Your next project is sure to dazzle and shine with the Crystal Gems Pure Sheen Gemstones by Nuvo. Included in the package is one .6 fl oz bottle of pure sheen crystal gemstones in three different sizes.
I absolutely love these! The color is perfect for any color scheme and the crystals sparkle beautifully.
Also, there is a mix of different sizes included, so you can add really tiny ones or larger ones, depending on what fits your project best!
Used in this card: Dream in Colour Cards.
I love the Nuvo Pure Sheen Gemstones and wanted all the colors...until I thought about dyeing them to match any card or invitation I created. I know they come in different shapes too...so if you want another shape, this tip isn’t for you. But have you thought of dyeing these? So many ways! I often use Copic markers to color them, but you can use any permanent method that is transparent: alcohol inks, Stazon inks, maybe even Sharpies (not certain they retain the transparency). And if you want it to match the ink you have stamped with, that’s simple too. Just take a small circular stamp...probably overlooked in your stash: the center of a flower, a large “period mark”, etc...and use your chosen ink to stamp a small circle. Then use a glue that dries clear to adhere the gem over the stamped circle. After it dries, viola! You have a perfectly matched gem!
Love the sizes of the crystal gems. The sizes are great for my card making. I would of given it 5 stars, but the gems were stuck to the foam seal and they were hard to get off and were not sparkly because of the glue. The sticky part should just be on edges of the foam to just seal the rim on the jar or not have the glue at all.
These would’ve gotten 5 stars except for the lid... the top seal is sticky on the inside and catches all the gems at the top... it’s a bit of a job to recover them. Other than that however, these are gorgeous little gems and the multiple sizes in one package is fabulous!
