Hi there! A couple days ago I shared a video on creating no-mess glitter die cuts. I am back with another video with the same topic… but I also show how to get the look of colored glitter from clear.

I will admit it – this isn’t my favorite card. And it doesn’t help that I couldn’t get it to photograph well. LOL – how is that for honest?! But I love the technique and I hope Colin’s new teacher enjoys the card.
In my last video, I showed how to create colorful glitter die cuts. However, I know many of us don’t have a ton of different colors of glitter. This video shows how to totally fake it by using colored cardstock behind clear, sparkly glitter.
This technique is very simple. After covering colored cardstock with double-sided adhesive, I ran it through my die cut machine with the fun My Favorite Things Red Delicious apple die. I then removed the rest of the release paper, added the clear and sparkly Elizabeth Craft Designs Cool Diamond glitter and rubbed it in like crazy. The glitter really stays put, but just to be safe, I added a clear embossing powder coating over it. Works perfectly! I created the banner from a My Favorite Things Vertical Strips die cut and stamped the greeting from the My Favorite Things Office Space stamp set.
OK… I will take a break from glitter now. I don’t want to chase all you non-glitter people away.
See you soon!
