Glitz Glitter Gel Inspiration 3 Ways!

Hello everyone! Have you tried out the gorgeous new Glitz Glitter Gels from Gina K. Designs and ThermoWeb? I adore them; so much so, that I have 3 different techniques using the gels to share with you today. All of the cards I am making today also feature Gina’s Floral stencil.

How I Made It
Glitz Glitter Gel Inspiration 3 Ways!

The first technique I’ll be featuring in today’s video is using two colors of Glitz Glitter Gel with some masking over a stencil. With a bit of Purple Tape and some patience, you can create a gorgeous duo-tone stenciled design in no time at all.

Gina K. Designs has lots of beautiful paste colors, which means you could change the color combos up to create a floral arrangement you love most! I was particularly drawn to the Bubblegum pink gel… so pretty!

Next up, I wanted to share a more tone-on-tone effect. The Glitter Glitz Gels from Gina K. Designs are semi-opaque. This looks amazing as you can see from the first card I created, but I wanted to try using these glitter pastes in a more translucent appearance.

To do this, I mixed a dollop of White Glitz Glitter Gel with another dollop of Ranger Transparent Texture Paste (I used the matte version) on my craft sheet before applying it through the Floral stencil.

I had leftover of this DIY paste that I created, so I ended up making a second card using this same technique; each of the background on these two cards were made with Alcohol Inks on Ranger Alcohol Ink cardstock.

My final technique for today is using the gel over an ink blended stencil design. This look is very unique for a few reasons…

  1. Distress Oxide Inks – which I used for the ink blending – react with moisture and these Glitz Glitter Gels are quite moist.
  2. The Glitz Glitter Gels are semi-opaque, which means everything underneath will be altered in appearance.

What I was really excited about was the way the properties of the Oxides and the Glitz Glitter Gels combined together. The bright colors of the Oxides are muted under the semi-opaque paste, creating a soft and elegant floral arrangement.
