Wink Applying glitter

I am stamping Christmas cards and want to apply glitter to my pine needles. I was going to stamp the pine in white craft ink and then apply glitter. Do I need to do a lite coating of hairspray after I am done? Thanks

No you don't need to put hairspray on it. I am loving using my Stickles instead of glitter. It works great!

I always use SU's two way glue. Apply glitter to glue right after putting it on the paper and apply glitter, dump and tap away anything loose and then let dry a few minutes. After a few minutes when I'm sure the glue is thoroughly dry I swipe a swiffer dust cloth over the top to catch any loose glitter. (The floor swipe style.) Works great! PS-I have used red glitter for the first time and I LOVE it! Each project I do from now on will have red glitter on it! Actually I'd really like some purple glitter!

I love the write and run pen to apply my glitter. It works great. You just mark where you want the glitter with the pen, let it sit for just a minute and then rub your glitter over it with you finger. Just a little glitter will do, so its not very messy.

Hope this helps!

The glitter won't stick after the craft ink dries. You'll need embossing powder (like Irridescent Ice or something to that effect), or wait for the ink to dry and then use glue to hold the glitter. HTH Have fun making your cards!

There is also a glue pen. You use it just as you would a pen or pencil. Draw where you want the glitter and then sprinkle glitter dust and let dry. I made all my cards with it for Christmas. Hope this helps.

Tsukineko (the company that makes StazOn) has a glue pad -- I bought one at Hobby Lobby a while back on one of my trips between Savannah and Virginia, but have yet to try it out yet.

Do the generic swiffers work?

You need a quickie glue pen! It writes a line of glue as thin as a ball point pen. I love mine.

Yes, the generic swiffers work great too. As a matter of fact that's what I have. I figured if I used "swiffer" everyone would know what I was talking about. I use them after embossing to clean away the embossing buddy stuff left after you finish heat setting the embossing powder too. They also clean the powder pals nicely. I have also found that the tip on the two way glue tip works well for fine detail on my projects. But I would like to try the glue pad-- that sounds pretty cool!

You can also mix Glitter with Liquid Glass, then apply the mixture to your card using a toothpick. When it dries you have a really beautiful effect. On the My Art Section of my website there is a card where I did this to make ornament on a Christmas Tree. The title of the card is Christmas Tree Card if you would like to take a look.

Hope this helps!

Never mind, I had a chance to look at my glue pad and it was Palette and not Tsukineko.
