  1. What a great idea Jennifer! I have so much glitter that I rarely use. The abstract scene dies really work well for using leftovers, scraps or just one type of product to create an entire card.

  2. Thank you, for the card ideas and techniques. Even more, thank you for all the tip and demonstrations and how to control glitter. I seldom use the stuff because it seems to stay everywhere in my studio. Your tips make me brave enough to use my supply of glitter.

  3. Fabulous ideas! I love the stain glass window look and the shaker card! I have so much glitter from past days that I seldom use. Altenew’s sticker paper is fabulous and I am looking forward to trying this technique. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

  4. I LOVE the look of these new dies with this technique! and your tips on keeping it neat are great! Now….can you guarantee I won’t be covered in glitter when I go to work? 🙂 I have to dig up my glitters and get crafting— thank you for the inspiration!

  5. Love this idea. The cards are beautiful and look easy to make. And do I have glitter!! I inherited a drawer full and I hate Glitter. When ever I use it I find it every place except where I intended it to be!

  6. Wow! I love how you used these dies! I’m definitely trying this technique! Your cards are beautiful!

  7. OMGosh I LOVE LOVE LOVE these cards and I thank you so much for the easy to follow video tutorial!!

  8. I have the radial heart die, thanks for a new idea and I really like the new abstract dies from Altenew. I have one of their subscription programs and becoming one of my favorite sites. Loving their products.

  9. How fun! You’re right, I have a whole tote with glitter that I never use but sure am going to try this one to use some of it up. The heart card and the leave card were my favorites. And I just ordered some of those double sided sticky sheets. Yeah!

  10. You are a clever girl….so much glitter and now a way to share it. Thank you. Love the use of the acetate sheets to contain any errant bits. Altenew scores again with those awesome dies.

  11. The Abstract Seascape is my favorite, but than again, they are all beautiful. What a great way to use up the glitter that’s sitting in a drawer. Thanks for showing how to use it with less mess! Lol!

  12. Your cards a beautiful! I really love the leaf die card the best! As you said I have tons of glitter in my stash that I rarely use! I cannot wait to take an afternoon and make a tone of these glittery cards!! I saved both this video and your last glitter video to refer back too!!

  13. Glitter? What glitter? Oh yeah…..the two shoeboxes of glitter I’ve had for years!
    What a great way to use up some of it, Jennifer! Love your ‘no-mess’ technique. I think that is what I hated about using glitter. My face had glitter for days when I used it!
    Love these cards, using the awesome new Altenew dies, and can’t wait to dig deep to get out my glitters and give your ideas a go! Thanks for sharing!

  14. Awesome cards once again Jennifer and thanks for the encouragement to get out that glitter and use it! I have tons! Great new products from Altenew!

  15. I have glitter from 10 years ago that I don’t use anymore because it is the gift that keeps on giving. I really appreciate your tips, and the idea of using the adhesive sheets and acetate really are genius, thank you so much. Your cards are beautiful!

  16. Spectacular cards!
    I especially love the one with all of the colorful hearts!
    Thanks for all you do for crafters!

  17. I love that abstract seascape card. I still have your other stained glass video in my favorites too.

  18. Your cards are stunning! I loved all the tips in the video! It was very satisfying to watch it all come together as well. I am feeling inspired to go play with glitter now!!
