Tutorial ~ Dec. 26th

Hi everyone, I did this tutorial over at Frosted Designs last week and you might have seen it there.. If you did I hope you enjoyed it and if you didn't I hope you give it a try... 
This is a quick and easy way to add a little sparkle to your layouts and/or cards by using die cuts and glitter and a few other household things!

Things you will need:
Cardstock Paper
Die Cut Templates or Punches ~ I'm showing you a few different samples.. You can also use cuts from your Cricut Cartridges...
Packing Tape
Glitter ~ I used Martha Stewart Sugar Coating Glitter
Scissors


Punch or cut out your images...








Now comes the tricky part... Take a piece of the tape, sticky side up..be sure you don't get your fingerprints on the part of the tape you're going to put the glitter on or it will show... now with the right side up, stick the die cut on the tape..






sprinkle glitter over the die cut. Press the glitter with your fingers down into the cuts/holes..







Now brush off the glitter and with your scissors cut around the image as close as you can... and here are the results...













And here you can see what I did with the ornaments... I added lilac glitter on these..









A quick and easy way to add bling!!!!  I love it and I hope you do too!!
And you can see the layout I did with the butterflies here..    If you haven't visited Frosted Designs, please do, you will find all kinds of inspiration from the Design Team  and we have challenges for everyone!! 
Thanks for dropping by and come back anytime!!! 
Have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs!!!

It's such a clever idea! I haven't tried it yet, but I intend to impress a VERY crafty friend of mine, CArin. :) There's not a lot she hasn't shared with me that she's done, so I might just impress her! LOL :)

Love the tutorial!
