Sparkle & Shine

by Dorathy Gilchrist

 

One product that is great for glittering are Sticky Cut Letters by Stampin' Up. Because they are large, most types of glitter will adhere well to the letters and shapes.

 

Tip: For smaller or more detailed embellishments, use finer glitter, like the kind from Clearsnap.com, Doodlebug, or prisma glitter from Hero Arts. Finer glitter is easier to adhere with multiple types of adhesive, including tapes and glue dots.

 

Chipboard and Grungeboard are great sturdy surfaces for glittering. Use a layer of Glossy Accents on top of the glitter to add shine. Notice how fine-grained glitter works well for the small accents below.
