Thanks - No-Mess Sparkle | The Stamp Market

Sparkle is everywhere during the Holidays! It's one time of year I simply can't get enough.
The rest of the year, I'm a little less keen on finding and cleaning iridescent bits through the house ;)
But, in recent years, I'm happy to report things have been changing around here. 
 Since I've started using different techniques for adhering my glitter - mainly by finishing things off with a top coat - I find myself adding sparkle to things well outside the Holiday season. 
Yay for sparkle every day!

Today's card is a Valentine/Thank You mash up...Which was perfect for a giant glittery base!
I made two of the same design - one with a topcoat finish and one without and obvi, what a difference it makes! Though I will say, using a super strong adhesive to adhere the glitter can go a long way in holding things in place sans top-coat.
The adhesive I reach for most frequently are these double sided sheets.

For the background of my card, I started things off with Fine Lines background embossed in gold, and added accent diamonds, stamped with the Floral Diamond set.  
Atop that, I layered my chunky, glittery circle - I will put up a quick vid of it on insta because it looks so much prettier irl! And to finish things off, I added my large sentiments - using the Lots of Thanks stamp set and Something Extra alphas.

It's so fun to add a little snazz to a card once in a while! Thanks for popping in!

  1. Hi Ivana! I was smiling all through your little “sparkle” story and boy, can I relate! I put 3 or 4 matte finish top coats on my glittery snow drifts and only the edges had glitter. ! So I can totally relate! Your card is so pretty, I love your color and layout design! I’m giving the double sided adhesive a try, thanks for the tip! 😊

    1. LOL! If only glitter had a self-clean option included! I hope the double sided tape helps - but I will say, it does shed a little! If you're in a no-glitter-falling-at-all mood, I'd still stick with the coating! When I use the double sided method - I use less glitter and make sure to press it in very firmly and then dust the excess off with a brush. Works pretty well and I see minimal fall off. Hope that helps! Thanks so much for visiting, Stephanie! xo

  2. Oh, so gorgeous!! Love all the layers and all the sweet shiny glitter!!

  3. The fine lines background is so neat & I love your uniquely beautiful card, Ivana! I've never brushed a top coat over glitter as I thought the brush would pick up the glitter. May try it as I do love putting glitter on cards.
