Grandma's Rocking Chair - January 26, 2014 - Dazzling Detail Glitter

Grandma's Rocking Chair Question - How to do you put on Dazzling Diamonds?

I use Dazzling Diamonds very rarely,  I love the look but hate that it gets all over and I do mean all over.  Today I had an Open House for my Birthday and brought out the bling.  Part of the bling they could use, was the Dazzling Diamonds.

I got this idea from Sue Reynolds at convention.  I thought it was great for a Birthday Party and it was.
It really needed bling so we blinged it up.  Pearls, Rhinestones, and Dazzling Diamonds.  I would have used the glass glitter as that doesn't get all over, but it was to big and would not look nice on this little light.  Since a lot of the folks have never used Dazzling Diamonds and wanted to know about it.  So thought you would all like to know about Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

This is what Stampin' Up! Product description says about Dazzling details.

Quick Trick
You can dye Dazzling Diamonds to coordinate with any Stampin’ Up! color. Here’s how:

1. Add one drop of Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill and a few drops of water to an empty Stack & Store
2. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of Dazzling Diamonds and mix. Continue adding glitter until all the dye is
absorbed. The glitter will become fluffy as it absorbs the dye.
3. Continue to mix glitter until it sparkles. The dyed glitter will stay fluffy but the color will reflect off
the glitter, so all you see is colored sparkles.

Add a splash of glitter to fingernail polish for unique effects!

I will have to try it with nail polish.

So how do you get it to stick.
1.  Stampin' Up! says to use Heat & Stick Powder but I think it is not easy for someone who has never used it before so that was not a good one.  Though if you have used it before and are not putting the glitter on plastic it works great.

2. Multipurpose Glue -  not bad but I didn't use it, mainly because they make dots and heavy lines or if you use the other tip a large swatch. and all we needed was a small area covered.

3. Sticky Strip - not good for this one as we were only doing a small area. and needed to attach on odd shaped objects.

4. What I used - 2-Way Glue Pen - I really like this as you can just put some on the small areas wait a few seconds until most of it dries and then drop it into the the Dazzling Diamonds container.  I put all my embossing powders, and glitters in  those plastic ziplock boxes, works great and helps keep the glitter a little better.

You can even use Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals to attach glitter.

Because everyone had fun i may have to take out the Dazzling Diamonds more often.

Just remember 2 days before Sale-A-Bration Starts, get your list ready.

Happy Stamping
