Tuesday Technique - Embossing Paste and Glitter

A quickie technique today. Did you know that when you spread embossing paste through stencils, you can decorate it with glitter before it dries? It's a very easy way to produce some stunning effects, and the glitter sticks well.

In this card, the tree and butterfly are both produced using this technique with Dreamweaver stencils, embossing paste and sprinklings of different coloured glitter. I made a frame from blue holographic card using an old favourite Martha Stewart PATP set, cut out the inner rectangle, and added a peel-off border to the inside edge to disguise the cut marks.


  1. Wow never thought of doing that with my stencils will have to give it a try. Love your card. Love Alison xx

  2. Absolutely stunning card! Love this effect.
