Splattered Glitter Glue Technique

I taught this technique at my last Technique Tuesday class, and it was a huge hit.  Who doesn’t LOVE glitter?  It is the applying of it that kind of drives us all crazy.

I found a new method of getting glitter on a card – the splattered glitter glue technique.

What you need for this technique is Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Aquapainters filled with water, a deli lid or a empty stamp case lid, and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  This technique works best with a prestamped/precolored image.

  • On the deli lid/stamp case lid, squeeze out some glue and dilute it with water until it makes a milkier liquid.
  • Wet the tip of the Aquapainter with water and then dip it in the glue liquid.
  •  Tap out the glue all over the stamped image in a splattered pattern.  Try not to get too close – this tends to leave glue “blobs” not glue “splatters”.
  • Pour Dazzling Diamonds over the card stock and tap off excess.  Let dry and attach to card base.
  • Add any embellishments.

Here is the card we made.  Yes, it is from Sale-A-Bration, but isn’t it so darn pretty?

Sparkle and Shine Butterfly Project

Last night I held my first Sparkle and Shine Stamp Camp.  My customers made three cards and a 3D project.  I love this little project because it is so stinking easy AND I used my Heat and Stick Powder!  I've had the same jar of Heat and Stick for over 10 years.  I love the look of glitter, but I have to admit I usually stick with Dazzling Diamonds with 2-way glue.  I pulled out my Supernova Fine Glitter for this gorgeous project.  There are five colors to choose from – I liked the coppery orange with the bright blue.

The butterflies were made with my Big Shot and the backing from a package of DSP – I love it when I can recycle and create something fun!

Flower Fest Glitter Window Card

Welcome!  You may have found me today if you are following the SU Stars Blog Hop from the previous stop – Denise Foor Studio

One of the new stamp sets in the mini catalog is Flower Fest – love, love, love this stamp set!  I also used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the card phrase.

Flower Fest Glitter Window Card

 I created a glitter window card which is really easy and super pretty.  Here are the instructions for this card:

  1. Layer a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White on top of 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Certainly Celery card stock.
  2. Run a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of So Saffron card stock in the Polka Dot embossing folder.
  3. On the So Saffron, punch out a hole large enough to showcase image (I used the 1-3/4" circle punch)
  4. Stamp the rose image in Daffodil Delight using the punched piece as a guide.  Set aside the punched piece and then stamp the leaves in Old Olive.  Color in the rose with a So Saffron marker and the leaves with Certainly Celery marker.
  5. On the back of the punched piece, attach a piece of clear packing tape so the "sticky" side faces out.
  6. Pour Dazzling Diamonds glitter on top of the clear packing tape and tap off the excess.
  7. Attach So Saffron piece to card base.
  8. Tie ribbon in knot.
  9. Stamp phrase, insert brad, and adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
