Default edge glitter

i am not a glittery girl, but i have some die cuts that i would like glitter on the edges--delicate.

i thought a glue pen and glitter. it still looks a little too heavy/3rd grade kind of glitter. what should i be doing for grown up glitter. of course i bought the $30 glitter set thinking if i turn out to be a glittery girl, this would be a better investment. so know i need to know how to use it.

thanks
lori

Have you tried using Stickles around the edges? That's what I do when I want a touch of glitter on the edge of things.

They have a very fine tip and you can make a fine line with them.

Here is a page showing Stickles. You can buy them in lots of stores, too. Michaels and Hobby Lobby carries them.

I've found that I mostly use the neutral ones, like Diamond, Stardust and Crystal. They take on the color of the cardstock you put them on, for a subtle look.

I also like Stickles better than regular glitter, because when it dries, it doesn't flake off like glitter tends to do.

I totally hear you. I like to add a tad of "blink" without it being too noticeable. One thing that works for me is the Sakura star dust pens. I got few in different colors, but I use most the clear one. It is a very nice discreet touch.
Be well

Was your glitter too chunky? One of the reasons Stickles works well for subtle effects is the glitter is finely cut.

I found these labeled fine tip, but I haven't used them so I don't know how fine they really are:

Have you tried using a small paint brush to apply your glue. Sprinkle with glitter, lay a piece of scrap paper on top & rub to press glitter into the glue, remove paper. I like to let it dry before shaking/brushing off excess glitter.

There is a glue pen from Sakura as well. I use them all the time and love it. Not messy and make a fine line.

Smooch Glitz works well for that for me. It comes with a tiny brush applicator so it's easy to control. Check HERE for samples and reviews.

Beate, Is Smooch paint or ink? I see it described as both.

I finally found a definitive answer. Smooch glitz is ink.

Sorry I made you search. I didn't see the question until you answered it already. It is ink, but it dries completely clear. You can't see it, you only see the glitter particles once it is dry.

Thanks, Beate. It was confusing because some retailers described it as paint or glitter paint, while others classified it correctly.

i would recommend the sakura quickie glue pen. it looks like a ballpoint pen and dispenses a thin line of glue. it goes on blue and is then permanent. if you let it dry it goes clear and can then be used as a repositionable glue. in that state, it can also be used with gilding flakes, transfer foils, flock etc.

there is also a zig 2-way glue pen (lots of different width nibs) but don't think they have one as fine as the quickie glue pen.

This is my vote, too, for a delicate sparkle and easy to do with an intricate design.

If you want a very fine edge on your card, you can set it into a glue pad and then set the edge into a pan of glitter. I have 5 jars of SU's Dazzling Diamonds in a flat container so I can just dip away! I do this also with the VersaMark pad to add embossing powder.

if working on a straight edge, for a sparkle effect; have you tried the red liner double stick tape? I like it because you can do a straight line, and very durable, more so then any glue

Smooch Glitz is ink. I think the colors are more intense than glitter paint, which is often like a semi transparent glaze. I didn't know Smooch Glitz was supposed to dry clear. Beate said the glitter/sparkle doesn't show up until it dries.

i could not find smooch glitz at michaels. just smooch. which reminds me of liquid eyeliner in consistancy.

i think rebecca meant to say sakura glue pen rather than glitter pen as she mentions glue afterwards. it is a pen that has glue in it rather than ink and works like a ballpoint pen.

I know I'm a bit "out of the loop" as far as new products that have come out in the past couple years - but I used to LOVE using Art Institute glitter - I need to build up a collection of colors again (sigh, with over 400 colors to choose from, that's a job! LOL!)

Their products are great. We did some beautiful cards that were kinda like stained glass once - stamped a detailed flower block on acetate, then "painted" it on the underside with many varying shades of the glitter, blending into one another. For example, on one large flower, we probably used 7 or 8 very-close shades of purples throughout the flower, to really accent the color shift within the petals. Their vast color range makes for all sorts of possibilities! I always liked the translucent colors best, but the opaques are lovely too. They're a bit pricey, I'd get a small kit at a time, and slowly built up my colors that way.

i never did get the edge gliiter thing to do right. so i bought not one but two different glue pads because i couldnt decide which would be best. apparently neither. i wanted to stamp a butterfly and then cut it out. neither product held the glitter. it just brushed off. i tried pressing it on, letting it dry over night. giving it a shot with the heat gun. now i see where they make a tacky embossing powder and you can put glitter in that when its melted. any one try that?

and this is why i am not a glitter girl.

I have, and don't know if SU! even offers it anymore, a product called "heat and stick powder" (sounds like it might be what you are describing) and it works well, as long as you DON'T OVERHEAT IT.

I see you tried a ballpoint glue pen -- and that would have been my other suggestion. It's hard to make suggestions without knowing exactly what you want to do...when you say edges, do you mean edges of an image? like highlighting the edge of a petal on a flower? Or do you mean a die cut, that you'd like to put glitter around the edge of the die cut?

I know you already made an investment in glitter, but stickles really is a great product if you're not a 'glitter girl' and just want a bit of sparkle. List the $30 glitter kit on the bst, spend $3 on a bottle of stickles, and see if you like it. Get a sakura stardust pen too, you can always use a waterbrush to thin out the glitter a bit if you think it's too thick. HTH Good luck!

first i wanted the glitter on the edge of a cheery lynn butterfly die cut. no success. then i wanted to stamp a butterfly with the glue pad and have it be glitter and then cut it out. no success. i tried smooches, but that was really just paint. not glitter. the glitter i own is so pretty, but for what i am not sure. i am really a steampunk kinda girl, but sometimes i want to be a real girl and glitter. this does not seem like a really hard thing to master. the ballpoint pen, i thought would be like writing but you still are squeezing out glue, so it was not all that fine a line. i guess stickles is next.

ahhhhhh.... what was the brand of the glue pen?? The sakura "Quickie glue pen" is JUST like writing, no squeezing involved. And it gives you a nice fine line. Good luck, I hope you find something that works for what you want to do!!! With SO MUCH out there, there has to be SOMETHING that will work! lol

the stickles, what a good generic color. one that adds sparkle, but maybe not color. its hard to tell from the pictures online and the reason i never bought them in the store, is they came in sets of three and they were dark.

THIS place! lol Seriously though - I've been to a few shows, etc. check around and see if there are any conventions/craft shows that come your way, a lot of times they have lots of vendors, who in turn have some great stuff to offer. Blogs, SCS, and just checking things out are how I've found out about things.

Stickles? Stardust is a great one - just a bit of sparkle, the glue dries clear.

I think it was Ellen who said glitter is like the herpes of the craft world, HA! You will find it everywhere, no matter HOW careful you are

Is your glitter ultra fine? Most glue pads work great with ultra fine media (flock is super). Try letting you stamped image set for a while then "rub" the glitter in.

Yes, glossy card, acetate, vellum, etc., works best. Regular card soaks up the glue.

Now, I haven't tried this (yet) but I saw a suggestion to:

Let glue stand ten-fifteen minutes

Sprinkle with medium

Sandwich with scrap paper

Run through cutting machine - just plates.

Remove & brush off excess.

i think i will try this, only i think i will use wax paper, so on the off chance that something sticks to the glue, it wont be the scrap paper!
