I don’t know about you, but I have a major love-affair with yummy rainbow GLITTER ink blending. This combo literally makes my heart sing!
Before I get into today’s tutorial… Have you SEEN the new
Love You More collection from Simon Says Stamp???
It has so many love-inspired products, a few of which I designed! Check them out below:
One of the new products I designed for the release is the
Tumbling Hearts stencil which I used in the sparkly rainbow card you see here.
The stencil is designed in a radial pattern; I was inspired by that design element to blend my Distress Oxide inks in that same radiating fashion. The colors I used were
Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet.
After blending the background, it was time to add a little sparkle… and by a little I mean a lot! Before I removed the stencil I applied a layer of
Transparent Paste, which will hold the glitter. I am in love with Simon’s Unicorn Dust glitter. It has just the right amount of iridescence, which goes with ANY color you have underneath!
I know I’ve said it already, but I really do adore glitter! If you don’t have the Unicorn Dust glitter, I also recommend one of these beauties…

See those sequins? I continued the circular theme by adhering
Love You and Birthday Cake sequins, radiating out from the sentiment; this really ties the whole design together.
Speaking of sentiments, I white embossed and die cut this trendy
love greeting from the Love and Valentines Word Mix 2 set; I used Doll Pink cardstock for this.
If you love glitter as much as I do, I highly encourage you to try out this technique for yourself. It is super easy and creates that ultimate wow-factor!
