Technique: Designer Paper Glitter Mosaic!

Share |


Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today I'd like to share a technique that my Stampers Club gals will be doing this week that I call: Designer Paper Glitter Mosaic.

It ties in not only with the fabulous Designer Paper Promotion that's going on in May, but makes an awfully cute Mother's Day card as well.

Those of you who know me understand my *love* of glitter... ultra-fine, chunky, metallic, my old standby Dazzling Diamonds -- it doesn't matter to me. I *heart* them all!

So it should be no great surprise to you that one of the presentations at Stampin' Palooza in October will be alllll about glitter, and will be demonstrated by yours truly.

Designer Paper Glitter Mosaic technique

STEP ONE: Cut a 5.5" x 1.5" strip from our Sticky Pages (these are 12x12" sheets of double-sided sticky heaven, like our Sticky Strip is only BIGGER!). Peel off one side of the protective cover.



STEP TWO: Cut up a strip of Designer Paper into itty bitty pieces. In this case we used the "Tea Party" paper. Lay the pieces onto the sticky paper, leaving small areas in between, like in a mosaic design. Don't stress if pieces go over the edge!



STEP THREE: Lay your piece in a small tray and dump glitter over the whole thing. For this project, I used the Celery glitter from the Chunky Sprinkles collection, but go nutty! Press over the entire surface to make sure the glitter is well-adhered.



STEP FOUR: Be sure to shake off all your excess glitter and then trim the sides. You're all set to add it to your card or scrapbook page as an embellishment!



I hope you enjoyed this technique, and I'll be showcasing a few more cards with it (plus a few twists!) later this week.

Also note that my May e-Newsletter will be sent out tomorrow to my Canadian subscribers -- be sure to sign up if you want to receive it!


Happy stamping,

This is SO cool! And WAY easier than I thought it would be! I'm a hands on learner, so being able to do it as I was learning was great!
 
Love it!
 
OMG, Caroline, this is so cool! I have more DSP and especially retired DSP and I'm on a mission to USE IT - this is a great way because even the smallest scraps can be used - waste not want not! Thanks for the idea!

What a neat idea! I didn't even know that you could buy Sticky Stip in sheet form. This certainly will be a great way to use up those little pieces of DSP that I can't bear to just throw away! Thanks for a great idea!!
 
Wow, I've certainly learned a few new things here! What a beautiful card! Thank you for sharing!
