Default Can I replicate Dazzling Diamonds with Diamond Dust?

Is there any way for me to get a look similar to Dazzling Diamonds if I don't have any Irridescent Ice Embossing powder on hand??

If you have the Dazzling Diamonds glitter, then I think you can mix it with some clear embossing powder and it will achieve a similar effect to the iridescent ice. I haven't tried it myself though. I think if you go to the Resources page, in the Dazzling Diamonds tutorial there are some questions and answers from Beate on alternatives.

I like using Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I stamp in versamark or cover my image with versmark, sprinkle on heat and stick powder, heat it just so it turns to liquid and then sprinkle on the glitter. I use a brush to wipe off the excess after I let it dry for a few minutes.

If you have a Xyron machine you can get the same effect. You run your stamped image through upside down, with the image facing down instead of up, so it puts the adhesive on the image side. Then you can cover it with Dazzling Diamonds, or whatever glitter you have. This is not my original idea, I got it from JulieHRR. She has a fabulous card in her gallery using this technique and the Tag Punch set. Otherwise, you can use Heat and Stick powder like someone else mentioned.
