Stickles Saturday ~ Rainbow of Fun!

Time for another fun project using Stickles Glitter Glue!!

This week I have a card to share with you that was so much fun to make...bright and cheery using many of the newest colors of Stickles ~  Glam Pink, Tropical Tangerine, Firefly, True Blue, Thistle, Midnight Blue and one of their original colors ~ Yellow.

I also decided to incorporate a few of the recently reformulated Liquid Pearls ~ White Opal, Silver Pearl, Platinum Pearl, Baby Blue and Ocean Blue ~ to show you a few fun ways to use them.

Stamp Sentiment - Crafty Secrets


1. Cut a piece of light weight chipboard to the approx. size of your card.  I used a 4.5x6.5" rectangle.

2. Cover the chipboard with a layer of the White Opal Liquid Pearls.  I like to use my IBT and foam to spread it around for a nice even coat.

3. To create depth I then blended in a bit of Silver Pearl to the lower right hand corner and added a bit of the Platinum Pearl to the very edges.  In the upper left hand corner I blended in Baby Blue and added Ocean Blue to the extreme edge.  This yields a nice progression for a stormy sky...after all you can't have a rainbow without a bit of a storm.

4. After the LP's dried I stamped the sentiment in the lower right hand corner and embossed with black ep's.  

5. I highlighted the upper left hand corner with Midnight Blue Stickles that I spread around in a thin layer with my fingertip.

6. Now it's time to cut the cloud, rainbow and hearts.  I free-handed each element again on light weight chipboard and cut each shape out. 

7. Paint each element with white acrylic paint. 

8. I covered the cloud with a pretty thick layer of White Opal LP and swirled as I went to give the fluffy appearance of a cloud.  I then added a "silver lining" with a bit of Silver Pearl LP along the bottom edges. Set aside to dry.

9. I then drew faint pencil lines on my rainbow and filled in each section with the appropriate color of Stickles.  I mainly went with the new colors but you could of course use any colors you choose.

10. Apply Stickles to each of the hearts making sure you have colors in a variety of sizes.

11.  After all of the Stickles and Liquid Pearls have dried, affix each element to the card.  I used double stick foam to adhere some while others I mounted directly on the card.

12. Finish it off by mounting on desired color(s) of cardstock.


  1. One awesome card! Love the rainbow you created and all the hearts using Stickles!

  2. Love that LP cloud!
