Today I have, not one but three tutorials using Little birdie Metallic Wax – Copper Blaze.

This product is so versatile, you could use it on a variety of mediums and finishes. It gives instant shine to your projects. At such a reasonable price  you must buy it before it goes out of stock. It’s that good!

Lets get started –

The first project I am showcasing, is a home decor project.
Step 1:
I used  Little Birdie Embossing Texture Paste- Frosty Fizz with Little Birdie 14×14 inch stencil Classy Lace on a black cardstock. The cardstock measured 7″ × 12″.

I used only half of the stencil.

* Spreading the paste evenly with a spatula is the key*

Step 2:

It looks like this.

With the help of a heat gun, I got this texture as you can see below.

Isn’t it gorgeous?

Step 3 :

Then I used my ‘Star’ product – Little Birdie Metallic Wax in Copper Blaze. I used my finger to dab the wax on the elevated parts of the design. I purposefully avoided some areas and kept them white. I also let the wax spread a bit on the cardstock too. Its unto you how you want the design to look.

Step 4:
I adhered the cardstock on a heavyweight chipboard of the same size.
To further decorate the panel, I used Little Birdie Pearl Drops by.

This project of mine is complete! Wasn’t that simple?

Now, let’s move on to the second project :

Step 1:

On a square canvas measuring 4″×4″, I stamped the sentiment from the Family stamp set in the middle.

Step 2:

I then lightly drew a circle around it with the help of a lid. I spread the Glass Bead Gel by Little birdie around the circle with the help of a spatula.

Step 3:

After drying it looks like this :

Step 4:
The next step involves sponging on top of the gel with Little Birdie Chalk paints – Frozen Ice & Sailing Sky.

I also mixed those two to get a darker grey.

Step 5:
After drying, I spread Little Birdie Metallic Wax – Copper Blaze.
I also outlined the circle with the chalk paints. And used pearl drops around the circle to further enhance the look.

And its complete!

Now, lets begin the 3rd tutorial :

You can use this versatile Metallic Wax in card making too!

Step 1:

Taking a 4 × 4 inch Bright White cardstock , I used various distress inks and smooshed them using water.

Step 2:

After I was satisfied with the result, I used the the ‘Flora Wishes’ stamp by Little Birdie on the panel and heat embossed it with Little Birdie Clear Embossing powder.

Step 3:

I then spread the Metallic Wax – Copper Blaze on top of it with my finger. After that I took a tissue and wiped the excess off!

Step 4:

On a base of Classic White cardstock measuring 5.5″ × 11″ , scored at 5.5″, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set repeatedly with Festive Berries distress ink.

I adhered the square panel in the middle. Also, I spread the Metallic Wax – Copper Blaze all over the sides. Next, I stuck red shiny tape on two sides.

*To make it transfer proof, I applied a thin layer of Little Birdie Matte Varnish*

And my card is complete.

Hope you liked my projects. If yes, then why not make your own and link them to the challenge? I am sure you are excited to participate too!
