DID YOU KNOW SERIES!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today again with another product from ETC Papers.  They have a product that I know you will love.  It’s Glitter Paper!!  Yes, glitter paper that does not create a mess.  As a matter of fact, I’m going to share with you what I created by printing on glitter paper.

ETC Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper come in three colors:

White
Champagne
Silver

This cardstock is a printable inkjet glitter paper that comes the three different color glitter finish.  It come in a 8.5 by 11 sheet size.  It has a smooth surface, with no mess glitter falling off.

Note: You can only use it with an INKJET PRINTER!

It will make your prints sparkle and shine beautifully.

Lets take a look:

First up: Simple sentiment printing

I used the White Inkjet Printable Glitter to create these sentiment only cards.  I used Photoshop to properly place each sentiment so that I could print both cards on one sheet of paper.

These quotes were taken from the a commencement speech that I heard this past Saturday.

Super easy and no damage at all to my printer.

Second up: Background Printing

For this card I used the Silver Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper to create this glittery background.  I used Hero Arts Artisitc Circles Digital Kit to create this amazing background. I used Concord and 9th All About You Dies to complete the card.

Here’s a closer look:

Can you see the glitter in this view? Its so pretty in person!!

Third up: Color Printing

For this card I used the Silver Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper to create this glittery background. I used Hero Arts Pretty Blossoms to add the flower in the center of this card.  I used Photoshop to add the orange color to the flower.  I used Papertrey Ink Ways to Say Thank You Die to finish the card off.

This card and the card above was printed on the same cardstock to save paper.

Take a look at all three of the colors:

Top row: White glitter paper, Champagne glitter paper, Silver glitter paper

Bottom row: White glitter paper, Champagne glitter paper, Silver paper

I love how all of these cards turned out!! I have a quick video of these cards printing that’s posted on Instagram.

Be mindful: Wrong side Printing

I made a boo-boo while I printing on one of the sheets. I put the sheet in the printer on the wrong side.

Take a look:

You can tell its the wrong side: 1. there is no glitter and 2. the label is on that side. LOL

Here’s a closer look:

So be mindful when you place your paper in your printer.  Your printer will tell you which side is up.

Now let’s take a look at all of my completed cards:

Here are some other things you need to know about this paper:

  • Each color comes with 12 sheets to a pack.
  • Inkjet printing only.
  • The weight is basic cardstock.
  • The colors stay true to its color once printed.

I really loved working with this paper and I recommend that you give this paper a try.  Especially those of you who love glitter but do not use it because of the mess.

Die cutting this wood paper is as easy as die cutting regular card stock.
The hole was nice and clean after the punch.  The eyelet and washer didn’t ripe the backing.

wood-tag-with-black-backing

The color pencils went on so easy!  I was able to blend on the wood with no problem.

  • The wood takes the color of the backing!

The tag on the left has a black card stock backing and the tag on the right only has the adhesive back paper.  You can see the difference in the darkness and lightness of the tags.

  • You can letterpress the wood also!!

letterpressing

The wood paper didn’t break or separate when it when through the big shot with this letterpress plate.  It took on the ink with no problem and the ink did not bleed through.

  • It has an adhesive backing!

showing-the-backing

The adhesive backing is the highlight of this paper.  It makes it so easy to add the wood panel to the front of a card stock base.  It comes off with no tugging.

removing-the-backing

I folded the backing so that I could add the wood panel to the card stock without worrying if the panel is on straight. I lined the edges up and simple pulled the backing off to create a perfect wood card front.

  • Here’s the finished card!
