Updates and Nuvo’s new Triangle Glitter

February 26, 2019

Hellllooo!

Despite the blog being quiet for a while, I have been creating projects I have wanted to share; only my computer is not cooperating! It seems I have run into hard disk issues making it difficult to use my editing programs.   I had hoped to be able to share my completed Halloween album and my Graphic 45 Christmas album in a video walk-through, but no luck.  They were design team projects for the local store, so I had to physically give them up.  Sigh!

Moving on to what I can do with my mobile devices…I love my tonic craft kits. One of the benefits of being a subscriber is getting new releases before the general public. In the last kit, we received a generous bottle of “Rainbow Quartz Triangles” glitter. A new addition to the “Pure Sheen” line.

We also received new colors in the Hybrid inks in the “Tropical” theme. Yes, they sent us the whole pack of three. I was so happy to see these bright colors in the middle of a rainy winter.

Wanting to use these new products around Valentine’s Day I decided to try them out on a card. I used  1-inch adhesive tape on the top and bottom, inked the middle section with the Panama Rose color. I loved how easy it was to apply with Tim Holtz Blender tool and get a pretty even application.  Using Nuvo clear embossing ink and Nuvo Expresso Embossing Powder, I stamped the sentiment.

Now for the show stopper, I removed the tape to add the triangles. The cool factor is how much light they catch. If you are looking for maximum sparkle, this will do it. However, on a card, it will take some work to get them flat and lined up.  I think in the future I would use wet adhesive for this kind of application. I also went over a few places that had gaps with the Diamond Pure Sheen Glitter which I used on the bottom 1 inch of the card.

After playing with these Quartz Triangles confetti/glitter, I think they would be stunning in a shaker element. Either a shaker for a card, mini album page or front cover element these triangles would make it sparkle. The nice thing is they pack a lot of product in the bottle so one could be generous in a shaker and still have a lot left over.
