Glitter and Stencils With Ruth Hamilton

If you love all things sparkly you will love making glittery backgrounds for your cards. You really have to see this card in real life to appreciate the shine!

I have used the Butterfly Background Stencil but you could use whatever stencil you like and follow the steps.

What you will need

White card

5x7 Craft Perfect Bright White card

Craft Perfect Speciality Paper (Deep Sea Dive)

Craft Perfect Tropical Tide Glitter Card

Tim Holtz Torn Edge Trimmer

Nuvo Glacier Paste (Frostbite)

Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter - (Turquoise, Violet Infusion and Hot Pink)

Tonic Studios With Love Sentiment Strip die set

Laguna Bay Ink

Nuvo Periwinkle Blue Sequins

Tools - Craft Spoon and Media Spatula

How to make it

Step 1

Cut an 11cm x 14cm rectangle of white card with the Torn Edge Trimmer. Tape the stencil to the card and secure to the work surface.

Step 2

Tape the stencil to the card and secure to the work surface.

Step 3

Carefully remove the stencil.

Step 4

Gently tap the Turquoise glitter over the centres of the butterflies, using the craft spoon. Do NOT tap off the excess.

Step 5

Next add some Violet Infusion glitter.

Step 6

Add some Hot Pink glitter to the butterflies and flowers.

Step 7

Tap off the excess glitter and dry with a heat tool. This sets the glitter to the Glacier Paste.

Step 8

Sponge ink around the edges and add sequins to the panel. Cut an 11.5cm x 14.5cm of Tropical Tide Glitter card and glue together.

Step 9

Glue a 12cm x 17cm rectangle of Deep Sea Dive paper to the 5x7 card and then glue the glitter panel on top.

Step 10

Die cut the sentiment from glitter card and the back plate from white card. Glue together and glue across the centre of the card at an angle.
