How-To Video: Thin Glitter Die Cuts

Hello. I have a video for you today! This one shows how to create super thin glitter die cuts. Hard to explain, so I did a video to show…

Here is the glitter fun. I love that it looks like it was done by hand…

You could do this technique with many die cuts. I really recommend this Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter. It stays put and looks like shimmery velvet…

THIS is the die I used for this card. It is an exclusive Simon Says Stamp die that was made by Memory Box. (I have mentioned before my love for these high quality dies.)

There are several of these exclusive dies (including both used on this card) – you can find them HERE.

See you again soon.

(By the way, I will be back with a list of recent winners soon.)

  1. I have recently fallen in love with Memory Box dies also, upon your introduction to them. I have several that I could use this technique with. Thanks for sharing, and the video was great! Hope you and the baby are doing well.

  2. I can see I’m going to have to break down and get some of those dies. I try to only buy ones that are multi-purpose, and these both fit the bill.

  3. Jennifer,this was such a great video. I’ve always wondered how the ladies did a rainbow sentiment. I love this way. By the way, I did go to simon Says and the dies are showing ‘not in stock ” Is there anyway to be notified by Email when they are back in. I thought maybe since they were new dies they weren’t shipping yet.

  4. Love how clean and simple, yet pretty and effective this is Jen!! I love Kristina & Simon’s new dies….I’m gonna have to place another order real soon. Thanks for the inspiration and YAY! for a new video. (thanks for sleeping through Lila, lol). Michey xx

  5. I’m so glad you did this video! Love all the different colors you added to that fun sentiment die! Pretty card with such a neat effect! And yes – because of you, I am going broke! Gonna definitely need more of these dies now, and probably that glitter too! πŸ™‚

  6. Amazing! I have been trying to get away with not having a die cutter, but man… I may just need to take the plunge. Haha! :]

    Could you list what “powder tool” you use? I sometimes use corn starch in a similar way but having a tool would be so handy and less messy I’m sure! πŸ™‚

  7. Oh, how I’ve missed your fabulous videos! I don’t really like using loose glitter, way too messy for me, but after seeing this video, and your stamping on glitter, I now want to try it out =) TFS!

  8. A really awesome idea, thanks sooo much for sharing it with us here. Definitelky one IΒ΄m going to try out soon, thatΒ΄s for sure.
    Have a wonderful day and lots of fun.

  9. Bright & Cheerful. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful technique. I love the way you used the adhesive tape to remove the words from the thin die cut, adhere it to the background AND add the glitter. Great video

  10. I fell in love with this die the minute it was released and i’ts coming my way as we speak! Thanks for some more inspiration on how to use it -love it with glitter!!

  11. I have purple nails right now too, but they don’t look as good as yours! Love the video and technique……sigh, just wish I could have it all!!

  12. Thanks for the great video! I like how you do a voiceover in your videos, so we don’t just sit watching you wave your hands as you talk. And of course – your techniques are so lovely! Love the glittered word effect…must get some microfine glitter! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Great video! Great manicure! Thanks for taking the time and effort to share the ideas with us. Hope life is treating you well and that Lila Grace is settling in πŸ™‚

  14. Fabulous card Jennifer! And I believe it’s the first I saw your nails in colours in your videos! Cool! πŸ™‚

  15. Love this video!!! I always wondered how the glittered rainbow effect was done. Love it!!!
    And Kristina’s handwriting in a die – awesome! Love your nails. πŸ™‚

  16. Such a great technique. I haven’t seen the micro fine glitter before, but I will check out Simon Says…gotta have some!
    BTW, love the nail color, too! πŸ™‚

  17. Ooooh what a fab idea to colour your own glitter – thanks for the video, I’m definitely going to try this! Love your new dies too … I feel a shopping trip coming!

  18. Great video! Can’t wait to try this technique. Can you list the color copics you used? Love these colors. Thanks

  19. Thank you so much for the video. It was great! I never thought you could use copics on glitter. I thought it would ruin the nib. I’m going to check out the shim. I could really use it. Thanks again, and take care. πŸ™‚

  20. A little birdie at SSS said it’s your b-day…so happy day wishes to you. Thanks for making all of our days brighter πŸ™‚

  21. Love these MB dies. I’m slowly collecting them. Love this one in particular. Thanks for showing this technique. And, Happy Birthday! Hope you are enjoying your special day with your family!

  22. so how does a new mom end up with such lovely fingernails? Wow! My baby is 6 months old and I’m glad to shower everyday! Such a cool technique! I’ll have to remember that for some of the dies I own. Thanks!
