Glitter and Stencils! You’ve Got Them so USE Them!

Hi friends! Today we are going to make this super sparkly glitter stenciled card!

glitterblog

It is super frugal too using supplies from out sponsor Papermart! Watch the video to see how.

Video!

Supplies:
Shipping tags
Glitter
Double sided tape or adhesive sheet
Stencil (mine was from Stencil Girl)
Washi Tape
Organza Ribbon
Tulle

Directions:
1. Cover tag with double-sided tape.
2. Coat stencil with embossing ink or glycerin.
3. Remove liner from tape and place stencil ink side down on the adhesive.
4. Carefully add glitter filling in the stencil holes with the colors you want.
5. Press glitter in to the stencil and shake off the excess then wipe off the excess with a baby wipe.
6. Remove the stencil and cover the rest of the adhesive with clear glitter. Tap off excess and burnish glitter in.
7. Hear with a heat tool (optional) to be sure the glitter is secure.
8. Finish by adding a washi tape border and ribbon/tulle.

Just make sure (and I can’t stress this enough) that you coat your stencil with glycerin or embossing ink before you place it on the adhesive. Think of all the stencils you have and the colors of glitter out there, the possibilities are endless! I think I need to use this technique on a scrapbook page. What project would YOU use it on? Let me know in the comments below and while you are there please share this post with your crafty friends on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter!

Easy Masked One Layer Cards!

Here is a fun, easy project to make this weekend. You don’t need many supplies and I bet you have everything you need on hand. The ginkgo stamps are by About Art Accents and the Sentiment is by Stampin Up!

Tip: To save money on cards and envelopes wait until the large craft stores (Joann, ACmoore and probably the other ones too) put their packs of 50 5″x7″ card/envelope packs on sale. They come in white, cream and kraft and go on sale for $5 several times a year, especially around Christmas. You can get a card base and envelope for 10 cents and no cutting! They are not the thickest cards out there but they are perfect for this technique!

By masking I give the illusion of depth. Notice how the circle in the center seems to be on top? Neat huh? Watch the video to see how it is done!

Mistakes happen! Check this out, it is my favorite card because of a mistake I made while masking.

Notice the ginkgo branch in front of the center circle, I forgot to mask the circle when I started to stamp! So I grabbed my colored pencils and colored it so it looks like it is there on purpose! Shhhhh…don’t tell anyone. 😀 I hope you give this easy card a try. Sometimes it is good to get back to our stamping roots and revisit old techniques. Have a great weekend and til next time happy crafting!
