Tuesday Night Live, Lantern Techniques!

Hello, everyone! 

Tuesday night on our live, we played with the brand new Lovely Lantern die set! I showed a variety of techniques to spice up your lanterns; They're absolutely stunning on their own, but you can use quite a few different tools to enhance them. 

Mom created this card using a bunch of AJVD products, quite a few from our "July Surprise" release, which you can view on our website! She used the Holly & Swirls, the new and improved Christmas Lights, and the newly returning Tiny Tags, which aren't available yet but will be soon!

She also utilized the Brick A2 Cover Plate, using it as a stencil and spraying with some Distress Mica Sprays (she did this before the live, but I use them in a technique, so check out the video if you'd like to see!

Check out our July release: 


 Alright, now for the techniques! I created 4 largely different lanterns with 4 different techniques, all of which are quick, fun, and easy, and give a nice, unique look to them.

Technique #1: Embossing Powder

The first technique is a classic; embossing powder! I absolutely love WOW! Embossing Powders, so I went ahead and used Rose Gold for this. On Tuesday's card, I used the verdigris color, and it's so, so beautiful as well!

All you have to do is use some embossing ink, place the powder, and then use your heat tool!

Technique #2: Brutus Monroe Glitter Glaze

I absolutely love these Glitter Glazes from our good friends at Brutus Monroe! They're exactly what they sound like, glitter gel pastes that are similar to a stencil butter. (Watch the live for the full explanation/application!) I used Galaxy, but there are so many other gorgeous colors, so check out their site for all the options!

Technique #3: Modeling Paste/Stencil Butter

The Crafter's Workshop has some awesome products; you guys know I'm obsessed with their Stencil Butters, so why wouldn't I use them here?

Technically, it's a modeling paste (which were initially what the metallic ones were, now some of them have been released in Stencil Butter form!) but that just means it's a little bit thicker than Stencil Butter

You can find these on Ken Oliver's website!

Technique #4: Shimmer Sprays

Alright! The final technique... Shimmer Sprays! I have a lot of the Dylusions shimmer sprays, but here I used the Distress Mica Sprays which are all metallic colors.
