A Touch of Glitter

Welcome back.

This week I have been having a play with using the Stick It adhesive sheets from Ken Oliver.  These sheets make it so easy to adhere fine and delicate dies to your projects but they have other uses including adding glitter to the card.  Here is a card that I have made using the Stick It sheets to add glitter to the background of the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval.

To add the glitter to the background I adhered a sheet of the Stick It sheet to the mauve cardstock and then using the plain oval die cut from the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval dies I cut out the oval.  I removed the backing to the paper and added the Decorative Oval die cut to the sticky oval.  I then sprinkled the glitter over the whole piece.

The result is a lovely glittery background to the piece.  This photo does show a little of the lovely sparkle.

After adding the oval to the background mats that I have die cut using the Sue Wilson Lattice Frame die set, I then added beautiful vellum flowers from the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms set.

I have used the same principle as last weeks post and sponged the back with Memento Lulu Lavender and New Sprout inks to make the flowers coordinate with the mauve pearlescent cardstock.

Here is the finished card again.

  1. What a clever way to use this product! When I started reading, I assumed that you cut the intricate die out of the sticky paper so it was easy to adhere to your card, but your idea is so much smarter! And has a dual purpose – die cut and sparkle!

    Thanks for sharing this technique!
