10 Ways To Add Sparkle Using New Stickles Glitter Gel

Have you seen Ranger’s new Stickles Glitter Gel? Oh my the sparkly bliss! If you’re local, I’m happy to report that Stamp Fever in Orange, California has several colors of the glitter gel in stock. Linda at Stamp Fever is a delight and so is shopping at her store. Such great finds! You will find shopping there a lovely experience whether you’re a stamper or mixed media enthusiast. During this time of Covid quarantine, she’s offering curbside delivery.

The colors are so delicious and depending on what you layer the stickles on, it can lend to different effects. Colors include Asteriod, Dark Matter, Moon Dust, Nebula, Solar Flare, and Super Nova.

I created a tag by adding some acrylic paint, applied acrylic paint through stencils, a heart, a phrase and washi tape. After the paint was dry and the tag complete, I used the gel in a more organic way by taking a plastic spatula and swiping the gel on in three different places. The result, a lovely sheen that adds to the tag. I used the Nebula color on this particular tag. After using the gel for the first time, I am thrilled and can want to share other ideas I have brewing. Wowsa. I’m in love.

I titled my tag . . . “It’s All About Love.” This has been a resounding message. We need to love one another. Love trumps all.
