How to create Glittered words

I've been on hiatus for too long. Sorry, recovering from the holidays.

I just created this card for my Etsy shop and thought I'd share instructions on how to create glittered words.

-I printed the saying on cardstock with my computer.
-I rubbed the paper with a dryer sheet to prevent the embossing powder from sticking where it's not supposed to be.
-I then used an embossing pen to write over the top of the words ROCKIN'.
-I then sprinkled black glittered embossing powder over the top and shook off the extra.
-I then heat embossed the glitter until melted.

This really adds a pop to all sorts of projects. You can add detail to any saying, title, clip art, embellishment, etc... and then emboss with any color of glittered embossing powder.

  1. Great tutorial!!! I didn't know dryer sheets are that useful! I always have this problem with glitters.
