VIDEO Using Glitter with Your Stencils

Hi there and happy Thursday!  I'm Tara and I am here with a fabulously sparkly way to use your stencils!  I have been dying to use the Christmas Quilt Stencil from the new September Mint Owl Studio release and decided it was perfect to try out an idea I've had brewing in my mind!

To start, I used Post-It tape to mask off the back of my card base and then place my stencil over the top of the front of the card.  I then used my palette knife to apply Ranger Multi Medium Matte over the top of the stencil just like I would apply embossing paste.  After carefully peeling the stencil away to reveal the gorgeous pattern left behind I poured generous amounts of glitter right over the top.  After tapping off the excess I was left with the beautiful, intricate stencil pattern in shiny, sparkly glitter!

This worked so well I had to test to see if it was a fluke so I made a second card using some pretty holiday red glitter and it worked like a charm!  I cannot wait to use this technique to create all kinds of backgrounds!  I feel like I finally found something to do with all that glitter I've been hoarding all these years!

I finished the cards up with some sentiments from the Banner Sentiments 2 stamp set heat embossed on the Mini Banner die cuts, all from Mint Owl Studio!  A few Pretty Pink Posh sequins and these super sparkly cards are done!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what you all create with this fun and easy technique!  See you next time!  Bye!


  1. These are so awesome Tara. I don't have any stencils yet but I am def. going to try to get some soon so I can try this! Love both of these. I think I am going to try this as soon as possible!
    (BTW, I had to laugh when you said you "goobered it up!" I say that when I do these things! LOL
