Technique Tuesday: Glitter Designer Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you are a glitter addict then I have the perfect technique for you… Glitter Designer Paper!  I have been doing this for years … the only thing that has changed is the adhesive that I used.  Today I’m using the fabulous Multipurpose adhesive sheets! Quick * Clean * Glitter perfect!!  Pictures do not do it justice!

I’m using the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Paper. If you love fresh flowers, you will love this paper, the patterns are so pretty and look like they are ready to be picked with the photographic floral designs ❤

I begin with the choice of designer papers … that will set you up for a perfect color pallet (the colors are already listed on the designer paper packaged – Thanks Stampin’ Up!). I chose the returning Mossy Meadow and new Petal Pink, and Whisper White for my greeting.

Using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets makes this technique so easy. I cut the adhesive sheet slightly larger than my designer paper, then I trim off the extra.  This ensures I have full coverage of adhesive on my designer paper … don’t want any spots that don’t have glitter!!

Once I have the covering removed … I put the sheet into my glitter tub and sprinkle it with the Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I made sure to cover it fully and then tap off the excess glitter.  Then I use a scrap piece of paper and cover the glittered paper. My next step is to firmly press the glitter into the adhesive – I use one of my clear blocks.  Remove scrap paper and tap off any excess glitter. WOW! Just beautiful!!

I matted the glitter paper onto the Mossy Meadow cardstock and then onto the card base in Petal Pink.  I used the Label Me Pretty stamp set and stamped the lined decor in Petal Pink and the greeting in Mossy Meadow… then it was punched with Pretty Label punch.  I punched out another label in Mossy Meadow, cut it in half and then attached it to the back … this allows you to mat the label 🙂

I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the filigree lines on the label and the rhinestones to add a touch of bling to my blinged out card!! I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the greeting which added a little dimension to the card. Again, the camera does not capture the full beauty of this card.

I thank you for spending a part of your day with me. I encourage you to try this beautiful and fun technique. It really is quite easy as well.  I have listed the supplies I used on today’s card below.

You’re the Best! Have a beautiful day ~
