Technique Tuesday – Glimmer & Glitz Stars

Happy Tuesday!!!! That means that I have a fabulous technique to share with you and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this one! Lots of bling and you can pick whatever color you want!!!!

Glimmer Vellum Stars,

I love love love Silver and BLING….add in a pop of color and it screams my name!!!!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Silver Glimmer Paper, Cardstock, Sponge Dauber, Star Framelits, Big Shot, Stamps & Ink

Start off with a card base of 4-1/4″ x 11″ in Whisper White and adhere a piece of Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum on top measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Vellum can be tricky to adhere because you can see where the adhesive is since it is partially clear. With this card, you don’t have to worry about your adhesive because it is covered by the Whisper White decorative piece. Then using a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″, you will place the third largest star from the Star Framelits on the bottom half and run it through your Big Shot! Now using your Sponge Daubers, brush the edges of the white rectangle and the punched out star! You can use the star on the inside of your card or for a completely different project! Stamp your greeting to the top of the white rectangle and then add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the corners of your white rectangle. You can add maybe 1 or 2 in the middle if you like them a lot like me! Place that on your card front. Now using the 2nd smallest Star Framelit, cut out a star in Silver Glimmer Paper! You will adhere this star in the center of your cut out star on your card front. Adhere with Snail Adhesive! You can place your cut out white star on the inside of your card! For the card above, I used Blackberry Bliss and the Endless Wishes Stamp Set!

Red Stars Vellum Glimmer,

For this card, I used Real Red and the Endless Wishes Stamp Set. I added the star to the inside on the top for some extra flare!

Birthday, Stars, Vellum, Glimmer,

For this card, I used Pacific Point and the Remembering Your Birthday Stamp Set! Also, I added in a little Silver Foil Star from the center of the wreath from last week’s post! To see this all in action, check out the Video Tutorial below! Be sure to give it a Thumbs Up if you liked it!!!!

I would like to thank Dawn Griffith for this great idea. She did her’s in all Silver which I loved but I added my flare with the color!!!! Let me know in the comments below which color your favorite was or which color you would like to use for a POP of color!

Happy Stampin’
