Technique Hop - Glitter Gel

Everyone loves "bling" but what better time than Christmas to add some glitter and shine to your projects?! This month we are highlighting Close To My Heart's Glitter Gel available in three different colors:  Silver, Bronze and Red and each tube is just $2.75!  What a steal!

You can find a list of the participating Consultant at Debi's Blog.  If you have come from Wendy's Blog you are on the right track!  This blog hop is one big circle so start here and continue moving to check out this month's creative uses of "Glitz".

I had fun decorating this My Creations Card Box with the Believe paper packet!  I just love the Santa's on there!  Would you know I didn't do a bit of stamping to decorate the box but instead used our Exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge?!  I used the Cricut to cut out the focal points on the top of the box; the Christmas tree and star tree topper.  I also used a piece of Desert Sand to accent the tree trunk and finally used the Red Gel to highlight ornaments on the tree.

Next, I used all three Glitter Gels to accent these gift tags.  I used our Dimensional Elements to stamp images on there.  The nice thing about our Glitz is that it serves a similar purpose to other "bling" but goes a lot further.  Gotta love "bling" that lasts...and lasts...and lasts...

The Glitter Gel is super easy to use and has a fine tip.  You can apply it to the finest of areas or spread it across a larger image.  Before using it, it is wise to shake the bottle - allowing the liquid and glitter to mix - before using.  Be sure to allow ample drying time so that you don't mess up your creation!  The amount of drying time required various depending upon the humidity of the room and the amount of application to your project.

I would love for you to create an item and incorporate the Glitter, sharing it with me when you are done!  Let me see what awesome creation you came up with!  Feel free to leave a comment and then click on over to Cherri's Blog to see what she's created!

Happy hoppin'!
