This is another old favorite technique that I thought it would be fun to revisit. (You can see my first glitter stenciling technique HERE.) The results are shimmery and fun! Be sure to watch my video for the how-to… along with tips for keeping glitter from being a mess.

Here are the cards from my video along with the main products featured. For the full supply list, scroll down to the thumbnails at the end of this post. For all of my cards, I used Elizabeth Crafts Silk Microfine Glitter and Couture Creations Diecut ‘N Bond. Any fine glitter and double sided tape should give good results, too.

  1. Jennifer,
    These cards are wonderful and easy to make. I have been using Elizabeth Craft’s extra fine glitter for several years and I love how you don’t end up wearing it at the end of your project. I won’t use any other glitter. I never thought about using a stencil because I’ve used the sticky paper with lace and it comes out beautiful… Thanks for all your great tips too.

  2. This is definitely a technique to try! It is great as the glitter does not rub off. Thanks for the inspiration to try something new.

  3. I tried this with another brand of glitter I had (like you, just trying to use up old stocks), but it did not wipe off nicely like the ECD glitter — beware, that most “fine” glitters aren’t fine enough!

  4. Wow. That’s a lot of glitter. My kids just had a glitter “incident” this past week. I still found some on my kitchen counter last night.

  5. I was WOW ‘d by your use of glitter with stencils. I am not a fan of glitter but I may have to try this. Thanks for all your inspiring videos.

  6. So glad that you showed how to use up glitter on a background. Will try it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards.

  7. Loved the technique and couldn’t wait to try it out. Unfortunately the double sided adhesive I used was a bit too sticky and I had trouble getting the stencils off, particularly if there was a lot of open space. I’ve ended up with a couple of gorgeous backgrounds and a few pieces from others which tore when I tried to get the stencils off. I might try Stick it next time.

    1. Mine too. Between the ruined design and the mess made from the glitter I stormed out of my craft room so frustrated. I still dislike glitter. Bummer.

  8. Beautiful cards. I love sparkle! Love elizabeth crafts glitter, they have so many pretty colors and it is very fine.

  9. The cards are gorgeous. Love to use glitter.
    Gives everything a rich look.
    thanks for the tips.

  10. I have been watching your videos are almost nonstop. You are a great instructor. Could you please give me your opinion on the Stupendous embossing powders? They seem to be a good deal but are they good quality?

  11. Absolutely beautiful cards! Thank you so much for sharing yet another wonderful technique! Truly appreciate your inspirations!

  12. My grown children make fun of me trying to use glitter. This post is fantastic. All of your tips make me ready to try it again. Your designs are gorgeous-really like the simple cards with the green/gold strips. (Their favorite laugh is when I was vacuuming up some glitter & forgot to put the holding container on my vacuum. Blew glitter all over the room. That’s when I gave it up!)

  13. I love these cards, they are so beautiful! As always I do not have enough words to express my admiration for you.

  14. I love all your glitter cards but the snowflakes are adorable/beautiful. I’m going to have to get some glitter and try it.

  15. I am pretty new to cardmaking and there are so many products out there ir=t can be ovrwhelming at times.

  16. AMAZING glitter cards. To keep my stencils ” safe ” or really should say “in one piece” instead of using the die-cut bond adhesive– will buy that Pixie spray you used in previous videos. What great products from Pretty Pink Posh.
    Thanks for all your great video tutorials.

  17. Beautiful cards! I have done this technique with metal stencils and had to rub coconut soap on them to keep it from sticking. I love that the mylar stencils come right off the tape.

  18. You did it again!! What an amazing idea to use up my glitter stash and make Gorgeous cards!! Can’t wait to get some more stencils and try this!

  19. I love your use of glitter that stays put. Thanks for all the pointers on keeping glitter stuck and how to clean up the stray flecks.

  20. So many cards. Gorgeous as always! My two favorites are the poinsettia and the penguin. Terrific ideas and your coloring on the penguin is perfect!

  21. Fabulous cards! Your video reminded me to complete a glittered project began months ago. I don’t want to watch your videos so much because they’re hazardous to my pocket – I get this urge to buy all those new stamps, dies and stencils you feature and my hubby is complaining already – but I return to them time and time again because I learn so much. Thank you for being generous with your knowledge.

  22. I am always inspired after watching your videos. Just spent time with Els at the EXPO in Ontario, CA. She would love to see your video. Beautiful cards. Really loved how you cut apart the frame and used them in the opposite way to create a whole new look.

  23. Thank you for the inspiration that you give me. I love having new ideas and running with them. I belonging to a stamping group of 5 ladies where we share ideas and make each other cards just for the fun of it each month. You are always my go to for that months card. Never had a bad card. Thanks again.

  24. I loved watching this video and the older glitter stencil video and seeing how there isn’t only one “right” way to do this project! Thanks for sharing your ideas, Jennifer!
