Michelle's First Glitter Tutorial!

Michelle here today with the first of two glitter tutorials!

My first card uses CLR023A Mini Butterflies 2, D023 Mini Butterflies Die, CLR033 Spring Flourished Ovals, D033 Flourished Oval Die.

This technique involves a sheet of Red Line Tape which I cut into quarters.  I am using a Cheery Lynn Designs Die called FRM118 Daisy Lace Frame.   I cut the tape sheet with my die using the Big Shot and the metal adapter plate that works so dandy with these intricate dies.
Next I popped out all of the pieces leaving just the frame.  Peel off the backing and apply carefully to your cardstock.
Then comes the messy part!  Peel off the redline liner and apply your glitter to the exposed tape!
And then my favorite part...when I can clean up the mess and have an amazing background to create on!
I will leave you with another card using this same die and technique.  It always amazes me what a difference changing a color scheme can make!  With the endless combinations of Prickley Pear images and coordinating dies, there is no end to the fun cards you can come up with!

My second card uses: CLR037 Fall Leaves, D037 Leaf Set Die, CLR023A Mini Butterflies 2, D023 Mini Butterflies Die, CLR012 Flowers and D012 Flowers Die.

I will be back with another amazing glitter technique soon!  I've been busy in the studio today...and I'm glitter from head to toe!  I'm proud to say my dust bunnies wear glitter in this house!  :)
