Ultimate Glitter Technique Using Napkins!

Ohhhhh Happy Day!!  Why is it so happy, you might ask?  Well let me tell ya.  It's a HAPPY day when there's GLITTER in it, and today, my friends, I bring you LOTS of glitter!  If you've used Stampin' Up!'s Dazzling Diamonds, then you indeed know the meaning of "Happy".  If you have not used Stampin' Up!'s Dazzling Diamonds then you must run over to your computer and order some right now.  I've never used any glitter that compares to Dazzling Diamonds - it's simply gorgeous.

So on to today's fun project.  I learned of this amazing, wonderful, jaw-dropping technique from Connie Ingram, a fellow Stampin' Up! Sister, from her presentation at one of our Regional Events.  So here's a BIG THANK YOU to Connie! 

April 2017 Update: I still receive many emails and comments about this awesome technique. However, as this blog post and video is a few years old, some of the items used on the cards are no longer available (ie: Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets). Our new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue begins June 1, 2017 - be sure to check back then, as you never know what you will find in our accessories section. Also, the Heat and Stick Powder just retired and is already SOLD OUT. I will be making another Glitter Napkin video once our new catalogue comes out, to show you a different way to create this fun technique!

Supply List (items still available through Stampin' Up! as of April 2017):

I was hoping to find the dimensions for your card here? I see all the links for purchasing but nothing about card size or sizes to cut paper to make the card. This helps some of us! ???
