Top Tip Tuesday – How to make really easy embellishments with Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics. Following on from my Adhesive Top Tips Mini Series, today I am sharing how to make your own Adhesive Backed Pearls using the Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics and the Glue Dots you get in any of our Kits Collection. If you don’t have any of the dots from the Kits Collections you can always use out standard Mini Glue Dots, or I have another thought too.
I love the new Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics from the current Mini Catalogue, they are in such a great chose of colours, perfect for all your crating, not just for Christmas. However, you do need to be careful that you allow sufficient time for your dots to dry, or you could ruin your project by smudging it. This is where my Top Tips come in.
The first thought I have is to take the paper backing off the front of the Kits Collection Glue Dots and just add a little blob of the Pearlized Enamel Effects on the Glue Dot and then leave it to dry over night. In the morning you will find you have lots of amazing adhesive backed pearls in Black (although I think of it as Gunmetal), Real Red and White.
The Real Red is, as you would expect from Stampin’ Up!, a perfect match for all Real Red items. If you look at the picture above, you can see the pearls surrounding the stamped sentiment, stamped in Real Red ink, are a perfect match. The Black and White pearls are perfect to use around the focal point of my card. Simply nestling under the die cuts, an effect that would have been tricky with the liquid.
In the video I also show you how to make pearls without the adhesive backing, again you leave them to dry before you add them to your project. To find out how to make these, simply take a look at today’s Video Tutorial.
