Tuesday's {Tip}

Stickles! Do you have any yet? Well, if you don't you need to grab some fast! I love these little bottles of fun! For those of you that haven't heard of them, they are bottles of glitter glue in assorted colors. I have the basic colors plus some fun additional ones.


I have been experimenting with them a lot. I have found a few fun ways to use them:


  • Fill button holes with a fun color.

  • Outline diecuts to give dimension.

  • Use a paint brush and spread over die cut letters and shapes for a glittered effect.


  • Dot onto ribbon for a fun effect.


  • Stamp an image and then go over the image with Stickles.


  • Use them as an accent on chipboard shapes.

In this layout, I did a few different things. I used silver Stickles to fill in the button holes, to add bling to my ribbon, and to add additional bling "dots" around the buttons and Heidi Swapp bling. I then used another Stickles color to paint on my Quickutz die cut letters in the title. Sometimes the bottles do get clogged so I just use a straight pin and push it through the hole. Works perfectly after that.

Feel free to post your tips in the comments section and add to this list of Stickles fun! Have a joyous Tuesday!

I just used Stickles for the first time for the Scripture challenge (and one day I will get around to scanning and posting them), on the word Peace, I drew accent lines on the cardstock stickers and let it dry without smooshing it, so I got a nice 3D effect on my already 3Dish stickers!

Oh I LUUUUUURV stickles, I'm a junky now! I used matching stickles over the dry embossing on this Scripture Challenge card for some BLING! (Sorry I'm a pitiful photographer, LOL). http://www.scrapjazz.com/galleries/31523/view/452034/-1/0/1.html

Oh I love Stickles. As a matter of fact I just finished my "WAIT" layout today for the Scripture Challenge and used stickles to highlight my EAGLES. (Yes I know I am behind :>) http://www.faithsisters.com/photopost/showphoto.php/photo/12098

Love your layout. What a cute pictures of the kids in their dance costumes. I wish our studio took a group shot. I have only used stickles once, but liked them after I got the bottle to work.

I like to use Stickles and Liquid Pearls to fill in the center of small prima flowers.

I love stickles too! I love to dot the center for flowers for some sparkle.

I love to use stickles to glue on rhinestones and flowers. I've also painted with them on chipboard or canvas mini albums.
