colours too! Sadly the photos haven't done the glitter any justice but honestly, it is really sparkly in real life! Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great weekend.
